you can get an *okay* flame broiled burger at burger king. you have to ask for it "off the broiler" though, otherwise they nuke a pre-cooked burger.

Haven't heard of half of these, disagree with most of the ones I've tried. Chipotle's is OK, but not nearly as good for you as they pretend to be.
 
2012-01-03 08:17:03 PM
Actually a very good list. Eaten at all but #9, #3, and #1. I will say I had an awful experience at Melting Pot. Combining wine, very low lighting, uncooked food, and no timer....yeah I god food poisoning on my anniversary. Melting Pot is better as a cheese and chocolate place. Forego the cooking your own chicken and shrimp.

I'd throw in Bonefish Grill and my local chain, El Dorado.

I was expecting to see at least one sub sandwich place on the list. Firehouse Subs maybe? Jimmy Johns? Most of those types of places do at least one sandwich really well. Except Subway, where they do a bunch of shiat really average and nothing particularly well.

Yeah both of those are good. Jason's Deli doesn't specialize in subs but I bet you could get one there. I love me some Jason's Deli.

I don't get the appeal of Outback Steakhouse. I was in one only once, despite it being two miles from my house. Ridiculously small portions (and lots of things were "extra") and the food wasn't anything that I couldn't get at "Applebee's". Everyone and their grandmother has the "Bloomin' Onion" things now. I much prefer Texas Roadhouse....hell of a lot cheaper and tastier, although noisy as hell.

Ted's Montana Grill is pretty good, although they aren't everywhere and their menu is fairly basic.

All I'm going to say is that I've been to a number of restaurants, and although I cook a pretty good filet mignon, the best filet I've ever had was a takeout steak at an Outback.

Also, Applebee's sucks cock. And Texas Roadhouse is great if you like gristly pieces of overcooked steak. The one I live near is particularly awful.

They just opened a Chipotle's in Albuquerque, we probably won't go there. Yeah,call us foodie snobs,but why go there when we can eat at Sadie's,Los Cuates or Papa Felipe's.

Also, Blake's Lotaburger for a local chain that makes drool-worthy green chile cheeseburgers.

As someone who is on the road a lot, that is a very good list. Never have gone to the Melting Pot but have to all the others. Very solid choices if you are in a strange town.

2012-01-03 08:28:34 PM
The Cheesecake Factory is a horrible place to eat unless you're going specifically for their cheesecake, which is great. Otherwise it's just enormous portions of really mediocre food. Just like pretty much other chain restaurant of the same caliber.
 
2012-01-03 08:28:42 PM
They missed 4 really good restaurants although they mentioned in passing Morton's. Roy's>Flemings>Ruth's Chris>Morton's they're all steakhouses pretty much but Roy's is Hawaiian and does some Asian fusion stuff very well. Flemings is head and shoulders above the rest in steaks though.

Having tried a cheeseburger at In-N-Out Burger in Vegas this summer, I have to say I don't know why people go so nutty over their stuff. Yes, it was fine, but not exactly the pinnacle hamburger experience that some make it out to be.

The only restaurant that refused to serve me was one time at a Waffle House. I wish I was kidding. My friends and I waited for 30 minutes and no one even asked for an order. No, it wasn't busy, wasn't even that late, and other people were getting their orders and food. There were, however, no other white people in the place. We must have missed the sign on the front door that said No Whites.
 
2012-01-03 08:31:01 PM
Only 3 of the places in the list even have restaurants in Michigan, given my past experiences whenever someone makes a restaurant list... that's more than I expected there to be.

Not true. They got one out in Lancaster, PA, and about 4 others around the middle area of the state. I think that is as far North as they go though. (NJ or NY don't seem to have any according to the locator).
 
2012-01-03 08:32:29 PM
They list Five Guys and In and Out, but I'd go further and also add regional staples like Steak N Shake, and Culvers to that same list. All of them are great places for a chain burger while on the road.

Ate at Waffle House a couple times during my cross-country drive after grad school. First place was in Asheville North Carolina. The first thing I noticed was the "cash only" sign on the door. The second thing was that the non-smoking section was two booths. The third was the cook--who was a thin guy--had only half his teeth.

Second time was just west of Oklahoma City. Wasn't so bad there. Just a matter of convenience. It was next to the motel.

Chipotle is delicious. The rest I can live without, but no one puts Chipotle in the corner.

I generally get the following there: Burrito bowl, white rice with black beans, steak, hot salsa and corn, sour cream and cheese. I grab 2 lemons and drench the bowl. If I am at home, I add a few drops of Dave's Insanity hot sauce. Yum!

Agree to disagree, then, although I suspect your affection for the stuff may be due to enjoying it as a wee one. Not even a big chili guy and it aint a chain but love the stuff you get at Ben's Chili Bowl in DC.

See my problem with Mexican joints like Moe's is that frankly in most places where there's a Moe's, there's a better Mexican dive within a few miles. Same would probably go for Chipotle, although I haven't been there. Qdoba's and Moe's - to me, meh, it's the same place.

Yeah, but the Nachos Pollo at El Dorado are the bomb, if you don't mind the caloric intake. El Dorado sometimes has some decent margarita deals too.

My favorite deal at El Dorado though was a $2 24-oz glass of Dos Equis.

I don't always go to El Dorado, but when I do...I drink Dos Equis.

Yeah, we only have Chipotle and Qdoba around here, but theyre pretty interchangeable. Chipotle uses chipotles, Qdoba uses poblanos, other than that pretty much the same menu.


"Our handcrafted burritos include cilantro-lime rice, slow-cooked black or pinto beans, salsa, sour cream and cheese"

Yeah, I've been in a couple of WH locations in "urban" environments like that. I just shout my own order to the cook and fark Vaneesha.


Haha, I think we tried that. It was just a surreal experience at the time, I was new to the area. Whatever, fine by me, I'll take my money elsewhere. Seems silly to me.

Cool, I'm glad to hear WH has restaurants "north-ish".

We used to go in there and play all of the Waffle house songs on the jukebox and then leave. After we had already eaten, of course. No sense getting anything extra added to the food. But then, those were my more dickish days.

Just recently had 5 guys for the first time, and they really run a tight ship. I like how they have where the taters come from, but I don't get over-filling the bag with tons of fries. I'm not really a fry guy though.

Mistymtnhop: HappyLittleTree: Chipotle is delicious. The rest I can live without, but no one puts Chipotle in the corner.

I generally get the following there: Burrito bowl, white rice with black beans, steak, hot salsa and corn, sour cream and cheese. I grab 2 lemons and drench the bowl. If I am at home, I add a few drops of Dave's Insanity hot sauce. Yum!

I love Chipotle too. Chicken bowl, white rice, beans, lots of salsa and white chedder. Delicious. They have a secret menu too!
I even started making the Jasmine-cilantro- lime rice at home. Much better than tomato based spanish rice IMO.


I just checked their secret menu, and can't stop thinking about a Quesorito.

ACCORDianate: On my recent road trip trip to Cali last Spring, I insisted we go to In N Out, and when the rest of the family wanted other fast food, I dropped them off and went across the street to get one of their burgers and fries.

I also miss living in Dallas where I can get a Whataburger or go to Fuddruckers [and now In N Out apparently]. I also miss Pancho's Mexican Buffet [Plano].

I also miss good Tex-Mex and Cajun food. Living in OR sucks.


Here. Let me drawl this slowly out for you....

"Whataburger with Cheese and Jalapeno, tub of fries, tub of Coke."

Outback Steakhouse? Are you freaking kidding me? The one time I went I was struck by how leathery tough the steaks were and how unexceptional the rest of the food was. If you want to go and have a nice slab of dead cow, go seek out a Firebirds.

In-n-Out would be great if their shakes were made with real hard ice cream + milk. But they're not, so In-n-Out is just OK.

I've never been in a Waffle House when the employees didn't seem like they were on drugs. Oh, and one of my friends has a rather hilarious story he tells about another Waffle House patron repeatedly calling him a "faggot", until my friend got sick of it and started making eyes at said patron. He's probably lucky he didn't get beaten up though.

/I think getting called anti-gay slurs at Waffle House is probably preferable to the roaches that always seem to be in the place
 
2012-01-03 09:16:44 PM
Outbacks, at least in my area, are very mediocre. Most of the time your steak is cooked half a degree cooler than you asked. They usually do the prime rib up OK, but quality wise the meat is nothing to write home about. Texas Roadhouse does a much better job.

Also, they closed all the Ted's around my area, are there still any open besides Georgia?

natmar_76: 10. Cheesecake Factory


How about no. I actually have never eaten there so I suppose it's unfair for me to judge but I don't want cheesecake for dinner. I don't even want it for desert because if I'm still hungry after dinner you didn't put enough steak and potatoes on my plate.


9. Chipotle Mexican Grill
Meh - it's a "Mexican" chain restaurant. I put the word "Mexican" in quotes because I've been to Mexico and eaten actual Mexican food.


8. Five Guys
Yeah, I'm out of it. I still haven't eaten there.

7. Jason's Deli
It's a deli - they make sandwiches. They're okay for what they are.
6. California Pizza Kitchen No
5. Outback Steakhouse No
4. Ted's Montana Grill
3. Houston's
2. Melting Pot


I never even heard of those last 3 places.

1. In-N-Out Burger

Texas Burger is better but there's nothing wrong with a bit of the old In-Out In-Out.
 
2012-01-03 09:20:12 PM

Lydia_C: Having tried a cheeseburger at In-N-Out Burger in Vegas this summer, I have to say I don't know why people go so nutty over their stuff. Yes, it was fine, but not exactly the pinnacle hamburger experience that some make it out to be.


Its kind of like cocaine. Having cocaine once is a "what's the big deal" experience. After you develop a taste for it, it kind of gnaws at you.

Whataburger belongs on this list. Also, Outback is horrible, the meat is cheap and overseasoned in order to compensate for quality, and if they are going to include a chain steakhouse, at least go with Texas Roadhouse.

Und Becks: I think Whataburger is better than

/there, I said it
//from the east coast fwtw


Yeah, there used to be a Whataburger in Nags Head and Hatteras which were "must" stops on any surfari to the Outer Banks in the late 60s and early 70s. It says a lot about the overdevelopment of that area that both have been replaced by McDonald's - which doesn't serve food but what appears to be and tastes like petroleum by-products.
 
2012-01-03 09:59:52 PM

Zap_Rowsdower: Haven't heard of half of these, disagree with most of the ones I've tried. Chipotle's is OK, but not nearly as good for you as they pretend to be.


carnitas bowl with brown rice, beans, hot sauce, guacamole and as much lettuce as they can squeeze in the container is actually a very balanced meal and other than way, way too much sodium is pretty tasty.
 
2012-01-03 09:59:56 PM
Chipotle is OK, pretty bland, but let's not start calling it Mexican food, kind of a Mexican style, in the fact that you are wrapping stuff in a tortilla, but that is about it. You might as well say "Hey McDonalds has Mexican food!" The big mac wrap.
 
2012-01-03 10:00:10 PM

Gairloch: Only 3 of the places in the list even have restaurants in Michigan, given my past experiences whenever someone makes a restaurant list... that's more than I expected there to be.

Why would you return to a place that farked you over even one time? And yes, I do consider a leathery steak to be a farking-over of the highest magnitude. Unforgivable for how many steaks those cooks have to practice on. Or perhaps it's their subgrade meat they use. Here's a nugget I found on Wiki that will keep me out of the outback permanently: "The company and its founders are major contributors, via the Outback Steakhouse PAC, to the Republican Party, contributing $303,015 and $334,197 for the 2000 and 2004 election cycles, respectively." It makes sense that they don't give a flying fark about food quality.

Genghis Grill (new window) Mongolian BBQ. Great concept: just pay for a bowl, load it up, sauce it up, choose a carb, let the cooks do their thing, and then chow the fark down. Add unlimited bowls thereafter for a nominal fee.

Went to their homepage to find the link and noticed they just opened one up in my hometown. I know where I'm going for lunch tomorrow!!
 
2012-01-03 10:05:26 PM

carnifex2005: As someone who is on the road a lot, that is a very good list. Never have gone to the Melting Pot but have to all the others. Very solid choices if you are in a strange town.


You need a smatphone, google maps for brewpub and look for 4+ stars, hasn't served me wrong yet and I've done it in 37 states. Also the yelp app if you don't feel like bar food and a beer.

Melting Pot and Outback are jokes. Melting Pot is terribly over priced and unsatisfying. Outback is mediocre at best.

I love me some 5 Guys, but I'm not certain whether I'm looking forward to the burgers or the fries when I eat there.

I adore Jason's Deli. I would probably kill for a New York Yankee.

Every time I'm in a place to get an In-N-Out Burger I never get to eat there. I'm dying to do so, maybe the next time I'm on the west coast.

Ohh, and I've seen some mentions of Fuddruckers and that might have been true once, but these last few years haven't been kind at all for those in the Atlanta area. They've become complete ass. . and then mercifully closed.
 
2012-01-03 10:07:22 PM

adjmcloon: 5 guys is killer. Jason's started here in Southeast Texas, and they do it right, excellent all around. The Sgt Pepper with a cup of broccoli cheese soup is great.

And I definitely 2nd the Waffle House, although I have been told there are none north of the Mason Dixon line


The many here in NE Ohio would find their lack of existance quite funny.

As a road warrior I agree with most restaurants listed, particularly Outback. Also Texas Roadhouse makes a Chicken Critter Salad that is off the hook. Seriously, it's awesome. Before I leave on business trips I go to google maps to figure out where the nearest Texas Roadhouse is to my destination.Their other menu items are hit and miss though. Also I would like to add that Applebees is a shiatty restaurant that serves food that has been pre-packaged and then warmed up just after you order. They suck.

4. Ted's Montana Grill - Pretty good. Love the burgers especially, the steak is good and the onion rings are superb.

3. Houston's - Never been. Not even familiar with them.

2. Melting Pot - Never been and never really saw the point.

1. In-N-Out Burger - I'd rather go to Five Guys.

You ARE kidding, right? Skyline is watery, flavorless crap. Their cheddar cheese is shredded plastic. Ugh. Awful, awful chili. I wouldn't feed it to my dog.

Skyline is food of the gods. I'm originally from Cincy and I crave Skyline on a fortnightly basis. Now, Goldstar, OTOH, is crap that comes out of a can and served at malls.

I love it when my mom sends me Graeter's and Skyline care packages.


Skyline is shiat. People who like Skyline are also the same people who drink sugared pop throughout their entire adult lives - because they need the sugar, or corn syrup, or "sweet taste".

Gold Star is Cincinnati Chili for refined fast food taste buds. Skyline is for fat people, diabetics in denial, teenagers, the homeless, and rampant loose Sugar Gliders. Skyline chili is just bad Cincinnati chili but with extra, extra sugar and even worse spaghetti. Nothing but sugar.

If you like Skyline Chili, you probably dismiss Coke Zero as "not sweet enough", Orange Crush as "would be better mixed with Mountain Dew", and think you drink "coffee" once it has 1,200 extra calories of sugar and syrup added to it.

Skyline Chili is to Cincinnati chili as Purple Drank is to Diet Coke. It's just terrible.

I grew up in New Orleans where we hate chain restuarants, was eating at Ruth Chris's when there was only 1 location, and I have to say I will eat at a Houstons anywhere I see one. I have eaten at them all over the country and they are pretty damn tasty.

It is not on the menu anymore but they have a prime rib platter with au jus, horseradish, baked potato, and garlic toast that is to die for.

The best chain that i have been to recently would be Bonefish grill. I live 20 miles off the coast of Georgia so most of my seafood I get locally and just cook myself but we will occasionally go to bonefish and the food is always good.

Five guys is good but we have a local burger place i like better that makes their own ketchup so we rarely go to five guys.

My five year old loves fondue so we eat it often and its so much cheaper to just do at the house but the one time i went to melting pot I liked it...for what it is.

We will get soups from Carrabas as takeout every so often. Thats about our extent of chain meals. I have nothing against going to a chain restaurant but the waits are usually long and you can get better food if you are just willing to research an area a little before visiting.

I used to love Waffle House... so perfectly existential in the wee hours of the morning.

A couple of experiences sullied my passion for the brand, though. The first was about a year ago, when I walked into one at about 3am... it was open, the lights were on, but a) no hired help were anywhere to be seen/heard, and, b) there was not a clean seat/booth to be found. EVERY FARKING SEAT needed to be bussed. I waited for 3 minutes or so, even called out (no answer), then got the fark outta Dodge.

About two months ago, at a different location, I ordered a ham & cheese omelette for takeout, with a side of bacon. The tab came to an astonishing $13.50... they'd started adding a surcharge for takeout, as well as substantially raising their prices.

adjmcloon: kyuzokai: Found a new favorite chain when I was in Charlotte NC, recently:

Genghis Grill (new window) Mongolian BBQ. Great concept: just pay for a bowl, load it up, sauce it up, choose a carb, let the cooks do their thing, and then chow the fark down. Add unlimited bowls thereafter for a nominal fee.

Went to their homepage to find the link and noticed they just opened one up in my hometown. I know where I'm going for lunch tomorrow!!

LOVE some Genghis grill. Mongolian bbq FTW. Sadly I have to travel to Houston (closest location) to get it


Seriously?

When I go out, I want something that I can't do at home, or would involve major difficulty.

Mediocre stir fry is something I can easily make at home.

I'mma join in the Outback hate.

SO. MUCH. SAAAALLLLLTTTTTTT!

Seriously, the food at Outback is little different to this:

And before you question me, know that I am the person who salts almost everything I eat except desserts. And I'm the person among all of my friends and family--with the sole exception of my father, before his doctor persuaded him otherwise--who puts the most salt on my food.

If I say it's too salty, it's too salty and a half.

I had been told that Bonefish Grill was awful, but found myself at one grudgingly for dinner one night last year before we moved. It was really, really good food and the wait-staff was on the ball. I think we need to try the one over in Alpharetta now that we've moved to Roswell.

bdub77: I knew you were in Raleigh before clicking your profile. I used to live in Founder's Row - right next to El Dorado. That was amazing and awful at the same time; no one should have that kind of temptaion 10 steps from their door. Not a chain, but have you done the $1 margarita Mondays at Toreros?

Yeah, but the Nachos Pollo at El Dorado are the bomb, if you don't mind the caloric intake. El Dorado sometimes has some decent margarita deals too.

My favorite deal at El Dorado though was a $2 24-oz glass of Dos Equis.

I don't always go to El Dorado, but when I do...I drink Dos Equis.


We used to be regulars at the El Dorado in Cary. Those Margaritas served in the near-goldfish bowl-sized glasses were no joke.

I like Chipotle. It's good, clean, grilled chicken with some good rice and beans, and whatever sides you want. It's healthy and you get a good sized portion.

It's a lot better than most chains, and that includes stuff like subway.

bdub77: Actually a very good list. Eaten at all but #9, #3, and #1. I will say I had an awful experience at Melting Pot. Combining wine, very low lighting, uncooked food, and no timer....yeah I god food poisoning on my anniversary. Melting Pot is better as a cheese and chocolate place. Forego the cooking your own chicken and shrimp.

I'd throw in Bonefish Grill and my local chain, El Dorado.


El Dorado? The food has always been decent but every El Dorado I've ever been in seems like it's one visit from the sanitation inspector from being shuttered. I prefer Los Tres myself but really I've found that all of the Mexican joints around here are basically the same: even the numbers on the "combination dinners" are the same.

I confirm your sentiments on Melting Pot: let me do the cheese & desert course at the table but cook my farking entree in the god damn kitchen. If I wanted to cook my own dinner I should have stayed home!

But to add my two cents on a good burger, when I lived in Little Rock there was a place called Cotham's that served a one pound Hubcap Burger. One of the best burgers I've ever had.


One of the best places for burgers in my area is Giant Burger. To make certain that people understand that they can't walk in and have their order ready in under 5 minutes, they have a sign that says, "This is NOT fast food".

I'm an unapologetic food snob, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with liking Chipotle. The founder Steve Ells is a classically trained chef and has been praised by some pretty significant food critics for his approach to food, including by Pulitzer Prize winning Jonathon Gold. He was a classically trained chef and it shows. The food is fresh and made with sustainable ingredients. They don't open up stores in areas that they cant distribute fresh ingredients to. You can get carnitas and barbacoa and freshly made chunky guacamole with real avacado. The few times I've tried other burrito chains they simply offer generic and ubiquitous "steak" or "chicken" of grade F meat and some smooth bright green paste referred to as guacamole.

What's interesting, and what I'm hoping takes off, is that he's now trying his hand at a new potential line of restaurants based off of Southeast Asian Street Food. He brought in James Beard winning chefs to help him assemble the menu to try to make it accessible to mainstream America. Damnit America, we need to be eating more Vietnamese Banh Mis with fresh ingredients, and less 5 dollar foot longs of pale grey coldcuts. We need more currys and less alarmingly flourescent orange General Tso's Chicken glaze. Let's make this happen.

Well, I live by myself and stocking my fridge with the 6.02 X 10^23 ingredients available at the bar just isn't practical (unless I develop a taste for moldy slush).

I take it you never eat burgers out? Sausage, bacon, & egg breakfast? Bratwurst? They can be made easily at home. I can prepare steak and mushrooms at home that blows Outback's crap away (and often do). Most of us go to chain restaurants for convenience and the necessity of 1 hour lunches. Add the 'distinctive' flavor of many of the dishes they provide in the mix, and whether or not one can make it at home is irrelevant.

When I cook at home (about 2-3 times a week, excluding sammiches for lunch), I usually make something that I CAN'T get in a restaurant (or not to the level of satisfaction that I like for the price I feel is reasonable).

When I traveled through Mongolia I thought I would be seeing Mongolian Grills everywhere, the way you see gyro's on every corner in Istanbul or Banh Mi or Pho carts in Vietnam. Turns out Mongolian Grills are a strictly American marketing invention to get people to pay $7 for $2 worth of stir fry.

In Japan, there is a dish called "Genghis Khan" of lamb and bean sprouts cooked on an upside-down, ridged, wok-type thing (see below). It is so named because the pan looks like the helmets worn by the Mongolian warriors of old. I always assumed that the American take on it was based somewhat on that but with a hot plate (teppan in Japanese, or Hibachi to Americans) substituting for the helmet.

Toledo, oddly enough, for years also had the northern-most Cracker Barrel.
