Went here for breakfast a couple of weeks ago for the first time and absolutely LOVE the breakfast burritos. Tortillas are fresh and the burritos are stuffed with a variety of fillings. I had the chorizo & egg burrito. The thing I love about the burritos is that they automatically come with beans & cheese - which they are NOT stingy about. You get generous portions of everything. All of that was for $4 and that's including tax. Well worth it.

For all of you that don't like poor service I would not recommend going here. Management was rude and food was not all that great. Paying 12 dollars for four tacos, u would think it would be amazing tacos but no, it tasted like something I could make at home. To the owner , train ur staff a better, they have no manners what so ever.

The hand rolled tortillas at Ruthy's are the best. Ruthy's has become a Sunday morning custom for our family. The wait staff are kind. The manager is great. The food tastes wonderful.

Don't let your first look at the place cause you to dismiss it. Walk in and sample the fair. It's delicious.

I love Ruthie's. The food is great. It is the favorite between me and my friends on Saturday mornings for their big, full, tacos. Everyone should eat here. Despite the decor, or outside appearance, you will leave satisfied. I promise!

Read my review here: http://www.mcglinch.com/blog/

Ever have a meal that puts you in that proper happy place? On my recent trip to San Antonio for the NCAA Regionals at the AlamoDome, my family stayed with my brother and his family. The first morning after arriving I awoke with a kink in my neck from a restless night in a strange bed. My physical therapist sister-in-law did wonders working some of it out but it continued to nag me for the next day or two. Then one morning, the adults, after feeding the kids their fill of chocolate chip pancakes and cereal, left the 13-year-olds in the hands of the 10 and 11 year olds and headed to a local home-spun Mexican diner, Ruthie's.

On my first trip to San Antonio, 14 years ago with my best friend and very pregnant wife, we had a breakfast on the famed River Walk that involved eggs mixed up with Mexican bacon, blue corn tortilla chips, refried beans, salsa and served with fresh hot tortillas. That restaurant was gone on subsequent returns and I've been trying to find an equal to that breakfast ever since.

I found it at Ruthie's. Ruthie's appears much like any small roadside diner/kitchen type place. According to my brother there's a Mexican style eatery like it on every block. They had The Price Is Right playing on a static'y TV up on the wall and menu's were the requisite laminated paper style but with a full listing of items en Espanol that even my seasoned San Antonioan brother and sister-in-law couldn't identify for me.

Rather than play a guessing game or play it safe, I asked the waitress if she could tell me what I wanted based on my description. I laid it out for her in all its glory and she said, you want the 'Chilaquiles'. I've seen them described as something other than what I had but what I had was lovely.

Enjoying that full breakfast made me stop at one point and lower my cheek to the dish and cradling it with my arms, I said, "I want to love it."

The best part of the meal was that when it was all done, that kink in my neck was all gone -- replaced with the satisfaction in my stomach.

This place has good mexican food that's pretty traditional Tex-mex and can be a little heavy but you get alot for the $$. One of my favorite items here is the pancakes. They are fluffy and crisp around the edges... scrumptious and very inexpensive. You shouldn't have to pay $8 for a couple of pancakes.

PROS: very reasonable, family friendly, very casual
CONS: nothing fancy
