I've eaten here several times. There's nothing fancy about the place, but the staff was very courteous and the food terrific. The food is fantastic. I had the fish fajita bowl--very generous serving (really enough to split with someone). The service was prompt and reasonably priced. Highly recommend. Stop by on your way to the Chumash Casino!

Since we had training at the close-by Marriott, we decided to come to Rudy's since it is one of my colleague's favorite Mexican place. And I can see why. First, they have a salsa bar with tons of different house made salsas. Such a nice variety to try. I had a burrito with pork al pastor. It was very tasty... More

My favorite quick (not fast food) Mexican, for take out or eat it. Great salsa bar to spice up your dishes too. Always fresh and good quality food. My favorite dish is the Santa Barbara salad...

We ate dinner on a Saturday evening at 6 pm. There were 4 adults. It was busy both for eating in and for the take-out service. Orders are placed at the counter and paid for then your food is brought to you. We ordered Tacos and enchiladas. There servings were ample. My plate of chicken enchiladas was luke-warm. My daughter,... More

For a fast-casual Mexican restaurant, the food and service was outstanding. The chicken enchiladas were made from scratch while waiting; super fresh and tasty. Friendly staff that kept checking on you; very good and unusual for this type restaurant. Great salsas too.

One of the best "Authentic" Mexican Restaurants I've visited. And, the prices are very reasonable, but it's the food that's really good. Easy access from Highway 101, and a good place to get a Gas fill-up is in the same Shopping Center. Highly recommend Rudy's.

If you have time to wait and don't expect good service, it's a good place to eat. If you're in a hurry or with people who are impatient, go somewhere else. Food doesn't come out in an organized fashion - like the whole table won't be served at the same time - and the staff isn't very friendly or helpful... More

Small place so prepare to take out or wait for a table and we were not there at peak time. Have to order at a counter so if you don't review menu early that's a timely process. Chips are served at table but small salsa bar you get yourself. Had quesedilla and quality was fine the guacamole is good but... More
