Ruby Tequila's has a pretty good Tex Mex menu, but I'm a big fan of their chips and salsa. I know that may sound trivial, but chips and salsa are a big deal here in Texas. The chips are thin, but that's how I prefer mine. What the salsa lacks in heat, it more than makes up for in flavor.... More

Best chicken quesadillas! Perfectly browned tortillas, chicken was shredded and tasted grilled, condiments were excellent, too. Service was very good. Impressed also with the service to a large group of 40-50 in long tables across from our booth. The large group was mixed ages children and adults and far enough away from us not to be too loud. Also, their... More

My experience at Ruby Tequila's was very disappointing. This location across from the Texas Tech campus has so much potential – spacious and nicely decorated. The servers worked effectively in a team and checked back on us often. But the food was some of the worst I’ve had in Lubbock. The enchiladas were not bad, but none of the food... More

We were seated quickly, but it took over 10 minutes before a server came by to see if we'd been helped. Our food took another 30 to 45 minutes to come out and when it did it was COLD! This was my first visit and it will also be my last. I cannot comment as to how the food tasted... More

We went there because we love Mexican and this place did not disappoint. You get unlimited chips and salsa while waiting for order to come. I had a skinny margarita which was good, and strong. I highly recommend the chicken taco salad. It was awesome and fun as well because, instead of coming in,the typical bowl shaped shell, it was... More

If you travel to Lubbock on Sunday trying to find food at 2pm is difficult if you are avoiding fast food. This place has several grilled options and patio area. It is by campus so it's a safe area with college crowd.

Our waiter was extremely nice and did a wonderful job, however my meal and margarita was very disappointing. While I appreciate the wonderful service I would not recommend this restaurant.

Went the the night before the TCU-Tech game. Ate at the outside bar. Food was fine, Queso a little thin. Limited beer selection. Nice place to hang out.

The server informed us they were out of beans- that wasn't the worst of it. Table of six that walked in long after us Was served first. 45 minutes for party of 3 and ordered off the lunch menu. They weren't even that busy. Never again
