Recent Rubys Barbeque & Catering Co Reviews

A diner from Austin, TX gave an overall rating of 5  out of 5 stars on May 12, 2007 @ 1:01 PM

 Ruby's has the best BBQ in town. Period! The brisket is so smooth that it melts on your tongue, the BBQ sauce is just a hint hot (unlike so many others that think they can impress you serving a sauce that burns the living daylights out of you), everyone on staff actually listens instead of trying to sell you on the "recommendation of the day (or the chef, whichever comes first)", the chicken is great, and as it is custom in a good southern kitchen you will never run short of hot steamy bread and real butter. Great to sit down and eat Texas style, take out, or have them cater.

 Rubys BBQ is unique compared to the million and one other barbeque places in this town. They play good blues and also serve vegetarian friendly food items. Almost all the people who work there are in a band or were in a band at one point. Everything on their menu is excellent and they put alot heart in everything they make. This isnt your yuppified, stuffed shirt kinda place. Rubys is a place you want to take your friends and family to have a good time and eat real good food.

Mann's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que  5  out of 5 stars
Barbecue, Catering
 One of my top fave BBQ places, but the least expensive. Tasty, variety of choice, home-style sides, soft drinks in a bottle or fountain. This place is a throw-back to real BBQ of the 50s, before things became commercial. Brought one of my picky frien ...

 I'll get straight to the point... skip it. Just drive the extra quarter mile to Rudy's for BBQ. Everyone raves about J's fajita meat... skip it... drive the extra half mile to Flores. Breakfast tacos are a joke. The "ham" in the ham & egg tacos... it ...

Rudy's Bbq  2  out of 5 stars
Barbecue, Catering
 Rudy's flavor profile is simple: black pepper. So, if you tend to put black pepper on everything, then you'll love Rudy's. This place really took off after Texas became the alternate living choice for Californians. I lived in CA for a few years and ...

 Service was great! We travelled from San Antonio just to eat lunch. We were a bit disapointed with the brisket (too dry and almost no taste). The ribs and sausage were good as were the pinto beans (just like my mom used to make them). The beer wa ...
