1940s-style diner chain serves comfort food classics to patrons with a craving for nostalgia..
In 1982, businessman Doug Cavanaugh opened the first Ruby's in Southern California's Newport Beach, naming it after his mother. Today, this nationwide chain--adorned with red vinyl booths, Formica tables, soda fountains and retro posters--features the same timeless food and hospitality that keep diners coming back. Favorites are the classic burgers topped with secret RubySauce, fries and sweet shakes. Other staples include pancakes, omelettes, sandwiches, chili, salads and a variety of fountain treats.
Surprised. Went here because I like a good burger and there seemed to be a lot of happy faces inside. The atmosphere did cost a bit to establish, and it does a great job of bringing back those old childhood memories of a classic diner, but will the burger meet the test? I was shocked, for it did. It was cooked properly and was not greasy and best of all - it tasted just like the past. Did I mention the fries are endless? Didn't get that deal when I was a kid which makes this burger a super value. I got a double patty, they charge $3 extra which brought the total to $9.69. I noticed that the meat is formed into a patty on a grill. This is unusual, and I like a place that shows off its food preparation. Even though I like a flame broiled burger and one I can sink my teeth into, I am surprised into giving Ruby's a 10 for the overall experience.
Love that Bumper Car. The best burger in town. Great service. Bright and clean decor. A true "burger joint" complete with cherry cokes and super thick shakes.
50's diner with good food. The styling is out of the 50's lots of chrome. The menu is simple yet sufficient for a 50's like diner. I really liked the atmosphere. The food was good and to pricey.
