We have been enjoying Ruby's since the 1980s. Good Food and good service. My favorite meal is the garden patch sandwich which was taken off the menu about 15 years ago. However, they will still make it on request. So yummy!!

Good food...they have salads but with fries, onion rings, tasty turkey and regular hamburger may be hard to eat healthy. Also have several shapes and dessert choices. This Ruby's overlooks the manmade lake in the park in Irvine.

You can't beat the quality of the burgers at Ruby's. Also love that they will cook the meat medium rare on request. Fries are super and shakes thick, creamy and generous. Can't go wrong here.
