A perfect table setting requires pristine linens and polished cutlery, except at off-Broadway restaurants where waiters set every table in postapocalyptic Vienna. Avoid avant-garde eating with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, steaks, and American fare at Ruby Tuesday. This Groupon is valid at three San Antonio locations on U.S. Highway 281 North and Evans, Interstate Highway 10 and Wurzbach, and 1604 and Culebra in Alamo Ranch.
Ruby Tuesday’s flavor maestros sizzle up a classic lineup of American fare, composing a menu of meaty entrees, New Orleans–style seafood, fresh salad offerings at a garden bar, and USDA Choice burgers that have never seen the inside of a freezer. A four-way sampler runs the appetizer gamut with crispy chicken strips, fire wings, southwestern spring rolls, and fried mozzarella ($11.99) before a handcrafted Boston Blue burger ($10.99) inundates taste buds with blue-cheese crumbles, crispy onion rings, Boston barbecue sauce, and sautéed treatises decrying taxation without representation. Soused in tangy barbecue sauce, slow-cooked baby back ribs ($12.99) slide right off the bone at the mere mention of a fork, and fit and trim dishes, such as the signature barbecue grilled chicken ($10.99), sport deliciously pared-down caloric profiles. Otherwise, the chef's cut sirloin ($14.99) sharpens incisors alongside made-from-scratch garlic cheese biscuits and two sides, making for a more flavorsome lineup of characters than Les Misérables with an all-gummy-bear cast. Ruby Tuesday encourages diners to revel in American nostalgia with classic grill provisions served amid wooden accents and TVs broadcasting football games via satellite. Guests can also log on to free WiFi hot spots to check in with fellow diners or live stream a xylophone solo by baby back ribs.
Ruby Tuesday opened near the University of Tennessee in 1972, and now has about 800 restaurants across the United States and the world. Customers select dishes from a menu filled with favorites such as smoky mountain chicken and petite sirloin & coconut-crusted shrimp. $5 premium cocktails all day, everyday headline an ample drink menu complete with craft beer and frozen drinks. Ruby Tuesday prepares and dishes out food of the utmost freshness and quality. Passionate staffers make it their business to make sure each and every guest leaves having had an excellent dining experience.
