I hope the first order of business for the new owner is to get rid of the garden bar surcharge

It's been a while since I have visited a Ruby Tuesday.  Last time they somehow were out of ribs... how can this happen?

What is that surcharge?

There's one in the parking lot of the local Walmart, it's ok, but I would rather eat at Wendy's nearby than there.

As I mentioned previously in the Ruby Tuesday thread the one in Southington, CT closed in January 2015. I never went there, so I didn't even miss it when they closed. I ate there once many years ago at the Meriden Square Mall location with a now former friend of mine. Food wasn't that great and it was expensive. $40 for two people to have lunch and neither one of us had alcoholic drinks.

I think he meant there is an extra cost to add the salad bar to a meal (where at one point it was included, if II remember correctly).

The former Ruby Tuesday location in the Century III Mall is now a Mexican restaurant
called Old Mexico.  However, the owners have purchased an old Chinese restaurant
about 3/4 mile up the road, and will be moving out of the mall once renovations
are finished.
