We went here for breakfast because we wanted to try a diner while doing our roadtrip. And we weren't disappointed. Even though we just ordered the normal stuff like waffles, bacon and scrambled eggs and beignets, it all tasted great. The place got a cool...More

I enjoy the retro look and the food was great. I was able to get turkey burger with a salad and not have to get french fries. It was at an off time so the service was great. I always find it better to go...More

Went in for 7 milkshakes only for kids, at 9ish. Suppose to be open until 10. The person working tonight, Friday October 13, said they were closed. Really? Lost business?

A decent spot for a quick bite. I had the hickory burger, which was decent. A bit greasy, but I was satisfied. French fries had no taste. Restaurant was filling up, but quiet. No background music, just the sounds of a cash register processing tabs.

We felt like we were in a Happy Days set. I had Huevas Rancheros and my daughter had biscuit with sausage. The service, food and price was excellent.

A great place to grab a burger and a milkshake in a 1950s styled diner, great for couples and families. Complete with 1950s/1960s American cars on the forecourt, we felt like Danny and Sandy in Grease! Can definitely recommend the Hershey's chocolate and the salted...More

On PCH in Laguna, Ruby's provides a very pleasant dining experience-from the classic cars out front to the 50's decor inside-it's a step back in time! The Cobb Burger was really good! Also had the blueberry cheesecake shake -outstanding!! Only negative was that the restaurant...More
