1211 - Restaurant meme, evolved

(Good thing I'm doing this after eating lunch...a yummy cheesesteak.)

Via kinkyturtle:

Bold the establishments you've been to. Underline your favorites. Strikethrough the ones you don't like.

1. Applebee's
2. Arby's
3. Baskin-Robbins

4. Beefeater
5. Benihana
6. Black Angus
7. Buffalo Grill
8. Burger King
9. California Pizza Kitchen
10. Carl's Jr.
11. Chick-fil-A
12. Chili's
13. Chipotle
(Best burritos around. Amazingly, being owned by McDonalds didn't screw it up.)
14. Chuck E. Cheese's
15. Cici's Pizza

16. Claim Jumper
17. Cluck-U Chicken
18. Cracker Barrel (Sometimes, I gotta have my Southern cooking fix, and this is the most reliable place to find it.)
19. Dairy Queen/Brazier
20. Del Taco
21. Denny's
22. Domino's
23. Dunkin Donuts

26. Hard Rock Cafe
27. Hardee's

28. Harvey's
29. HomeTown Buffet
30. Hooters
31. IHOP
32. In-n-Out

33. Ivar's
34. Jack in the Box (I'm a sucker for their cheap, two-for-a-buck tacos. So shoot me.)
35. Johnny Rocket's
36. Kelsey's
37. KFC (I'm not a fan of fried chicken: greasy fingers don't impress me.)
38. Krispy Kreme (I never saw why these were such a big deal. They're too heavy and chewy for my taste.)
39. Krystal (For the uninitiated, this is a southeastern US clone of White Castle.)
40. Long John Silver's
41. Marble Slab Creamery
42. Max & Erma's
43. McDonald's
44. Olive Garden

45. Oporto
46. Outback Steakhouse (Yummy dead cow, if not up to Lindey's standard...but available a lot more places.)
47. Panda Express
48. Papa John's (My favorite pizza delivery.)
49. Planet Hollywood
50. Pizza Hut

51. Popeye's (Beats KFC all hollow: spicy chicken and not as greasy.)
52. Quizno's
53. Rainforest Cafe
54. Red Lobster
55. Red Robin
56. Red Rooster

57. Señor Frog's
58. Skyline Chili
59. Sonic

60. Starbucks (Another one I never saw the reason for why it's so popular: the coffee just tastes burned to me.)
61. Subway
62. Sweet Tomatoes
63. T.G.I.Friday's
64. Taco Bell

65. Taco Del Mar
66. Taco Time
67. TCBY
68. The Old Spaghetti Factory
69. Tim Horton's
70. Wendy's

71. Whataburger (The best fast food hamburgers in the known universe.)
72. White Castle

Nice meme. Will go well to show regional variations. For example, White Castle is not here in CA.

Most of the reason I've been to as many as I have is the fact that I've traveled all over the US.

I posted my list; it's a public entry.

Oh goodness. If I did it I'd have about the same number bolded but almost all of them would have strikethroughs.

Yep, I'd strikethrough all of them except possibly Red Lobster and Olive Garden. In recent years, though, those have become much too crowded and noisy for my taste and their prices have gone through the roof, so I don't even visit them.

Only ones I've been to and you haven't are Claim Jumpers and Taco Time. Whataburger is indeed good, I had it in Lubbock when I visited. I wonder why they don't have Arctic Circle on the list? Goodtimes Burgers? Taco Johns? Pancheros? lots of good choices that they didn't touch on. :)
