No surprises just solid good Mexican food outing. Reasonable prices, good service. We went on a week night a little later dinner hour. Place had a couple of other tables eating so of course we had attentive and prompt service. Service was friendly and helpful. Would recommend the shrimp cocktail for appetizer, would not recommend the ceviche. All the entrees... More

This is one of our go to places for Mexican food. To be fair it's been about 4 months since our last visit. At that time it was really decent. This time not so much. We started off with espinaca dip. It was like dipping in milk. Wouldn't stick to chips:( my husband always gets the Mexican chili. He said... More

One of my favorite Mexican places in all of Kansas City! You can really never go wrong here- no matter what you order. Friday's are always the busiest, but the wait is worth it!

Big plates of food and good. When all the other places are packed this is a good place to go on the weekend.

I've ate lunch and dinner here a lot. Very good food and quick service. I'd rate it as excellent, but it is one of the few that charges for chips and salsa before your meal. The tacos at lunch are great with parmesan cheese on them a house specialty. They have excellent food thru out the menu, but the tamales... More

We were promptly seated and the drink orders taken which came right away. Entrees were delivered quickly as well and were well prepared and tasty. The refried beans were excellent... More

We had dinner here and were so happy we chose it. Their chips are so light and crispy with really good salsa. We also ordered fresh guacamole to go with our chips , it was delicious. The frozen margaritas were tasty. Our dinners were very good and would definitely come back when in K.C. The staff is very friendly and... More

We have been to Rudy's at least 30 times. The fish tacos are really good and so is everything else we have had. They have tasty frozen margaritas, but can also make excellent "on the rocks" margaritas with top-shelf tequila. Many of our "out-of-town" friends have been taken to Rudy's.
