One of the best soul food places in the area. Food taste just like your grandmother made it and everyone is so friendly! Will definitely be visiting again!

Family run restaurant, simple dining with good southern style food. Especially enjoyable after church on Sunday.

We got off I 65 to look for a fast food place and spotted Ruby's Diner. What a hidden treadure. Homemade good and such warm accommodating staff. We were so lucky to find this gem.

I have had lunch there a couple of times with my supervisor. Food is great!!! It is served in a fashion like a buffet but the server is behind the buffet table assembling your plate. Very personable staff and Ruby knows everyone. You are never a stranger no matter where you are. If I worked in Abbeville, I would probably... More

A small house has been renovated with a cafeteria style serving line, staffed by Ruby and her family. Food is prepared real southern style, with plenty of seasoning and LOVE.

Ruby's Diner came up on Tripadvisor and low and behold had 5 stars. We decided it looked perfect and made the couple mike trip off 431. It was well worth the detour! Fantastic... More

Discovered this restaurant by accident, selected Ruby Tuesday's in my GPS and it took us here. It is family business that is semi-buffet style (they brought our drinks to the table and any other items we wanted to try). This is more of a soul food restaurant that is very clean and the staff is very attentive. At first we... More

I love the good plain home cooking in this place. I feel so welcomed when I eat there and I've never had anything I didn't like!

We enjoyed our meal and the friendly, efficient staff. Very casual served buffet-style with generous portions and a good variety. I especially appreciated the foods not being over salty or greasy.
