We purposely planned a KC stop on our way to Eureka Springs, Arkansas in order to have dinner at Rudy’s. The enchiladas were excellent and service was great. We like the decor and feel of eating in a small neighborhood a Mexican restaurant.

One of my favorite Mexican places in all of Kansas City! You can really never go wrong here- no matter what you order. Friday's are always the busiest, but the wait is worth it!
