Ruby Tuesdays

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I wanted to let everyone know about Ruby Tuesdays. In our town, we don't have too many restaurants to choose from. I refuse to never eat out again...although I love to cook/bake, it's nice to be able to go out to eat.

I realized that with the small offering of places to eat here, I would have to take action to make sure I could A. eat out again, and B. do so safely.

With that in mind, I paid a visit to our local RTuesdays nearly a year ago and asked to speak to the Mgr. I explained about my condition and allergies (I have other food allergies as well) and told him that I would grace their doorstep several times a month if he could help me determine which foods were gluten-free and safe for me to eat.

He was *VERY* helpful and spent a good long time bringing actual labels from products so I could see for myself what I could/could not eat.

Based on what he showed me, I found the following items safe and I've not had any reaction from eating them...

(note: at our local restaurant, the chicken breasts come unmarinated..yours may be different)

Crispy Chicken Club sandwich w/bacon, swiss cheese, and mayo

-- order this with the GRILLED chicken breast. I HATE mayo so I checked and their honey mustard sauce is AOK!

Buffalo & Blue w/buffalo sauce, Mont Jack cheese, mayo

-- again, order this with GRILLED breast. Very tasty!

Burgers -- just hold the bun, watch the dressings..I've not checked ALL of them, not sure on BBQ

Grilled chicken dishes.....plain w/no sauce and no seasoning

veggies - hold the seasoning (not sure about it)

mashed spuds are ok

DO NOT eat any dipping anything from appetizer menu. ALL contain gluten. This includes the con queso dip, spinach dip and other dips. Total bummer!

Anyway, I normally just get the chicken club and bring in my own bun. With the bacon and cheese and honey mustard, it's quite good!

HTH :-)

Thats great to me. The Ruby Tuesday's near me wasn't too helpful at all. They told me they couldn't guarantee anything was gluten-free! :(

I personally would not go by this list, because each restaurant prepares their dishes in different ways. In different states they have different food prep regulations etc. If you really wish to eat there...you will have to sit down with the manager like webgyrl did...and go over each and every item. This will allow you to be more safe and lessen your chances of getting something that is bad.

Even if you do this, you risk the chance of getting a manager who has no idea what you are talking about, and just says "yep that's gluten free" :angry:

Good luck!!

I agree! I really lucked out here as the Mgr just started and was more than willing to help.

Now, we also have a Chili's here. They have a corn tortilla appetizer with chicken and such. I asked the Mgr, the cook, and the waiter (him 4 times) about the ingredients. Was given the all-clear. So, like a boob, I ordered and ate it.

We went to WMart right after and about 10 minutes after we hit the store, I was violently ill. I didn't think I would make it to the bathroom. I have to admit, it must have looked pretty funny to see a grown woman running flat-out through the store. lol.

Anyway, when we got home I called the restaurant and got that idiot mgr on the phone. I told him about my reaction and asked him how that could be since he *assured* me it was safe. He went through the ingredient listing and said it was clean. It contained soy sauce so I asked him if it said anything next to the soy sauce in parantheses. Oh...it does. :angry: WHEAT.

I really went off on him...I'll not be eating there ever again. In the end it's my fault for not being absolutely certain myself. I did tell him he needs to read ALL the ingredients when a customer has allergies or issues.

But back to topic at hand...don't go by my list. Check it for yourself to be certain :-)

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
