A new Ruby Tuesday dessert that is sure to get your attention is The Chocolate Fall Cake ($7.99), an eye-catching, mouth-watering treat featuring chocolate cake layered with chocolate mousse, which is topped with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, whipped cream and Oreo cookie pieces.
“It’s in a goblet and on a rectangle plate so it’s designed to look like the glass fell over on its side, and the cake looks like it’s spilling out,” adds Eddie Arnold, director of operations. “It’s one of those dishes where when you walk by, you’re like, ‘What’s that?'”
Famous for its ribs and Garden Bar, Ruby Tuesday serves classic American food, including burgers, sandwiches, pasta, seafood, fish, chicken, pork chops and steaks. The company started in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1972 and has since grown to about 700 restaurants worldwide. The first Ruby Tuesday Hawaii opened in Mililani in 2004, followed by restaurants in Windward Mall, Moanalua, Kapolei and Maui.
“Our ribs are definitely our signature item that we’re best known for, except for maybe our Garden Bar,” says Arnold. “The ribs are slow-roasted for hours, so it’s very tender and super flavorful, and just falls off the bone.”
The Full-Rack Baby-Back Ribs ($26.49) comes in four flavors, Classic Barbecue, Texas Dusted, Cajun Honey or Mango Kiawe; and is served with your choice of two sides: fresh grilled zucchini, fresh steamed broccoli, rice pilaf, onion rings, fresh green beans, mashed potatoes, french fries or fresh baked potato.
