Give your regular rubbery pizza to the dog for a new chew toy and upgrade with today's side deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of award-winning pizza, grinders, and more at Rudino's. Today's deal is good for dine-in or carry-out at the Austin or Cedar Park location.
Rudino's expansive menu excels in the pie-making and baked-sandwich departments, making its pizza dough daily from a molecularly unstable yet surprisingly delicious substance known as scratch. Indulge in a specialty pizza (12"–16") such as the vegetarian delight, packed with fresh mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, and cheese ($13.69–$18.29), or the aptly named meat monster (pepperoni, sausage, ham, meatball, and cheese, $14.89–$19.79). For the best of both worlds, head straight for the Rudino's royale ($16.05–$21.29).
If one hand is too busy keeping you from falling off the cliff, opt instead for an easily handheld oven-baked grinder. Starting with daily homemade fresh bread, sandwiches such as the Rudino's specialty ($6.15 for 9" or $11.49 for 18") are loaded with ham, sausage, salami, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, cheese, tomato, and mayo; the similar veggie, however, swaps the animal carcass for black olives, onions, and lettuce. Other hunger slayers include wings, salads, pastas, and calzones.

- If you haven’t tried Rudino’s yet, you need to. The food is made fresh everyday. They make their own dough, baked their own bread, make their own sauce, grate their own cheese, slice their own meats and vegetables and very much pride themselves on making sure you are highly satisfied with every aspect of the food and service either while dining in or taking it home. – Dining 512
- We love this place for the whole family. Griders [sic] are great but the pizza rocks. My favorite feature is that they put the cheese ON TOP of all the toppings. Good deal on a night out with the kids and the atmosphere is just right. – RichardM1, Citysearch
- Whenever I'm in the mood for some real good tasting pizza this is the place to go. – Pree, Urbanspoon
The brother-sister team behind Rudino's Pizza and Grinders opened the eatery's first location in 1995 in Cary, North Carolina. They wanted to create a restaurant that incorporated an onsite bakery into its design, keeping the kitchen full of fresh, housemade dough for pizzas and sandwiches. It was a concept that proved successful, and now Rudino's has locations all across the country.
In these kitchens, cooks coat crusts with a sauce based on the duo's family recipe, and then layer on any number of ingredients—including fresh basil, jalapeños, and bacon. They also slide open-faced grinders into ovens after loading them with such sandwich fixings as italian sausage, salami, and fresh vegetables, which are never frozen, canned, or taken from a neighbor's crisper.
