50's style diner. Decorated nicely with red vinyl booths. No jukebox. Tentative wait staff dressed in 50's style. Basically a hamburger, fries , and shakes restaurant but also has salads, sandwiches, and other items. Also has sweet potato fries.

Lots of good food for the price. Wide choice for anything for breakfast and lunch. Seniors get a 10% discount. Easy parking. Bright atmosphere.

The old guy that greeted us seems like a jerk with no personality. This guy is just rude and should learn how to smile. My burger was a greasy mess My girlfriends salad was great The server was awesome and extremely friendly she made up for the big jerk that check us in

We were seeking a good lunch spot on our way through Glen Mills when we spotted Ruby's Diner. As fans of old-style diners, we decided to give it a try. We were very pleased with our choice of both lunch spot and food. I had the vegetable soup which while very tasty, was rather light on the veggies and heavy... More

Stopped in to Ruby's Diner this weekend on a trip to Glen Mills, PA. This place looks and feels like a country diner like we used to see when we were kids. The Burgers are fresh and big and cooked to perfection. The Shakes are hand spun and plentiful. My grandson loved the suspended train tracks and it keeps him... More

The food was good but the prices are a little high for a burger joint. Kids like it though, the shakes are good.

Appearance was very classic. Like going back in time. Extremely clean and all of the workers wore 50's style uniforms. Everyone was genuinely friendly. Hubby got a Hickory burger with a side of sweet potato fries and a milkshake. He loved it! I opted for the turkey platter and it was good as well, but I think most people come... More

My daughter and I have eaten here numerous times and the food has always been great. This past Saturday we were seated back where the waitresses get the food and were witness to some horrible non hygienic food handling. I watched in horror as the food was placed out to be picked up and taken to the customer and my... More

We stopped by after a day at Longwood Gardens. Service was great! The menu was great! The food was good!! It was a lot!! Most of this was out issue because we ordered too much. Just know that the portions are going to be big. Love the 40's atmosphere and the trains are a plus.
