Rudy’s Mexican Food in Monrovia – Growing to Serve You Better

 

By Bill Coburn

 

 

This week, we ate at Rudy’s Mexican Food in Monrovia.  Owner Rudy Castrellon used to have a restaurant in Covina by the same name, but he has now been in old town Monrovia for twelve years.  It is a family restaurant, not just in the sense of a place for families to enjoy, but also because several members of Rudy’s family work at the restaurant, as well.  On Friday nights, Rudy sets up shop outside for the Monrovia Family Festival in addition to offering full table service in the restaurant.  Rudy’s also does catering, and serves food to go.

 

Rudy’s has recently expanded south, adding a multi-purpose room that features a beautiful dark wood and stainless steel bar plus seating for eighty.  I say multi-purpose because the room will be used to handle overflow diners on some evenings and at lunch, as a banquet room whenever appropriate, as an omelet bar station for a Sunday brunch (starting soon) and as a lounge for Happy Hour 3 to 7pm (when not being used for other purposes).  The bar will feature standard spirits, as well as top-shelf scotches, whiskeys, and appropriately, tequila.  In fact, some of the top shelf tequilas are in the $250/bottle range, don’t figure they’ll be among the Happy Hour specials.

 

We’ve eaten several times at Rudy’s, and have always been quite happy with our meals.  I remember eating a seafood salad off the lunch menu that I couldn’t figure out how they manage to get so much seafood in at such a low price.  In fact, it seems like I usually get seafood when I go to Rudy’s, perhaps because they seem to have lower prices for seafood than most of the Mexican restaurants we visit.  This time, I ordered the Pescado a la Plancha (Fish of the Grill) which was a really good sized piece of red snapper grilled with onions and sautéed mushrooms, served with rice and a side of salad.  The salad was good sized, and featured tomatoes, celery, cucumber and red bell pepper.  The rice was light and fluffy, with vegetables mixed in, peas, carrots, green beans and onions.  I recommend asking for their hot sauce to add to it, they have one of the best, hottest hot sauces I’ve enjoyed anywhere.  The snapper was delicious, and as I said, a really good-sized portion.  It comes with a tasty seasoned sour cream sauce that includes onions, garlic and cilantro mixed in.  It also comes with a choice of flour or corn tortillas.

 

Keelan ordered a bean and cheese chimichanga, served with rice and beans.  He ate most of it, but it was a pretty good sized entrée, and he didn’t get it all done.  He said it had more cheese than he likes, but as I always say, better to have too much than too little, you can always take it off.

 

Katie decided to try the Beef Fajitas, as she hadn’t had Fajitas in some time.  She was very happy with it, noting that there was a lot of tender beef mixed in with the vegetables.  It was seasoned just right, not too spicy, and served with rice, beans, a side of guacamole and her choice of flour or corn tortillas.

 

Rudy’s menu features more than a dozen different burritos, and more than a dozen combination plates, including a design your own combination where you choose the items in your combo.  Pozole and menudo are on the menu every day, there are several kinds of salads, and quite a selection of seafood plates, as well.  

 

I’m looking forward to the new Sunday brunch, which will have a surprise feature that I haven’t heard of anywhere else.  Rudy’s concerned about complying with the City’s rules and regulations, so I can’t tell you what it is, but I can say it involves an “eye-opener” for those who might enjoy one with their brunch.  Stop by and see what the surprise is, brunch will be starting in the next few weeks.

 

You can find Rudy’s menu online at www.sangabrielvalleymenus.com/rudys, or at www.rudysmexicanfood.com.  Stop on by and say hi to Rudy, and be sure to let him know that you read about him in Dot Com Dining.
