This place was one we found by luck and boy were we surprised. The food was excellent and just enough. My wife had the Roast Beef and Mash Spuds with pasta salad. I had Chicken and Dumplins with white beans and pasta salad.

Visiting the area and it was the only decently priced price for fried chicken still open after 8pm. Lillian, our waitress, was awesome and the friend green tomatoes are to die for too!

We wanted to experience breakfast at a local's hangout, and found Rudy's. Do not be put off by the look of the place, it's not a big corporate building that looks like all the others. It's a diner, the kind where the food is cooked right behind the counter! And the food is wonderful. We had breakfast, and I chose... More

My wife and I dropped into Rudy's Diner over the weekend. We were drawn in by the retro sign and the look of the place. It is a small place, so we had to wait for a table. The staff was friendly and helpful. My wife ordered the brown bag special which included a burger, pie, fries and a drink.... More

This place is a very small hole in the wall diner that the locals rave about. We were skeptical but since my son and daughter in law just moved here and had heard about it we gave it a try. Rudy's diner surpassed our expectations! The prices are reasonable and the food was good. The biscuits and gravy are really... 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.
