Ruby Tuesday’s has been quite generous with their coupons online through their So Connected Club, through the mail as over-sized postcards that you can’t miss, and in some Sunday newspapers. Especially anticipated are those that offer a “buy one entree, get one free” or “buy one entree, get $10 off a second entree”. These coupons enable guests who have to watch their budgets be more able to afford to try some of the delicious dishes. Occasionally gift cards can be purchased with a promotion of an extra free coupon to be used by the gift giver. On Facebook you can also be informed of special offers.
Ruby Tuesday’s newest menu offering is a Sunday brunch between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. where you choose your entree from a variety of combinations. You also get homemade biscuits, a fruit yogurt parfait, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
This casual dining restaurant is determined to entice new and returning customers in as many ways as it can devise. It has recently been spending $100 million to renovate its locations, a move that was planned before the recession. The update has a more upscale look of leather and dark varnished wood and the wait staff in black shirts and pants. The managers and wait staff are specially trained to give the customers an extraordinary dining experience and make them feel like honored guests.
The food featured includes handcrafted sirloin steaks, a variety of burgers including turkey and jumbo lump crab meat ones, seafood including lobster and shrimp, salmon, baby-back ribs, chicken, pasta, and other unusual selections. There are also “Smart Eating Choices” and a children’s menu.
The drinks are made with premium-brand spirits at their full-service bar. The non-alcoholic drinks featuring fruit juices and pieces of fruit and the flavored iced teas are also served in tall glasses that make the customers feel they are drinking something special.
Their phenomenal self-serve salad bar has an eye-opening selection to choose from. It comes with some of the menu items and can be added to any entrees for a reasonable extra charge. Also offered as a meal are salads such as Salmon Spinach, Avocado Shrimp, Club House, and more.
The desserts are mouth-watering and include items such as Italian Cream Cake, Double Chocolate Cake, and a warm Blondie Brownie with ice cream.
RubyTueGo allows customers to call in a take-out order, and by the time they pull up at the curb, it is brought out to them all ready to go..
