This particular facility seems to be slowly dying. There have been less and less customers over the years. Waiting for long lines is not an issue. Being seated because somebody is not at the front counter is. I LOVE the turkey burgers, fries are nice ... Shakes and Malts totally ROCK !!!! Breakfast was not a pleasant experience. I tried...

Rudy's food is always good at what ever restaurant I go to. However, the friendly staff and service sets this one apart. Been here a couple of times and always the same good service.

Rubys is always good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner but their breakfast menu is especially excellent.

Ruby's isn't my typical burger spot but I do know that they have gluten-free buns and while I was making a quick stop at the Laguna Hills Mall the normal restroom was blocked from usage by some silly dinosaur exhibit so on my way out of the mall Ruby's caught my eye and I thought "clean restroom, hot french fries,...

We were there on a Sunday am and got a table right away. Some of our party arrived before the rest, so we ordered some beignets to start. They were lovely pillows of dough...not greasy or heavy at all. That's just the way that I like them! Our party of 7 was served promptly after we ordered. I had the... More

Some days the food is great, others its only ok. But the last time we went my husband has a real bad reaction to a TURKEY BURGER. I had a ruby melt, which is always very good, my sister had a regular burger, and my husband decided to eat healthy for the first time ever. He had a reaction within... More

I believe Ruby's pecan waffle combo is he best breakfast available in this area; ;however, today we went in for lunch and split the sea food platter with a shake. Both were excellent and plenty of food for two seniors.

Ruby's Diner is at the end of the Balboa Pier. Beautiful view!!! Fifties-style diner with good diner food! Reasonably priced. Biggest issue is that, although they serve beer and wine inside the diner, there are NO public restrooms. You have to walk all the way back along the pier to the public restrooms on the beach. Very inconvenient!
