Laguna beach must...

I've been visiting Ruby's for years! It's a Laguna beach classic! Great burgers, delicious milkshakes and the BEST chilli fries EVER! So simple yet so good right by the ocean! Thanks Ruby's!!

This was not my first time eating at Ruby's but it was just OK. I remember it better than it was actually. It is a very cute diner and my kids loved it. The shake was plentiful and delicious but I was a bit disappointed with our burgers (Ranch Burgers).

My wife and I took a day trip to Laguna Beach while attending a conference in Irvine. We decided to give Ruby's a try. The nostalgic diner look and vintage vehicles parked outside was a plus. We ordered the more expensive hamburger and turkey sandwiches and were not impressed. The hamburger was overcooked and it did not taste like the... More

What's not to like? Great atmosphere and relaxed setting when you have little ones to feed. Our grandson loves the strawberry banana milk shakes, made the old fashion way, real thick and with whip cream and cherries on top. The cheese burgers are good as are the fries. For the first time my husband and I tried the chili (one... More

My niece had been here before with my mom and sister and insisted we all go together on our last Cali trip . It's such a cute place and the food was great the best little 50s style diner I've ever been to.

We went here and it is normal breakfast food, it is an old fashioned dinner experience. They have kept it up very well. The kids really enjoyed the cars out front and the fold up cars that they get to build while they wait for their food. The plates are huge portions and good breakfast.
