Although a Chain, Ruby's does it right - the 50's theme of red and white decor and Dress is great - the burgers are huge and wonderful. A must if you have kids - they will love it -but should share the meals

If you like burgers, this is the place for you - I always enjoyed the bleu cheese one and the mushroom is tasty too. It's a great location but I wish they would improve their other dishes (anything non-burger); I'd go there more often. Sometimes I just don't feel like a burger and their other dishes taste like they came... More

This Rubys is typical of the others, nothing special. Four of us went for an early dinner on a Friday night. Three out of the four orders were wrong. Burgers come with soft, under cooked fries. Burgers are average at best. Patties are premade and taste it, really dry. Dinner salad is blah, not worth eating. Turkey sandwich comes on... More

We had better burgers a Mac D. They were served in a basket. Quaint but impractical. I rather eat of a plate.

Nice replica of a 50's style diner in Redondo beach harbor. Does not have a great view though. The food is supposed to be like a Diner and they do have a selection of items above just burgers. We have tried many of the items over the years and they are alright if you like lots of salt. They must... More

Myself and my eldest son had breakfast here one morning, early as we were going on a trip that day. On that occasion the food and service was fine however my wife and youngest son had breakfast at a later time on the same day and suffered very slow service. I went for breakfast with my 2 sons on another... More

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.
