Rudy’s Bar-B-Q (Austin, TX)

Barbeque is pretty much the peak of my eating aspirations for our road trip. And while we’d hit some good brisket at George’s Restaurant in Post, TX I had to write about this place too. Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q came recommended from locals and showed up in a few touristy guides. It’s a little bewildering at first, not only because of the unfamiliar set up, but because of how busy it is. But quickly one of the staff, a sort-of maître d’barbeque gave us a run down of the place, how it works and then sent us over to the counter. We received a huge, and I mean surprisingly huge despite the warnings, welcome “for a couple of Kiwi rookies” from everyone behind the counter before getting to try a few samples and make our picks. We were having such a good time at this point that it almost wouldn’t have mattered what we ate. But for the record, two types of briskett and two types of ribs plus creamed corn and banana pudding. All delicious, but I recommend the juicy briskett. If you want to try some Texas barbeque in Austin, I couldn’t imagine a better pick.

    I like the write up and the photos were awesome! That does look like some mighty moist brisket as well. Plain white bread though? Explain please.
