We just moved to the area and friends recommended Ruiz. The staff is friendly and helpful. Whenever we have gone the wait was minimal. The food is delicious,hot and flavorful. I particularly like the chicken chimichanga with guacamole and sour cream. You need to try this place. It great for families, girls night, business lunches etc.

The service is average...nothing to write about. The salsa is very bland....not homemade...rather, something they got from a jar. The chips are the same way...from a bag, not homemade like most Mexican places. The fajitas on the other hand were excellent, as were the margaritas.

Always enjoy eating at Ruiz. Margaritas are very good and I especially enjoy the fish taco. Service is good and would recommend this restaurant to all.

I don't know about "authentic", but well seasoned, served promptly and hot with lots of flavor make me a fan of this fabulous old timer in Florissant, MO. Since returning from San Antonio some 9 years ago, twice we tried to dine at Ruiz, and the waits were interminable. We went there for lunch on a Saturday and basically had the restaurant to ourselves.

The chips are fresh, not greasy and properly salted. The "free" salsa were super. I have been so disappointed in Mexican restaurants who only add heat, and no flavors, the tomato based was chunky and had other fresh veggies. The Verde, may have had a touch to much vinegar, but was good.

I had a "build your own plate" and the spinach empanada was as good as it gets. The problem is there are too many tasty looking items to make an easy decision.

The service was way above average, and the server very pleasant.

Definitely going back for more and more and more!

There is a very good reason Ruiz has been operating for over 40 years. Value, great food, and consistantly friendly you can't go wrong. Try their Cadillac Margarita!! Recommend the Macho platter to get a sample of many items they have on their massive menu.
