After moving to Tennessee, we thought that a country breakfast would surpass all other breakfasts we ever had- OMG- The eggs were cold, literally cold, the ham was disgusting- it was so salty that I had to go into the washroom to rinse out my mouth. The biscuits were similar to hockey pucks and the gravy was ice cold- and... More

While service is sometimes slow, I always feel it is worth my wait. Usually can get in and out within 30 minutes. Love the vegetables. And homemade desserts. Go there occasionally for breakfast. I can't imagine why someone would give this meat and three a bad review.

We tried Ruby's today. It was good, lots of good basic American menu items. They serve breakfast all hours they are open. Lunch is burgers, few other sandwiches, salads and meat and 2-3-4 veggies plates. We tried burgers (they only cook them well done, but they were cooked to order and served hot off the grill). Husband had the 1/2... More

FANTASTIC! We slide in here after church and had a great lunch. The options are plenty and the food is quality. Southern is the them but home cooked is the mission. Great service and family owned. Get the fried chicken, dumplings, mac N cheese... and the pies! We will be back!

Cornbread was hard, mac & cheese was runny, food was bland, and all food tasted as if it came premade from a grocery store. The employees were nice, but our server seemed annoyed with being there (maybe it was because she was busy, though). It was edible, but I wont be going back.

Great little meat & 3, friendly staff and a good selection including home made pies. I had the Fried Chicken and it WAS PERFECT! Golden brown outside while moist and tender on the inside...PERFECT!

Then there was two men sitting next to us vaping and blowing the smoke towards my daughter and I while were trying to eat. When I finally got my waitress attention and asked if they allow people to vape, she said "yes"! I... More

Must have came on a bad day. Worst burger I ever had. The rest of the family also had bad food. The service was not much better. I rate them a D minus!

Every Saturday morning, I meet friends here for breakfast. Have not eaten lunch here, but of all the places in Hendersonville to eat breakfast, we choose Ruby's every week. Don't understand some of the less-than-happy reviews of some of the customers, because we always get good food and service; otherwise, we would find another place to eat. Most of us... More
