Yummy, yummy, yummy!

By far THE best hot dogs in Toledo! Rudy's was our hometown go to for hot dogs & other diner type foods. They have a great breakfast as well...the biscuits & gravy are as good as any grandma can make. Try it out!

A Toledo classic. Excellent food for the whole family and very affordable. You must try this place today.

I was appalled at the way my husband & I were treated here. Everything from rude service to cold food. I'm not from Toledo but if I ever return to there Rudy's Hot Dogs will be the last place I will go. We wanted to try something new but quick, guess we will stick to McDonald's next time.

This wasn't my wife's first choice because of the location and ambiance but I could tell by the clientele that it would be good. I had a Yeros and a cup of Chili and it was a hardy blue collar delight. The Chili was great ... just a bit of spice. They actually sold their homemade Chili by the can... More

This fast food diner is a throwback to a different era. The name suggests that they feature hot dog variations as their core offerings but they have many other options as well. The food is refreshingly simple and tasty. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is casual and the prices are very reasonable. We were in Toledo on a shopping... More

Good diner breakfasts and lunches. Hot dogs with chili sauce are a Toledo tradition, but sometimes are soggy in recent years.

There is nothing exceptional here but if you're looking to stop some place and get a couple of good dogs by all means stop in. Not many places you'll get one any better than here.

Tired decor nothing sticks out about the dogs... greasy chili sauce.. Landmark status firmly in tact , but a foundation of sub standard fare

I have been eating Rudy's hot dogs since 1950 and have lived in 6 other states where you can get a hot dog, but every time we came back to visit Toledo, the first place we headed to was Rudy's. Comparing them to Tony Packo's is like comparing a roasted Chicken to a roasted Duck. They keep their places clean... More
