Ruby Tuesday isn’t super vegan friendly, but they do have some decent sides to choose from, and an unlimited salad bar (buffet).
They don’t have many salad dressings that are vegan to choose from though. In fact, most locations only have one vegan salad dressing: Balsamic Vinaigrette. So if you aren’t into balsamic vinaigrette on your salad then make sure to check that they have others before you opt to get the unlimited salad bar.

Their vegetable options include even more “strange” or “rare” things such a cauliflower and broccoli, so their vegetable options include pretty much everything you might find in a grocery store that’s a vegetable. They also have fruits like tomatoes.
Be careful with their crackers though, they usually are not vegan. Look up the brand if you want to make sure they’re vegan, as not all saltines are vegan (some contain whey).
