I've eaten here now maybe a dozen times over the past 5-6 years - literally once or more every time I come down to San Diego. Cal-mex fare that can't be beat: the carne asada burritos, the tacos al pastor, and the surf&turf tacos vampiro-style are all soooo tasty. Rudy's has moved on from the salsa squeeze bottles to a...

This is a great place to eat Mexican food. I particularly loved the chili rellenos. Try their fish tacos too.

Rudy's has a great tasting burrito as well as chicken soup. I highly recommend both. The shop is simple and very authentic. The staff is friendly too.

From this little grocery store, Rudy has created quite a sensation with his freshly prepared burritos and other Mexican dishes. Most people take out although there's a small patio in front. Can call in or text in the order and it's ready in 10-15 minutes. A great last minute choice for a big lunch or dinner.

I've come to Rudy's several times, and find that it's consistently a good meal. Usually do take-out, have never eaten inside. I usually order a cheese and a chicken enchilada; the sauce is superb. The chips are fresh and crunchy, the guacamole delicious. The kids get rolled chicken tacos and a cheese enchilada. There's a park just south down the... More

We ordered the breakfast burrito and a carne asada burrito. The carne asada burrito was large, filling and delicious. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Overall a good experience for quick eats!

Lunch or dinner. Take out or eat inside or outside. Good draft beer selection. I like the carne asada, my partner likes the shrimp. Solona Beach doesn't have blackened shrimp. Call or text ahead, but they are fast regardless.

Went for lunch and ordered carne asada burrito $6, fish and beef tacos (under $3). Steak a little dry, but lots of it with guacamole. Fish taco was one piece of fish instead of small pieces. You can purchase beer. Sat outside under umbrellas. You can select sauces at a sauce bar including guacamole sauce. Good value.

Rudy's has long been known for their Carne Asada Burrito. For years it was the best carne asada in San Diego County and possibly the entire state. It's not at that level anymore, but it's still really good. They don't mess around. The Carne Asada Burrito is filled with nothing but steak and guacamole. It's very good and why I... More
