For a fast-casual Mexican restaurant, the food and service was outstanding. The chicken enchiladas were made from scratch while waiting; super fresh and tasty. Friendly staff that kept checking on you; very good and unusual for this type restaurant. Great salsas too.

One of the best "Authentic" Mexican Restaurants I've visited. And, the prices are very reasonable, but it's the food that's really good. Easy access from Highway 101, and a good place to get a Gas fill-up is in the same Shopping Center. Highly recommend Rudy's.

If you have time to wait and don't expect good service, it's a good place to eat. If you're in a hurry or with people who are impatient, go somewhere else. Food doesn't come out in an organized fashion - like the whole table won't be served at the same time - and the staff isn't very friendly or helpful most of the time. Avoid taco Tuesday as all of this is exacerbated by the increase in business. Obviously the food is pretty good, or I wouldn't go there at all!

Small place so prepare to take out or wait for a table and we were not there at peak time. Have to order at a counter so if you don't review menu early that's a timely process. Chips are served at table but small salsa bar you get yourself. Had quesedilla and quality was fine the guacamole is good but not spicey if you prefer that. Staff was pleasant enough and answered questions but too kaotic for my preference.

My husband and I arrived in Buellton around noon and wanted to spend the remainder of the day in the Santa Ynez Wine country but needed to eat lunch before that. We were pleased to find Rudy's which allowed us to order and pay at the counter so we were free to leave as soon as we finished eating. We sat outside on the covered walkway in front of the stores in this strip mall. The location is immediately off of the 5 freeway on Hwy 246 which leads to the wine country so it is very convenient. We each ordered the Santa Barbara salad which had warm freshly grilled chicken on it and we thought they were good and of ample size. We would recommend this spot for a good, quick meal in the area.
