    We are going to Ruth's Chris tonight to spend a gift certificate that expires in a week :)pissed: ). But my irritation over that little detail can be vented elsewhere.


    Anyhoo, other than the obvious steaks, what do y'all order there? What salad is good, or seafood? I like steak OK, but would probably order something else that is lighter. I remember a discussion about this place, but couldn't find it. So you Ruth's Chris people, please give me the scoop! Thanks!

    I have been to probably four different Ruth's Chris. As you probably know, everything is a la carte. If you order a side, split one with your significant other. The lyonaisse potatos are pretty good. Of all the different steaks they do, I prefer the strip. The lettuce wedge with bleu cheese is my favorite salad they do, but they're all good.

    Sorry, but I don't have any experience with other entrees. It is, after all, a streak house. When in Rome......

    Alright you guys--- T minus 3 hours 'til cow time. Nobody has any other favorites at Rufus Chris' Steakhouse (that's what Kate is calling it)? I guess JB is right- when in Rome, eat a steak swimming in a butter pool! I am a butter addict- maybe they can just bring me the pool of butter and a straw.:blink:


    The bad news is my almost 6', 165 lb. son will be with us. He could eat 3 steaks. Maybe I will nibble off of his. Bdarg will be guarding his own plate like a pit bull. I looked at the menu and there are some garlicky shrimp that sound up my ally. A friend mentioned a chopped salad. :dunno:

    I WILL be having the creme brulee!:clap_1:

    I am ill. Just got off the phone with Peapod, which kept me distracted through my groaning stomach. I may be over the worst of it. BBQ shrimp (best part of the meal- the bread soaked in the sauce was way YUM!), caesar salad, lamb chops, halibut, steak, fries (kids were with us), and CREME BRULEE!!!!!! Our children were great and lovely company- no nosepicking at the table or anything!:D

    BUT- it was an evening of "Jdarg, this is your life!" It is prom season, so lots of prom dates there for dinner. Then, I ran into MY senior prom date, we laughed, yada yada. As we were leaving, ran into my 9th grade prom date. At that point, I hauled a$$ outta there- it was only going downhill. My son probably thinks I dated half of Louisville!:eek:

    :floor: :floor: No thank goodness, considering we are all old enough to have kids old enough to go to proms!

    Actually, my senior prom date was a good friend, and he married a really cool gal- have always liked the both of them. My 9th grade prom date was a guy I grew up with, and the only boy in school taller than me. We still have lots of blackmail stories about each other. He wore a baby blue tux to prom- I about died, even in the 70's.:blink:

    No,No, it could have been worse. I love JB....but his earlier post mentioned that Ruth Cris was a "streak place". Then there was the reference to "when in Rome". I just had these visions of the little dargs sitting by with :eek: on their faces. Meanwhile you and bdarg.......well, you get my drift! :shock:

    Well, some of the prom dresses were pretty darn close to naked, so I guess it could be a "streak" place! Bdarg and I were not streaking- we were too busy smearing our faces with butter and sauces.

    I am giving up for the night- I am "butter drunk" and must lie down....you ladies carry on the funn and post some great reading material for the a.m.!!!

    Well, I had already deleted my post, as I noted after she astutely pointed out my typo. Sigh.

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    A Tulane alum owns the Ruth's Chris in Atlanta, and Tulane alumni Mardi Gras parties have been held there. He always serves NOLA food as well as steaks, so that's great when you're in Atlanta and missing NOLA. A lot of the flavor depends on the items being covered in butter BTW. :yikes: If I had caught you earlier, jdarg, I would have told you to ask for no butter. The food is pretty good, but you get a month's worth of fat grams in one meal.

    Sorry - drive-by post. The prom date story is hilarious. :floor:
