Picture the Rat Pack - Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis Jr.
Okay, now swap out every member of the Rat Pack with a distant cousin of the original.
Frank SInatra with Bing Crosby
Dean Martin with Foster Brooks.
Peter Lawford with Peter Sellers
Sammy Davis Jr. with Harry Bellafonte
So, you now have big Vegas parties with Bing, Foster, Peter and Harry. Is that a fun group? No! That group sucks! They'd be spitting on each other in an hour.
This is all to say: I did not enjoy the Eggs Benedict from the Ruby Tuesdays brunch menu.
For the English muffin, they swapped out a mini-burger bun, lettuce and tomato.
For the Canadian bacon, they substituted a tasty hunk of steak.
For the poached eggs, there were cheesy dry scrambled eggs instead.
And they did keep a teaspoon of tasteless watery Hollandaise on top.
It tasted like ... a steak slider they put eggs on. Gary's spinach artichoke omelet was plainly the artichoke dip minus the tortilla chips, plus a floury omelet, and we both had "brunch potatoes," or steak fries chopped up.
I know it's Ruby Tuesday, it's a chain, I shouldn't expect much, but you couldn't ship in an english muffin? And how does adding lettuce and tomato to Eggs Benedict make it better?
To be fair: when the waitress asked how it was, I said it was "interesting." She popped a 25% off coupon for the next visit in with our check. I might go and eat all of their pumpernickel croutons.
