Ruby’s Another Boulder Restaurant Burger Opportunity

rubysWhile it’s no Toms Tavern, Ruby’s at Twenty Ninth Street, is another sort of ‘classic’ restaurant.

With a lighted sign on the side of the escalator, I’m sure that the foot traffic coming up to them from the now very-busy, Century Theater is keeping them selling lots of hamburgers.

If you don’t want the 1950’s theme and want something more tropically oriented, you can walk down the 29th pedestrian mall a short distance and check out Islands for a different burger and fries experience.
