Great burger and service

Had a burger that was plenty big and tasted like home. If your kiddos are freaking out and can't eat mex every day, this is your spot. 50 pesos for a kids meal is a life saver (burger, chicken nuggets, quesadillas)

I had a bad experience at Rueben's Deli, suggesting they are dishonest people. My husband was sick yesterday and only wanted fries for lunch, so I decided to go to Rueben's. I asked if I could order only a side of fries, and how much it would cost. The woman said it would be 70 pesos. I answered it was... More

We had heard that the fries and burgers were the best in Sayulita. What a surprise when the owner carried 10 lb slab of fresh tuna from his golf cart – really the only way to travel around town. When my wife asked for it to be "just slightly cooked", he said that he would sear it. "That's the word,... More

I usually stay away from at home foods (American and Canadian dining) while I'm away. Since I'm in Sayulita for 3 months. I started craving a good sandwhich or burger! Rubens is delicious and fresh with great service. The Classic burger is my favourite but they also have a great BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado) Definitely try it if... More

I gotta be honest. I'm a reuben fanatic. It's the single dish that I can be the most critical of, if none done correctly. So the prospect of one of these sandwiches being good in Mexico seemed like a stretch. But I'll be damned, it was actually pretty darn good! Sure, it wasn't the best I've ever had, but they... More

Really nice place, the service is great and casual, nice food, nice vibe. Not much to ask! Quite a good variety of items sold. All of them with excellent portion size.

This was the perfect place to visit when you are craving something other than Mexican. We usually always try to stick to traditional food when travelling because American food is never really the same or as good as back home. Not the case with Rueben's! The sandwiches and burgers were so good we went back a second time to feed... More

We go here often, sometimes more than we should! Heh heh heh. I love the turkey melt with potato salad and my wife LOVES the cob salad, in fact she often says she could live off it!

So this is one of the first places we ate. Great sandwiches, attentive service, reasonable prices. 4 stars out of 5 because when we asked for a dessert menu they pointed to the neigbors gelateria!???

Our first recommendation when we arrived in town was Reuben's; great recommendation for a fresh and tasty mid day sandwich. Totally not indigenous, so what? Great sandwiches speak the universal language of lunch. We plan to pack them on return trip home as suggested by original banner. Good idea.

Thank Lloyd B
