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

We stopped in right at lunch time and although they were busy our waiter was very efficient and helpful. The fish and shrimp tacos were a real good choice as well as the chicken taco salad. The chips served before lunch were especially good , thin and crispy, with yummy salsa. Will return when we are back in KC again.

Quaint little family-owned restaurant. It doesn't hold more than about 40 people, but the service is good and the food is great. Thin chips (but you have to pay for them, they aren't free when you sit down) and mild plus hot sauce. Big variety of food and side-dishes to pick from, including cooked cactus and fideo. Not many Mexican... More

Located off of Westport road a little west of Westport entertainment district. Lest start with LARGE servings of everything! I had the portobello fajitas and they were great. (Even better if you have them add some steak). The burritos that got delivered to he table next to me was HUGE. You will not go wrong eating here. Note on dress... More

First, Great customer service! Food was fresh & tasty. The tacos with the fried shells were unique & great. The only issue was there white queso dip was watery. My favorite types of Mexican restaurants have that thick white queso that they put on the beans & other entrees. I even took some leftover queso home & it was liquidy... More

The food is great I love their chips and white cheese dip. Their salsa has great flavor. Quality food and quick service so it makes it great for a fast lunch or if you want to sit and visit and eat chips its fun. I have not had anything there I did not like. I try different things on the... More

The food was tasty, service was great, and the prices were right. Parking was easy to find on a busy Friday. The live mariachi (kind of) music was very good - but a bit too loud.
