Authentic Mexican If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food this is your place. Great food and drinks and the BEST queso dip we’ve had.

There was nothing wrong with the food but nothing exceptional either. I did like that they serve breakfast all day. That sure made my nephews happy. I thought it was a little pricy for lunch. Not the lunch specials I'm used to in Fort Worth.

Visiting from Florida and was looking for good Mexican in the area. I read some really good reviews about this place and decided to try. If you’ve had good Mexican, you’ll quickly realize that this isn’t cutting it. Friendly service but very disappointed in the...food quality. It was alright, definitely not that best I’ve ever had.More

Rudy's is an impossibility where I live in Tennessee. It's a Mexican restaurant that is open for breakfast and is out of this world good. The first thing to try is Huevos Rancheros and even though you may not have had it before, order it...with the green chili... trust me. it's got enough kick to make sure you are awake but it's not so hot that you will regret the order. Rudy's is a special place that I visit at least once each time I'm out in the Springs. It is easy to pass up, hence the name, "Hideaway," but once you pull in there for the first time, you will be back!More

I do not recommend this place at all. Upon seeing it rated #1 in the area I am still trying to think of how and why. It took at least 15 minutes to be acknowledged at the door and get seated, and another HOUR after...getting seating to recieve our food only to have not gotten the queso we requested previously; but this is first time we even saw our waitress again since the first encounter. Quick to get our pitcher though compared to everything else, in about 10 minutes. Food wasn't anything special, and definitely not worth the wait. As someone who eats Mexican at least once I week this is the worst experience I have ever had. Save your time and go elsewhere.More

Had a great breakfast here with my oldest son and family. Nice patio seating. Food was very good. A little slow getting out of the kitchen. Very reasonable prices.

My wife and I had lunch here today based on TripAdvisor ratings and reviews. We both ordered the smothered shredded beef burrito with green chili. The green chili was the perfect sauce for the burrito with the most tasty shredded beef I have ever tasted...in a burrito. Rudy's has been added to my TripAdvisor favorites!More

This is some of the best mexican food I’ve ever had! It’s definitely more traditional Tex-Mex type fair than anything and the building is a bit older. But everything tasted homemade/fresh! Definitely sit on the patio if you go it overlook a beautiful view of...the surroundings mountains!More

A Delicious Saturday morning breakfast with an amazing view from the patio. Menu was great. Lots of great choices. I ordered the Mexican Omelette smothered in green chili, my husband had the Denver Bronco Omelette, and my daughter had the Four Deuces Combo with pancakes,...eggs, sausage, and bacon. Server was very friendly and we appreciate them taking COVID precautions seriously. Took awhile to get drinks, food etc. but we weren’t in a hurry so no big deal. Think quite a few parties came all at once around 10am. We will definitely be back!!More

Would not have pegged this for Mexican food just driving by, luckily I use TripAdvisor to find restaurants. :-) Our family had breakfast/lunch here on a Saturday. It was wonderful! My husband wanted to come back again (and we were only there on a few...day trip). Portions were good. Service was friendly. We'll be back next time in CO.More

We visited Rudy's Little Hideaway for breakfast on a visit to the Colorado Springs area. The staff graciously allowed us to bring our well-behaved dog onto the patio, a huge plus for a hot summer morning. While a little slower with reduced staff due to...the Covid-19 issue, we felt that the speed of service was fine, and our server was friendly and helpful. The food was EXCELLENT. As Minnesota residents, we rarely have opportunities for exceptional Mexican takes on dishes, and we devoured our meals with gusto. There was a Chorizo Stack and a Machaca Burrito, both of which were shared and large enough for us to not need another meal until dinner! We will return!More

Huevos Rancheros was very good, green chili sauce excellent! Waited on a seat for 7 on the patio, should have made reservations but had no idea. Everyone seemed pleased with their orders as well. Would definitely consider returning when in the the Springs again.

We were suprised upon arrival due to difficulty in accessing hillside parking. Entry cleanliness was below normal standards. Floor dirty and need for some repaint. Service was episodic. Menu was provided after 5 min wait. Then came chips and minutes later sulsa. Still no napkins...or sulverware. Asked for large margarita light on ice but got little margarita and mostly ice. Service was slow and not friendly. Food was average. We will not be returning.More

We have been coming here every Saturday morning for breakfast for years. My boyfriend has been coming here for more than two decades. This place is so great. Wonderful waiters and waitresses, a really nice owner, beautiful artwork, interesting murals, a rough-hewn little place with...a true Mexican flavor. No pretensions. Very reasonably priced. The Mexican breakfast is so amazing, but if you want an American breakfast, that’ll be just as good as at any diner in this country. Outstanding!More
