I've always loved the food at Ruby's. New owner taking over now. I hope the food is just as good. The new owner is supposed to have the same menu and recipes.

One of the few places open in town after we'd enjoyed a cajun concert and dance at the Liberty Center a block way, we had a nice meal in the courtyard under the stars. Good food, pleasant staff, nice evening.
