On business travel and looking for some good food. Ordered a chicken taco salad and a side enchilada. Salad was mostly iceberg and although the chicken in it was very tasty, there just was not much of it. The chili Colorado enchilada was very good tho. Was a little different than I'm used to. Kind of a cheese enchilada with... More

I visit this place a while back and was very disappointed. The restaurant wasn't crowded but I had to wait about 10 minutes before anyone came to seat me. The chips weren't fresh or hot and the food wasn't tasty at all. I haven't been back since and do not plan to. The waitress was just ok I think she... More

My mom gave me a gift card for Ruiz for my birthday! NICE! My hubby and I got to enjoy a nice early dinner, very quiet when we got there, almost too quiet.

Received a coupon in the mail for 10.00 off a meal. For two people the bill was still I've $30.00 and that was after the $10.00, no alcohol beverages, no appetizer. Just two meals. Also, my daughter is vegetarian, ordered without the beef, yet beef on the plate. It was obvious they tried to just scrap the meat off. If... More

Looked clean, plenty of parking and a nice looking large bar. Waitress took our drink order and brought chips n salsa, both were good and... More

One of our families favorite Mexican restaurant. It is local and the food is very good. They use traditional recipes and we have yet to be disappointed. My husband and I first went here back in the 60's and it has always satisfied. Now the family enjoys visits. Food is great and service is as well. They never rush you... More

When my friends and I went to Ruiz' the staff was very friendly and we were set pretty quickly. The atmosphere was very authentic the food was pretty good but the service could have used some polish. Overall it was an enjoyable time!

Ruiz's has been around at this location for 40 years. Prices are reasonable, but the food is too bland for my taste. The menu has a large selection and alcohol is available. Service was good.

Thank kermitvb
