I agree, my least favorite is TGIF. I had a friend who worked at one & we'd go visit him, but the food was mediocre on the best visits.

I also like Bahama Breeze. Our local 5 guys is great, Ruby Tuesdays is pretty good for what you pay, and I really like Chipotle. For Breakfast, our local Bob Evans is pretty tasty, though they serve a week's worth of calories on one plate. I stopped at a Steak 'N Shake once on a road trip and thoroughly enjoyed my burger, but all bets are off when you're hungry on the road! A BJ's opened up in Tacoma just before we left there. We tried it once and were actually impressed with what we got.

Most of the other chains I've been too have been pretty forgettable. Some decent dishes, some awful. I agree with several people on here who say it greatly depends on the location.

Oh, I also liked Claim Jumper when I was out west, but their enormous portions were a bit of a deterrent for me. Just too much food.

I modify my vote for Jack Astor's. We went on Sunday and the menu is much smaller and it wasn't quite as good as before.

I think that my favorite restaurant is a local place called Frankie's. I also like the olive garden, and Arby's. My least favorite: Chili's, Mc Donald's, Friday's, and Apple Bee's (my husband's fave)

In my home have very little selection. In Spokane, I enjoyed Chicago brother's Pizza. Here in SSM, Pizza Hut and Guido's Pizza are pretty good. In El Dajon, CA, a fave was La Cojita with their amazing carne asada buritos. Cold Stone Ice Cream is the bomb! Clyde's Drive Inn has three little drive in restaurants in Michgan, with car hops, and makes a mean hamburger (3/4 lb. of hand made burger pattiy, with freshly cut and made french fries, and great malted milks. Captain Kid's Fish & Chips isn't too bad. square Pan Pizza is good.

Least favorite - Applbe's, McDonalds, and Big Boy's, with Country Kitchen not far behind. Haven't found an Italian Restaurant that I like yet. KFC has gotten terrible, especially for the price.

Thanks PF for letting me know about the place in Fort Collins. It is a bit of a drive, but if we are up that way we will stop in.

Just think of 3 pouting kidlettes when thier Daddy said, "No!" and ended up taking them there anyway. I'm not sure it's still there, it's on old Highway 287.

One of my favourite restaurant chains in Canada is called Cora. They have amazing breakfast and lunch. I highly recommend it!
I am also a huge fan of Olive Garden!

Thinking of breakfast places in Canada, we have a small chain here in Quebec called Eggsquise. Truly great breakfast, excellent service, bottomless coffee cup, lots of yummy choices on the menu, including really good cretons. Not cheap.
