Great Hometown Hospitality

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... read more

Great breakfast! This is what they do very well! Always good and plentiful. They serve breakfast all day. The burger and patty melt is also good. The plate lunches (meat and 3 vegetables) is hit or miss. Never, ever get the pork tenderloin and gravy. It's not what you think it is, unless you're thinking of something completely disgustingly horrible.... More

There is nothing fancy about Rudy's diner, but you can get a great meal and great service at Rudy's. This small shop offers an extensive menu, with everything prepared fresh when you order it. Friendly staff and clean restaurant.

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

Beef tips with noodles = mostly fat - very little meat. Noodles had been sitting in water too long. Collard greens with too much liquid. Sweet potatoes too sweet & tasted like white sugar instead of brown. Yeast rolls not homemade and getting a bit dried out. Pumpkin pie was factory made and average. Wish I could say something nice...

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
