What the f*ck are you talking about? That's not Italian food, that's complete...

Oh wait... Canada. Yeah, sorry, carry on.


Forgive them, TGD, for they know not what they eat.


I know what I eat, and I agree, the Olive Garden sucks. I won't go back. My wife is an excellent cook and her Italian dishes put Olive Garden to shame, and she is not Italian.

The problem with the chains is all the meals are in single serving bags and they boil them to heat them and then serve you. Nothing is made in the restaurant anymore except maybe the salad. All the meals are prepackaged in a plant in Somalia and then shipped to the chain for distribution. It's CRAP food.

I meant to specifically state Olive Garden is horrid here. Excepting the soup salad and bread sticks.

Mr. Frog's was ok. They did not have the cool new plastic frog sign when it was here in the'90s.

That's really revolting lol.

That place is jammed every time I drive by it. I've eaten there a few times and I find it's "OK" and I don't suppose I expect much more from a chain restaurant.

Don't be that way. Last time I went to one was near Waikiki. They came around with a bottle of blue banana flavoured tequila and poured it into any adult that would lean back and open their mouth. We ate nachos and met someone from an internment forum. The place is marvelous.

Sounds like those hipster restaurants in NYC where they shout at you and throw food at you, et cetera all in good fun.

You know, I'm being pretty hard on these places but I eat pretty much strictly home-cooked meals either by myself or someone else so I'm somewhat spoiled. I remember before this was the case and I really loved to eat at some particular chains. In all seriousness, I don't knock anyone for loving the Olive Garden or anywhere else for that matter. If that's your idea of great food who am I to talk trash? Besides, some of my favorite things to eat are goat products: meat, milk, cheese, etc. and I'm sure many on here would find this utterly disgusting. :D

I voted Chili's, they have good ribs, and I love their tortilla chips and salsa.
I might want to choose IHOP if it's not one of those horrible 24-hour ones full of drunks, serial killers, and biker gangs all night.

Best casual restaurant overall though in my opinion is Fuddruckers. Best burgers ever, fresh baked buns, great onion rings, and as a bonus for the having to work there part, the costumers put the fixings on by themselves.

You must be a big fan of Nico's house of Goat.*

I'd probably like that. Not everyday, just once in a while. Unless the food is spectacular, then more often.

Is it a chain? If so, it must be Canadian because we don't have them around here. :(

If you're lucky you might catch some of the food in your mouth when they throw it, otherwise I'm not sure if you would ever know the quality.

I went for Outback. When in doubt own something that serves Blooming Onions and a good Queen Victoria Fillet from a wood stove topped with horseradish crust.

Actually I'm kind of sad that's not a real place. I'd possibly leave skid marks stopping the vehicle to eat there.

Ironically, the only time I have eaten goat meat (I'm going to ignore the time I bought it frozen and ruined it terribly) was in an Indian restaurant.

Yes, that's the best way to have it imho but I'm certainly not picky. :D

We have an East Indian restarant in a city near ours that is fantastic and the family running it are awesome, I bet they'd yell and throw nana at us if it wasn't too busy. http://www.tajairdrie.com/

There's also a Pakistani restarant that is really inexpensive with unbelievably good food.
