Toledo tradition

Good diner breakfasts and lunches. Hot dogs with chili sauce are a Toledo tradition, but sometimes are soggy in recent years.

There is nothing exceptional here but if you're looking to stop some place and get a couple of good dogs by all means stop in. Not many places you'll get one any better than here.

Tired decor nothing sticks out about the dogs... greasy chili sauce.. Landmark status firmly in tact , but a foundation of sub standard fare

I have been eating Rudy's hot dogs since 1950 and have lived in 6 other states where you can get a hot dog, but every time we came back to visit Toledo, the first place we headed to was Rudy's. Comparing them to Tony Packo's is like comparing a roasted Chicken to a roasted Duck. They keep their places clean... More

My husband & I each got the #1 single dog with fries & a drink & also got a side of onion rings. The chili dogs were amazing! the dogs came with onions, mustard & chili (which as another reviewer said it is more meat than sauce). The meal comes with fat, thick fries, and a lot of them! The...

Another " Toledo" hot dog shop...not as fancy as Tony P' s, but equally as good. The dog sauce is more meat than sauce ( very tasty), the fries were fresh/hot. The lady helping us was awesome. Had a Boston cream pie for dessert, which was average. Fairly clean place. Stop in- reminds you of hot dog stands of the... More

It doesn't get any better than this. Rudy's is classic Toledo Hot Dogs. This isn't really a "Coney Island" dog or a "Chili Dog"...it's different. It's a Toledo-Style Hot Dog. Just like Chili Mac isn't just "a plate of noodles with chili on top". If you don't know, or don't understand, you need to visit Rudy's and educate yourself. There... More

Rudy's is a Toledo tradition. They have the best hot dogs around and their sides are great too. My favorite is the fried mushrooms. But the very best thing they have is their mouthwatering delicious malts. No ice cream shop anywhere can come near the wonderful delicious malts from Rudy's. Everything they have is great, it's totally worth the trip.

This place needs to have the health department to come in there and completely go through it with a fine tooth comb. Walls are dirty, Seats needs to be wiped down. table edges are sticky, Vents are black. Hair in food. Kitchen help needs to wear pants not boxer shorts.
