Everyone I talked to recommended Ruben's. It's the restaurant to visit while in Ixtapa, evidently. It was okay but did not live up to the hype. The hype also creates long lines so if you are not in the mood to wait for an okay meal, move on.

I picked up some burgers and fries when I was there this past November for a change of pace in food. Nothing to brag about. I don't eat a lot of burgers. It tasted like a typical burger from a chain which is what it is. It was little pricey for what was served. We have a small drive in... More

My 14 year old son had a bacon cheeseburger and said it was really good. He was tickled by the old school glass bottle that Pepsi come in.

Great burgers - probably the best in Ixtapa - cooked on outdoor grills. I like that all the burgers are offered in three sizes from 120g to 260g. Only complaint is that the place is Pepsi loyal - no Coke.

Can you imagine having hamburgers for dinner on Christmas Eve in the middle of a rain storm! We had a great time and for once this restaurant wasn't lined up out the door. Of course we sat inside but usually you can sit outside at picnic tables while they barbeque your hamburger. They also serve barbequed bananas.... great food, great... More

We found the Ruben's burgers were lacking a little something - don't know how to explain it. This restaurant is HUGE by Ixtapa standards and you can eat inside or at the large picnic style tables on the lawn. The lights are bright so even in the evening you feel like it's lunch time! We would give them another shot... More

good was great, but service was horrible. Took forever to get food and french fries came out 20 minutes before our hamburgers. Menu is only in Spanish. Would go back again and hope for improved service.

the hamburger is very tasty, service is regular (as many places in town) but it is very good option to have dinner and lunch...price was good. They serve hot garlics and onions aside, don't miss it, it is rare to find this toping in any restaurant. Try the garlic
