We went to Rudy and Paco's for our anniversary. Wonderful food and service. Just a reminder - no shorts and reservations are recommended.

Reviews are pretty much spot on. "Upscale" for Galveston, which just means khakis and a golf shirt, but it's well worth it when you're maxed out on burgers and pizza. Our grouper and our snapper were just about perfectly prepared, one with a cilantro/lime topping, one with a crab/butter -- both excellent. Nice wine list. Perfect choice to celebrate a... More

Good food and generous servings. The service was great. My husband enjoyed the bar drinks but I was disappointed in the wine list.

Rudy and Paco's Restaurant is a fabulous place to eat in a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. It is a small local business with the absolute best service I have ever experienced. We have eaten there two years in a row while visiting Galveston. This year was just as fabulous as last. The food is outstanding. I like their fish dishes,... More

My word but this was good. Don't miss your chance to have Red Snapper Sympatico! Service was terrific and while there is a dress code, it is still island style.

We called ahead to make a reservation and was told that the dress code does not allow anybody with shorts. I came to Galveston without one pair of long pants and I don't intend to buy a pair to dine at a Mexican restaurant.

The service and presentation were very impressive, especially for Galveston, which often has very slow service in other restaurants. Steaks were very good, dessert was excellent, lovely decor, prices not bad for what you get.

If you really want good service and great food you have to stop in at Rudy and Paco's. South American style. Great flavors and they even have lunch specials during the week for less than 11.00. Can't beat it

I've been going to Rudy and Pacos for years and this last visit was unbelievable. It just keeps getting better and better. I had the soft shell crab topped with lump crab meat and it was to die for. Food was served at perfect temperature and very nice presentation. Paco goes far and beyond to make you dinning experience remember... More
