I eat the Creole Catch, which is Tilapia, at Ruby Tuesday's. It comes with broccoli and rice. It makes a great meal.

I am glad to hear that you had great experiences at Ruby Tuesdays. I, however, emailed them about a gluten free menu or at least options. I didnt get a good response. They said they will never give you any items that are gluten free, b/c their restaurants as a whole, will subsititue items in any dish at any time they deem necessary. They told me as items become unavailable for that day or whatever the situation might be.

Maybe someone else has heard differently? I was looking to find out if their bbq sauce was gluten free. As in their ribs are my favorite. I havent had them for such a long time :(

I alse emailed them and got the same response -their distributors vary from location to location, so they can never ensure that what you get is gluten free. (AND by the way, the email was of a rather rude tone). They made some excuse about being a large chain and I emailed then back saying that places like Outback, etc. are able to accomodate celiacs and they should reconsider their structure. I got no response. I personally am boycotting Ruby Tuesdays because of this (and so is my family).

FYI, their premade potato salad is NOT gluten free.
I learned the hard way. :(

My response was in a rather rude tone too. Like who are we to ask? Now no one in my family goes there anymore either. I said the same in my letter, that there are so many other chains jumping on the gluten free bus, maybe they would consider it too? Nope. Their loss. :angry:

Totally. Maybe after hearing from enough of us, they will figure it out - but until then, I'll just go to Chilis

I have a classmate who is a line cook at Ruby Tuesdays and he told me that I would be better off not eating there. I trust him because he has been interested in what I can and can't eat and doesn't want me to get sick.

I found out this weekend that the Ruby Tuesday's in Stroudsburg, PA has gluten free french fries every Saturday. They clean out the fryer & change the oil. My daughter had a great dinner, grilled shrimp & fries. They also have a good salad bar. I'm going to email them & see why they can't keep it like that all the time & also see if that's a chain-wide practice or just there.

I used to work at a ruby tuesdays and every ingredient/side/whatever comes prepackaged and overly processed in individual preportioned containers, so the food you're paying rediculous money for is basically just processed gunk that someone dumped out of a container and onto your plate and warmed up, or pulled out of a freezer, dropped in a fryolator and plopped it onto your plate. i wouldn't recomend going there for good food, celiac or not. i do think that they were a good company, customer service oriented, etc.... but you're getting the same processed crap that you could get in the freezer at the grocery store.

that's the end of my rant on ruby tuesdays. judging by my experience working there and at other places, you're better off going to a non chain family owned restaurant. the cooks at the chain don't mean to be rude, but they don't know what's in your food because they didn't cook it. i'd feel more comfortable asking a chef or restaurant manager questions about what they're serving when they actually made the food from scratch.
