    Jim Keener, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Rating, Google, January 9, 2018
  • We went tonight for the first time and this place was so cute! Quiet atmosphere and great customer service! They were very accommodating to our large group with mostly kiddos! Can't wait to go again!!!

    Amanda Bishop, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Facebook, December 21, 2017
  • So good! Green Chile is to die for and their pancakes are so delish! My favorite place for breakfast!

    Cyndi De Luna, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Facebook, December 20, 2017
  • Great food, service, and vibe. A little hard to find the building from the street, but worth the trip. They were a little slow to bring the checks, but we weren't in a hurry. Bottom line: I am a satisfied customer.

    David Drago, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Google, December 16, 2017
  • Had a party of 17 for breakfast there today. The food and service were fantastic. I recomend the green chilli not to hot but has great flavor.

    Robin Hastings, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Google, December 2, 2017
  • I have visited this restaurant twice now. Every time I've been, I have really enjoyed my food. Their chips are made right there on the premise. They are thick, greasy and very crunchy. I like the way their salsa tastes and has the perfect amount of heat. Sit in the sunroom and you'll get beautiful views of the front range.

    Ashley R, Colorado Springs CO 4 Star Review, Yelp, December 1, 2017
  • First time there to eat for breakfast. They have great food.

    Traci Robbins Rothert, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Facebook, November 13, 2017
  • They make you feel like family I look forward to Sundays and a great breakfast where you feel like you are part of the family. This is one of my favorite places to eat.

    Jay W, Colorado Springs, CO 5 Star Review, TripAdvisor, November 10, 2017
  • Best green chile & hospitality this side o' the border! No trip to the Springs is complete w/out breakfast at Rudy's!

  • I have known them for almost 9 yrs AND I worked there. The food is AWESOME.

    Cathy D, Mountain Shadows, Colorado Springs CO Recommended, NextDoor, November 1, 2017
  • I can't explain how delicious the food is here. Their red chili sauce should be sold by the bottle - it is made fresh and there is slight variation each time but always has depth of flavor and isn't excessively hot. Their green chili deserves is tops, too (even better than King Chef's). Go on Sunday morning before noon and sample the free bread pudding, it immediately cures all Saturday night hangovers and prevents worries about the Monday to come.

    Debora H, Colorado Springs CO Recommended, NextDoor, November 1, 2017
  • Easily the best chips and salsa, strong margaritas, great patio, never crowded, and delicious entrees.

    Dominic V, Crystal Hills, Colorado Springs CO Recommended, NextDoor, November 1, 2017

  • May be the best chips and salsa I've ever had! Fresh homemade chips, I could live on these! Great patio with amazing view (open seasonally) & a breakfast so delish we'll be regulars.

  • I have had many of the menu items. All are very good and you get large portions. A nice view from the patio and windows. The driveway is steep so be careful parking.

  • Nice little find for breakfast. Rudy's is really a little hideaway and finding it was a treat. The choice between the traditional American breakfast and a Mexican twist on breakfast made this place a great spot for a group with diverse taste. Biscuits and gravy or a chorizo scramble, toast or tortillas, this place had it all. We can early and got seated and served in a timely manner.

  • Great Mexican food!! The salsa is wonderful and spicy too! The green and red sauce for their enchiladas is super tasty!! The view on the outside terrace is second to none! Great people and food at a great price! You should check it out!!

    Albert J Bowley Jr 5 Star Review, Facebook, September 3, 2017
  • Came in today craving some great Mexican food, and it was delicious. Everything tasted fresh and had that home cooked meal taste. The waiter was polite, and did a good job. The portions for the cost are very generous, and the menu is simple. I wanted coffee though it was 7pm, and the waiter brought me fresh coffee, exactly what I needed after a long day. We will be back.

    Nawal Yousef, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Google, September 1, 2017
  • We have been coming here for years for breakfast (way back to the days when Rudy's was on Nevada) and always walk away satisfied. The servers are great with filling your water and coffee. Our main staples are Rudy's project and the breakfast burritos. We always ask for extra green chili but we like our dishes spicy. We have ordered almost every item on the breakfast menu and have never been disappointed. If you have never visited Rudy's for breakfast, go you will return over and over.

    Tony P, Colorado Springs CO 4 Star Review, Yelp, August 18, 2017
  • I'm so happy to find a decent Mexican food restaurant in Colorado. Moving from south Texas has been a shock to my taste buds. Food was really good.

    Victoria Dingler, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Facebook, August 11, 2017
  • Very Pleased! The view from the open air patio is worth the trip alone. Our service was quick, efficient, and friendly. And to top it off: the food! The food is so good! The salsa, roasted jalapeños, chorizo chimi, and chicken fajitas were excellent. Wish we had one at home!

    Staceyk1, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, TripAdvisor, July 30, 2017
  • First time eating here for four of us and none were disappointed. Nice discount on the beers during happy hour. Warm chips were great with salsa and all our meals were priced right and served by a friendly waiter who was attentive but let us have our space. The owner was graciously thankful for our visit and we assured him we would return in the future.

    Tom Baker, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Google, July 15, 2017
  • This is the best little hide away ever. These people have been in business for years, and familiar faces still there, year after year! The portions of food are very generous and absolutely delicious. Love this place.

  • Hidden Gem on 8th St. My husband and I went here for dinner tonight. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman and found a nice table of our choice. We barely sat down before our waitress was at our table and took our drink order. She was very friendly and quite accommodating. We had the El Rey margaritas and they were AWESOME! We ordered the chicken fajitas as our entrée and we weren't disappointed.

  • Post Hike Breakfast. After hiking the Cheyenne Mountain trails, I stumbled upon Rudys. The food is fantastic the service was great. Best of all they have a deck where you can just sit and bask in the glory of the mountain range. A wonderful place and worthy of many return visits.

    Jdgriff82, Sarasota, Florida 5 Star Review, TripAdvisor, June 24, 2017
  • Very good Chios and salsa to start. Waitress was very good bringing us water and not rushing us to order. We both ordered the carnitas burrito. Mine had red sauce with rice and beans and my daughter got it with green sausage and no beans. Food was huge proportions and we could have shared. Too bad I am only in town for the weekend highly recommend this place.

  • Great location with beautiful views....outside dining. Food is excellent ....Mexican dishes ate the best....love the Mexican breakfast tacos, the rancho band eras and the Machca burrito....I have has the American dishes also...They offer margarita with breakfast or enjoy a mamosa....Staff are friendly and seem to stay busy serving customers....our waitress was full of smiles and brought our food quickly.....Give this small business a try.....beats any chain restaurant hands down.

    Amanda Tuimalealiifano, Colorado Springs CO 5 Star Review, Facebook, April 14, 2017
  • Perfect 5 star experience! Not only was our food absolutely delicious!!!!! (Which, by our New York standards has been difficult to find in the Springs), but the prices were insanely reasonable as well as excellent service! The waitstaff here are impeccable and willing to go the extra mile to make sure the customer is satisfied and you can tell it's not even a second thought, it's just how they run their establishment! Definitely will be back! Thank you, you're a fantastic establishment!
