WE [ALL 6] HAD A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE! WE LOOKED A LONG TIME FOR AN AUTHENTIC MEDITERRANEAN RESTAURANT AND RUDY'S MET THAT CRITERIA EASILY. THE ATTENTION FROM WAITER, TO WAITRESS, TO OWNER WAS FANTASTIC! FRIENDLY, INFORMATIVE, FUN AND EFFICIENT--I WANTED TO ADOPT THEM INTO OUR FAMILY! NOT TO MENTION HOW DELICIOUS AND PERFECTLY PREPARED EVERYTHING WAS--FROM APPETIZERS, TO MAIN COURSES, TO DESERTS! WE WILL BE BACK!

Had the falafel appetizer. It came with hummus and pita and was very tasty. Also had the combo kabob platter. The meat was deliciously seasoned and tender. The rice was also good. Definitely coming back.

As always, food was great. The beef shish kabob is our favorite and the appetizer platter. The waiters and hostess were all very personable which is great! Love eating in that place. Feels like you’ve always been a regular.

Suggested to a friend, who had never been, that we come here for a late morning breakfast. We had the place to ourselves and a very attentive, polite, helpful server. My friend was curious about the cuisine, so we ordered the large sampler appetizer so she could taste the many delicious offerings. It did not disappoint- looked and tasted divine. Our breakfast omelette platters, of ample size and quantity, were also very good. I tried the house omelette and enjoyed the combination of ingredients. We had more than our fill to eat and took home some of the appetizers leftover to enjoy another time. The coffee was good and great service continued even though the lunch crowd began flowing in and filling up the place during our lengthy visit. I had been here several times before to have breakfast and one time for dinner- each experience a good one. I'm planning to bring another group of friends who've never been to try it for lunch next time. Definitely a wonderful hidden gem that keeps on shining.

Unfortunately, they weren't prepared for the onslaught of diners on Christmas Day. But they apologized profusely for that. My husband's lamb chops were meaty & done medium rare as requested. My lamb saute was excellent. Only complaint is I wish the little salad came before the entree...I don't like mixing the hot & cold. The custard dessert actually passed my daughter's finicky test.

We went to Rudy's on Christmas as we had just come from BWI Airport and needed a place that was reasonably close. The restaurant was busy. Service was a bit slow at times, but the food was worth the trip. Our party of six had the falafel, lamb shank, lamb adana, greek salad, beyti yogurt, and Coban Kavurma. We also had the baklava for dessert. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic middle eastern cuisine.

This is a fantastic neighborhood restaurant with superb Mediterranean and grilled food. We thought the hummus was as good as any we have eaten in the Middle East. The shrimp kabobs were tasty and cooked just right. Beef and lamb were delicious. The service was attentive and wonderful.
