From their website:I’ve never understood the name. Can someone explain it to me?
We have one near us but have never gone. If my husband and I get a date night we always go to Pappadeaux.
From their website:
"Over four decades ago, Ruth Fertel, a divorced mother of two, mortgaged her home for $22,000 to buy a small 60-seat restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana named Chris Steak House. Shortly thereafter, a fire forced her to change the original location and she renamed the restaurant, “Ruth’s Chris Steak House.”
Yeah, we went once. Found them to be way overpriced even though the food and service were top notch.I'll pass... after charging $20-40+ for a mediocre steak, they have the gall to charge you $7 for a baked potatoe. Save your money and go to a decent local place instead.
We've only been once to the one in our city and due to some unforeseen circumstances, the service turned out to be really, really awful. So awful in fact I wish now we'd have pressed to have the bill comped instead of just going away mad like we did.
Another thing is that with wine it's a $200 night here so even if it had been amazing it would not be someplace we went regularly. They use USDA beef, which they import and frankly, local Alberta-raised is superior to our taste.
