Read the reviews and was excited about eating here only to be disappointed. We booked ahead and because of traffic we were about 5 minutes late. Even though the table was sitting there empty, the hostess wouldn't seat us. Instead got a lecture about being late! Really? for being 5 minutes late? Tried to apologize but she just blew us...

This may have been the best mexican meal I have ever had in KC. We started with the Ceviche, it was the most perfect appetizer I have ever had. For the main course I had the Trio Sabroso, which consists of one of Rudy's famous beef taco's topped, a bean tostada and cheese and onion enchilada. What makes this simple... More

Rudy's is always my favorite place to go when visiting Kansas City. I love the atmosphere and the food is amazing. The chips and salsa and margaritas are soo good! Luckily they sell the salsa there so I always buy at least 6 bottles to take back home with me.

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.
