Have been here before. The food is always good, but the service is hit and miss. During this particular weeknight dinner with a friend from work, it was a "miss". The food was very good, but we had trouble with the pre-purchased discount AND with the service. The discount (from Groupon) purported to be for any two entrees and one... More

Rudy's is a quiet out of the way restaurant in Columbia which has a nice quiet environment. The food is not to my liking, being very spicy and poorly described. If you are familiar with Greek food names, you'll be OK, but if you are not, you are left guessing. Service was slow and inattentive. I had to get up... More

went here with turkish friends who came here frequently. Not elegant,but open and clean. There were 9 of us, most familiar with both Turkish and Med cuisine. We had a selection of appetizers which were a great start to the meal. I had the kofta which was nicely spiced (not hot spice but flavorful spiced) and several of the others... More

This is the 3rd time we have eaten at Rudy's and it continues to be a great source of authentic Turkish and mediteranean food with great service and presentation. It is just a shame it is located in an industrial park off the beaten path and apparently only enjoys a full house on the weekends. The quality of the food... More

We stopped in here after running the Army 10 Miler race on Sunday. This was a late lunch. We were immediately welcomed and seated right away. Our server was great and very attentive to us. We shared the Appetizer platter - (3) Sigara boregi, (3) dolma, (3) muever, hummus, acili ezme and patlican salad. This was all delish. We also... More

This is the place where we have returned over and over again and continue to get excellent food. Their friendly server told me that they make their falafel fresh daily and add all sorts of fresh herbs and spices. My husband doesn't even like falafel but loves the ones at Rudy's. They are by far the best falafel I have... More

We arrived late to town on Thursday night. After looking at several dining choices, we decided to give Rudy's a try. Given that it was late, we did not want a heavy meal. I had the appetizer falafel and hummus. It was excellent although the falafel were small. My friend had a roasted eggplant salad with pita, which she enjoyed... More

The prices are very high, bland food, tiny servings, and lots of plain lettuce to fill empty spaces on plates. Not impressed at all. Got the hummus, falafel, doner kabob, chicken kabob, and mint tea. Rice is plain white, tiny serving in a cup like at a japanese restuarant. The only thing we liked a little was the falafel but... More

Expect a warm welcome from Rudy and his wife Dilek,This is the best place in the area for authentic Turkish food. The Doner Kebab is hand made by the chef in the kitchen - I know as I have seen him putting the layers of meat onto the large skewer! Pide, a type of Turkish pizza, is worth trying accompanied...
