TOLEDO, Ohio — If you're looking for some good, southern-style cooking, look no further than Ruby's Kitchen.
"Catfish, the peach cobbler, sweet potato cheesecake is awesome. The chicken and dressing on Sunday is great," said Ruby's great nephew, Jarell Drake.
"My favorite is the banana pudding and they only have that on Sundays. And the cornbread dressing, which they only have on Sundays," said family friend, Darryl Conley.
Located on Reynolds Road near Dorr Street, the restaurant has been serving customers for 20 years.
Some of them coming for almost as long as it's been open.
"I've never had a bad experience, she treats me like a son. So I feel comfortable with coming here and that's why I keep coming," said loyal customer, Steven Parker.
For Ruby's family, this restaurant is a legacy.
"My aunt Ruby started this restaurant with nothing. She's been having this dream since she was 12 years old," said Drake.
And it's that work ethic that's been passed down to the family members who operate the business.
They pride themselves on being able to offer a family atmosphere that's made even better by the food.
"On Sundays, you can expect all the preachers to be in here eating. They're just laughing and having a good time and bringing their families in," said Drake. "Our family is able to give their family a great meal."
Even though the restaurant is only open four days a week, it hasn't deterred the number of customers.
"I run a barbershop over here in the library plaza, she used to be next door. So I was there every day. Even though she's around the corner now, I'm still here" said Parker.
From the ribs to the pigs' feet, Ruby's family says there's something for the whole family to enjoy.
"The food, I know is made with love. Two decades, it speaks for itself, I'm very proud of them," Conley said.
