Bad experience, major health risks! Went because of the great reviews on here. Was appalled by the entire experience. The line was out the door, and when we made it into the restaurant it became evident that it was previously a Waffle House. (One of the biggest giveaways was that the main cook still wore a Waffle House paper hat.)... More

My husband and I revisited Rudy's after several years. We love the great hometown hospitality, the home cooked meals and the wonderful, friendly employees. This time we did not see Rudy busy at work but the two people cooking were awesome. This place is immaculate. As we sat in one of the booths overlooking the kitchen, we noticed everything was...

At first I thought it was a mistake due to the heavily used seats and tables but tried it anyway. Food was better than average, cost was well within reason but atmosphere was very nice and friendly. Plate lunch was great. I would go back.

Not very big but clean. The place was dated but maybe that is part of the diner mystic. The seats were a little beat up. The food was good and the service was friendly. It was okay.

We were on our way to Nashville and wanted to stop and eat in Clarksville. Looked to tripadvisor for recommendations. We wanted to try something different than the standard chains so chose Rudy's diner based on reviews. My husband had catfish sandwich which was 2 pale, frozen strips on a bun. My turkey club was good until I noticed a... More

American diner food with excellent taste and service. The regulars visit and others come back, so they're doing something right. Food is excellent and prices are better.

Real people with real food! 1st time visit, service was stellar, beat sweet tea I've had in a long time! Country fried steak, grilled catfish and mashed potatoes were just like mom would make!
