The small amount of diners during the lunch hour should have been our first clue, but my group of 13 friends pressed on to celebrate one of the ladies' birthdays. Arriving at 11:30 our server was completely overwhelmed handling our group plus a four top in the otherwise unoccupied west dining room. No one else assisted him at any time... More

We enjoy going to Ruby's. The atmosphere is fun and fits the mood of the title of the restaurant. The food is not too spicy but is very tasty. The restaurant could use some cleaning up but it doesn't seem to affect the food. Will visit there again for sure when in lubbock on a wednesday.

This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant in Lubbock! We especially enjoy the all day happy hour on Wednesdays. Our favorite server is Jamie who knows what we will order as soon as she sees us walk in. Now, we make it a point to ask to be seated in her section when we speak with the hostess. Food is... More

We just returned home from dinner at this location. It wasn't bad- my shrimp fajitas were good, but my papas/rice were lukewarm.....almost cold. Our server was FANTASTIC....she was very friendly and attentive. Next time I want Ruby's, though, I will stick to the TTU location.

Great margaritas and food! The wait staff was very nice. We had a party of 19 and were seated in 45 minutes on graduation weekend.

After a terrible time the first time, the company sent us coupons for free food so we would return. What a mistake! 28$ for fajitas for two with tricky wording on the menu. Everything is so expensive! It's mexican food for crying out loud! This time around was worse than the first. The server got my drink wrong, the type... More

The food was great and the service even better. Our waitress was outstanding. Great selection from the menu. Not overrun by the college crowd. Gotta try it!

Ruby T's has very good happy hour specials and if you pair that with their HUGE appetizer platter, three people can eat and have drinks for a very reasonable price. I have always been happy with my food, drink and service at both locations in Lubbock.
