a 10yt kinda post: chain restaurants

they aren't ALL bad, after all.

name your favorite (or, at least, the one you can stomach), and the #1 thing you love to order from their menu.

i love mimi's cafe, and i always get a buttermilk spice muffin with whatever entree i order.

Re: a 10yt kinda post: chain restaurants

  • I actually have a lot of chains I like. I think my favorite is Chilis. They have these chicken strips with this awesome puffy batter and the best french fries.

  • I honestly think everything at Yard House is good. I love it.

  • I love the cajun ahi tuna caesar salad from Yard House. I haven't had anything that I didn't like from YH, actually... but we love chains.

  • I'm sorry, but seriously this is so impossible for me to answer.  I canNOT just pick one restaurant and the #1 fave thing from it - there are so many ties in my book!

    Plums. We made it just in time for the end of HH, so we got drinks, apps, and food. It was yummy!

  • Grand Lux Cafe (a sibling of Cheesecake Factory).  Best corned beef hash EVER, but so far I can only find it in Vegas Crying They also have a mushroom burger that is just a patty made up entirely of mushrooms.  So. damn. good.

    I am going to LMAO if D is stressing over this.

  • Olive Garden's portobello mushroom ravioli, with extra suace.  Salad for my side, with extra onions and tomatoes, and extra dressing on the side - both for my salad and the breadsticks. 

    I want to cry it sounds so good right now.

  • I love the chinese chicken salad wrap from Applebees.  I also love anything from Yard House.  I super duper LOVE Chick-fil-A as a fast food chain.

    Thats my favorite dish there!

  • YH has a good Happy Hour. I had Islands for lunch. Not horrible, but not my fave. PF Chang's is OK.

    We went to the Rainforest Cafe a couple of weeks ago. That place sucks.

  • Rainforest Cafe is disgusting.

    I like Olive Garden's minestrone soup.

    I like Chili's black bean burger.

    I like PF Changs Orange Rita and spring rolls.?

  • I love Lazy Dog. I get pizza and salad but they have so many good things. My two other favorites are Wood Ranch (bbq chicken breast, broccoli and baked potato) and Lucille's (bbq chicken sandwich). So good!

    have you tried the beverly center location?  their menu is almost as big as cheesecake's.  i haven't been in a few years, though.

  • I've realized that I usually prefer the appetizer/drink menus at most chain places rather than the traditional entree items.

    So with that said, Yard House (crab cakes and watermelon martinis) would be my favorite, followed by Chili's (the triple play appetizer), Cheesecake Factory (strawberry martini) and El Torito (fresh guacamole).

  • I love Daily Grill , Il Fornaio, and McCormick & Schmick's
  • Hands down my favorite chain is Fleming's, but I also really like El Torito Grill, Islands, Jalapeno's, In and Out, Taco Rosa and Javier's.
  • If I had to choose one, I'd choose...chicken taco combo from Avila's El Ranchito in Costa Mesa.  Huntington Beach's just isn't as good and they don't serve fresh homade tortillas.

  • I don't like YH and I will never understand why SO MANY of my friends heart it so.

    Oh my God I want to eat my computer.  Why TF did I re--read this thread?  I don't know.

    If I weren't drunk off margaritas at home right now I'd take my fatass to OG to grub by myself.
