I remember my first few months in Richmond, Va. I was desperate one night to find a place to eat, and Benningan's was the only place I could find that was open. All I remember was--as I was eating an overpriced mediocre chicken dish alone while some god-awful hiphop was blaring on the speakers at nightclub volume--thinking just how in the world I ended up in this city.

/Eventually found some decent late-night restaurants in town
//still wonder I ended up here, 8 years later
///good riddance, Benningan's

Oh good, maybe I can get some fire-sale prices on brass and ferns.

Hate to be the party pooper that actually read the article, but it's just one location. The company is apparently doing fine and opening new locations to boot, according to the website.

Butters: Oh well, when I get a chipotle bleu cheese bacon burger at Bennigan's, I forget all about my dad bein' queer and my mom tryin' to kill me. I'm gonna be okay.
Stan: Really?
Butters: No, I'm lying.

My local Bennigan's closed down about a year ago. I still don't understand why, it was always full of customers.
 
2009-11-14 12:23:32 AM  
Their Monte Cristo is delicious.
 
2009-11-14 12:24:55 AM  
Oh, crap. If Red Lobster or Olive Garden go under also, It's all f*cking over.
 
2009-11-14 12:24:57 AM  
Dang, I kinda liked their Turkey O'Toole.
I guess if I liked it that much, I'd be there more than once every 5 years or so.

Paula's Beautiful Bloodshot Eyes: My local Bennigan's closed down about a year ago. I still don't understand why, it was always full of customers.

The executives hooker and blow expenditures were simply not supportable on the kind of revenue they were generating. For that kind of money you need to be in finance.

I haven't seen one of those crapholes open in 3 years.

As long as Golden Corral is still up and running our national nightmare is still in effect.

Yeah, but Bennigans is truly the Quiznos of the chain-fine-dine gang.

Most are just franchises run by coke-heads, who calculated another 12 weeks of blow, before getting ratted out and opening up a UPS Store.

NTTAWWT.

Take any sandwich, batter it, then deep-fry it and it will ALWAYS be delicious.

Every time.

hey crab66 seems like you gotta lotta time on your hands with that profile

so go fark yourself

Who is greenlighting this crap?

It's local news that even local people may give 1 shiat about but not 2 shiats.

What, the 7-11 around the corner doesn't sell nachos and beer?

Yeah, me too. But the indecent exposure charges put a damper on any of my hanging out shenanigans.

My wife used to do legal work for them (the parent group, anyway) as outside counsel for M&A and real estate work they couldn't handle themselves. She hated them so much she hasn't set foot in a Bennigans or any affiliated restaurant (Steak and Ale, and some others I've forgotten) in the years since. Or maybe we never went to those places because they suck. Either way, I figure I came out a winner on the deal.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

I used to meet a married chick I worked with at Bennigan's after work because I knew no other employees would be in there and see us. So Bennigan's does serve a purpose.

Mentat:I love Butters.


We all love Butters.

The funny thing is, Butters was originally a weak background character. In fact, he's STILL weak, nerdy, and a goody-goody who isn't exactly "in" with the main cast socially. But... he still managed to work in as a major character we all love, even though he's, well, retarded.

I used to like the place until I found out my wife was secretly meeting some guy from work that she was having an affair with there.

One of my worst dates ever included going to Bennigans. I was young and didn't know any better.

Fark you dude. And I still listen to Weird Al too despite your admonitions.
