Question of the Day

Nicked from Chris: What restaurant chain do you despise?

I always, always, prefer to go to an independent restaurant when possible, and there are still some decent ones in our area, but some of the Chicago suburbs are ridiculous—nothing but chains, from McDonald's (low end chain) to Maggiano's (high end chain). I always find the mid-range chains to be the absolute worst, though. At least with McD's, you know what you're getting (shit), and it's priced accordingly. I'd rather eat there than pay to eat at a mid-ranger like TGI Friday's, where the food is only marginally better, but it costs 5x as much.

And the king of all craptacular mid-rangers is Texas Corral. Folksy peanut shells on the floor and soda out of jam jars are not selling points, btw. Sweep up and give me a decent cup!
