Easy to get to - loads of character - pleasant service. My meal however, and maybe it was a bad night - but boy it was lacking in taste. Portion was fine, just no seasoning to speak of. Cute though, and perhaps the best thing...More

Food is so so. Chicken and waffles is not fried chicken! It's actually breaded chicken and it cost $13! Food took awhile to get. Classic diner experience so if that's what you like that's what you'll get. Parking is very difficult.

Rudford's is the place in San Diego for late dinner. Classic 50's and I should know. Breakfast and daily specials. It's so authentic Jimmy Dean might sit next to you.

We were very impressed with this diner. Quick friendly service, nice atmosphere and ambience. Food was good and tasty. Parking available round the back. The only thing that let the place down was having to pay 25cents to spend a penny. Seriously!!!!
