We were looking for wings, and ended up at Rudy’s. We were not disappointed. Fresh cut fries were perfect, and so were the wings. Fun atmosphere in the back room, too.

Hey if you like a good burger, Rudy's is a great place to go! I also found their blackened salmon sandwich very tasty! However, if you're a Budweiser fun, you might be disappointed as they do not offer any Anheuser products.

We had a nice dinner, food was good but nothing spectacular but the homemade fries were a lot better than the usual frozen ones you usually get. The waitress was amazing even though they were busy.

Menu items sounded good. Ate the hamburger and pulled pork combo sandwich. House fries (chips?) were tasty, so were the waffle fries. Servers, while friendly, were slow to take order, bring/refill water. By the time they even came by to ask how the food was,...More
