Rubes diner

Awesome place to eat for breakfast, lunch,dinner. The restaurants decor is like the old diner days ( without the roller skates). It's awesome. The food and the people that work there are fabulous.

We were killing time waiting for our flight so we drove over to the mall in Kakului to find a place to have dinner. We picked Ruby's Diner. There was another restaurant near it but we picked Ruby's. It was very average much like a Denny's. The service was good but the place looked a little run down and not... More

We love going to Ruby's every chance we get when in Kahului. My ultimate favorite are the Hickory Sliders - absolutely delicious! I want my burgers very well done and they consistently cook them to perfection every time. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We love the feel of the diner from days gone by. We recommend a trip... More

We four had a varied but decently good dinner, except for the pot roast dinner which was excellent. Josiah, our server, was really the star. He was friendly, attentive, and a great representative of the diner. If they make tv ads, he should star in them.

I have eaten here every trip. They offer great burgers, and even have gluten free buns for the souse that can't have wheat or gluten. Service is always pleasant and prompt. Great shakes too!

My kids said the burgers were probably the best they had ever eaten (and they know burgers!) We went twice. Seating was slow on one occasion as there appeared to only be one waitress, but generally service was good and the waitresses were pleasant and friendly. It's a nice 50s diner, so lots of fifties stuff on the walls. $60... More

Had the Hickory burger. Very good. Onion rings have a great crunch. Milk shake was great, just a little small for $6. Everything was fresh and the place is clean.
