The best authentic Mexican food in St Louis. Fast, friendly service and reasonable prices. Oh and LOVE the margaritas. I'm so lucky to live only a couple of miles away and visit as often as possible. Not very far off the main highway, so if you love Mexican food... you gotta make plans to have dinner there, cause once you... More

The food is always great when we go here. I love their empanadas! Fish tacos are awesome. Salsa is so fresh. EVERYTHING is good. Perfect for friends, family, and date nights. They have a full bar that is separated from the restaurant, too. One if my favorite places!

We just moved to the area and friends recommended Ruiz. The staff is friendly and helpful. Whenever we have gone the wait was minimal. The food is delicious,hot and flavorful. I particularly like the chicken chimichanga with guacamole and sour cream. You need to try this place. It great for families, girls night, business lunches etc.

The service is average...nothing to write about. The salsa is very bland....not homemade...rather, something they got from a jar. The chips are the same way...from a bag, not homemade like most Mexican places. The fajitas on the other hand were excellent, as were the margaritas.

I don't know about "authentic", but well seasoned, served promptly and hot with lots of flavor make me a fan of this fabulous old timer in Florissant, MO. Since returning from San Antonio some 9 years ago, twice we tried to dine at Ruiz, and the waits were interminable. We went there for lunch on a Saturday and basically had... More

There is a very good reason Ruiz has been operating for over 40 years. Value, great food, and consistantly friendly you can't go wrong. Try their Cadillac Margarita!! Recommend the Macho platter to get a sample of many items they have on their massive menu.

We were looking for a restaurant on a Monday evening and several of our choices were closed, so we ended up at Ruiz'. We're glad we did. The food was delicious and served piping hot. I especially enjoyed my tamales. We appreciated that it was not typical Mexican chain restaurant food. Service was fast and friendly. There is also a... More

Because of TA reviews, we had dinner here tonight while staying over in Florissant. The positive reviews were accurate. The food was good and served on a hot plate so it stayed hot. The menu had many of the usual Mexican dishes as well as some that were new to us. The service was fast and friendly and we appreciated... More

The food here is amazing and the service is excellent. I usually dine here once per week. The food always comes out quick and is hot and fresh. The salsa is amazing and the burrito melt is my absolute favorite.
