Ruby'so is one of our favorites for lunch. We always have good burgers here. My husband likes the hotdogs. All kinds of soda fountain drinks and milkshakes that take you back to the good old days!

I've been to several Ruby's Restaurants, and this is the best! Family environment inside, but adult environment on upper outdoor balcony. Adult beverages and varied menu selection. San Juan breezes and upper vantage point for the view.

Sandwiches very well cooked. The seasoning of the food is excellent. The service is attentive. Could have a bigger variety of beers.
