mkisofs is certainly a very straightforward way to do it.
mkisofs -dvd-video -o ./foo.img ./mounted_dvd_dir/
That image can be burned by any software that supports dvd burning.
Of course theres plenty of applications that "gui-fy" and make it easy like
Nero or K3b. If your a CLI kind of person use growisofs or cdrecord-prodvd
i.e. growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=./foo.img
where /dev/dvd is the device of your DVD burner.
