There are many Sunday buffets on the Baja coast. The best one by far in the TJ/Rosarito/PrimoTapia area is Rubens. They have a large selction of both American and Mexican foods. Also they have a grill to cook beef, chorizo, chicken, ribs etc. They could go a little stronger on the salads and deserts, but it's a buffet with plenty... More

We've been coming down to this area for years and finally got to the new Rubens. So glad we did! Wonderful food, a beautiful dining room, great service and moderately priced. Have the ribs. Highly recommended.

So this restaurant has decent food. The fresh squeezed OJ is out of this world. Really good clam chowder. The staff was very attentive & cordial. They get 5 stars for the above. I would be remised if I didn't tell you that their chille relleno is sub par. They really need to go back to basics with this dish.... More

Outdoor Sunday brunch was excellent with very tasty food and free flowing champagne for around $15 USD. Only recommendation would be to get better shade because on a warm day the umbrellas cannot cover well enough and someone is always in the bright sun. They are going to open a new Ruben's Buffet at the Pabellon (looks like soon!) -... More

As I've mentioned in a previous review on Ruben's that they accommodate groups of just about any size. This year I coordinated with Ruben to accommodate my group of 30 people for New Year's Eve early dinner. Ruben graciously came up with a special menu selection for my group and was even able to forward to him via email exactly... More

I was there with friends on Christmas eve. I ordered fried clalamari which was beyond indedible. It could not be chewed through. The waiters understood, and the owner was apprised of the situation. He cruised by our table several times and never said a word. Did not greet me going in or out.
