Worst restaurant I have ever ate at. First off we ordered their famous char broiled burger. I honestly think they boiled them they were far from char broiled. We asked the waitress what came with them for fries. She pointed at a bowl telling us each burger came with a bowl of fries. When we got our order I didn't... More

The quality of beef patties wasn't as good as we felt it should be since it specializes in burgers. The service was good and the restaurant is very clean. It is worth giving another try but would order something other than a beef burger.

This place is relatively close to the hotel zone, but you need to walk a bit off the main road to get there (still only minutes away). You can clearly see their sign from your hotel if you have town view, so will be able to easily get there. Burgers are very good, but may be on the slightly more... More

Ruben's hamburgers lived up to its name. We didn't venture the menu as we felt it was best to have what the place boasted. Curly fries, tall bottle of Coke, mediocre service. Earlier is better than later, as huge line to get in later in the evening. Popular place. Recommended if you need a diversion from traditional foods.

Reuben's is a simple, open concept restaurant that focuses on hamburgers. We had a few hamburgers in Ixtapa and their burger was definitely the best - juicy with a slight wood smoked flavor along with a good bun and toppings. The bacon cheeseburgers were excellent and the service was quick and efficient even though the restaurant was very busy. We... More

Expected a good homestyle cooked burger, was not the case. Burgers were gross and service wasn't good. Fries were the only decent thing we got.

Excellent Hamburgers, grilled over mezquite really brings out the flavor. They also serve fried plantains which are very good. Best burger in Ixtapa.

Ruben's has been around forever and does an excellent job, but I could do without the shredded cabbage on top of the burgers. When they get busy service can get a bit slow, so go before you get too hungry!
