This restaurant features backwoods barbecue with not-so-traditional side dishes, including collard greens and vinaigrette coleslaw. Musical legends such as Buddy Guy and Maceo Parker have dined here, and the restaurant decor reflects this down-home blues appeal. The restaurant serves the only barbecue made with all-natural beef in Texas and a house sauce that is one of the tastiest around. Beer and wine are offered. Catering is also available. See their website for further information.
I learned about this place from some buddies who attended nearby UT Austin. This place has by far the best BBQ I have tasted. The sauce had just the right consistency and flavor. The beans were good and had a little kick to them. I recomend the chili, it is made with meat and has no veggies in it. The brisket was excellent, you can taste the difference in the type of beef they use. But, of course I have to recomend the ribs. They are the best ribs (even better than mine) I have ever tasted.
It could do with some better decor, but I am not picky when it comes to good food. A value for the money.
I have heard people rave about Rudy's for some time and I finally tried the one on 620 near 2222. I would have to say that it was the most tender, flavorful barbeque that I have ever tasted. The ribs fell off the bone and the brisket was moist, tender, and spiced just right. And the service... amazing! The staff is so friendly and enthusiastic. I was asked if I had been there before and they made a big deal out of it and gave me samples. It was a lot of fun!
Another note: They have this high tech hand cleaning machine. Kind of out of place for a BBQ joint but fun nonetheless. The restaurant and bathrooms were very very clean, too.
