As of last Wednesday, March 18, Ruby Tuesday has shut down and officially closed its doors for good.

This kinda saddens me because Ruby Tuesday is one of my favorite happy hour spots and places to eat. The restaurant has been in Texarkana since 2011. However if you drive up to the building now located at you will find a note on the door alerting customers that they are closed.

Despite the closing of this location, from its original location in Knoxville, Tennessee, the Ruby Tuesday chain has grown to more than 700 units in about 40 states. The restaurant was founded in 1972.
