“Very friendly staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Our server was very friendly and attentive. Our food, however, was only average. I had a torta and the bottom bun was extremely soggy to the point that I couldn't really pick it up.

“Best Mexican Restaurant in St. Louis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

If you`re in the North County / Florissant area for any reason, you need to stop by and taste the best authentic Mexican food in the area. While others claim that they`re the best, you`ll see why Ruiz has been voted #1 for many years.

It`s a family run restaurant, where you`re treated like family. We`ve been going to Ruiz for so long we`ve seen the young family members of the owners grow into fine adults, that now run the restaurant. Not a bunch of kids mind you, but well rounded young adults that take pride in a family tradition.

The food is always served with a smile and is hot and made to order. The drinks are served cold along with tasty chips and salsa that can`t be beat. They also have an outdoor seating / smoking section where you can eat, drink and smoke while enjoying a sporting event.

There`s also 2 family seating areas inside to take care of those family gatherings, with a tv and dvd player to occupy the youngsters while the adults visit. A nice touch don`t you think ? So, if you`re in the area or even if you`re not, you`ll owe it to yourself to stop by and try Ruiz. I think once you do, you`ll be raving about it like we do !

“best mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Ruiz is a Florissant treasure. They have the best tasting freshest food with great staff and atmosphere. We have been going there for dinners for over 15 years. The food has always been hot and fresh and we have never had any issues. They make room for big parties with little or no notice. They have great parking. The best thing on the menu is the nacho's order them the way you want them but be prepared to get messy.

“Great Authentic Mexican!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Love everything from the apps to dessert. The ChoriQueso is amazing. If you have room for dessert, the fried ice cream is a must. Come here a lot with friends. Great drink specials. Great food.
