Great tasting food, above average portions and a really friendly staff. They are open for dinner but, haven't been for it. They give excellent service and priced right.

Tried this restaurant on 2 different times. Both times I was disappointed with the food. The chicken was dry and disgusting. Couldn't even eat it with ketchup or bbq sauce. The service was good.

$13 for a small soup, bagged salad and 6 ounces of fish was too much. The server was nice and attentive but the food was very medicore. There were a lot of seniors in the joint and the friendly hostess seemed to know all of them so it's certainly an amiable atmosphere but the food was not worth the price... More

My husband & I live nearby in Concord Twp. Ruko's has become one of our favorite restaurants for breakfast or a quick lunch. Service is quick & very friendly staff. I usually order the traditional breakfast with the eggs, link sausage, hash browns-have them add onions & rye toast. Their rye is so good! Coffee is excellent too! On Thursdays... More

I don't understand, I admit, what passes for "home cooked food "today. Evidently no one makes anything that wasn't frozen or packaged? Basically that sums up this place. Go to Giant Eagle, get something frozen, reheat it, that probably would be tastier. The servers were nice enough, The food just is cheap pre-portioned junk. Personally, I don't care if they... More

It doesn't look like much from outside, but the food is really good. And you sure can't beat the prices, for any meal. The owners could probably use some help with decorating, but once you taste the food, you really don't mind.

Went here one night for dinner. They do give you SO much food, just the food isn't very good. I ordered chicken breast and that's what I got. A piece of chicken on a plate, no seasoning or anything. My side salad was turing brown in color also. The chicken noodle soup was good and my boyfriend has dessert and... More

I was going to get my usual quick breakfast at McD's, but saw Ruko's little place on Mentor ave and decided to give it a shot, glad I did. I ordered from their 'Skillet' section. A Mexican type made of diced-smoked chicken, black olives, shaved potatoes, onions and jalapenos topped by two eggs over easy. I'm telling you it was... More
