I usually find a good meal at Ryan's Family Steak house. I've been to several in Texas and Georgia and Tennessee. Our adventure started when we arrived. This is evidently one of the older Ryans, they still have the cafeteria style take a tray down the line style of taking your order for a drink and to tell them you want the bar. Longest wait in history for a Ryans. We found the staff to be slow and unusually inept at moving the line along. When we walked away from the cash register we noticed what looked like food crumbs spread around the floor. Large grease splotches going into the double door they were bringing the food from. The carpets looked dirty and moldy. We sat down straight from the entrance doors, right beside some art that had pictures of European breads on it. After we had been there for a minute my wife said you're not gonna like what I just saw. There was a roach on the wall crawling to get under the picture. A few minutes later there was another one. We tried to finish our meal, but we just got up and left. Do yourself a favor and try somewhere else in Murfreesboro.

My wife and I ate there on 2/1/2007. We went to this Ryan's as it is close to our house and now advertise steak on the buffet. We went for the steak. It is not like other Ryan's or similiar places that have a grill where you request a steak. The steak is brought from the kitchen to the buffet area where it is served to you. They did not have any steak when we arrived and the only steak that was brought out was rare. I don't like meat that still moo's. We complained to a manager who said they are unable to keep up with demand. This was a Thursday and they were not that busy. This Ryan's either needs to be remodeled or knocked down and rebuilt. There are better Ryan's in the Chattanooga area. We will not be back to this one.
