History[edit]

Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe opened in 2002 in Emeryville, CA with a second location in Uptown Oakland near the Fox Oakland Theatre since 2011.[4] The original location in Emeryville was originally Eugene's Ranch which was open for 36 years under Eugene Lee and was still serving its $1.95 2 egg breakfast in 1990.[5] Eugene's daughter Priscilla approached Jeffery Bischoff, a customer, to see if he would like to purchase the restaurant. 13 years later, Rudy's is an institution in Emeryville and a well known Bay Area diner.

Rudy's BLAT sandwich (a BLT with avocado) was featured on Lonely Planet's A field guide to 20 great American sandwiches.[6]
