Ruby Tuesday’s Lobster Mac & Cheese

I know what you’re thinking… How can a cookie cutter
restaurant make a Mac and Cheese worth reviewing… That’s until you hear about
Ruby Tuesday’s Lobster Macaroni and Cheese.

Lobster? I’ve heard of many mixed meats with M&C and
really hadn’t thought much about lobster being a viable choice. Probably
because lobster is pretty expensive and who wants to cover up the tastiness of
lobster? Well my friend, I’ve got the place for you.

First up, there’s a staggering ticket price $11.99… (14.99
w/salad bar) I’m thinking, another big name charging big prices for something
of nothing. That’s until you see in your dish of mac, several huge chunks of lobster
claw meat. There were actually two huge complete claws making this “indulgence”
worthy.

So let’s get down to the nuts and bolts… Ruby’s makes a
M&C that’s basic, yet exceeds what one expect from mixing the basics – elbow
macaroni, shredded cheddar, Swiss, and parmesan cheese.  Basic Right? No. I’ve tried this at home and
failed… but here’s where the rubber hits the road… not only do you get huge chunks
of lobster claw meat, you get quality
cheeses
. Sounds simple, and yet it’s rarely done. Quality cheeses are
absolutely necessary if you’re going to blend and meld cheeses without ‘em
turning to glue.

BTW – ordering a side dish of M&C, minus the lobster,
comes free as a side and the portion is the same no matter how or what it’s
ordered with…

    Wow…I just had this today for the first time. Ummmmmmmm….the portion was so small, it was gone in 5 bites. Definitely not a dinner portion…not even a lunch portion. Our shrimp fondue appetizer was larger than this dish!!! Not worth the money!

    Agree with Susan, I laughed when they brought the plate to our table, it was so small. They could easily at least put in more mac n cheese to make it a larger portion. The lobster meat was all claw, no tail meat that I could find and the mac n cheese was very basic, nothing special. Don’t waste your money
