Ruby Tuesday's Gluten Free Menu

Plan to visit a Ruby Tuesdays in the near future?  Though this particular restaurant has long been hesitant to actually commit to anything being gluten free (or to place anything on their official website), it looks like they have finally come out with an official response when asked for a gluten free menu!

For your reference, here is the information Gluten Free Restaurants obtained regarding Ruby Tuesday’s gluten free menu; however, because foods and ingredients are constantly changing, please verify with your server prior to ordering anything off their menu:

Currently all of our fried food is prepared in soybean oil.  Our French fries are fried in the same oil as our breaded items.

Please be aware that we do serve white and wheat hamburger buns which all contain wheat flour. Our premium knot roll and rolls used for Ruby Minis are white bread, while our Golden Bun used for most burgers is a wheat bun. All are made from wheat flour.

The following menu items are acceptable for guests with a gluten intolerance or Celiac Sprue disease:

  • Steaks (with Ruby’s seasoning only)
  • Chicken Oscar
  • Chicken Fresco
  • Any burger without bread (EXCLUSIONS: turkey burgers, the onion tanglers on minis, French fries)


  • Broccoli as currently prepared
  • Mashed potatoes as currently prepared
  • Baked potato without sour cream
  • Salad bar with discretion (excludes prepared salads on the salad bar)

Acceptable salad dressings:

  • Bleu Cheese
  • Ranch
  • Lite Ranch
  • Honey
  • Mustard
  • Caesar
  • Thousand Island
  • Italian
  • French

Unfortunately, for all other food items, Ruby Tuesday, Inc. cannot provide a listing of allergens that might be present in our menu items for the following reasons:

It is always possible, as we are preparing food in over 800 restaurants every day, that one item will be substituted for another, and that the substitute product’s contents may be different from the ingredients in the products we normally use.

As food is being prepared in our restaurants, it often comes in contact with other food, so even though a specific item may not contain allergens, it could be affected by another food item that does.

As with any restaurant that serves products that contains gluten, there is always going to be a risk of ignorance or cross contamination associated with eating out.  As mentioned above, please verify with your server prior to ordering!

    What good is a gluten free menu if you cannot guarantee that a patron’s meal will not be contaminated ???

      It’s NO GOOD … and we can thank the US for that! We need government to demand stricter guidelines on GF food…just like Europe has done for years! They’re able to…why can’t our “powerful” nation!!!????!!!??

        john – Both the barley growers of america and the national wheat assoc. have powerful lobbies in d.c. The wheat lobby lost out when the law changed regarding wheat being declared on food labels but the barley growers are putting up a good fight. They have a vested interest in barley not having to be listed as an ingredient on labels. It’s really embarrassing that the U.S. is behind so many other countries on this and other food issues. Barley is now taking the place of wheat in many items (snacks like flavored chips and soup mixes to name a couple) so I feel like we’re going to have to defeat the barley growers before we’ll ever have proper gluten-free labeling here.

    I ate at a Ruby Tuesday yesterday, asked for gluten free and she handed me a menu for different allergies including gluten free. Very help full.

  3. Linda Afflick says:

    Why don’t you offer gluten free hamburger rolls. Some of the name brands are Udi’s and Three Bakers that offer high quality gluten free hamburger rolls. You offer so many choices of sandwiches and no gluten free rolls. I’m sure your customers would pay more for the roll. What is a gluten free menu without a gluten free roll?
