35 Years Ago…
On December 7th, 1982, our founder and CEO, Doug Cavanaugh, opened the doors to the very first Ruby’s Diner. At the end of the Balboa Pier what once was an old bait shop had been transformed into a sparkling diner with authentic antique décor, jivin’ tunes from a past time, and friendly service, Ruby’s Diner was seemingly straight from the 1940’s. The tiny 45-seat restaurant, which was named after Cavanaugh’s mother, Ruby, opened with just three employees and a simple menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, and malts. In its first day, it brought in a whopping $63, but most importantly, smiling guests looking to remember a simpler, happier time.
Now, 35 years later, over 35 Ruby’s Diner restaurants can be found in all different parts of the country such as California, Nevada, Texas, and Pennsylvania, including mall, casino, and airport locations. We’re proud to continue our legacy of providing guests with quality service and delicious diner cuisine. Here’s to many more years of Shooby Doobying down to Ruby’s!
