Menu is much more limited now that this is Vagabond rather than Rudy's. I will not be going here as often. Food was fine, just very limited options I felt.

I can't count the number of times I have eaten at this place. It originally was on 5th st and then moved to it's current location, and was probably the smartest decision they made. They are pretty busy, but their waiters/ess always treat you like...More

We ate at Rudy's on the evening of 07/05. The weather was great and they have a very nice outdoor patio. The waitress was great. Checked on us throughout our meal, but not bothersome. My wife had the veggie burrito and enjoyed it. I had...More

We were looking for a new downtown restaurant to try. Dropped by on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The gentleman who greeted us and sat us at a table was very pleasant. From there, disappointing. Margaritas are straight from a premix - even the specialty...More
