Went here for lunch with my partner and his little boy because I was craving Mexican food. I ended up ordering the choose your combo plate and had 2 beef enchiladas with 1 crispy chicken tinga taco with beans and rice. The red sauce for the enchiladas was...too much. I guess maybe it was made from ancho chiles but it... More

Fortunately it was "Happy Hour All Day" Wednesday, so it made up for the average service. I have enjoyed Ruby Tequila's other locations, so had high expectations for this one. My assumption is that the waiter was new to the business, as he was not quite to the standard of Ruby Tequila's waitstaff that I was accustomed. Ultimately I received... More

Friendly staff is always ready to make you feel welcome & promptly set you up for a great Mexican meal. We have eaten here at least a half a dozen times & have enjoyed everything on the menu we've tried

My husband and I ate here twice in July and really enjoyed it! The beer is very cold and the Nachos are wonderful! The homemade salsa is Great! They have a really good Happy Hour with drinks and appetizers. We will definitely be back!

The food was low quality and very salty. Not bad, just not good. Margaritas were average. On the up side, the wait staff was wonderful.

It was a relly pleasant place. Servers were great. The food was hot and really good. Drinks good too. Bathrooms clean and reasonable prices. We had a really good time.

Ruby Tequila is one of my favorite restaurant and their fajitas are the best I can get in Lubbock. I usually get beef fajita and sometimes I get beef and shrimp combo. Just love the way they cook, and present their food. You can have a drink if you like to..

Best service I've ever had hands down. The table side guacamole is a must have. The margaritas are divine.

I went to Ruby's for a conference and thought I'd walk from Overton Hotel. I asked for a chile relleno, don't know if it's because I ordered wrong but I got a stuffed banana pepper :/ I ate it and thought is was great! What I meant by chile relleno was the poblano pepper stuffed and dipped in batter then... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and understandably found it less crowded than I'm sure it would have been later. Nice atmosphere, friendly server (told us not only about the food but also Lubbock). Everything we ordered was very good. I also must mention the great Margaritas!

Thank Capn_C
