The new Uptown edition of Rudy’s—a neighbor to the iconic Fox Theater—rocks on. Same consistently good, comforting food, and the same friendly vibe as the E’ville original. Ditto on the hipness and tattooed waiter factors, too. Breakfast offerings (served all day) keep with the Rudy’s credo: “honest, good, nutritional food at affordable prices,” from the scrambles, omelets and huevos rancheros to smiley face pancakes, challah French toast and vegetarian creations. Lunch stars salads, burgers, BLTs and the like, while nightly specials—Mr. Roadie’s Fish and Chips or P’sghetti and Meatballs, good comfort food when you don’t feel like cooking—wend their way onto the menu. There is one noticeable difference about this Rudy’s: It’s got a full bar, so go ahead, order that bloody Mary this weekend. And it’s totally fine to be a kid again, so get a yummy strawberry milkshake or chocolate malt. This is the kind of place where you can find your tribe as soon as you walk in the door. Serves breakfast, lunch, dinner daily and is open early and late 7–1 a.m. daily).
