We had a wonderful time at Ruby Tequila's Mexican Kitchen. The strawberry margaritas were tasty, the green chili quest was delicious and our service was excellent. The only negative was the inferno sauce was way way hotter than we expected. Too hot for me to be able to finish my meal. I'll get a different sauce next time

Tried the Anaheim Chicken and Mexican enchiladas with green tomatillo sauce. Sides are all starchy and heavy. Enchiladas were flour - also starchy and heavy. Food was on the overcooked or old and boiled down to a concentrate side…sauce was way too tangy strong, looked smoked and thick. Tried a fro marg - which was enormous - had to dilute... More

Love the food and the University vibe. Anything with the queso inferno is dynamite. Literally! It's really hot but really good. What disappoints me the most is the lack of pride in the cleanliness of the place. Not that is dirty. Just always, always there are tables that need to be bused. Dirty bar glassware that is stacked and piled... More

If you refer to something as a "pile-on" you shouldn't skimp on the portions. I am lucky that I wasn't all that hungry. They weren't even busy and the service was slow.

When I saw the filth built-up in the restrooms and the food still left in the seats after the previous customers had left, it should have given me a clue - go somewhere else, it's not worth it. But..I didn't listen. I had the chicken fajitas, I like to call them the over-brined chicken fajitas. Salty, dry, sent it back.... More

Went here for lunch with my partner and his little boy because I was craving Mexican food. I ended up ordering the choose your combo plate and had 2 beef enchiladas with 1 crispy chicken tinga taco with beans and rice. The red sauce for the enchiladas was...too much. I guess maybe it was made from ancho chiles but it... More

Fortunately it was "Happy Hour All Day" Wednesday, so it made up for the average service. I have enjoyed Ruby Tequila's other locations, so had high expectations for this one. My assumption is that the waiter was new to the business, as he was not quite to the standard of Ruby Tequila's waitstaff that I was accustomed. Ultimately I received... More

My husband and I ate here twice in July and really enjoyed it! The beer is very cold and the Nachos are wonderful! The homemade salsa is Great! They have a really good Happy Hour with drinks and appetizers. We will definitely be back!
