“Overrated”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

All I read about on the Ixtapa travel sites was 'eat at Ruben's'. It's highly overrated, and the burgers were just, meh. Pass on the hype. If you're jonesing for a burger, wait til you get home. You'll be sadly disappointed.

“Good Burger Joint”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

When I get a "burger craving" in the Zihuatanejo / Ixtapa area; I go to Rubens. They serve real good burgers, and for a different twist, they serve hot marinades on the side.

“Not a bad choice at all.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The burgers and fries here are pretty good,but have a long way to go to catch up to Canadian and Americanburger joint.If you are a burgerologist like myself you will be a bit dissapointed by the hype surrounding the place but will have a fair meal none the less.It is just a tad overpriced.

“Pretty good burgers”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Rubens burgers are ok. Not really thick patties, but lot's of toppings and tasty. Fries are skinny, and you get a large serving.

“Ruben's is Great”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Ruben's was a great place to go get something that your digestive system is more use to! We love Mexican food but sometimes our stomach needs a break. The portions were huge and fries were fantastic. Service was fast and prices good. You also got a break from the vendors interupting you while you ate.
