Amazing tasting brisket and ribs but it’s a very different serving style. For the most part self serve and not fancy but a great experience. Pick your drink from a trough, salad from a cooler and load your meat in a basket. Unique but not...More

WE typically get ribs, but the pulled pork looked interesting. Was tasty with a sauce on the side, sweet and a tad tangy. Had a loaded baked potato which was perfect with the ribs. The owners were there and took pride in their food .

We visit Ruby's every time we are in the Dallas area. The restaurant is family style and you sit at picnic tables to eat. Their brisket and smoked turkey is excellent! We always bring home a bottle of their bbq sauce when we visit.
