Stopped in for lunch on Presidents Day. Was early and there were not many customers there yet. Menu has something for everyone with burgers of various sizes and meat options. I chose the tuna and was astounded at the size of the portion. It came beautifully seared and seasoned with an interesting slaw Upgraded to the chili fries and was... More

A 1960s diner located in the Redondo Beach harbor area. Great for families and a fun time. Food is what you would expect--hamburgers and shakes. Parking in the adjacent lot cost a couple of dollars but you walk right up to the entrance. Never really that crowded so most of the time you can just show up. Seniors can get... More

Food is ok. Location is great. Service is slow. Shouldn't take so long to get your food when the restaurant is not busy.

Fun fifties diner with quite an array of burgers and sandwiches. My husband enjoyed a BLT, and I had a Mediterranean salad. Our food was fresh and flavorful. The absolute highlight was the chocolate shake we shared. Service was efficient and friendly. Wr liked seeing so many families out together.

We ate here a few times in Redondo Beach and it was great every time. The breakfast beignets were delicious, so was the chocolate milkshake and lettuce wrapped burger. Staff were efficient and food came fast!

Ruby's Diner has some truly good food on offer and the uniforms and surroundings transports you back to the 1950's, having had breakfast and dinner with no problems and enough food to take away with you if that's your kind of thing. The only reason not to give full marks was that the location was fairly cold even on a... More
