I really don't like to jump on the bandwagon here but it is where I find myself.
I have nothing against Ruby's, and nothing against airport restaurants (see my Ruby's review from Orange County).
1. I didn't get what I ordered (but it was what was on the receipt... Bad ordering staff.
2. Burger just didn't taste good.
3. The place needs major updating. Paint job and replacing of faded posters would help.
4. Maybe a mop on the floor as well.
Not to owners: just because it is in an airport doesn't mean you can drop standards. This should be a highlight of your travel experience, not a disappointment.

“Loved it!”

Great sandwiches! Hamburgers were great and turkey BLT sandwich was HUGE - it is big enough for 2 people. Good service, too. Would definitely eat there again!

“Better than Expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Airport food is usually a drag....and then they push you out. This place served me quickly; the food was reasonably good and priced fairly. The eating area was away from the crowds and pretty quiet.

“Surprised how good it was”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Wasn't expecting much from a fast food joint in LAX, but two of us had hamburgers, and I can honestly say I enjoyed mine a lot. Some people had a slow service experience, but ours came quickly. The hamburger was really good, even if it wasn't from an airport joint.
