Service is always super fast. They once had a habanero sauce that was HOT and very tasty. For some reason they stopped serving it and only have two bland salsas now. Food was properly prepared, steaming hot and worth the money. I just wish they had a spicier salsa as an option for us heat freaks.

We used to go here after church in 2001-2003. Just revisited while in Katy. Same great service but the food is better. Seafood enchiladas were excellent, rest was really good and we ate like savages. Really good spot for real MexTex.

Whenever we go to Katy we go to Ruthie. Always great Tex Med and wonderful staff. We wish we could go every week.

Even better if their salsa was good and used a little better quality beef. Beef often has grissle. Pachuga dishes are their best. Shrimp and chicken dishes seem to be better quality though I notice of late the shrimp size is smaller than in the past.

We live close, so we eat here a minimum of once per week. Usually on Friday nights. The service is exceptional and the food is great! We were concerned when this restaurant changed ownership, but have been very pleased with the results. The staff is so friendly and always greet us with a handshake and smile. It is my first...

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

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.
