I was just wondering, among all UD-ers, what is y'alls favorite Restaurant Chain? For example; I like:

1. Red Lobster
1. Olive Garden
2. Chili's
3. The Cheesecake Factory
4. Joe's Crabbe Shack

I dont know if everywhere has these, but what are some of your favorites? Friday's? AppleBee's? Denny's? Hooters?

For a more complete list see Wikipdia: List of Restaurant Chains

1. Leona's - there's one right by my house. They have deeeelicious vegan burgers and homemade fries.
2. Potbelly's - they have simple toasted pb&j. Very messy.
3. Manchu Wok - not the greatest, but sometimes they have fried rice with no egg, meat, and barely any vegetables. 8)

Ayep. That's about it for me.

Legal Seafoods. Affordable and delicious seafood.

I also like Blue Ginger (Ming Tsai) in Wellesley MASS.

Sadly, we don't have Red Lobster in PR; :evil: but I went to one in PA and I LOVED IT!!!!

So that would be my first choice.

Second...Ponderosa.

Oh yeah, I love that place too. I went there to eat a couple of days, and the food there is really good, plus not that expensive. Its a good deal if considering the quality of the foods. Beast the disgusting onion soup I had at TGI Fridays anyday.

I don't know, but it's my 2nd favorite. Wendy's would be my 2nd but I have to drive over an hour, always out of my way-what way I'm going, to get to one.

Cheesecake Factory- has some kind of peanut thai pasta thingy that is SO GOOD
Houlihan's- has great stuffed chicken breast and mashed potatoes!
Outback - love the Walhalla Pasta (even if it isn't on the menu anymore they'll still make it for you!!)
Rainforest Cafe - they don't have my fav dish anymore but I prob would vote for this one just because of the atmosphere 8)
Bravo! - great Italian food with wonderful atmosphere- a big step above Olive Garden!
and finally... Bailey's Pub- has the BEST drinks I've ever had at a chain!


If I could pick my least favorite restaurant it would be Red Lobster, hands down. So many people put it as a fav- I don't get it. It's my grandma's favorite restaurant too!!
It's the only place I refuse to walk into anymore. Despite the bad food and service, I just can't understand that a restaurant called Red Lobster doesn't serve fresh lobster... :?

I would suspect that some of you people like it since its affordable

Another knock at our monthly income there, Alan?

Anyways, my top five:

1. The Olive Garden. My personal favorite, and I make it a big deal with my family that we go there every June 7 (my birthday). As Lois said, "Me likey breadsticks, me likey breadsticks!" I like to try out different things there, because frankly, I can have chicken fingers anytime, so the last time I went there, I got this Seafood Medley thing, with mussels, scallops, and shrimp over pasta with garlic butter sauce. But my all-time favorite from OG is their lasagna. And the pasta fagioli soup.

2. Ohana. It's this wonderful buffet at the Polynesian Resort at WDW. Rather than go up and get the food, they just continually bring it to you. God, the food is heavenly, and their Hawaiian bread is to die for! And it's a lot of fun to see the coconut races with the kids.

3. Chick-fil-A. Perhaps the only fastfood place I enjoy going to nowadays, besides and occasional Wendy's. Still don't understand why they have to put a pickle in their sandwich, though.

4. Earl of Sandwich. Not a chain in America, but they have one at Downtown Disney Marketplace, and I made it a point to go there every chance I got. The Caribbean Jerk sandwich is my favorite, with the Scudetto right behind it.

5. The Cheesecake Factory. I've only been there once, but I had a really good pasta with chicken and pesto, and this unique white wine sauce (I think it was white wine, unless I'm confusing this with Olive Garden). Strange thing is, though, that I don't like cheesecake.

The full service restaurants do. There is a "Cheesecake Factory" in the food court of a mall near me that serves cheesecake along with sandwiches and whatnot. But the main restaurants serve food... TONS of food. They have the longest menu I've ever seen - it's like a book!!!

They also have some of the longest wait times I've seen :lol:

I think they should have a better name than "Cheesecake factories" if it serves good food.

Cheesecake is their specialty, so what name would be better?
