There is something different about the flavor of this pizza and I freakin dig it. You can get just 1 piece if you just want to try it. But it is incredible. I adore this little underground joint.

I love a pizza with a good mixture of veggies and meat. I especially like onions, green peppers and mushrooms with the meat and they had one with these items. It was kind of bland to be honest. I believe the problem is mostly in the sauce - they need to kick it up a couple of notches.

Rudy's is a great place to grab a pizza to eat there or carry out. They have lunch specials. Cute little restaurant below street level.

I don't live in Lawrence, but when I visit family this is the place I crave. I love their pizza! It's a great spot right downtown and reasonably priced.

Most view this with mix appeal, love the food, usually I get carry out . Service in store not spectacular, but pizza is a Lawrence classic and worth it!

Wow, fabulous pizza! Don't mind the hipster atmosphere and semi-shabby restaurant. Fantastic, fresh, imaginative toppings on great dough. Wonderful!!!!! Loved it so much... can't wait to go back.

Not bad. Pizza was decent. Get it freshly made though. The wings were very spicy and the self serve water stand was terrible. There are better places than here for pizza. Nice atmosphere though.

Came here with my daughter for some pizza. It's in a basement, kind of help your self kind of setup. You can buy by the slice which is good for lunch, but nothing about it stood out for a reason to return. Felt like a hipster hangout...pizza was average at best.

Thank steve g
