“RT is Good, not Great...Cleanliness Issues!”
Review of Ruby Tuesday

Ruby Tuesday
Ranked #67 of 92 Restaurants in Warrenton
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Ruby Tuesday is a solid business class chain restaurant with a central bar area, with tables and boothes arranged in aisles around the bar. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon after the lunch time had passed, but had some difficulty following their signs from the Rt 17 bypass in to town.

The RT location in Warrenton, Virginia, is a bit hard to spot from the roadway....by turning south on to Blackwell Road, and looking across from the well signed Hampton Inn, the RT is easier to see on the right.....then turn right from Blackwell into their RT parking lot. Good parking but the parking lot was littered with trash. Maybe they need someone to do some outside maintenance!

Inside we were greeted by the sounds of soft rock and classic rock muzak, which was continual and somewhat loud throughout our afternoon visit. Not as relaxing nor romantic a sound as we would have enjoyed. Maybe others did.

Both the menues are new at RT for both their appetizers and desserts menu (8/2014) and the main entree menu (5/2014) ... which offered a good variety of RT's signature dishes ... several of which actually were new. As with most new menues, there were new, higher prices, too, which makes RT a less sttractive food value for travelers on fixed income, like us. So, we simply settled on their old dependable RT soup and garden salad bar at $9.99 and water to drink. Taco soup was tasty and had a bit of kick to it, as appropriate for this dish. Commendations for good fresh garden salad bar offerings but several dishes were running low....croutons were just about gone!

A structural problem was that all the chairs at the table at which we were seated were wobbly. The men's restroom was pretty dirty....paper towels overflowing and left on counter. Lots of handprints on door handle...had to look for a place to pull it open (used paper towel to do so). Salt and pepper shakers had visible handprints and food flecked greasiness on them from previous diners....they really needed to be wiped off and sanitzed in between customers.

Overall it was a very average dining experience at this RT.

On our travels going home to Virginia from Goshen, IN. we stopped at this restaurant as we always love the salad bar. It was in a very busy location. We were seated and waited on promptly. I ordered the salmon, side and salad bar while my husband ordered chicken fingers with salad bar. The food was good and service good. However, some of the booth seats were split and had tape on them and the base boards were in bad shape. I would have given it a four because of the food and service but the place needed repair so it reduced the rating to three. However, if traveling through again would eat here as it was clean.

Big surprise, not the finest Culinary experience but it wasn't accompanied by a 100 bill either. Wife had the California flat bread. Interesting flavor. Lot of lemon and the avocados made the meal. I had the salmon with grilled zucchini. Salmon was well done but still decent and the zucchini was fresh and good. The salad bar was ok except the pre bagged lettuce and greens. I am pressing they were bagged because they were pretty lifeless. This is a comment for all ruby Tuesdays frankly just happen to be eating here. Service was prompt and capable for a Friday night. Good for an inexpensive decent meal if you want a road menu!
