When you think of delivery, you usually think of pizza, Chinese food or ordering food off of Postmates or Uber Eats. Well, now you can think of the Red Ring Bar and Grille.
For a limited time, Duquesne University’s Red Ring Bar and Grille will be delivering food to residence halls.
Currently, the Red Ring is open Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It is Duquesne’s only sit-down restaurant.
The idea was created to provide an opportunity to make the Red Ring menu more convenient to Duquesne resident students.
Dave Manz, the resident district manager for Parkhurst Dining at Duquesne, said, “We planned the delivery concept as an LTO (limited time offer) for the month of February. Delivery has been such a success already that we are considering continuing it all semester.”
Delivery from the Red Ring is available Mondays through Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“Our goal is to build engagement and to make the Red Ring more relevant to daily student life at Duquesne University,” Manz said.
The Red Ring accepts FLEX, PLUS and credit cards for dine-in and take-out.
“The Red Ring offers delicious food and a fun, great atmosphere. Our talented chefs rotate menu items seasonally and continually incorporate new and exciting dishes that bring a unique experience to college dining,” according to Manz.
Popular items at the restaurant are the Farmer Burger, a house-made Meatball Sub and mozzerella sticks.
Additionally, this promotion is just another way that the Red Ring is looking to connect with students on campus.
“We partner with organizations such as DPC (Duquesne Program Council) to host trivia nights, as well as fundraising opportunities. We’re always looking for new ways to partner with student organizations and campus departments to host fun activities at the Red Ring that will enhance the experience of eating on campus,” Manz said.
Students interested in delivery can call 412-396-3550 to place their order, and the Red Ring will deliver the food to the lobby of the residence hall in which the student resides. Orders must be paid in full prior to delivery.
