We have given up on most chains. Sick and tired of their games-lowered quality and serving sizes while prices keep going up.

Not big on chains overall, but Red Lobster and Olive Garden are consistently the worst. Outback is passable.

A Yard House opened last year in Boca Raton and we go there often when we are down there. They have this really HUGE round table that can seat about 12-14 people. I love the half price happy hour menu since we have a large group and we usually pick up the tab.

I also love Hooters!

I love the Cheesecake Factory's desserts. The White Chocolate Caramel Macadamia Nut cheesecake is to die for.

We really only go to the chain restaurants when we are in Florida.

When we eat at sit-down chains, we like Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and TGIF. We always use coupons too.

My favorite chain would have to be Olive Garden. The food is the same no matter which one we go to for lunch. I don't think Picanha with two restaurants counts as a chain here.

My least favorite would be: Burger King

This depends on if it must be a national chain or regional. I'm not much of a chain fan. I do like Eureka Burger which is a small CA chain. My least favorite is TGIFridays or McDonalds.
