Service Was so Slow. It took more Than 45 Minutes To Give Us The Food. The Food Had No taste. The Ceviche Shrimp were frozen and Had No taste. Very cheap Meat Quality. We Finished Our Drinks And They Never asked us If We wanted Another Drink. Overall I don't recommend This Restaurant To Anyone. This Restaurant is So terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stopped here on the fly for a quick lunch. Sat outside which was nice. Ordered simple dishes. Waited 45 minutes and finally asked where our food was since everyone else had been served long ago. Indifferent waitstaff finally gave us a ridiculous story and probably put in our order for the first time. When the food arrived it was very... More

Based only on the food I ordered and tasted myself, this restaurant barely ranks 3 stars in my book. The food was bland-bland-bland. Stale tortilla chips: I could taste no jalapeno or onion or cilantro in the salsa OR the guacamole! What?!?! It was bland. Bland, i tell you. Oh, the inhumanity... The service was pleasant and promisingly attentive. But... More

We have been going to Rueben's for years, and always enjoy our meal. It is a cute restaurant and the service is very good. We start with the made at your table guacamole and frozen margarita's which is always great. We never order our main meal right away or you will be in and out of that place in a... More

This past saturday, my wife and I decided to try a local restaurant that we have known about but have never tried before. Upon entering, we realized that we were the only people there. lol There wasn't any workers either. I knocked on the kitchen door and the waitress came out,. They must have just opened. She was very friendly... More

My husband and I stopped in Peekskill on the way to The Blaze. We thought that the town would be a little bigger actually, it was just a small main street with a few restaurants. Most restaurants seemed pretty pricey, and we just wanted to grab something to eat, so we settled on Rubens. The restaurant is small. The waiter... More

...the strawberry one, to be precise. Overall good, typical Ameri-Mex restaurant. Nothing extraordinarily different but if you are looking for an easy Mexican fix you won't go wrong here. Clean, vibrant decor...staff is very friendly and attentive. I go there all the time and have nothing to complain about. Sometimes on the weekends they have music at night which is... More

If you are looking for some good Mexican food that's not all just tacos and enchiladas, head for Rubens. Delicious shrimp dishes. The atmosphere is a little lacking, but the food more than makes a visit worthwhile.
