On our way back to California from our annual visit to Mesa, Arizona, we stopped at this Ruby's Cafe near the Morongo Casino. We were seated by a friendly waiter and had water not long after. Our order was taken and delivered soon after. I especially liked my bowl of chili. It had shredded beef, chopped onion and lots of... More

We had a great meal and very good service. The setting is an old time diner, lots of red and chrome.

We first discovered this place on a visit 3 years or so ago, and couldn't wait to get back. We stopped here or a quick lunch on our way to Morongo Valley. We had the basic cheeseburger and fries. Their prices are very reasonable and the food tastes delicious. The restaurant is a delight to the senses and you really... More

Love, love, love their Classic a Ruby Burger with a strawberry milkshake. Wait staff are always friendly. If you don't care for burgers they have many other things to choose from on their menu.

Stopped here towards the end of a very long day. Had a great waitress. Wife had some kind of salad and I had a grilled cheese and milkshake. Definitely no complaints on the food. Decor is fun, prices are reasonable.

Ruby's is in a perfect location between Morongo Casino and the Cabazon Outlets. Their burger and fries were hot and delicious. We can't wait to return. We loved their cheerful decor and sat right next to the Indian Motor bike on display.

What atmosphere! A great place for families and couples alike! The bike is superb - just imagine Ruby on it years ago! This is our second Ruby's to visit and burgers are excellent! Fish recommended also. Enjoy!

Our first visit to a Ruby's and what a treat! Christina was our hostess and nothing was too much trouble. This diner was amazing with all the photos from the old days and an original Indian motor bike proudly raised up and on display. Apparently Ruby had straddled this aged 87 years old - quite a gal! But she sadly... More

We were on our way to Arizona and stopped for lunch. It appeared that hamburgers were the thing to have and we did, along with french fries. The food was very good - the meat was of a high quality and the french fries cooked perfectly, and you can have as many as you want. It made for a very... More
