Restaurant: Rudy’s Mediterranean Grille
Location visited: 7185 Columbia Gateway Dr., Columbia MD 21046
I had such high hopes for this place (pretty good rating on Open Table) but was so thoroughly disappointed… that I don’t even really want to write about it… but I am anyways, so that I can spare you from going and being disappointed yourself.
Open Table rates it as 4.5/5 stars with 90 reviews. Not sure if I want to put any weight to it because like I said, I wasn’t a fan. Or maybe it was just my personal experience… so it is what it is.
Anyways, pictured above is the combo platter… so 4 chicken, beef and lamb kebabs. I’ve had my share of kebabs from different restaurants (and I grew up in the Middle East!) so I consider myself a pretty good judge of kebabs. Theirs was just… NO. It was dry… and just didn’t live up to my flavorful dreams. The best part of this whole meal was the salad… because how can you go wrong with the salad? Oh right, you can just have a no flavor dressing 😦
Overall, just pretty disappointed. I got a 10% off coupon for checking into Yelp… showed the waiter then asked for the check. Received the check, and the 10% wasn’t taken off. Waited awhile for the waiter to come back… reminded him of the 10% off… and then it was taken off. Eye roll. Suffice it to say, I probably won’t be going back to this place. It’s a shame since it’s almost just down the road from me…
…but on to the next!
