Wait staff needs training ASAP! Meals arrive cold and not as ordered. Thirsty? This should be self serve. Management, is laid back and pretends interested in customer service. Quality of food is fair to the pricing.

Charming restaurant with vintage automobiles in the front. You feel as if you have walked on to a Happy Days set. Expansive menu aimed to please everyone. My big regret was not trying one of the Milk Shakes. You cannot go wrong...but your kids will...More

Right on the highway, great for kids. Kids meal comes in a fun tray. As you would expect from Ruby's, the burgers, fries and shakes were on point.

Good burgers, great shakes, but the service is consistently so bad that I don't think I will ever go again. I think you can do better at other local restaurants.

This was an experience that would be hard to top. We loved Ruby's Autodiner in Laguna Beach to-the-hilt. We loved the 1950's decor. The service staff were excellent. We absolutely loved our Apple, Pecan, Blue Cheese Salad. We also enjoyed people watching.
