The food is so good at this place. Good price (definately compared to the rest of the Island). Food is awesome. Portions are quite big. Vegetarian options as well. Service is good. Overall very good!

Went to Ruben's restaurant a couple of times for lunch and really enjoyed the food. The owner is obviously Ruben and welcomes you with open arms. Very nice man, hard worker.

Some of the best food on the island & great staff. Ruben & all the staff at Ruben's & Chilitos by Ruben are great. Never had a bad meal there. My favorites are Taco Tuesday special & Clam Chowder.
