We went to this place, based on the number 1 ranking and the picture of the restaurant. I've submitted the real picture of their front door to show what to expect. They do have a small deck on which there are a few tables and inside there are 3 small tables but this is, as their sign says, a take out place. We were longing for Mexican food and disappointed at the non-restaurant look of Rudys and that it was empty, so we went to the two other highly ranked spots, Tony's Jacal and Fidel's. Both had more than a 30 minute wait so obviously locals have voted with their presence that for those two restaurants. This all being said, we decided to call in an order to Rudy's and take it out. It was ready within 10 minutes. As suggested in the #1 ranking and the other discussions, the food was/is fabulous and inexpensive. My wife's chili rellenos dish was her best ever and my Carne Asada burrito was packed with delicious meat so, as a take out, Rudy's really is excellent! If you don't mind the look and small space dining there is probably ok also, it is certainly retro..
