Always try to eat at Ruthie's whenever we are in the area. Nice selection of menu items. Always well prepared and plentiful. Also fast, friendly service as if we were family.

This was one of the few places to eat out when we moved to this side of town. We have been here many time and always had a good experience. The kids like the puffed corn tortilla with queso on top.

Food was very BLAND. When they took our order did not write anything down and our order was not correct when we received it. Food was overpriced along with a small margarita for $7.25. I would not recommend this restaurant!!

The food was bland. The taco shell tasted stale with low grade bland ground meat. I will never eat here again

Ruthie's is our go-to place for Friday night margaritas and Mexican food. We tried about ten other places in the Katy area and keep coming back here. Why? Because the owners and the staff are determined to make your entire experience a happy one. If you have a favorite server but their section is full or you want to sit... More

Very quick service! The food was out so fast! Good food. Nothing fancy and I wouldn't consider it as great, but it definitely wasn't bad.! I got the chicken Chalupas! I'd definitely eat here again if I needed a good quick lunch! Great price! Clean. And the staff was very polite and friendly. I will probably go back to Ruthie's... More

Ruthie's has two locations near my home, so I visit both locations 1-2 times a month. Ruthie is an established neighborhood restaurant. They provide great service and excellent Mexican food.

The queso flameado appetizer with house made chorizo was excellent. Very good green sauce with the chips too.

Service is always super fast. They once had a habanero sauce that was HOT and very tasty. For some reason they stopped serving it and only have two bland salsas now. Food was properly prepared, steaming hot and worth the money. I just wish they had a spicier salsa as an option for us heat freaks.
