Ruby Tuesday

In this day and age with the economic environment being what it is, average Americans have had to limit the amount of times a year they treat themselves to lunch or dinner out. Since eating out has become more of a treat than it once was, diners find themselves wanting their experience to be as enjoyable as possible while still dining within their budgetary constraints. This is why many people choose Ruby Tuesday as their dining destination.

The idea behind Ruby Tuesday was the brain child of a college student at the University of Tennessee who wanted people to experience casual dining at it's best. The first restaurant opened in 1972 and was known for it's great food, wonderful hospitality, and a relaxed atmosphere. Today, despite this restaurant being in 900 locations, and 46 states, the goal of Ruby Tuesday restaurants remain the same, to give people an almost fine dining experience in a casual dining atmosphere with casual dining prices.

The Decor

The d├ęcor of Ruby Tuesday is definitely designed for casual dining where anyone can feel at home. The restaurants are clean and bright and well lit.

Orders are taken promptly, and drinks are refilled without the need to flag down your wait person. Best of all, wait staff check back to ensure that everything is just how you ordered it.
