This is a great place to eat. The restaurant is spacious, clean and well maintained. Three of us went on a busy Friday night and still received excellent service. Our pleasant waiter kept things moving and was right on top of our needs. The big menu has a fantastic variety of items as well as there are daily specials. The... More

All day breakfast, pages and pages of food choices, reasonable prices make this establishment one of my go-to places to eat. Try the desserts or take one for the road. Stop in for ice cream with every topping possible. The daily specials are fantastic. I recommend everything.

We stop at this restaurant almost every Sunday on our way home from the Southern Delaware shore points. They offer a wide variety of food choices and serve large portions at very reasonable prices.

The woman that runs the place needs meds the servers are on too many meds. Average diner food. Breakfast foods are way better than dinner.

Southern Delaware Americana for sure but good service in a diner atmosphere. We had wraps that were tasty. Give the place a 4 because served dinner with white bread and did not offer a whole wheat pasta option.

J., thanks for stopping by to see us for a meal! We like our white bread here, but you're right that we could add some other multi-grain or whole wheat options just to spice it up a bit. Thank you for your feedback -- I look forward to having you back again next time you pass through Harrington. Until then,... More

We usually eat at Rudy's after a night out at the casino.. Food at late night is great.. Cody and Zack are the best... Today, we went for lunch... Not the same.. Our waitress was more interested in what was going on in the restaurant, then taking down our order.. After taking our order, she went to two other tables... More

Sakimas, I'm disappointed to hear the service you got during lunch didn't stack up to what you've come to expect from dinner. Especially with the slightly longer-than-normal ticket time, we could have done better to communicate with you during the wait. Whether it's for a late-night meal or another try at lunch, I hope to have you back again soon.... More

We stopped at Rudy's for lunch and was pleasantly surprised! I had read the reviews and Rudy's so I was looking forward to a great lunch.
