If you like ceviche you must try Rudys!

My husband and I came here for lunch and both found our food fresh and tasty! He had the chicken taco salad and said it was especially well seasoned. I had the halibut ceviche and it was beyond amazing! The server said it was hand made in their kitchen by one of their cooks. The flavors were... read more

Expensive and the food was terrible. Ordered the Swiss Enchiladas and chicken was pre-processed. Chicken mole was bitter.

Read the whole review - food is awesome, service is iffy, management should be terminated! Rudy's is famous throughout the Santa Barbara area. The one in Buellton is no different. Tuesday is the best day of the week to go, because it is Taco Tuesday, and you will save yourself a lot of money if your primary order is tacos... More

You won't be disappointed if you eat here, but you won't walk away raving about the place either. Good place for a decent burrito or taco.

It doesn't "look" like a good Mexican restaurant but we were stuck at the laundromat so we thought we give it a try. Great choice! Excellent food, excellent salsa choices. Give them a try

We used to love going to Rudy's but the last few times we have gone they have given us the wrong items or forgot to include items all together. We didn't notice until we got home. The prices are pretty high and it takes them forever to make the food too. We gave up on them a few months ago.... More

This is more of a take out place than a restaurant, but like the Rudy's in Santa Barbara it has good food and the prices are reasonable.

We ate lunch here one day and were a bit put off when we walked in. The place felt like a take out restaurant but had tables. One of us had tacos poblano and the other had chicken flautas. We enjoyed our meals but when i went to the restroom i was grossed out. If their kitchen has the cleanliness... More

We had dinner tonight at Rudy's, from a review on Tripadvisor, and it was so good! Very cheerful staff and prompt! And they were preparing a huge catering order that we were told was a last minute thing for a local school. Tortillas were amazing and looked homemade. They made the best tacos! Beans and rice were terrific, too. My... More

I'm here from Fort Lauderdale, this was the best Mexican food I have had in years. The grilled chicken burrito was prepared perfectly and the beef hard taco blew my mind.
