Just decided to try this place last week for the first time in the 4 years I have worked in Southend and it wasn't because I don't like Italian food or pizza, it was because I never knew it existed. I am guessing this place stays alive on a cult following after people stumble across it while looking for lunch during the week, like I had done. This place is only open monday-friday, and it's location answers why. Its in the old Atherton Factory lofts area where a bunch of commercial offices are and Woods on South used to be. Tough place to draw people if you cant be seen from the road.
First off, the food is great. I got a chophouse steak salad which was huge, but the meat is shredded, which some people may not enjoy. You could have fed 3 people with all of the lettuce and veggies included in the salad. Then, today, I decided to try something else, a 9'' Italian Grinder. It was great as well. Enjoyed this more than the salad and it was only 7 bucks. Huge sandwich, lots of meat and toppings and good quality. They say they make their own grinder bread daily, you can definitely taste it. They have an all you can eat pizza bar with drink for around 8 bucks from 1130-130 daily. I havent had the pizza, but by the quality of the other food I'm sure to give it a shot.
The staff is friendly and you can tell they care, clean inside and quality of food are all above what you'd expect.

I have eaten at Rudino's three times. Each time the pizza was a little disappointing. The sauce is too sweet for my tastes. I do enjoy thier grinder's as they have lots of cheese and the sauce seems to complient the grinders. I am still looking for great pizza in NC

I moved out of state a year ago, and whenever I come back into town, I always go to Rudino's for a grinder. Oven toasted, melted cheese, fresh veggies and bread and the italian seasoning... makes my mouth water! :) Go there and grab one today! Pizza is awesome too.

Just had lunch at Rudino's today and i have to say that they have the BEST PIZZA I've ever had. They have a All U-Can-Eat Pizza Buffet for only like
$6 bucks....Sweet Deal. My friend ordered a grinder which looked unbelievable....He ordered a whole and when they brought it to the table it was 18"" long needless to say he took the other half home. If you've never been to Rudino's Pizza your missing out!!!!
