The Golden Dish has reviewed Ruski’s.
The burgers were textbook good. They were perfectly grilled to medium rare and had the essential outer charred crust that gives the beef so much texture and flavor. The restaurant has many cooks, and that night Will was in the kitchen and did his job very well. For $8.95 you get a half pound burger on a big hefty roll with a mound of fries. Cocktails like premium vodka on the rocks are $6.50, and beers are often on special from $2.50 for PBR to premium drafts at $3.75. With tax, tip and drinks the $20 each spent on dinner was a satisfyingly cut-rate night on the town worth repeating many times over.
