We eat at Food Dudes pretty regularly and have never had a bad meal here. We got takeout and got pulled pork tacos. Tasted great but one of the tacos had at least 1/4 cup of fat/gristle in it. Pretty gross. Whoever was in the kitchen that day needs to be more careful. Definitely left a bad taste in our... More

Great food with lots to choose from. Mahi fish tacos, Mac n cheese, and shrimp quesadillas were to die for! Great local restaurant. However, it's really small so if you have a big group of people (more than 6), you may not be able to sit together. And there aren't very many tables (maybe 5 total and a bar area).... More

This is a tiny place, but we stopped in at just the right time on a Sunday evening and didn't have to wait for a table. We got cheeseburgers and the kids got bacon cheeseburgers. The burgers were big and yummy. The waffle fries were crispy and very yummy. The staff was very attentive with refilling drinks. This was our... More

My husband and I tried Food Dudes Kitchen based on the great reviews on trip advisor, and we were not let down. The crab cakes were incredible! The restaurant staff was super friendly and the food came out quickly and was delicious! It was a pleasant suprise, as it is a little place and easy to miss when passing by.... More

This restaurant is a gem! It looks like a hole in the wall - literally a store from in a small strip mall, but the food is delicious. We loved it so much, we went back the next night. But be careful - Thursday is taco night and the place is jammed!

Quite possibly.....no, the best fish tacos I've ever had in my life. Got a take out order, came with nice sides of rice/beans and pico. Huge pieces of fish, just a little slaw to compliment the overall taco. Staff was working hard, as another reviewer said you can tell they really like working here. Not the biggest place, can see...

We had high hopes based on the reviews, and the food was good. However, the health inspector was there and service seemed to completely stop. Kind of put a damper on the experience as well to have the inspector there. We will have to give it another try again next trip. PS they did pass their inspection lol.

Decided to try Food Dudes based on recommendations from some local residents. It's a small place in a strip mall off the main road. I would have never found it if I wasn't specifically looking for it. Seating is very limited, but luckily we were there during an off-peak time of day. I hear it can be hard to get... More
