I was on a mission to try a California burrito everywhere we stopped on our vacation, and this one was the best. We also tried their Mexican popsicles, which were really good.

Al pastor tacos are one of my favorites and this is the place to go for them. Their fish tacos (beer battered) are excellent too. Very inexpensive and filling food.

I love eating Mexican food. Whenever I am in San Diego area, this is is the first place I go to to get a carne asada burrito. The carne is seasoned amazing. Every bite of carne is mouthwatering good. It has the right amount of heat. You can eat it without salsa and it is incredible or you can put... More

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
