Love the decorating of the diner, it is tasteful and authentic. It was a busy day with a few people waiting, however we were seated very quickly. The menu is very extensive, so much choice, I couldn't decide quickly. Our meals came quickly and were very good, tastey and filling. Service was good, would recommend.

After a long day of shopping, Ruby's Diner Citadel hits the hunger spot. The smell of real beef grilling attracts your senses to come eat. Themed and designed after American Diners of the 40's Swing Era, the atmosphere also adds to the authenticity. Ruby's burgers and meat have a unique flavor and smell to them - a modern experience to... More

We had lunch here after shopping at the Citadel outlets. The menu doesn't have anything healthy on it, so we ended up eating burgers. Would be great to at least offer a bit more variety, but the waitress was very nice. Service was very fast, which is great if you are shopping.

Was at the outlets shopping looking for something quick and good. Was very impressed great menu and a great atmosphere. Food was tasty and quick and good service. Would not hesitate to go back again. They also give a great kids menu that turns into a food truck great to pass time when you are waiting on your meal.

I really enjoyed my breakfast. It was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was good. The decor is 50's diner, but with a car inside! Very cool. I would eat here again the next time I'm in the neighborhood

Ate breakfast here to pass the time while waiting for Citadel Outlets to open for business. The huevos rancheros were just as good as I remember them, and the service fast and friendly! At 8:15am, there are few better choices available.

I would give this place a solid 3.5 stars. It was actually better than I expected. True, the decor/concept of this chain is a little cheesy, but this is a nice place to grab a bite when you're out shopping at the Citadel Outlet. I had a turkey burger which was pretty good, not dry like many restaurants that you... More

We ate at Ruby's following a day of shopping at the Citadel Outlets. Cool themed 50s diner. Traditional American food - burgers, fries, shakes etc. Delicious food, reasonably priced and served quickly. Attentive staff.

Thank Sue B
