Question What's your favourite American chain restaurant ??

The title says it all, though I use the term restaurant loosely.

Chevy's (Tex/Mex) for me

I like the cheapo diner type places like Dennys or Village Inn. Not usually for dinner though, more of a breakfast/brunch kinda times.

Thumbs up Re: What's your favourite American chain restaurant ??

Gotta be Denny's for their most gorgeous 'All-American Grand Slam' Brekkie, (hash browns, not grits though)!

Never tried anything else there as we don't go out to eat often enough.

First time I went to denny's i got a lumberjack breakfast - it came on 3 plates and I nearly passed out.
Like their breakfasts except that I don't eat eggs and pretty much everything comes with some type of egg

I reckon chains can vary wildly...this Chili's is a goodie but I'd say Denny's and places like Golden Corral sell utter crap and lots of it :scared: then again it may just be the particular restaurants I've been too....actually for cheap healthy eats I like Souper Salad( lunch only )....Benigans is okay too...nothing special but edible

Default Re: What's your favourite American chain restaurant ??

Applebee's is the best I've tried so far. Didn't like Chilli's or The Outback. Golden Corral is OK for buffet food. I suppose a lot depends on the branch you go to - whether there's good management etc.

I've no idea what Golden Corale even is (seafood by any chance) and haven't tried outback yet though I'd like to - fancy one of those onion things.

Oh, and Max and Erma's - i like them too
