Stopped to have a quick dinner before heading off to do other things. Good food and quick service. Good value for the money.

Ruthies Diner is a great little greasy spoon. Good food at good prices. The hot roast beef and grilled ham and cheese are excellent and their ham and bean soup is also very good. Get there early on the weekends, because there will be a line and don't expect anything fancy.

Our group of 9 walked into Ruthies at about 10:45am on the first day of fly fishing season; they were very busy but we were able to sit down right away as there happened to be a large table open. The place had that "diner" feel to it. The food selection was typical breakfast fare: omelettes, sausage, eggs, potatoes, etc.... More

One of the few authentic diners around these days. Have eaten breakfast there on several occasions. Tons of food at a reasonable price. The bacon came crisp as ordered and was very flavorful. The place was packed with locals, usually a good sign. Their dinner choices looked good also. Good "stick-to-your-ribs" food.

This intimate small 'tapas bar/restaurant' is owned/operated by a native Spaniard. Fairly new concept for Greensburg so the crowds are sporadic. I have lived in Spain and the 'comida' ..food.. Is as wonderful as in Valencia. He is on target with quality..potatoes ..calamari..croquettes.. -all delicious! The half price sangria was tasty. The ambiance simple yet stated. You can also rent...

Old, dumpy, greasy (and not in a good way). Staff was nice, food and atmosphere were below average. Coffee tasted burned. I guess this was the local favorite once-upon-a-time...IMO those times have long passed.

Homecooked fare at 1970's prices. Soups, especially the bean and chicken.. are as good as my mom's. The desserts are to die for. Fish sandwich really tasty and the best breakfast for the $$. Service terrific ... Atmosphere a bit dated but that's what makes it a 'must stop' when passing thru Ligonier.

This place has been around for a long time. It is good for a cheap breakfast. The lunches and dinners are ok. Prices are more than fair. This seems to be a place the older generation likes the most. This place is also cash only. I eat here a few time a month...breakfsat only.
