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.

What more could you want in a Ruby's? Besides the cool classic cars out front this Ruby's serves their sundaes big. I noticed others go with the smaller cup. Great location for when we stay at Laguna.

So, the shakes are it! Your old fashioned soda fountain glass is filled to overflowing, and then they give you the metal mixer with the other half of the shake. More like two shakes than one, but who would complain?? Oh yeah, they have a...More

Always a nice spot to have dinner with the kids after a long day at the beach. They have a great burger menu and the milk shakes never disapoint. Friendly staff and just off of the PCH.

What a great surprise. Our first time in Laguna Beach for the day. We had parked along PCH and walked past Ruby's Diner on the way to the beach. We were so hungry walking back to the car we decided to forgo a fancy place...More
