Was glad we got a rumas out here but won't be back. They won't even give you a cup for water. If they are that hard up they don't need my business. Must be alot of money for water. Well we got subway and pomodoro's.

I assume you're referring to the one in Imperial. I've never been there but the one in Lemay has become a hole. I have to wonder if Dee Ruma sold the business to a cheap owner. It appears that way.

yep. went once when it opened, haven't been back. overpriced with skimpy portions and owners who yell at you when you complain do not make for a happy customer.

They charge for water because there is no water line on the soda machine, i guess they should just hand out free bottled water to everyone that wants one?? Ive gotten free water there before you just have to fill it up in the sink in the bathroom. Ive personally seen people walk into a place like this or taco bell and ask for free water then fill a cup with soda. In case you havent noticed in todays economy people will do ANYTHING to save a buck, so kudos Rumas man for not giving away something you paid for, oh and i guess the cups lids and straws you want are free to the owners also?? Get a job!!

No Dee Ruma is a friend of my parents and from what i hear she is very proud of Brock Ruma the owner who is just like her, He doesnt take crap from anyone, thats how she raised him. Obviously none of you people have a job in retail, i do and let me tell you EVERY DAY i get some jerk trying to get something free or discounted, i wish i could tell some of these people off without getting fired. My hats off to Brock who is a stand up guy, loves his kids and doesnt take anything from anyone. Just wish i could do the same. I think thats part of all these people complainings problem, as a society they are spoiled like little children and if they cry and whine enough they get what they want. As far as a hole, well its been there almost 40 years and i know the landlord will not help remodel so ive seen the improvements mr.Ruma has made out of his own pocket and i guarantee you probably just went in after or during a dinner or lunch rush

The last I had Rumas it was the one in McKenzie plaza on Watson Road in Shrewsbury. It was awful. Store was dirty and I think the problem is that the Ruma family started franchising out the locations. It's a shame because back in the day Rumas was awesome

"Obviously none of you people have a job in retail, i do and let me tell you EVERY DAY i get some jerk trying to get something free or discounted, i wish i could tell some of these people off without getting fired."

Actually when I was younger I specialized in turning around loosing KFCs. I know customers can be a pain. But you need them.

"As far as a hole, well its been there almost 40 years and i know the landlord will not help remodel so ive seen the improvements mr.Ruma has made out of his own pocket and i guarantee you probably just went in after or during a dinner or lunch rush"

No actually I went in shortly after their opening at 11:00 AM.(My normal lunch time.) It looked as if the dining area wasn't cleaned from the night before.(Maybe longer.) I can understand older fixtures but there's NO excuse for filth.

My biggest complaint was the food quantity and quality.(I got mine to go.) In the restaurant business food is one of the least expensive parts of the business. Cheaping out on the product is cutting your own throat.

I can understand you wanting to defend your Mom's friend but it won't change my opinion of Ruma's. Given the lack of cars in Ruma's lot and what I've seen at Bellacino's, I expect that many hold the same opinion as me.

"It was brand new and dirty LOL"
The Ruma's on Lemay Ferry has been there for many years.

"Your a liar or friend of Brock's"
Neither. Just a former customer who's moved on.
