Reubens is amazing. Al runs an authentic New Mexican restaurant located in this old log building with something special for everyone. We eat here 15 times a year with family and friends. Chili Rellenos are my favorite. The Chicken Nachos are perfect. Enchiladas with red or green sauce are popular. Even the little kids like this old establishment in CB... More

Rubens is south of Crested Butte in CB South. It's worth the drive if you are staying in CB or Mt CB! The food was great! I recommend the Big Al's margarita and the Chile Rellenos. The green chili is #dabomb! Atmosphere is open and friendly. Kids are welcome here. Good mix of locals and tourists. Big Al, the owner,... More

The staff needs to improve their customer service. The wait to be seated was short but the wait for water took forever then it took even longer for the food to be served, easily over an hour. The staff was rude and the food wasn't good. You would have better luck going to Taco Bell. Disappointed.

we chose Ruben's to give it a first try, and were looking forward, based on previous reviews...we were sorely disappointed. The Margs were bitter, & we had to suggest how to sweeten, after being told by the waitress that customers had complained about that all night. We ordered our food, & waited an hour to be served, & had made... More

Wow! Great food. The green chile on my wife's chimichanga was really hot and YUMMY! They use "Red Bird" chicken. My Chile Rellano was fantastic with a red chile sauce. They cooked it in an iron skillet and then finished it in the oven. My side of pinto beans was so tasty I was sad when they were all gone.... More

I used to love this place, but they've really lost their touch. We would always go for their Monday night 50 cent wing deal. It was a great deal for some good wings. The last few weeks they have been consistently getting smaller and now they are at a point that I would only call 50 cent bones. Let me... More

Ruben's is a wonderful hidden secret. Sometimes I feel like it is my own private restaurant. The owner, Allen, is always the gracious host and the servers are friendly and helpful. Taco Tuesday is one of our favorite things to do as a family. And I love the sweet and spicy chicken wings on Mondays. I recommend finishing with a... More

We were looking for something a little more low key than being herded through one of the usual CB dinner places, and Rubens fit the bill. Food was good, drinks were very reasonably priced and the place is friendly to locals and visitors alike. Service was very slow which was surprising since the restaurant was half full. They smother a... More
