We were told by some vacationers on the beach that Rubens served the "Best hamburger ever". They apparently have never experienced a really good burger. Rubens burger was average at best. Disappointing.

Best bacon cheese burger ever! The cabbage, instead of lettuce is a nice touch. The french fries are fresh and hot. Clean place. Excellent prices.

Having eaten at the Ruben's in Ixtapa several times, we were thrilled when they opened one in the La Madera area of Zihuatanejo! (Years ago there was a Ruben's here.) Since we stay in Zihua, we couldn't be happier! Delicious burgers, even better fries, and ice cold drinks! The service is awesome too! Very clean place, friendly employees and open... More

I LOVE Mexican food, but needed to mix it up while in Zihua for 8 days. The wife and kids voted for burgers and I reluctantly went along. Much to my surprise Rubens was as any burger in the States and the fries even better. Service was great as well. Would gladly go back!

Ruben's now has 2 locations, Ixtapa and now in Zihua, 1 street behind playa madera near Rufo's and Patio Mexicana. Great burgers and fries at a reasonable price.

I have been visiting Ruben's for more than 10 years... always a great choice! You must ask for the baked potatoes! A must in Ixtapa!

Setting: Plenty of seating in and out side (about 32 tables). Stopped by here for escape from the rain. Bathroom (mens): clean but like the airport no toilet seats. Women's does though (per the wife). Food : on the menu they have a small variety... either burgers or chicken sandwiches. . Sadly our pallads are just not used to the... More

We'll eat here usually twice in our ixtapa stay of 9-12 days. The burgers are good but definitely a little different than your typical North American burger. These do not have lettuce on them but instead a shredded cabbage which is actually quite tasty and probably better than some humidity wilted lettuce. The other weird thing is that upon ordering,...
