Finally, went back to Rudy's for pizza night. The PEI mussels were the best! Large and meaty and delicious sauce. I would say Rudy's was excellent but the pizza curst was tough.

Been going to Rudys for 40 years. Pizza is the best I've had outside of NYC. Love the sausage pie. Rudys special salad with grilled chicken is delicious as well.

Best pizza ever. Still the same for many years. Matt is the best employee. Always greats with a smile & knows your name. Even knows what you want and how you like it. Clifford

And not just out table, but table next to us sent food back. Owner came o er to our table, put a form to meatball and grabbed them off the table saying it was a mistake. I rest my case. Even toss salad was bad.
