Last month, my friends and I went to Rodolfo’s Tex-Mex Diner to check out the place and try the food. It’s been almost a year since they put up that “Temporarily Closed” sign, and I always ask around and look out if they have already reopened. So they did, but they changed a lot of things about it.
Rodolfo’s was a cafe before but now it’s a Tex-Mex diner (and the first in Legazpi City at that!). They used to serve cold drinks like frappes, smoothies and coffee, too. I really have to admit I will badly miss their froyo since the menu is more of burgers, nachos and shakes now. It’s situated near St. Agnes’ Academy and in front of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) here in Legazpi City. I started taking photos the moment we came in.
I gushed about how good the interior looks and how colorful it has become (compared to its old interior). The maracas and the Mexican hats on the wall gave a Mexican feel to it. We actually had the place to ourselves because they just opened, plus the fact that the highway was closed because of road constructions.
Here’s a panorama of the place:
I only have two pictures out of the three our group ordered. Food price starts at P120 and most of the food in the menu are good for sharing. My friends and I agreed that though it may seem pricey, once they serve the food to you, you will then understand why you had to pay for such an amount. Take note: the food we ordered were all Instagram-worthy because of the presentation.

Aside from the ambiance and the food, one thing I always take note about cafes, restaurants and other food spots is how the staff interact with their customers. I must say, Rodolfo’s didn’t fail me. It was so nice to see a familiar face back to when I always went there a year ago for froyos and cakes. They entertained all our questions about the place and the food served. So I left the place with not only my tummy feeling satisfied, but feeling satisfied with the service as well.
I believe it’s a perfect place for the whole barkada since, as I already mentioned, most of the food are good for sharing. It’s also good for spontaneous dates and private one-on-one meetings. For those who love checking in on Foursquare, tweeting what they think about where they are, and posting photos of food they are about to eat on Instagram, fret not, for they have wifi. I would definitely come back and try out their burgers next. Check out their Facebook page here.Well, that’s about it amigos y amigas! Adios!
