Weâ€™ve had a ton of Broadway giveaways lately (shameless reminder to enter our Leap of Faith giveaway here) but whereâ€™s a cheap place to grab a quick bite?
Sometimes, I donâ€™t have a time to eat before the show, and am just looking for a place where I can grab a few drinks and snacks and be out the door in 30 minutes or less.Â Plus, I donâ€™t want to hit a tourist trap and drop $5 on a slice of pizza.Â And thatâ€™s why I love Rudyâ€™s on 9th Ave near 44th Street. For $7, I can get a pitcher of their house brew, Rudyâ€™s Blonde, and enjoy free hot dogs. Unlike Crocodile Lounge where you can get a free pizza per drink, you can pretty much get as many hot dogs as you want here.Â For $7, Iâ€™ve gotten a pitcher before and two hot dogs (donâ€™t judge, I was hungry) and letâ€™s be honest, thatâ€™s cheaper than a dirty water dog on the street.
I will warn you, seating can be pretty tight and while there are booths, youâ€™ll probably end up standing. But if you are rushing to make an 8pm show, and want to grab a quick bite, Rudyâ€™s is definitely worth checking out.Â The Basics Name: Rudy’s Location:Â 627 9th Ave near 44th Street Who to bring: Friends Price: $ Great value Overall: 4 stars. Â In my rotation in Hellâ€™s Kitchen.
