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!
A very good, solid mustard-based potato salad. I love mustard potato salad, and this one is one of the best I have had. Delicious, and will be something I order every time!
Best Barbque restaurant in San Antonio anytime i have a gathering or party this the place where i get my food from.
Actually got the regular family meal but I added the smoked turkey the brisket was awesome the smoked turkey was delicious and the sausage was good they made me the coleslaw with the vinegar it was so good the beans were good I prefer this barbecue then the other one in San Antonio that's real famousI also recommend it to my family and my daughter actually went last night and my sister is going to go
Great smoke ring on the brisket and the sausage is great as well.
I haven't had a like this in forever. Keep up the great work .
It ain't Kraft out of the box. But kids will love it. Even big ones like me! Yummy for the tummy.
Oh Lawd!! Best Brisket ever! I'm all about the mom and pop shop bbq places. But this place, by far has the best brisket ever ! I've been living in SA for five years now and just when I thought I had the best bbq place picked out, I was proven wrong! Great brisket, hands down!
The bbq here is amazing! Best bbq in sa! Definitely recommend...
Needed a quick bite and found this place on Google maps. My girl was kind of sketchy because of the location but I went anyways. Turned out she loved it as much as I did. We stop by every now and then. 👍
The ribs are my favorite, I normally have lunch their during the weekdays and eat there 3-4 times a month. The their meats are perfectly juicy, nothing never served dry, and cooked to perfection. I've had all their side dishes, but their potato salad is so so good. BBQ sause is kickass! Love this place, as do so many customers. My lunch is at 11am, and we beat the crowds. Great Tasting BBQ!👍
I've seen the sign for a long time and went last week to try it. It was sooooo good the meat just fell apart. The best BBQ I will go back a lot.👍
It was the most tastiest brisket I have tasted.I will certainly come back for more.
I have oredered the chop sandwich and a family size with 2 meats. (Suasage and brisquet) with side items. I need to say I love their food!!! The mac n cheese is awesome! Clean place to eat. 😊 Definetely a 5 star!!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Brisket and the creamy corn is sooo delicious !!!
I mean the whole menu is delicious it my favorite is the loaded baked potato, it has brisket , cheese, butter, sour cream, bbq sauce and it really is loaded .. stuffed and over filling .. simple delicious 😋.. by far best bbq in San Antonio
First time love the brisket sandwich!!
I picked up curb side for lunch today. The brisket was delicious. Omg ! The potato salad was so good 😊 .
Mmm, creamed corn. A good rendition of one of my favorite barbecue sides, creamy with specks of pepper. Sweet, bordering on dessert-sweet, but kept in check with the hints of heat from the pepper. Will definitely order again!
I was drawn in by the picture. I am not, by and large, a big homestyle mac-and-cheese person. I like Kraft. Sorry, that's just me. But the picture on DoorDash looked so good, I couldn't get it out of my mind. I had to try it. So I ordered it, and I am so glad I did! I probably wouldn't be a big fan of the mac on its own, but on the sandwich, it made everything so creamy and good. I added some pickles and some sauce, and that made one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. It is a messy, gooey, soft and squishy sandwich, with lots of thick, fatty brisket. So amazing, and so filling! My husband and I were very pleased with almost the entire order, and The Rusty Bucket is definitely on our BBQ radar now. Looking forward to our next order!
Brisket is best in town!
The Food Was amazing! It is so good! I don't know how you do it! But it is really good! Y'all are blessed to have a wonderful restaurant! Thank you for all you do! Please stay safe!
Took the wife and kids today. They absolutely loved it
Rusty Bucket is da bomb! Fall apart tender in your mouth brisket, almost doesn't need the sauce because of the rub. But order extra anyway. The stuff is addictive. Should've never turned my kids onto the sides. Now all I hear is "Rust-T-Buck-It." The oldest is learning to cuss. Wonder how long that will take...? Saturdays will never be the same...
Best brisket on the West Side, by far. And the sauce? Muy perfecto! Don't let yourself die before you try real Texas BBQ.
The ribs are awesome. Juicy and tasty and the bbq sauce is amazing as well.
Best sandwich ever! All 3 meats in a sandwich, delicious!
I tried the lone ranger & WOW this was by far the best most juiciest sandwich I've ever had it was so GOOD! There is something on this menu for everyone you will fall in love 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Have to get the 3 meat here because everything is so good. Best bbq for the quality & the value.
I loved that the Brisket was so Tender and juicy
Outstanding brisket and sides. Nice, friendly atmosphere and clean surroundings. All this in San Antonio. Can't ask for anything more.
When I couldn't find turkey at other restaurants y'all came through! It was delicious and so was the chicken, green beans & corn! My family will be ordering again today. Thank you all for providing curbside.
The brisket was amazing!!
So, my husband talk me into going to this bbq place That's on the opposite side of town of where we live. Honestly I was skeptical at first, Due to the location...however I was extremely satisfied with Our meal From the minute we walked in the door, the smell of bbq was intoxicating & outstanding customer service. Since it was our first time eating at "The rusty bucket" the cashier suggested the 3 meat platter with 2 sides & a drink. We tried bbq chicken & brisket, with sausage link of course with some pinto beans & creamy potato salad and let's not forget ,some Texas tea & they DID NOT disappoint!! Unfortunately due to the covid19 pandemic we had to enjoy our meal in our car, however again it was truly worth the drive. 😋 We now have a New BBQ hot spot🤫.
Awesome meal. I am on a keto diet, so I can truly say that the Rusty Bucket can be keto friendly with their awesome green beans, spicy and tasty to the bite. The turkey was the juiciest I have tasted in San Antonio; usually the smoked turkey is hard to find juicy. It dries up too quickly. The Rusty Bucket knows hows to do it. Thanks.
It was completely amazing super delicious and fresh, this has to be the best bbq place!
this is my and hubby favorite. so delicious..... we come and get one about once a week lol try and you wont be disappointed!!!!
