Mysterious Cachet, Part Deux

Can's posting regarding his reaction to Pie n Burger prompts the Grubster to revisit a recent question: What restaurants do not live up to their Chowhound hype? ie, what restaurants seem to be thriving on some unexplained, mysterious cachet that draws folks -- even discerning hounds -- to them?

At the risk of offending the same folks I offended last time, I won't mention Tito's Tacos or Krispy Kreme, but go straight to Apple Pan (look Mom, it's a hamburger theme!) whose cachet seems to be only their ability to serve "pretty good," somewhat pricey burgers in an uncomfortable setting.
