Ruth's Chris Steak House is an international chain of upscale restaurants. Various listings have placed Ruth's Chris among the best restaurants in the United States. The company runs Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in close to 70 locations, including four in Mexico and two in Taiwan. About half of the restaurants are run as franchises, and the company directly operates the others. Each restaurant has a unique decor, but all are similar in their menus, which feature corn fed Midwestern beef steaks. Though other dishes are on the menu, steaks account for almost 90 percent of sales. Ruth's Chris beef is dry aged in Chicago and then shipped twice weekly in large cuts to the restaurants. The steaks are cut into smaller portions at each restaurant, and cooked by a special process using a broiler heated to about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. This cooking method is consistent throughout the chain. The company is privately held by founder Ruth Fertel and her two sons.
