Chain restaurant meme

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

1. Applebee's
2. Arby's (Been there, yes. But I don't like it...)
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 (and to rub it in, there's one in Upland and two in Rancho Cucamonga)
12. Chili's
13. Chipotle (Sorry, but I never have caught the vibe of this place)
14. Chuck E. Cheese's (thankfully have never been in one, so I can't say I "don't like" it, but I would like to keep the record of not knowing better please...)
15. Cici's Pizza
16. Claim Jumper
17. Cluck-U Chicken
18. Cracker Barrel (one of these days when I am around someplace that has one...)
19. Dairy Queen/Brazier
20. Del Taco
21. Denny's
22. Domino's (But can you have actually *gone* to a Domino's and eat there? All the ones I have seen are takeout or delivery)
23. Dunkin Donuts (The donuts we had when in Boston were nothing special. The coffee we have at work is horrible.)
24. El Pollo Loco (Four and a half years of working there, and still I mark as a favorite...)
25. Fatburger (Bit overpriced though)
26. Hard Rock Cafe (Used to have a Hard Rock Cafe Vulcan t-shirt)
27. Hardee's (though given how close this is to Carl's Jr. these days...)
28. Harvey's
29. HomeTown Buffet
30. Hooters
31. IHOP
32. In-n-Out (A SoCal tradition worth keeping.)
33. Ivar's
34. Jack in the Box
35. Johnny Rocket's
36. Kelsey's
37. KFC
38. Krispy Kreme (Caveat: Hot Now)
39. Krystal
40. Long John Silver's (Greasy and flavorless)
41. Marble Slab Creamery (Cold Stone?)
42. Max & Erma's
43. McDonald's (borders on being underlined)
44. Olive Garden
45. Oporto
46. Outback Steakhouse
47. Panda Express
48. Papa John's (Never have been impressed with the flavor of their food)
49. Planet Hollywood
50. Pizza Hut
51. Popeye's
52. Quizno's
53. Rainforest Cafe (Not sure why anyone would go there, and yet it's a tourist destination for some)
54. Red Lobster
55. Red Robin
56. Red Rooster
57. Señor Frog's
58. Skyline Chili (again, one of these days I will be where there is one)
59. Sonic
60. Starbucks (overpriced)
61. Subway
62. Sweet Tomatoes - The same company in SoCal is Souplantation
63. T.G.I.Friday's
64. Taco Bell
65. Taco Del Mar
66. Taco Time (Went once, and that was too much)
67. TCBY
68. The Old Spaghetti Factory
69. Tim Horton's
70. Wendy's
71. Whataburger
72. White Castle

But honestly, I have been focused on local, non-chain stores so much that this list is sad... A lot of the ones that are bolded aren't necessarily good, but I would and have gone there. The struck items I pretty much refuse to go to.

I hardly go to casual chains any more. The last time I was at Chili's (about a year ago) I was so underwhelmed...
