Went with group of 8 on friday night at 7 and were seated with no wait. Parking was easy. Seafood enchiladas (1) was tasty and more than enough food. Very fast service for such a busy place. Chips and salsa were good. My only issue is the atmosphere. It was one huge high ceiling dark room like eating in a... More

This is a good place to go if you are in a hurry. The food is good and the service excellent. They also have great margaritas!

I lived in the neighborhood behind Ruthies for 8 years so have dined in and gotten take out from here countless times. My favorites are the beef fajitas and the meatless burrito, both are excellent. The queso that you can get for the chips as a starter is also tasty. I have relatives from Michigan that ask to come here... More

We had a large group at the last minute and I called ahead and they were very very happy to accomodate us, without a wait! The service is always good and the food is really delicious! We go to Ruthie's as often as we can and we've never been disappointed!

We were a large group and the service was cheerful and the food came out quickly. Everyone enjoyed their various meals. It was a little loud, as in hard to carry on a conversation. The restrooms were clean and the staff attentive. The margaritas were decent and overall we enjoyed the meal.

This place wasnt bad, but there was nothing distintive about it. The food was OK but not near as good as the higher end Mexican food restaruants around and still had the same price tag. Service was great though. If you cant get into Los Cucos or Lupe Tortilla, etc... Maybe...?

We've been eating at Ruthie's for years. It's not fancy, but the food is consistently good. The wait staff is friendly and will keep that bowl of chips and salsa full. The manager is a very nice young man who will remember you if you come in often enough and he always has a smile and a welcome for you.... More

I have to agree with Russ B, this restaurant has only average Mexican food in a city that known for it's great Tex-Mex. As a Mexican food lover it is a real dissappointment. The cheese enchiladas contained a block of cheese which was not melted, the rice was Saffron, the beans plain with no spices, and the tortilla soup tasted... More

We go to Ruthie's 1x/month. We have never had a bad meal nor a bad experience. Family oriented, all around good.

Good atmosphere and only average food. The TexMex menu is well delivered, but not much on imagination. They have good turnover so people must enjoy it. Furniture is well worn.
