Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch and dinner here during a short visit to Palm Springs. Great value food with all burgers made using USDA beef. Service was quick and we liked the way we were given water as soon as we were seated, it was 48 Celsius when we stayed!! Great atmosphere with 1950s styling.

“Looks better than it actually is”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Rubys diner looks very attractive from the outside with it's red booths and the 1940/50s memorabilia that decorates in the inside and music. My breakfast, Eggs Florentine, one of my favourites was actually very good, my husbands pancakes and bacon could have been better. But the thing that really let it down was the service. The servers were just not very attentive, we had to ask 2 or 3 times for water and things were just slow, a laid back kind of attitude. By contrast, we'd had breakfast the previous day in a much older diner and the service could not have been faulted. I would recommend this for the food but it is not the best diner in Palm Springs.

“A Breakfast must”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

From stepping through the door till the food arrived it was like stepping back in time. The first thing that struck me was the cleanliness of the Diner. The portions were big and food was tasteful. A wonderful breakfast was had by all our party, don't miss this one....

“Great all American style diner”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is such a great place. Good prices for Palm Springs, excellent diner food and great low fat/ healthy options the staff were attentive and friendly and it stays open late. I even bought some of their delicious hot sauce to take home with me. So love the train going round on tracks above your head.
