There were 17 of us for a lunch time birthday celebration and we all enjoyed the food and the friendly service. Our large party was handled extremely well. We all said we would definitely go back again!

The lamb shank (incik kebob) is excellent and one of my favorites. Rice is nice, but needs sauce or gravy. Salad is fresh and tasty. Greek salad with chicken wasn't so good this time, as it had been in the past. Turkish tea is pleasant and soothing. Service is always very good.

Found this place by making a wrong turn and was a little hungry for lunch. I was warmly greeted. I had the Sucuklu Pride (a type of pizza) that was also served with a cup of Red Lentle Soup. Very good, well seasoned. I intend on eating at this place again, and ordering from the staff's recommendations.

We were anxious to try Rudys. Rudy is very nice by the way and the place has a friendly feel. The food was okay, but not great. With my dairy allergy was choices were limited. I got a minced lamb kabob which was nicely spiced but a little dry. I had veggies and salad with them and they were bland... More

My husband and I went to Rudy's this past Saturday afternoon for lunch. We dined here once before years ago when they first opened and the experience was underwhelming at best. The positive reviews on TA persuaded us to give them another chance. The space has been completely re-done since the last time we were there and is really lovely... More

We normally visit Rudy's for evening dinners when the restaurant ambiance is Turkey on the Bosphorus! But after a medical test one morning, which required fasting and anesthesia - breakfast fare was great! The owner used to run a diner, and although it may be Turkish cuisine at night, his breakfast, especially his home fries reminds us what great food... More

My husband and I went on a busy Saturday night. We like sitting at the bar (more to see) and were very comfortable there. We had a hummus appetizer which was good although slightly bland. I had the spinach pie which I really loved. The pastry wasn't flakey like philo dough but a little soft and to me, it was... More

My family and I went to Rudy's for Mother's Day. I've been there before and the food has always been very good. This time though, the wait was unbearable. We spent over two hours at the restaurant in order to finish our appetizers and main courses. The staff did come over to apologize for the wait because their grill was... More

I went to Rudy's several years ago and while the food was fine, the ambiance was not that great. Since that time, they have really upgraded the interior and has a very good vibe to it now. We have been to the Sunday breakfast several times and have very good meals. I have gotten the Rudy Omelette and added Feta... More
