I am not partial to Mexican food, but the rest of the group I went out with enjoys it. Ruben's offers great service, a nice atmosphere and worthy presentations of menu items you'd expect to find at a restaurant with Mexican cuisine. The drinks were potent and delicious. If you are a fan of this type of cuisine, you are... More

We had been here in 2013 and hadn't had a pleasant experience. Thankfully time has dramatically improved this restaurant. The interior is pleasantly decorated in Tex/Mex style and is warm and  inviting. The staff is well trained and friendly. We were running late and didn't order an appetizer but the warm tacos and cool dipping sauce were as filling as... More

Fresh, lively food, alfresco dining on the weekends, and a shrimp ceviche to die for. Not your every day Mexican fare.

Ruben's management cares and it shows. A lovely decor but simple. The food is well prepared and tasty. They go the extra mile and send you home with a smile.

This is our favorite place to go with a group of friends. Great drinks and a fun vibe. Food is good and portions are plentiful. The guacamole is made table-side and is awesome! They have late night dancing that we've stayed for a couple times and had a lot of fun.

We had dinner at Ruben's and it was delicious. My friend is vegan and the waitress was very accommodating. The tostadas were awesome. Chips and salsa are fresh and free. Also, the décor is festive.

Looks like a hole in the wall, but as we entered we were warmly greeted and promptly seated. The waiter wear ties and are dressed welled. There was live music, which we enjoyed. We started with chips and salsa and Rubens's margaritas. The salsa is not hot spicy and compliment the corn chips nicely. the margaritas are good, not over... More

Strolled in on a recent trip to Peekskill, NY. Place was almost empty and I was concerned about the quality, but I decided to give it a try. As the saying goes, looks can be deceiving. The food was delicious and the pricing was typical. Shortly after arriving, other people began arriving and before long there were many guests, though... More
