Ruth's Chris Steak House
TripAdvisor has announced a new ranking revealing the top restaurant chains in the U.S. for 2019 based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor diners.  In this first-ever list, TripAdvisor highlights 30 restaurant chains of all types "" inclusive of fine dining, casual dining, quick service and fast casual. Honorees are organized into three categories based on the number of property locations listed on TripAdvisor: small, medium and large.

Rankings for each restaurant chain were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews from all of a chain's property locations that were listed on TripAdvisor during a 12-month period.
"Chain restaurants are integral to the American dining experience as they offer consumers convenient and satisfying meals for all occasions," said Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president for TripAdvisor Restaurants. "For the first time, TripAdvisor is ranking restaurant chains that provide exemplary food, service and value to diners. Every company featured in these rankings should be proud of the recognition they are receiving from TripAdvisor's community of millions of travelers and locals searching our site for a great place to eat."
