Its actually a "Click-ah"

And, although I grew up in Iowa, I use all of those words except "tonic". I call it soda. But lots of people around here don't. No one calls it pop.

Joel, I agree with you about BJ's Restaurant, and their deep dish is great. When my daughters, grandkids, and I all get together in Santa Clarita, BJ's is our go-to. They have great adult-y dishes and kids menus as well, so everyone is happy.

According to the location finder, they're spread out over the US. Here's their menu in case anyone is interested.

Have you had their signature pizookie dessert? The salted caramel is my fave.

Down here, every carbonated soft drink falls under the blanket name, "Coke."

Let's go get a Coke could mean getting a Coke... or a Sprite, or a Dr. Pepper. Although, many people down here will draw a distinction when it comes to Dr. Pepper since Dr. Pepper is a somewhat sacred thing in Texas. Asking for a Mr. Pibb will lead to blank stares at best, or a lot of laughing, at worse.

If you go to a restaurant that only carries Coca-Cola products, they will still have Dr. Pepper.

BJ's is a national chain. We have a handful here in the Dallas area. Well, I think we do. GG, could you verify that for me?

There's no need to try to incite anything here, Casey.

There is one in Coral Springs, FL. We'll have to check it out.
