This little gem is located in a strip mall. The interior is exceptionally nice and the décor is lovely. I was warmly greeted and served by an attentive young lady that met my every need. Their food is outstanding. I ordered the stuffed grape leaf appetizer and the ‘Lahmacun,’ a pizza of hand tossed dough covered in delectable spicy ground... More

Needed to get off hiway for rush hour and decided to grab dinner. Ended up a few minutes farther than we wanted and Siri came up with Rudy's Mediterranean Grill and Diner. Scrap the name... Rudy's Mediterranean Heaven would be better. Not a grill or diner by any means. Cloth napkins, tablecloths etc.... food was fantastic. Wait staff was friendly... More

We picked our son and his wife up prior to a Saturday morning shopping trip and knew we were going to get breakfast out. I googled local places and this one came up. What a find! We arrived about 10am. The place was almost empty, one other table and a couple with their young child eating at the bar. Freezing... More

Wonderful first time experience at this establishment. Waitress was kind, helpful and her suggestions were on point. The lentil soup was velvety and quite tasty with a hint of heat. Both the combo kebab and the lamb yogurt shish entrées were fantastic and would order again. The desserts, almond pudding & baclava, were a perfect ending to an awesome meal.... More

My colleagues and I recently visited Rudy's for a work lunch, largely because it was close to where our meeting was but also because it showed high ratings on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. I am a big fan of baba ghanoush but this is the first place where I found it delicious despite it's chunky consistency (I usually prefer... More

I found this place on Google maps. The reviews were good and quite accurate. I had grape leaves, I believe hand made, lamb chops rare, and a special Turkish desert that I can say ranks close to the top of my list for deserts. It was incredible as was the service from beginning to end. Only thing I was disappointed... More

Fairly heavy without subtle spices & depth, but satisfying. The (lamb) izgara kofte had good flavor and we really liked the stuffed grape leaves.
