“Perfect place for comfort food”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Whether you want a hot dog, a hamburger, a grilled cheese, or true comfort food - Ruth's is the place to go in Hartsville. It is small and so friendly. Many patrons know each other and it is just a great little local establishment for a quick bite combined with friendly service. Kids love it too.

“Local Comfort Food”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

You must stop in at Ruth's if you're in Hartsville. They have good local comfort food and after ten minutes you'll feel like a neighbor. Everyone raves about their chili cheeseburger. If you have the fried green tomatoes, be sure to ask for the special sauce. We'll stop here whenever we're in town.

“Good, basic food and cheap”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Another place frequented by both locals and college students. The food was filling and cheap. My husband had a BLT for $3.00 and my freshly made hamburger was only $4.00. If I had been hungrier, I would have ordered the daily special. A lot of people were enjoying fried chicken, 3 different side orders, cornbread, and a dessert for $7.70. We went for lunch, but they are also open for breakfast.

“Great place for Lunch”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Good hometown food for a good price. Love the hot hamburger, open faced hamburger, with gray over it. Nice little diner tucked away in Hartsville.

“Hartsville Tradition”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We eat at Ruth's every time we come to town! Chili Cheeseburger and fries is a staple in my Ruth's diet. The do lots of hometown southern cooking and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's a joy to eat in a small, family run restaurant where everybody seems to be on a first name basis and are actually happy to see you !
