Yummy, yummy, yummy!

By far THE best hot dogs in Toledo! Rudy's was our hometown go to for hot dogs & other diner type foods. They have a great breakfast as well...the biscuits & gravy are as good as any grandma can make. Try it out!

This fast food diner is a throwback to a different era. The name suggests that they feature hot dog variations as their core offerings but they have many other options as well. The food is refreshingly simple and tasty. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is casual and the prices are very reasonable. We were in Toledo on a shopping... More

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
