"My mom was visiting from out of state and we wanted a nice quaint place to take her while she was here. Ruiz gave us a wonderful intimate experience. The food was absolutely delicious and great portion sizes too. The staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and super attentive to all our needs! I would recommend this place to all my close family and friends now. "

Lisa-Marie Hayenga

Florissant MO

 

"Absolutely nothing needs to be improved upon. We liked everything about our visit. The food(which is always exceptional) was particularly good Friday night. In addition to that, what we really liked is that we felt like we were at home. I apologize for not knowing the woman's name, however helped us once previously. She got the DVD player going for our 2 children. That was months ago. And she remembered us from both of our previous visits. And on our first visit, she bought my 4 year son a second plate of beans because he loved them so much he cleaned his first helping in record time. Its actions like this that cant be taught. My wife and I love Ruiz, and we feel cared for there. We pass several restaurants along to get to Ruiz, and its always worth the additional effort."

Robert Bauer

Saint Louis MO

 

"Ruiz is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I really don't know how you can make any improvements. I have tried other Mexican restaurants but always come back to Ruiz. The food has the flavor and makings of what I grew up with."

Darlene Benning

Carl Riffey

Alton IL

 

"There were 3 in our party and we all wanted the Tequila Garlic fish. My husband is a UPS driver and works late so we did not get to the restaurant till after 7 pm. We told the hostess we wanted the fish so she seated up as quickly as possible and found our server so he could get our order in immediately (because you were almost out of this disch). We really appreciated the way the entire staff took care of us. And, to top it off, THE FISH WAS AMAZING! Thank you for providing this level of service! "

Christine Gray

Megan Franks

Florissant MO

 

"We have been patrons of Ruiz Mexican Resturant since 1969, when it was only a bar with few tables and other businesses were located in the building. It is the standard by which we measure all other Mexican resturant's. We always experience excellent food and service. Just wish we had one in the St. Charles/St. Peters ares."

Pamela Harris

"I love RUIZ! The service is always TOP SHELF! The food is always HOT! I am loyal twenty-plus year customer. Thank-you for remaining a first class establisment."

"What's not to like. Food is wonderful and reasonably priced. Best maragrita in town. We're greeted as friends and service is prompt, with chips and salsa delivered while we're trying to decide from the large menu. Great job!"

Joe Pratte

Florissant MO

 

"We had family in from out of town and used the family table. The kids were entertained and could get up and walk around without disturbing othernguests while the adults were able to talk. The food is always great. "

Carolyn Long

Hazelwood MO

 

"The area for out family get together was one of your sides that is mostly enclosed, making it more private,and also the prompt attention of our server with refilling chips and drinks. As always the food was superior to other Mexican restaurants we have tried in the St. Louis Area. No one can beat your rice with the meat on top. Yum!"

Margaret Briner

Florissant MO

 

"Our group dining at Ruiz consisted of former co-workers who gather usually once a year to eat, chat and catch up on what's happening with them and their families. We choose a location that serves food that everyone likes and Ruiz certainly 'fills the bill'. We were able to comfortably wait for everyone to arrive with no pressure to order. Our server took our orders and served us in a timely manner. He returned periodically to ask if we needed refills on drinks or if he could assist us in any way. Long story short, we had a wonderful experience dining and visiting with friends on this day. Thanks Ruiz and staff!!!!"

Pamela Maxeiner

I had my usual tostadas with beans, one chile colorado and one beef, and it was great as always. Excellent food, great sauces, great service and good value. What else can I say? Ruiz rules! (we have recommended you to some friends and now they eat at Ruiz once a week, and drive from St. Peters like we do!)"

Randall Keeton

I will continue coming to your resturant as long as I have teeth to chew with. lol "
