i try not to go to those places unless boyfriend is low on cash. but:
TGI Friday's has a some good stuff, especially these sesame jack chicken things. Ruth's Chris is an exception. i'd go there and not think of it as chain restaurant food. just good food.
i am another who dislikes Denny's. Eat 'n Park, too. the food is so salty it is sickening. i don't like Waffle House, either. just not my kind of food.

tgi friday's used to have these brocolli cheese balls i loved. they were a floret of brocolli, rolled into a ball with cheese then battered and deep fried. they were so good. a few years back they changed the recipe, and now it's just tiny bits of brocolli. they blew it.

Yep! and you can draw in the brown paper tablecloth with black crayons... it's fun! All while you watch your steak being done and take in all the great aromas!

Love Applebees, Chili's, Roadhouse, fast food has to be In & Out (do not have one in Eugene )

Dislike Dennys, McD, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Panda Expess,

It is difficult because there are four restaurants in Eugene that I live but they not national chains and no one would know them. THe same goes for the fast food places.

Im not big on chains, I use to like just the soup and salad at Olive Garden, but that was it, I tolerate Applebee's and gag at the thought of Jonny Carino's (supposed Italian food), I'm spoiled about Italian food, as my m-i-l was Italian, her pasta sauce was not only wonderful to eat, imported dried mushrooms, herbs spices, a dark rich warm brown, color, it was also beautiful to look at. It didn't look like someone opened a can of tomato sauce dumped it over the pasta and said EAT :) So, I like the out of the way places, started by people here in town.

Contradicting myself here, but our local Roadhouse is always packed; however, the time we ate there the service and food were terrible.

The Roadhouse here in Eugene runs hot and cold. I have eaten there three times and once was great, once good and the last time awful. The first two times I had their ribs, the last time a steak and it belonged on the sole of my shoe.
