Day one tried out the breakfast, waited ages to get served, they brought the wrong breakfast as the server didn't write it down and clearly forgot our order. We ate it anyway as couldn't wait any further. Bonus was they forgot to charge us for the drinks. Day two we tried again, although there were four waitresses no one took... More

Average diner. Burgers are large. Endless fries (but not asked if we wanted more). Beer is vastly over priced. Service was nothing better than average. Would I go again? If hungry and no other quick options yes. Otherwise I'd look for other options.

We have been biking to Ruby's each visit to LA. It is very easy to access by bike. We always get malts there and they are amazing! We usually split an order because the portions are huge. The service is great and the restaurant is very clean.

Not only burgers are served, Cobb salad was great. Friendly staff and prices are OK. Will definitely comeback next time in Redondo Beach.

I real fifties style Diner that evokes memories of movies of my childhood. Solid American fare! Do not go for the Chicken Pie unless you are prepared to consume about 3000 calories!

Rock and Roll us here to stay. Go to Ruby's for that wonderful burger and milkshake. The atmosphere is fun a catchy. The food is always great and you get a shake and a half when your order one. I just love the left over shake in the blender. Took my in laws there and they loved it.

Take a trip back in time and get some great old fashioned service with a hint of nostalgia. Great views of the beach and perfect for a stroll after dinner.
