Ruby's Diner 


Bringing it back to the 1940's charm, Ruby's Diner is a perfect combination of those retro vibes with the cool beachy atmosphere. Situated at the end of Balboa Pier, you'll come for the view, but stay for the food. Perch yourself on the rooftop patio or opt to take the food to go and sit on a bench on the Pier. You can't beat the view at this incredibly unique location. Watch the local fishermen cast their lines, and keep an eye out for dolphins and whales as they sometimes swim close to the pier! 

With multiple burger menu options, you'll be extremely happy with any of them, but if you're digging a spicy adventure you've got to try the Sriracha Burger. This burger has more than enough - start with a half pound USDA choice beef and add melted Pepper Jack cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, jalapenos, and Sriracha mayo all topped with Sriracha hot chili sauce. If you still have room for more, cool your mouth down with one of Ruby's famous milkshakes. Where else can you have a truly oceanfront dining experience without burning a hole in your pocket.
