Recently visited with a friend and, as usual, wasn’t let down. This little spot might not look like much but the food is wholesome and hearty and at a great price. I’ve never had a bad meal in here and have always found the staff...More

If I could rate it a 0 I would. Food was disgusting pizzas uncooked and soggy. Disappointing considering how good this resturant use to be. The place looks dirty and unhygenic. Floor staff were unfriendly and especially the women who seemed to be in charge...More

Usually get a great meal in Ruby's but disappointed this time. Nachos were basically a bowl of dorritos with a dry topping and dragon's tongue was bland and tasteless. Main courses were just ok but will try somewhere else next time.
