Our Story


Ruby’s Diner opened its doors December 7, 1982 on Balboa Pier in Newport Beach, California. Who would have thought a small shack sitting on the end of a pier surrounded by the Pacific Ocean would be the start of something truly magical? This small shack was converted to a diner reminiscent of times gone by. With a name as simple as its menu, Ruby’s Diner offered the highest quality burgers, shakes and fries. And, with a service motto of “Only the Best for Our Guest”, Ruby’s Diner quickly became the talk of the town. Guests were visiting from near and far, wowed by an experience that was remarkable, memorable, and fun. As news spread and business grew, Ruby’s Diner began to expand both its menu and locations. Now, with locations throughout Southern California and cities across America, Ruby’s has become the quintessential community diner serving up memories with the highest quality breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in a sparkling clean store with the friendliest service around.
