we were there for my husband's birthday Sunday and although we went there with a party of 30 people, Rudy's accommodated us graciously and provided us with great service, great food and drinks!

It's our first visit, lured in by other good reviews. And we were not disappointed! I had fish and beef tacos, my friends had salad and enchiladas with black beans instead of ref ried ! And they could not finish - too big! Tasted better the next day!

The food looked good but the fajitas were not too tasty. The good news is no one got sick. The atmosphere is authentic.

This is our go to above all others in the SGV. Located in the heart of Old Town Monrovia is as good as it gets. Never had a bad meal there in the nearly 20 years of going there. We've tried others but always go back to them.

I went here last week and was nicely surprised to the staff and food. It was a random visit based on choices in the area. This was a place to return to. The steak was perfectly cooked, and I like rare. The accompaniments (rice and beens, etc) were perfectly done too. The bar staff were great to get the adjustments... More

Wish Rudy's would offer vegetarian options. There's chicken stock in just about everything for flavoring so not suitable for vegetarians. This breaks my heart as I had many burritos and enchiladas here until learning that while they say it's vegetarian, there's chicken in the stock.

Had lunch here the other day. Rudy himself came out to say hello. The food is outstanding. I had the Carne Asada plate, which was brimming with tender steak, beans, rice, and a pile of fresh tortillas. Delicious. Apparently, they have fresh goat once a week, and party weekends!

Everything is wonderful at Rudy's from the daily soup (could be, lentil, fideo, shells and vegetable, etc) wonderful home made soups. The burritos, tacos, salads, Sunday brunch, you name it, it is always fresh and delicious. Excellent value too :)

OK, not great, Mexican food. Prices are reasonable. Carnitas tacos were not flavorful. Seafood chili relleno (the house specialty) smelled slightly fishy and flavors were not too fresh. Refried beans were excellent. Margarita mix was too sweet for my taste. Servers were extremely nice. I don't recommend this restaurant unless you have to have Mexican food in uptown Monrovia and...
