    Rudy's Wins Readers’ Choice in Oakland Magazine's Best of Oakland and the East Bay.

    BEST BREAKFAST / LUNCH, BEST DINER, AND BEST LATE-NIGHT MUNCHIES

    Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe

    A few words about breakfast: green eggs and ham. Lunch: buffalo salad. Friday night dinner: Mr. Roadie’s fish and chips. And late night: chocolate shakes. Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe dabbles in a little bit of everything and does it all with flair, from omelets, scrambles, and towering hash-brown creations to salads, burgers, and chicken-fried steak, all plated up in big, bold, bright diner style. Good, honest food for the masses at affordable prices, the Rudy’s business model since 2002. Which means hipsters jacked up on espresso join tables with Italian-soda sipping young parents and toddlers anticipating funny-faced pancakes, while the well-heeled set chugs ale at the bar next to the college kids who nurse Olympia, killing time before a show at the Fox. Barbies, monkeys, and fork-wielding iconic Rudy are everywhere, fun stuff that can put smiles on most people’s faces. Other joints that try to be so many things to so many people can fail miserably, but not Rudy’s—where failing is not an option. 1805 Telegraph Ave., 510-251-9400 (also 4081 Hollis St., Emeryville, 510-594-1221), www.IAmRudy.com

I want to make sure that it is very important to see whether or not his is something that is going to improve in many way.

I may have to recommend that Guy Fieri from "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" takes a look!
