[mappress mapid=”43″]Ruby’s is one of the places that got me to Austin. When my buddy Dale migrated out to Texas 20+ years ago he ranted and raved about how great this tiny little barbecue house was. I had it at the top of my list, along with Salt Lick and Sam’s as places I had to try once I finally landed on the ground in Austin.
It’s still one of the best barbecue joints in town. Get a quarter chicken and side salad with gorgonzola (the best salad dressing in a restaurant in Austin.) I don’t get by Ruby’s too often anymore but it’s still hallowed barbecue ground in these parts.
