Fans can celebrate and add a half rack of world-famous Baby Back Ribs to their entree for just $5

ORLANDO, Fla. –August 26, 2015 – Romacorp, Inc., parent company of Tony Roma’s, is rolling out the “rib carpet” in celebration of Sept. 3, National Baby Back Ribs Day. From Aug. 28 – Sept. 3, fans can join in on the saucy fun at participating U.S. Tony Roma’s restaurants by adding a half rack of fall-off-the-bone, Baby Back Ribs to any entrée for only $5. Fans are also encouraged to upload a photo of themselves chowing down on Tony Roma’s world-famous ribs, using the hashtag #RibFace, until September 2nd for a chance to win a mouth-watering year of free Tony Roma’s Baby Back Ribs.

“Here at Tony Roma’s, we love to get our bibs and ribs on, so what better way to celebrate National Baby Back Ribs Day than by giving our fans the chance to enjoy the very dish that made us famous,” said Jim Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer for Romacorp, Inc., parent company of Tony Roma’s. “Last year we declared September 3rd National Baby Back Ribs Day, and we are so excited to celebrate our legendary dish with an unbeatable special.”

Tony Roma’s started the Baby Back Ribs craze in the U.S. in 1972 when Chef David Smith decided to throw ribs on the grill and add his special BBQ sauce, what is now Tony Roma’s famous Original BBQ Sauce. The combination was an instant hit and quickly became one of America’s favorite meals and a hugely iconic dish around the world.

“Tender, pork loin meat basted with Tony Roma’s Original BBQ Sauce is a classic taste that makes your taste buds cheer the moment these fall-off-the-bone ribs leave our kitchen and arrive at your table,” said Chef Bob Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Culinary for Romacorp, Inc. “The celebration of National Baby Back Ribs Day is a party nobody should miss.”
