Generally, would you rather eat at a local, home owned restaurant or a chain with consistently reliable food?

Personally, I’m always looking for the ‘local favorite’ restaurant. If there’s local culture or ethnicity, I’m game and score. What’s to lose? You love it, you have a great memory, you hate it, you have a great story.

Friends determined we’d eat at Texas Road House tonight. It was, as I suspected, long (getting seated), loud (they scream things about birthdays that are unintelligible to all but the table) and chaotic (the employees line danced in an area not walkable.

I have another set of friends that toured the Eastern seacoast eating at nothing but McDonald’s. The wife has a tender stomach and prefers the consistency of Micky D’s. I would have gotten her drive through and made her eat it at a mom-and-pop seafood restaurant.

Fast food? I’m all about Taco Bell, Subway or Quiznos. That’s a separate topic.
