Ruby – great burgers out west

ruby3

A recent visit to the wonderful RAMM musuem in Exeter, saw us emerge with hungry bellies and children, we stumbled across the Ruby Modern Diner almost next door. The decor and meaty aromas certainly promised good things.

The service was friendly, excellent and quick, which is always a bonus with the little ones in tow. We ordered a selection of burgers, I went for a Piggy, a 6oz Ruby Red Hamburger topped with a really good pulled pork, and served in a perfect brioche bun. We also had a Ruby, with smoked streaky bacon and Hawkridge mature cheddar cheese. The burgers were outstanding quality, and served slightly pink, so still very moist. We had sides of fries, beef dripping thick chips, Maccaruby cheese (really cheesy and well cooked) and slaw.

The also have salt beef  and sliders which I will be back for, and some fantastic sounding hard shakes such as the “Peanut Butter Wolf” made with Chocolate ice cream, peanut butter, banana, malt & Buffalo Trace bourbon. Right up my street.

We will definitely be returning, it’s great to support indie food such as this.

    I tried The Ruby Burger and loved it. Great flavour,greasy and delicious but slightly pricey.

  2. Good review. But did you find that the burger was severely lacking in diversity due to the limited ingredients? Or, was it just a one-faceted burger?

    • Yes I had seen those reviews, but wanted to try it for myself,and glad I did, still want to do a comparison with Urban burger, it was much better than Bills burger for sure, definitely want to try the salt beef reuben.

  4. I lost my password so it has taken me almost an hour to say ‘thanks for the reco’. I went past there a week ago on my way to have lunch with a friend at Boston tea party. I shall visit ruby next time!

  5. I’m not sure about the meat-on-top-of-more-meat burgers, but the ‘peanut butter wolf’ sounds incredible! Love finding quirky little independent cafes and restaurants like this, great to read about it too.
