This place hit the spot incredible and tasty food at a good price. Love the atmosphere and the people that work here they were very helpful and always had a smile on there face. The chicken was juicy and tender one of the best places in S.A for chicken. The sides went perfect with it a good portion and pack with flavor. Your in S.A you must drop by

Everything was perfection so much flavor in the Brisket it just was Amazing and my mom had the Mac Attack i had half by the way after asking her to cut it in half about 10 times so i can try and it was the bomb what a Genius idea 2 of my favorite foods in a Burger.

We've been eating here from day one. Reasonably priced for excellent food. Just right quantities. Staff are quick and courteous always. I have been eating different meats or sides and now, sandwiches. Going to try the entire menu eventually!

This was our 2nd visit. I'm a lover of the ribs. I cannot brag enough about this food. Everything was on point; ribs, sides, and sweet tea. The service was friendly and professional. I think this is the best bbq in San Antonio...maybe even Texas. If you come to San Antonio to visit or live here make The Rusty Bucket your BBQ home!

I recently bought this family order for my family on a Saturday. The brisket is amazing! The sides are so good too! The entire family loves it. Even my picky kids! Lol. Rusty's has always been the best bbq place for me and my family. We live in the area and I have also worked in the area as well so it was always our go to place for lunch. We would even order to go if we didn't have time to stay and eat. The staff and service is always excellent! The best thing about your bbq is weather it was with my family or with co-workers, it brought us together for a meal❤️

This order was the answer to the getting a variety of meats and not having to cook. It took us all weekend to eat it all! Obviously generous portions. The place is always clean. Personnel friendly, courteous and efficient. We love that its close to home. Of course we miss dining in. The decor is really special. Love watching our 5 year old look at the antiques.

OMG!! This is a BBQ gem in the Westside of San Antonio! The Brisket, jalapeño sausage and especially the turkey are goooood! For sides I had the spicy green beans and the cream corn were tasty and fresh. My husband had the 2 meat plate with potato salad and beans and those were tasty as well. The beans were on point 👌. I actually called my order in and mentioned I was to dine in since I had a short time for lunch and thry were very accommodating. The Rusty Bucket is a must try. 🤤

Spicy Green Beans

Best green beans I've ever had! I will literally pick my meats to go with the green beans. :) Every choice of meat is fantastic so adding the green beans is just a plus. The green beans include sliced jalapeño peppers and are seasoned perfectly. Recommend highly!

I love how everything is all in one big, tasty sandwich! Don't get me started on the BBQ sauce which is a must. The spicy BBQ sauce is a kicker so if you are down for some fire then go for it. I substituted my chips for potato salad and I was not disappointed in the freshness and flavor of it. It came with utensils, a self-served drink, pickles, onions, and if you love bbq sauce then ask for extra ! Keep up the great job brother Ray! THANKS FOR THE JAW SMACKING BBQ🔥👍🏼😎❤️

This was my husband's meal today. He got brisket and chicken, with slaw and beans. He loved everything. His only (slightly) negative comments: He prefers his mayo-based slaw to have more mayo flavor, and he prefers his beans to be unspiced (just salt/pepper/pork), and these beans were seasoned beyond that. Also, more pickles would have been appreciated (add me to that, but I can't get enough pickles!). But overall, he gives them a 9/10 (or 5/5), which is very high praise indeed for him. We will be ordering again. We have driven past there dozens of times, and we wanted to try the food. We are so glad we finally did. So full, and so happy!
