“Pleasantly Surprised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

This past saturday, my wife and I decided to try a local restaurant that we have known about but have never tried before. Upon entering, we realized that we were the only people there. lol There wasn't any workers either. I knocked on the kitchen door and the waitress came out,. They must have just opened. She was very friendly and seated us. The decor is kind of fun. Colorful and lively Mexican music added to the experience. The complinentary tortilla chips and salsa were both fresh and good. The waitress very friendly.

We ordered an appetizer and an entree as it was lunch time. The chicken quesedillas and beef and chicken combo were fresh, nicely presented and very filling.

Bottom line, is that we will definetly be returning and think that if your undecided, give it a try. I bet you won't be dissapointed.

“Quick, good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I stopped in Peekskill on the way to The Blaze. We thought that the town would be a little bigger actually, it was just a small main street with a few restaurants. Most restaurants seemed pretty pricey, and we just wanted to grab something to eat, so we settled on Rubens. The restaurant is small. The waiter was very attentive and came over to us immediately, even though the restaurant was pretty busy with a birthday party, and we got served quickly. The food and sangria was good. It wasn't anything special, but not bad either. A good place to go for a quick Mexican meal.

“Get the Frozen Margaritas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

...the strawberry one, to be precise. Overall good, typical Ameri-Mex restaurant. Nothing extraordinarily different but if you are looking for an easy Mexican fix you won't go wrong here. Clean, vibrant decor...staff is very friendly and attentive. I go there all the time and have nothing to complain about. Sometimes on the weekends they have music at night which is also fun!

“Not fancy but food is very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

If you are looking for some good Mexican food that's not all just tacos and enchiladas, head for Rubens. Delicious shrimp dishes. The atmosphere is a little lacking, but the food more than makes a visit worthwhile.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Two of three in my party were "underwhelmed" by their meals.
I thought mine was good but nothing to write home about.
My Patron margarita was good. Prices were very good. Service was excellent.
