Good Mexican-ish American food. Don't expect anything authentic, the food is more TexMex plus bar fare (Jalapeno Poppers, Potato Skins, Buffalo Wings). The vibe was okay, a step up from some places, this isn’t a date night place, more of a dinner with friends places. People here get drunk and loud.

We went there for dinner and had a drink while waiting for a table. the drink was worth it, but i would not return for the food. our waiter was very uninterested in us and probably had a long day. a smile was probably not made for her. once we got the menu and ordered the food, it was hard to get her attention again to order something to drink.
the food was standard i would say, it did not seem to ha much flavor to it. for a Mexican restaurant i would expect more taste to its food.

Rudy's gives exactly what you expect when you walk in, tasty TexMex with a view of Teal Sq. Consistent, reliable, friendly service at the tables and bar. Always full of locals and students from nearby Tufts U., so plan ahead on Friday and Saturday nights!

This place is always busy -- don't think I have ever been here without waiting for a table. Their margaritas are very good and you can't go wrong with the basket of chips and salsa, spring for the guacamole too, it's worth it.

There's a nice bar area and a fireplace in the corner, but I found the food to be poorly prepared. My fish tacos were served in burrito-size flour tortillas with over-fried fish, lettuce and mild salsa. The rice and beans were bland. Maybe I ordered the wrong items, but there are plently of good mex options in the area (nearby Cambridge) including Ole Mexican Grill and even Jose's.
