Ruby’s Diner will celebrate its 36th Anniversary of America’s favorite burgers, fries, and shakes on December 5, 2018. Who knew that the idea for Ruby’s Diner was born after Doug Cavanaugh’s run on the beach? According to its website, Doug Cavanaugh brainstormed business opportunities with his father and remembered that he had seen a dilapidated building at the end of Balboa Pier while jogging along the beach. With his father’s encouragement, Cavanaugh made the restaurant a reality. It opened its doors on December 7th, 1982. Much to his mother’s surprise, the tiny 45-seat restaurant was named after his mother, Ruby. With only three employees and a simple menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, and malts, the restaurant brought in a whopping $63 on its first day.
