Ruby’s is kind of like Coney Island in a nutshell. This counter-service spot is on the boardwalk, just a few feet from the amusement park rides and the beach. The big, bright indoor space has a giant American flag hanging from the ceiling and loud music playing from a jukebox, and the picnic tables are usually packed with people drinking beers in plastic cups while their kids eat corn dogs and funnel cakes. This can be fun, but it’s also pretty crowded, so we prefer getting a drink and something fried, then sitting at the umbrella-covered tables right on the boardwalk.
