I think you’re right on the money. Have stopped at RT’s in both Savannah and Atlanta areas and found their service and menus very substandard to the ones we have near here. I suspect that’s due to the differing standards of their franchisees in different parts of the country.
Seemingly, you take any good/successful restaurant concept and franchise it and it will go downhill over a quick period of time–unless the original owner personally travels around to the units the way Harlan Sanders used to do in the early days of KFC. [:(][:(][:(]

The quality of Ruby’s seems to vary widely from place to place. There is one near us which is uniformly horrible, yet I have been to others where they are much better. My wife’s parents live near one in Florida, and when we visit, they like to go there. At that particular one, everything is pretty good.
You sure got lucky![:o)]
Or, SURE, you got lucky ! [8D]
I do not eat from pig troughs, be they the cold variety called salad bars or the hot variety known mostly as buffets.
You won’t go near a salad bar – don’t you think that even in the kitchen that what you might have ordered had been snotted on, dropped on the floor, picked up and resused or handled by unclean hands?[xx(] At least at a salad bar you can see the servers pouring bags of food into the containers.
If we stopped and thought about what really goes on in some restaurant kitchens we would never eat out.
You sure got lucky![:o)]
thanks for all the suggestions. Unfortunately, my hotel was switched last minute and I was no where near the Ruby Tuesdays, which made me nervous since the only place within walking distance of my hotel was a couple local townie bars that only served fried pub grub. Luckily, the boosters of the host school where I was working provided us with a nice home-made dinner and it was very nice. I did end up having a few cocktails at the townie bar before hitting the sack.
Why? They do a good job.

I hate to admit it, I liked their Sliders, a lot.
=What to get at Ruby Tuesdays=
Salad bars and buffets aren’t my favorite either….especially after I saw a kid put some dressing on his salad, put the spoon in his mouth to lick it off and then place it back into the dressing for the next victim.[xx(]
I’m sorry. I didn’t make myself clar. I’d say the same thing about any salad bar or buffet, not just Ruby Tuesdays
The salad bar is pretty good Mike, despite your comments.
I’ve had a couple of hamburgers there, and they weren’t bad. I’ve also had a steak, and it was darned good. I’ve heard that their salad bar is pretty good, but as someone who wouldn’t go anywhere near a snot-covered salad bar on a bet, I can’t say.
Their potstickers are really good for a chain.
I also like their Baby Back ribs…..
Also, the Southwestern "eg rolls" are pretty tasty ….
