Restaurant Description

Expanding on the original location in Bastrop is Cartwright's Barbecue, an authentic Texas-Style joint that serves quality smoked meats and homemade sides all at a very reasonable price. Since the original store opened in Bastrop, Cartwright's has expanded closer to the Austin area. Beginning with the location off of 290 West and finishing with the newest location in the pristine Southpark Meadows Shopping Center.

We have kept the tradition of quality barbecue at Cartwright's alive while adding to the menu more quality sides and our own secret barbecue sauce recipe. From scalloped potatoes to macaroni and cheese, the sides are delicious and compliment the meat well. Cartwright's uses a traditional wood fired pit to smoke the meat and we sell it by the pound or in combo plates. Everything is good, from the brisket to the ribs, sausage and chicken. You'll find the chicken has a great smoky flavor and comes in larger portions than typical barbecue joints. The flavorful brisket comes in both lean and moist cuts. Cartwright's hot sausage is also a favorite, famous from the original Bastrop location.

It's tough to find a better value than at Cartwright's. During the week Cartwright's offers daily lunch specials at low as $6.75 and sandwich combo as low as $4.99. You'll find even more value with their family packs and catering services. Cartwright's specializes in catering and will set you up with a full barbecue spread sure to satisfy the hunger of any large group or social gathering you might have. Cartwright's also provides a delivery service for those folks who want to enjoy the tasty barbecue without having to leave their house.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
