The menu follows a Southern-fried meat-and-three concept, meaning diners order a meat, plus three sides. Those will include Ruthie’s mac and cheese, of course, but also white-soy-braised greens, stewed chickpeas and smoked cauliflower with a spicy soy glaze. “We’re going to be changing it a lot based on seasonality,” Hill says of the menu. “ Every vegetable has got to be fantastic because it has to stand on its own.” One thing that will help that: Hill is already growing all of the restaurant’s own herbs at his South Arlington community garden plot.

    Always a good place for a simple meal. Parking is a bear though. Will return.

    Arrived 1150am for a 12noon reservation, wasn't seated until 1210pm. Had an outdoor table, which isn't very picturesque if near the parking lot. The waiter was "okay", but not very fast and would go long stretches without seeing them. My entree came with fruit but I'm allergic to strawberries, so I asked for another side. Got the fruit anyway but luckily it was in a bowl. The food is always great, but the service is hit or miss and they could beautify the patio along the parking lot with some visual barriers and/or plants.

    Very nice setting with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. Plenty of food options and everything we had was good. Drinks are reasonably priced and tasty. Overall value of the meal is excellent based on the quality and quantity of what they put out. My wife and daughter both had to go boxes with multiple meals left over. We will definitely be back.

    We had a wonderful experience at Ruthie’s All-Day. Everything we ate was delicious! The skillet cornbread, deviled eggs, crispy smoked wings, smoked brisket, crispy Brussels with fish sauce vinaigrette, and Mac and cheese were fan favorites at our table.
