Rudy's food is always good at what ever restaurant I go to. However, the friendly staff and service sets this one apart. Been here a couple of times and always the same good service.

I believe Ruby's pecan waffle combo is he best breakfast available in this area; ;however, today we went in for lunch and split the sea food platter with a shake. Both were excellent and plenty of food for two seniors.

Ruby's Diner is at the end of the Balboa Pier. Beautiful view!!! Fifties-style diner with good diner food! Reasonably priced. Biggest issue is that, although they serve beer and wine inside the diner, there are NO public restrooms. You have to walk all the way...More

This is one of the few places that you can get a good malt, not just a shake. I like the double chocolate chip shake the best. They have a large variety of burgers, and the Cajun fries are the best, and they keep bringing...More
