For of us for dinner. Took forever to get food. Rice had no flavor. Tacos were ok. Easy to pass on this place.

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.

Two of three in my party were "underwhelmed" by their meals. I thought mine was good but nothing to write home about. My Patron margarita was good. Prices were very good. Service was excellent.

Very good Mexican food (big portions...bring a doggy bag), nice staff, big outside seating area. Music can be a bit loud but it's fun and attracts a good crowd, particularly on weekends. Great bartenders! Prices are very fair and it's a nice place to spend an evening.
