Rutter's is also introducing pork wings, which consist of more than five ounces of "tender, juicy, fall-off-the bone" pork in each serving. Rutter's fries and then seasons each order with the customer's choice of flavors--plain or dipped in spicy hot sauce, buffalo or with Sweet Baby Ray's Original Barbecue Sauce.

Another addition to the Rutter's menu is the Taco Dog. Customers can customize each taco dog, which is prepared on the roller grill, to their exact taste including the roll on which it's served; customers can choose a hot dog roll or a soft taco shell. They can also add cheese, black bean salsa or any of the options on Rutter's list of fresh toppings to each order.
