We were concerned about finding breakfast on Labor Day weekend. This store is in the Westfield Mall near the Yard House. Service was good. The food was hot and tasty, and the store was clean. We'll be back.

Normally I'm a huge Ruby's fan, but today was disappointing. We usually visit Ruby's in Huntington Beach where I've never had any issues. Today's service was mediocre, staff was inattentive and seamed annoyed for some reason. food was ok...

Always remember Ruby's in San Louis Obispo, didn't realise they had branched out so much over the years. Grandchildren liked the food and the milkshakes. Good atmosphere, music from my time as a teenager. Friendly staff in a great atmosphere diner.
