Overall good experience. Nice atmosphere and wait staff with prompt service. The food was good, nothing extraordinary. They do make each tortilla fresh and the chips and salsa were very good. The margaritas are huge and are priced very well.

I really enjoyed my evening after losing my bf. The staff were amazing and kind. The place was busy so the wait was no biggy since they had free chips and salsa and they had the best margarita ever

This used to be a favorite of ours, however recently it has gone downhill in a really bad way. We had dirty plates and glasses with obvious lipstick on them. When we mentioned it, there really was no comment or apology, but we were brought clean ones so that was...nice. Food was mediocre. Our servers were so nice and were... More

The food was just ok. This used to be one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the Texas Panhandle but I believe they have sold out and the restaurant is not as good as it used to be. Quite often it is dirty and the service is not good. Twice recently, they've given me the wrong food when I went... More

Sat on the patio for 20 minutes and when no one came we went to the bar. This happened to my friend a week ago as well. Our server was inconvenienced by us the entire time we were there. And I'm pretty sure I saw servers drinking at the bar as well.

My family and I stopped here to grab a quick bite for lunch before our movie. We ended up ordering the Ruby Sampler which had beef nachos, taquitos, queso, quesadillas, beef fajitas, chips and salsa, and empanadas served with jalapeno ranch. Currently the sampler is $15.99 and fed 3 people. The beef nachos were topped with cheese, ground beef, and... More

The food was good, and the waitstaff was helpful, attentive, and accommodating. Comfortable atmosphere was great for a family get-together, and the location was centrally located & easy to navigate.

We had visited this Ruby Tequila's one Sunday after going to church. We arrived about 12:30 and were seated and got our drinks and appetizers and waited for our food. The food took almost an hour and could have been better. I ordered the Bacon Burger, and the buns were so sweet that it made the entire burger bad. My... More

We had a party of 10 at 7:30pm on the Friday night. We did have to wait a few minutes but not bad. They have a large dining room and several tables that can accommodate groups of people. The chips and queso were great. The fajitas were excellent. We will go back when in the area.
