Ruby's MainPlace Restaurant Review

: Ruby's in the MainPlace Mall is a sure bet for old-time hospitality and a ’50s-style diner meal. Kids and adults alike delight in the house favorite: a classic burger with a side of fries and a cherry Coke or old-fashioned chocolate shake. There’s also more contemporary and health-conscious fare, like salads and sandwiches, along with hot dogs, soups and chili, just in case you're not in the mood for burgers. Though the chain is a mere quarter of a century old, the original Ruby's was housed in a 1940s-era bait shack at the end of Newport’s Balboa Pier, and all of the 40 or so locations maintain that retro feeling and down-home service.
