“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We started off at Cheekys, but decided not to stay, would have been an hours wait and the menu was small.
Then came across Rubys. Cannot go wrong for that staple breakfast. Cinnamon bread French toast was delicious.
Older staff but they gave great service.
Made the right choice for breakfast

“BEST MILKSHAKE ON EARTH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Never heard of unlimited fries but what a concept! The atmosphere is very 1950's which is such a massive change to the rest of Palm Springs. The burgers were huge & really nice, as was everything else I ate in this place. The breakfasts are so good, as are the milkshakes. If your in Palm Springs you have to check this place out.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

They do great burgers and their fries and unlimited re-fillable, although i found that the portions were so large I could never eat anymore. Their milkshakes are great too and would recommend getting one. It's in a central location, and easy to get to. We always go when the night market is on, then you can coincide the two. To sum up, cheap, tastes great, quick service.

“Classic goodness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

The atmosphere is adorably 50's without being tacky. The shakes are the best! Classically presented with whipped cream & a cherry, plus they bring the 'working' tumbler with the remainder of your drink that didn't fit in the skinny pretty glass.
Service is excellent. The fare is standard and well prepared, with good portions and sides.
If you choose to sit outside, be warned that the birds - after being routinely fed by unwise patrons - have no fear of humans and may stroll right up to your plate expecting a treat. Even as you shoo them away, an unwanted 'additive' might land in your food.
