Chain Restaurants 23

Your favorite (and least favorite) restaurant/food chains in Toronto/the GTA

my favorites are:
cora's- had the nutella banana crepe and it was super. not to mention it was MASSIVE. I've also tried the breakfast sausages and they were yummy.

the sandwich box- i always get the chicken/brie/tomato/avacado chipotle mayo sandwich. it's like my go-to place for sandwiches. i think a lot of their stores have closed down though.

mandarin- errr yeah. not exactly proud of this one. but honestly, who doesn't love americanized "chinese" food?

chipotle- SO glad they opened a franchise in canada. i haven't met a person who doesn't like their burritos.

least favorites:
fresh- had a a spoonful of food, and i couldn't finish, it was just that bad. i took it home to give to my dad (who eats EVERYTHING) and he tossed it. the desserts weren't bad though. and the waiters were quite good-looking too, which is a bonus (haha!)

marche/richtree- overpriced, lousy food. eaten there on multiple occasions, and have NOT been impressed in the slightest. from what i can recall, the pastas are always mushy and flavorless. bleh!

i know a lot of you hounds tend to hate on food chains, but i'm curious to see which ones you've actually ENJOYED.
