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🔥👍🏼😎❤️

2 Meat with 2 Sides

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!

Potato Salad

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!

Brisket

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!

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. 👍

Ribs w/ 2 Sides

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!👍

Family Order

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❤️

Brisket was very tender, potato salad very creamy, sausage well done, all the food is great

Creamy Corn

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!

The Mac Attack

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!

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...

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🤫.
