Rudy, a burger joint located in the Little Italy neighbourhood has been dubbed the Shake Shake/In-N-Out Burger of the north.
I was invited by owners Luke and Chris to try out their burgers. The menu is very simplistic and it’s reflected in the burgers they serve — in a very good way. Why have over 10 options for burgers?
I tried the The Rudy, a cheeseburger (but I omitted the cheese) with cheeseburger, lettuce, tomato and Rudy sauce. The Rudy sauce is a secret recipe.
Jeff tried the Rude Dude, same as The Rudy, but a double cheeseburger. We also got fries.
The burgers are all beef patty, smashed down on the flat-top grill with some salt and pepper. The burger may look small, but it’s pretty filling considering how simple it’s dressed.
A comparison of Shake Shake or In-N-Out, to each their own but what Rudy has in common is simple, honest-to-goodness burgers.
