Delicious gumbo (better than homemade) . Plate lunches we had were very good. We had the shrimp stew which was well seasoned with the potato salad (some of the best) and the catfish plate-especially good. Very casual. Don't let the outside make you think this is a fancy place-very casual-lunch only.

This restaurant has been a local favorite of mine for years. Family owned with always great service and great home cooked food. Fantastic plate lunches, BBQ chicken , and gumbo served EVERY DAY! Since I'm only in town on the weekends, Sunday lunch is definitely at Ruby's. On Sunday, they have a more extensive BBQ menu with chicken (white or dark), pork steak, ribs, etc. All come with a BBQ beans and potato salad plus a great portion of rice dressing. All entrees run about $8.00/plate.

I love their gumbo, it's the best I've ever had. On Fridays they serve shrimp stew and fried catfish and it's so good.

I travelled to Lafayette for business a lot over the past 10 years and Ruby's was a favorite place for lunch; especially on Thursdays when they would have turkey wings. They are stuffed w/cajun seasonings and braised in gravy until they fall off the bone; served over rice with your choice of accompaniments and serviced with lots of iced tea. Fantastic food!
