Coming from Southern California, I did not expect to find such an authentic Mexican food restaurant in Kansas City (home of great BBQ). But there I was inside a very traditional Mexican restaurant, that had two musicians playing a guitar and accordion, singing some old school, traditional music and doing a awesome job of it. The food was great and... More

Our lunch group chose Rudy's on Westport Road for the Friday lunch get together. First, there was a decent amount of parking around the place, which can be at a premium in some other Westport locations. The service was very prompt and friendly. Our party kept increasing in size and they not only uncomplainingly re-arranged our tables a couple of... More

If you like great Mexican food, good service, and an authentic experience, make your way to Rudy's. Our waitress was Constance T and she couldn't have been better. Very attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding.

This place was great! We were greeted and seated as soon as we walked in the door. Ordered a beer and Margarita, delivered super fast, along with chips and salsa (mild and hot). Placed our order and had hot, fresh, authentic Mexican food on out table in roughly 10 minutes. My hubby had the el torito (which were like mini... More

Have always enjoyed the meals here. Great food at a reasonable price. Wish they included chips and salsa with an entrée purchase but will never turn down an opportunity to eat here.

Whenever I am in Kansas City, I always try to make it out to Rudy's. It is a bit out of the way, but the food quality and service is consistently good. The food is as close to authenticate that you will find in KC. It is family friendly and has plenty of tables so there is not a long... More

The best bean burritos, cheese and onion enchiladas in town. My favorites are their Margarita and chips with hot sauce. Meal pricing is better than take out restaurants. Setting is very informal and cozy and service is very personal. My favorite mexican restaurant for the last 15 years.

Went there for lunch on a weekday. If you cannot find parking on Westport Rd in front of the restaurant, there is plenty of parking behind the building w/ also a convenient entrance in the back. Staff are very attentive. Service fast. Nice variety of lunch specials. Best one we got was the cheese and onion enchilada + beef enchilada... More

I went there with my girlfriends for my birthday on Saturday night after I read all the wonderful reviews about Rudy's. The salsa was really good and we mixed it with the habanero. The guacamole wasn't the chunky kind...it was just okay. the chips were thin and so they break everytime you try to get a dip from the guacamole.... More

We've always liked Rudy's. I called in a take out order Saturday afternoon to pick up in 15 mins. Got there on time. Got home and it was cold, dry no sauce... It was awful. We threw it out and wasted $30. The El Mexicano was dry and cold no juices or sauce. The cheese and onion enchilada had large... More
