Ruby Tuesday's Triple Prime Burger

I started seeing commercials for this new burger recently. *Supposedly* it's made with ground PRIME tenderloin, ribeye and sirloin and costs around $10. Just wondering if any of you may have tried it yet and if it's worth the extra money?

From their website:

Ruby's Triple Prime™ Burger
Fresh 100% USDA prime ground beef with prime tenderloin, prime ribeye and prime sirloin blended and grilled to make the finest premium burger. Garnished with garlic mayonnaise.

    As a matter of fact, I am going there tonight. I saw the new menu right after it came out.
    I will report back on my findings..And I will make sure I take my camera.

    Hmmm. I will reserve (most of) my opinion on this until roossy brings back the "pics". Worth $10? Hell no...

    Went there..
    Will make my post as soon as I get my broadband connection back, so I can post the photo.
    In the interim.
    Uh...
    Thumbs down..
    Will make a full report when I can.
    --------------------------------------
    Wednesday afternoon:
    I am still having problems with my DSL connection, but will do my review without the photo.
    Hopefully a friend will post the photo for me in the meantime.

    Ok.. The first one I ordered came out with a squished bun, and the patty was broken in three places, and the raw onion I ordered was no where to be seen.
    Spoke with the Asst mgr, and bartender, and they ordered me a new one.
    Took a very long time to get it, so I had them pack it up to go.
    Took a photo of it right away, so it would be fresh looking, and snuck a few bites in the car so it would still be warm.
    Not impressed. I have a feeling that they just gave me their regular burger meat.. It was tender, but it had a frozen, then thawed taste to it.
    I did have an in depth conversation with the Asst, while waiting and he was telling me how they are striving for FRESHNESS.
    He said all their meat for burgers are fresh, veggies, and they are soon to have their steaks hand cut on site---blah blah.
    The "Premium" green beans I ordered as a side were bland with NO seasoning, and tough. They were out of the mozzarella and tomato salad that I had wanted, and chose the beans instead. Big mistake.. shoulda got the white cheddar mashed potatoes.
    I am not sure what he was referring to when he said fresh.
    Cuz, those beans and meat didnt have a fresh taste to them.
    Maybe I just got them on an off day, maybe I should just stick to my usual items there, which are the Baby Back Ribs, and the Southwestern Sticks..
    I can honestly say that is the first time I have had anything not to my liking at RT's.
    I probably wont order another $9.49 Triple Prime burger, but I will continue to eat there.
    One more thing.
    The garlic mayo was really good, and they put it on the lettuce which was next to the bottom bun.
    I liked that as it didnt make the roll soggy.
    BUt, garnish wise, Skimpy slices of red juicy tomato, and a sliver of red onion. BUT--a HUGE piece of leaf lettuce...



    I just got a crappy burger last night I guess.

    Wife and I went there last week and both of us ordered the expensive burger. I have to admit it was very delicous and tender. Far better than most burgers.

    It was expensive though however it was very tasty. I would rather pay more for something that taste good than pay less for something that we did not care for.

    I believe lunch came to around $30.00 including tip and an extra order of onion rings.

    I'm guessing ... only guessing ... that it may be good meat, but maybe pre-frozen and maybe full of salt or other enhancers.

    What stands out to me in both pix is the near perfect "roundness" of the burger.They look machine-made.I see these kind of burgers in all the TGIF,Chilis,Ruby Tuesday,applebees type places.When you bite into them,its a gummy consistency that doesnt look like ground beef on the inside,it looks like pureed meat thats all smooth and consistent.Then somehow cookie-cuttered into a patty and,whether they admit it or not,frozen.When they put it on a grill,it develops nice grill marks but the inside and the bite gives it away.Anybody who has ever made a hamburger knows the meat has a pebbling to it,its not all uniform and smooth.
    I hate this kind of burger.Not just mildly dislike.When you bite into it,you realize youve been had.Especially after they make their big deal about "we are striving for freshness".Theres just too many good hand made burgers out there.

    Buster's in Murfreesboro will fix you a double cheeseburger for half the price. And I know which one you'll come back for.

    I'd rather have one of those Kobe-style beef burgers you can get at specialty stores and make one at home. They are awesome.

    On Poverty Pete's recommendation (and from several other roadfooders) we will enjoy a Burger lunch at LITTONs in Knoxville tomorrow noonish. I will do my best to get a good photo of what I am told is a great Burger.

    I cannot vouch for this as it has been years since I ate at Littons but it has consistently been voted the best burger in Knoxville and the desserts are very good.

    What time are you planning on being at Litton's?

    Maybe I can join you.

    Paul,
    we'll be there around noon. If I get there early, I'll either be over at the duck pond, or having a beer inside, depending on the heat index.

    Poverty, if you are riding the yellow banana, I would be careful with the beer. Get a little duck food and you will have a lot of guest at the pond. It is a pretty place. I will be there close to noon. I will be in my hot rod red Silverado.

    Looking forward to a great burger and dessert at the famous Litton's

    Guys, the heat index is going to be high, so have a cold one on me. It has been over 100 (index) everyday for the past week or so. I'm disappointed we'll miss the festivities this week.

    Oneiron, they are closed on Sunday. I think Al will post pics from today's lunch. While waiting on The Mayor and poverty, I met the govenor of the State of Tennessee. I am sure he will be re elected. He is a Demo and I am a Republican but he has done a very good job.

    I heard someone with the last name of "Kirkpatrick" was also running for gov. For some reason, I like the sound of that name...

    It's cool in WA, the heat was very bad a couple of weeks ago here, though.

    Ruby Tuesday's hamburgers are among my favourites.

    Paul, I may have to stop at that drive-in in Etowah (can't remember its name) on the way back to ATL unless you can give me a better road food place off I-40 or 75 between K-ville and N. Georgia.

    Stick with what you usually order, and dont waste your money on the Triple Prime.....
    Serious, its really not worth the extra money...

    We went here for lunch yesterday and they have "mini" burgers, perfect for me!

    While I am not sure if it is the same meat as the Prime burger, they were one of the better burgers I have had.

    I had the 2 minis and salad bar- small patties on cute little buns with pickle, mustard/ketchup, onion strings and cooked perfectly. The right amount for me and tasty too. The salad bar was very fresh as well

    I tried to order the "mini's" there one time. Said I wanted them medium rare. They said "no". I left, pronto. In thinking back, I believe that they would have cooked it to order if only the "chef" had known how to do that...

    I am a waitress and bartender at Ruby Tuesday, and I have been with the company over a year. I feel sort of obligated to clear a few things up, even though I'm only working here to get through college, like most of our staff. Our burgers, steaks, and chicken is never, ever EVER frozen. In fact, we have to order the meat 2 weeks in advance, and when we run out, we run out. The triple prime burger is the best tasting burger on the menu, however, depending on who is in the kitchen, it can come out looking like the one you received. And I apologize for that, because if you would have come to our restaurant in St. Augustine it never would have gone out like that.

    The triple prime burger (with or without cheddar) comes with lettuce, tomato, and garlic mayonnaise on a white knot bun. The reason your burger looks soggy is because of the garlic mayonnaise. Mayonnaise on a burger bun that sits for awhile will become soggy. Our restaurant typically will put the garlic mayonnaise on the side for ToGo! orders, simply because it travels better. Also, the cook is supposed to wrap the burgers in white deli paper, so the burger doesn't fall all over the bun, etc.

    I think you'll find with most restaurants that have a ToGo! service that a lot of burgers will be soggy if the condiments aren't on the side. I've gotten similar burgers at Chili's that looked like that, but still tasted great.

    I urge you to go ahead and give Ruby's another chance; perhaps a different location? Or maybe eat inside? The last we want to do is lose a customer; and I'm sure if you had called the restaurant back the manager would have give you a free meal or a couple gift cards.
