Ruby Tuesday Triple Prime Burger

tripleprime.jpgI had seen the television commercial for months. What could be better than a hamburger made with 100% USDA prime prime tenderloin, prime ribeye and prime sirloin? The Triple Prime Burger looks delicious on TV, but I am pretty disappointed with the real thing. It is much, much smaller than I expected, and the one I was served was slightly overcooked. For a burger made with such fine meat, I thought it would have much more flavor. Better (and less expensive) burgers are easy to find just go to almost any fast food joint.

Phoood rating: So-so

It makes little sense to take three steak meats, grind them up together, and put them in a burger. So it's no surprise that this doesn't taste that good. The best hamburger meat is about 80% lean, and it doesn't matter if the fat is marbled or not (which is why Kobe beef burgers are stupid).

Great site, Jim, thanks for bringing it back!

It seems overrated, like the commercial is trying just a little too hard. I do have to say that Ruby Tuesday's little bitty burgers are very good.

I had a Triple Prime Burger the other day and it was very delicious.. I also had it cooked medium rare. It had all the great flavor of a great steak but on a bun! Such amazing flavor that I didn't even have to use any condiments on it. I can't wait to have another..

I am rating purely on taste, Jim's comment on size is different and irrelevant to taste. As to overcooking, some people like it cooked well, that's your choice; again you can not use that as a criteria for rating their taste. It is very tasty burger; surprisingly. Ruby Tuesday's in my mind has always been crap; this burger changed my point of view.

The triple prime cheddar burger is by far the best burger I've ever tasted and I try to go to Ruby Tuesdays atleast once a week just to eat one. I never order anythingelse. The flavor is awesome, the cheddar cheese is fabulous and the combination of the mayonnaise and ketchup..I just love it!!! And even the type of bun its on is good!!

The Triple Prime Cheese Burger is the best burger I've ever had. It has ruined me for other burgers. I have to go out of my way to get to a Ruby Tuesday, but I'm always glad when I do.

Hi everyone, I am a waitress at ruby tuesday. I have people come in all the time and order the TP burgers and they are VERY satisfied. And most of them can not finish the burger. So who ever say that the burger are tiny must be obese. We also have a double burger (colossal burger).

I had my first TPB yesterday. I ordered the bacon cheddar TPB cooked to medium-rare. It was a life changing experience. Absolutely the best burger I have ever eaten. Great job RT in Branson, MO. :)

Hands down, the Triple Prime at Ruby Tuesdays is the Best Burger ever!

You have to order the burger as if you were getting a lean cut of meat, medium-rare, to medium at the most. Over than that will dry up the meat since you don't have fatty cuts in there.

Lean and flavorful
