Stopped here after picking up a new RV in Gainesville. We were still getting used to driving it, so wanted to avoid tight traffic and downtown areas. Saw Ruby's mentioned here and parking looked easy so we stopped in. The staff was friendly and capable...More

First time here and we liked this diner. Nice to not be at a chain restaurant. All the tables were full by the time we left. Best part of the meal for me was the Butterfinger Cake.

We stopped into town to have lunch with a friend and he suggested this diner. I had the country fried steak and mashed potatoes and it was a good diner meal. The wait staff was very friendly.

Great club sandwich on the new sandwich menu!! My colleague had the pork loin special and said it was delicious. Would definitely come back and next time try something more Southern!

this is the first time we stopped here to eat. The food was fair and it wasn't anything to brag about. It tasted good but it wasn't great, it wasn't as hot as I thought it should be.
