You can't beat the quality of the burgers at Ruby's. Also love that they will cook the meat medium rare on request. Fries are super and shakes thick, creamy and generous. Can't go wrong here.

This was the first place we had eaten at when we arrived in America and went there with the family we were visiting. The restaurant was a modern take on the 1950's diners. It was bright, colorful and clean. The food choices were sufficient to...More

Went in on a Tursday with a group of six, seated within 10 minutes and had one of the best balanced and tasty salads ever. The Kids loved their menues and we where even offered free balloons for the kids. Even though it was packed...More

We stopped here for a burger prior to boarding and were pleasantly surprised. My wife had the Portobello mushroom burger with grilled onions and provolone, and I just had the regular cheeseburger. Both burgers were quite good, and they come with the skinny fries, nice...More
