Chain, Chain, Chain

I have a rule about chain restaurants. If you’re visiting someplace new or just moved to a new city or town, try to stay away from them and check out the places unique to your locale first. If you’ve been somewhere for a while, or are a frequent visitor to one area that you’ve explored every inch of, then chains are fair game!

Anyway, it’s no secret that I can be all about the chain 🙂  Fun fact: I once met up with Tia and Joyce at T.G.I.Friday’s, not intending to eat because I wasn’t hungry, and ended up devouring an entire 3 course meal. That’s how I roll, folks. Yesterday, Chris and I stopped by another favorite haunt and American obsesity enabler, The Cheesecake Factory.

*drool*

I had a ginormous plate of farfalle with chicken and roasted garlic, and then we split a Chris’s Outrageous cheesecake for dessert.

This is how I can tell I’m getting old: I can’t finish a meal anymore and need to split dessert 😦   Oh, well – Leftovers mean second meal! I know what I’m eating tonight!

Helpful Cheesecake Factory hack: The tables in the bar area are seat-yourself. Can help cut your wait time down on crowded evenings.

How do you feel about chain restaurants? Love ’em or leave ’em?

  1. Love ’em! Why try someplace new when you’re guaranteed a delicious meal at a chain restaurant? Cheesecake Factory, Maggiano’s, Chili’s, Outback…I love them all!
