“If you were a cheeseburger, what kind of cheeseburger would you be?” is what Ruby Tuesday Inc. is asking America as it prepares to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day and launch its six-week Burger Road Show with an interactive online quiz. Everyone is invited to take the quiz online to find out which new regionally inspired burger best fits their personality, then share quiz results and follow the conversation online using #BurgerRoadShow. A perk of taking the quiz through September 17 includes receiving a coupon for a free cheeseburger (up to $10 value) with the purchase of one adult entrée valid on National Cheeseburger Day (September 18).

In addition to Ruby Tuesday’s National Cheeseburger Day promotion, the company is encouraging guests to take their taste buds on a tour across America. From the sunny shores of Monterey Bay to the hustle and bustle of New York City, Ruby Tuesday will bring a variety of tasty flavors from popular U.S. destinations to the family dinner table with the launch of six new regionally inspired burgers available for a limited time only. Beginning on September 19, and continuing for six weeks until October 30, one new burger will be unveiled per week from only $6.99 with endless fries. Five of the company’s existing tried and true half-pound burger baskets will also be offered each at the special price with endless fries throughout the Burger Road Show.

“We take pride in our burgers, from juicy, flavorful, fresh never-frozen beef to unique toppings and a perfectly toasted bun,” says Peter Glander, executive chef for Ruby Tuesday. “From the New York City inspired Empire Melt Burger with its incredible combination of cheeses, to the Lone Star Chili Cheeseburger topped with crispy onion rings, we had a lot of fun creating the new burgers that are a part of the Burger Road Show. We look forward to hearing what our guests think about all of them."
