Shopping Stop – Ruby Tuesday

Reviews by Susan’s daughters, ages 7 and 10, respectively, are a special feature of today’s post. Perhaps they can snag recurring roles on Fork You.

Hope says…

Ruby Tuesday was good.  I was really hungry and the portion they gave me did not fill me up.  I ordered penne pasta.  It was too buttery and had EVOO on it.  It had a ton of parmesan cheese on it.  It tasted good and was not mushy.  I could have eaten twice what they gave me.  The dishes looked like they were expensive.  The waitress was nice.  The restaurant was really big.  I think it had too big of lights.  I think that’s all.  THREE FORKS
