The service and presentation were very impressive, especially for Galveston, which often has very slow service in other restaurants. Steaks were very good, dessert was excellent, lovely decor, prices not bad for what you get.

If you really want good service and great food you have to stop in at Rudy and Paco's. South American style. Great flavors and they even have lunch specials during the week for less than 11.00. Can't beat it

I've been going to Rudy and Pacos for years and this last visit was unbelievable. It just keeps getting better and better. I had the soft shell crab topped with lump crab meat and it was to die for. Food was served at perfect temperature and very nice presentation. Paco goes far and beyond to make you dinning experience remember able and have you wanting to come back soon.

This is one of the best! The food is perfect (Surf & Turf this time), bread is the best and wine list is great. Don't forget creme brulee.

Because it's the best In town, food and service wise. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it! Tonight we have empanadas with beef, chicken and shrimp appetizers, very good! Wife had filet served with spinach and potatoes...cooked perfectly. I had ocean scallops served in a butter/cream sauce that were as sweet and tender as I've ever had! This was all just a set up for what was to come, the dessert. The breaded pudding was dense, rich and moist, served with pecan bourbon sauce that was delicious. The staff is fine tuned and attentive, presenting and clearing the table in a choreography that is well rehearsed and executed. Rudy & Paco is a must do on every trip to Galveston.
