Ruby Tuesday

I ate at Ruby Tuesday once, about 8 years ago. It was so awful I never went back. About 5 years ago they opened one within 2 miles of where I live but I never bothered to see if it was any better, that's how bad my first meal was. My recollection of that first experience was a bad chicken sandwich and a salad bar full of wilted and brown vegetables.

The recent Ruby Tuesday commercials have me curious about whether they have improved their food quality or have they just improved their marketing strategy?

  1. Jpan99, I think their only major change is the waitstaff now wears more "flair".

    1. At the one by us, the burgers are decent & the salad bar is OK too (no wilted greens, other veggies are fresh). The prices are reasonable as well. We have 2 small children (3-yr. old twins) & it's very close by, so we go there a few times a year with them.

      If the kids really want to go out to eat during the week, it's someplace where we can go & have a good time. Lots of other families with small children there as well. However, I would never think of going there with co-workers or with just my wife.

      1. i was recently traveling from NY to FL and was forced to eat at Ruby Tuesday as it was the only place close to the motel. I had a chicken sandwich (can't remember which one) but it was actually pretty good.

        1. Only good thing is their burgers period.

          1. I'm a big fan of their salad bar. I've never had anything else there, and I have no desire to change that.
