i love ruby's! – i love this little joint. i always have the same waitress name katey, she is the sweetest and cutest little button ever. I always go in for a oreo shake and chicken tenders. they are my favorite :)
1940s-style diner chain serves comfort food classics to patrons with a craving for nostalgia. – In Short
In 1982, businessman Doug Cavanaugh opened the first Ruby's in Southern California's Newport Beach, naming it after his mother. Today, this nationwide chain--adorned with red vinyl booths, Formica tables, soda fountains and retro posters--features the same timeless food and hospitality that keep diners coming back. Favorites are the classic burgers topped with secret RubySauce, fries and sweet shakes. Other staples include pancakes, omelettes, sandwiches, chili, salads and a variety of fountain treats.
Exceptionally poor – Wait staff could care less. Food awful. Had the decor but no atmosphere whatsoever and the jukeboxes at the tables don't even work. Truly poor in every respect.
If you want to go back to the 50's this is the place – This is a good place to take the family. It is very family friendly. The service is fast and friendly.
The food is average but better than what you would get from a fast-food place. The milk shakes are the best. Its pricy but the ambiance makes up for it.
Not a good place for a date.. its quite noisy.
a classic diner with classicly good food – i grew up on rubys--it was my staple after ice skating in PV and biking in RB. today, i still like grabbing a cheese burger with avocado and the oreo shake. the service is eh but the shakes and burgers are worth it. this location has a nice big parking lot (park at the bike shop's lot for free if you want, so long no one sees you). like the other reviews mentioned, they can get pretty busy so dont except super great service.
The best burgers in the sbay! – Every burger I've tried has been great- esp. the "beach burger". The fries are delicious as well as the shakes. Don't bother w/the other main course menu items, they're not as good (they're either bland or too salty). If you go w/a large group, be prepared to wait for seating and for your order also. I've been there many times and their service is about average (sometimes slow, depending on how crowded it is, and once my order was messed up). But it's the best burger so far!
