Our Story - The Journey Behind Ruby Tuesday

Our Story

Ruby Tuesday is driven by uncompromising freshness and quality, gracious hospitality, and a spark of innovation.


At Ruby Tuesday, we want to celebrate with you while delivering an outstanding meal at a great value

Our menu features signature choices like our Endless Garden Bar with more than 55 fresh ingredients, our delicious ribs with five bold flavors, and our broad selection of premium handcrafted burgers. Our restaurants are made possible by passionate employees who are driven to delight each and every guest with an excellent dining experience. It all started with the idea of fresh food in 1972 near the campus of the University of Tennessee, and 50 years later we’re still here to greet you with gracious smiles and genuine hospitality.

Quality means

Fresh means carefully-selected products to provide you with an ideal blend of our best ingredients. Quality is an uncompromising commitment to providing you a meal cooked the way you like it, with the hospitality to match.

Passion is people. People who love what they do and take your enjoyment personally.

Passion is what to expect from the people who take your order, the people who craft your meal (and peek out from the kitchen to see your delight) and the people who are designing our comfortable, stylish restaurants that are destinations in themselves. Everyone you meet here is happy you’ve come, and they’re genuinely dedicated to having you visit with us frequently.

Pride makes us a family.
This is our home.
You are our guest.

And we will attend to your dining experience with a degree of care and attention to detail unrivaled anywhere. A deep desire to serve others is the secret weapon of a gracious host. And it’s why, at Ruby Tuesday, we want you to always leave with a smile.
