“Good Burgers”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. I had a Turkey Burger with fries and I must say that it was one of the best I have every had. The service was a little slow but they were very busy, and the ambiance was really good...felt like the good old days. I would recommend this place for sure.

“Nostalgic Dinner”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Ruby's restaurant presented nostalgic atmosphere for dinner. The strawberry shake was very creamy and best we had. The fish and chips was plentiful. Four pieces of fish were served. The service was attentive and friendly. My cousins' first visit to Ruby's was very memorable.

“== very good burger ==”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Very good burger in a throwback to another era with glaring colours. Good service, too.

Apparently, the shakes are good, but we didn't try them.

Tylers is another good place for burgers, just down the road.

“Goo thick shake”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you are looking for just a good ,thick shake that brings back "the good old days" then stop at his one. I can't critique the food because I only wanted a shake but I was taken back to the drugstore days when you got a "real"shake. Good selection of favors.

“Quick bite in Palm Springs Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

This rest. was no better nor any worse than any other diner. We ate outside in the street which allowed us to people watch while dining on salads and/or hamburgers. They claim a special sauce on their hamburgers but I could not taste it. It was rather sloppy and dripped into my lap (not cool to walk around with stained white capris).
