Rudy's Country Store & Bar-B-Q

2451 S. Capital of Texas Hwy.
Austin, TX, 78746, United States
TEL: (512) 329-5554

This barbecue institution began as a small addition to a general store in the Texas Hill Country town of Leon Springs. Since then, it has expanded to locations throughout Texas, with a few in neighboring states, too. The look is indeed that of a Texas country store. Place orders at the counter for smoked meats such as brisket, St. Louis-style ribs, chopped beef, jalapeño sausage, and turkey, which are sold by the pound or half-pound. Sides such as green chile stew, and desserts like peach cobbler, are sold separately. The secret to Rudy's barbecue flavor is thought to be their use of fire pits with oak and a special dry rub. 

Insider Tip:

If you’re a first-timer at Rudy’s, let them know at the counter. They will let you sample anything on the menu before ordering.
