Reviews of Rudy's Mexican Restaurant

Only Mexican restaurant (been to many) who does not serve tortillas with fajitas. Found this out when I got my order and asked where my tortillas were. They are a side order that you buy, same for tortilla chips. This is not a high end restaurant folks where something like that might happen. The food is pretty good, but their lack of attention to simple details and customer expectations gets low review from from me.

I've been to Rudy's in buellton and it's the absolute best!<br /> I love their taco salad and burritos. Staff is friendly and food is done quickly. Keep up the good work!

I love Rudy's burritos but you have to be careful that you get the right order. I've seen at least three people given the wrong TO GO order (including myself). I highly recommend getting food to go. The restaurant is small and not so clean.

Rudy's is amazing Mexican food! I always have weird requests when I order food, and they actually got it right without any questions and it tastes amazing. I highly recommend eating here, they're pretty quick for quality.

Delicious Wholesome Mexican Food. Just like eating at Grandma's house. Friendly Staff and great service. Reasonable and family orientated. Make sure to try the Large Beef Taco.

The food is good, but the restaurant is so dirty!<br /> <br /> The tops of all tables were so dirty as well as the top of all window sills which were covered in layers of dirt.<br /> <br /> The floors are so greasy with dirt.<br /> <br /> I saw a cook remove the exhaust van filter while a pot of chicken was cooking under it, also he placed some roasted peppers into a Vons plastic shopping bag in order to release the charred skin!

We love Rudy's Mexican food Restaurant. They make the most authentic delicious Mexican food in Santa Barbara. Thank you for serving Santa Barbara the best authentic Mexican food and great service.

The chicken taco salad is a take-out regular; leaving off the sour cream makes it light and healthy and it isn't too spicy for late night meals. If you're not too concerned with light and healthy, the chimichanga is equally addictive!

So good with out having to dress up. Just good grub. Can get busy so take out is a good idea.
