I'm ordering: Double Ruby Minis sliders (split), salad Bar
"Because I don't want to go out to a restaurant and feel deprived, I get the beef sliders, enjoy one slider with a few fries, and let my kids finish the rest. Then I'll order a steak dinner, which you can get with the salad bar (their salad bar is the reason why it’s my favorite chain!). The kids will split the steak, and I'll fill up at the salad bar. I'll choose all kinds of veggies and usually head back for seconds or thirds. By that time, I'm content to the point where dessert doesn't even sound good."
