the paseo mall location is not there anymore, the upper state street location food is hit or miss, sometime you get your avocado on your taco sometimes not, and the help is really rude and insulting. don't like the shreaded meat in the taco.

I have been eating at Rudy's for thirty years at least, and look forward to every time. Not much decor to ruin the eating experience. Wow, I'm hungry and Rudy's is only a mile...

Rudy's is really starting to step their game up. It started to slide a bit, but with the renovation and upgrades, I gave it another chance. I was impressed with the food, the service, and the location. I will be back.

I had lunch here, and I liked it. Very tasty and, at the hour I arrived, it wasn't crowded at all. You order at the counter, and the server brings it to you. The cuisine was a cut above average, so I'm rating the joint...More
