Admit it... There's Some Dishes at Chain Restaurants You Like

Yes, chain restaurants can hurt the character of neighborhoods and the ability of smaller restaurants to gain a foothold. But sometimes you have a craving... and that craving can only be satiated at a chain restaurant.

Admit your deepest darkest secret and tell what dishes at chain restaurants you like (and please don't forever ban me from the boards ;)

Here are mine:

--chips (not very greasy or salty) and salsa (slightly brown the way it should be)
--fresh tortillas of El Machino
--beans a la charra (pinto beans with pork)

Spaghetti Factory
--spaghetti and meatballs
--creamy pesto salad dressing

--hamburgers (you order it medium and it comes out really flavorful and not dried to a crisp) & fries

California Pizza Kitchen (and even cheaper - CPK ASAP)
--chicken sesame dumplings
--roasted garlic chicken pizza

--honey lime salad dressing

--firecracker pork fusilli
--chicken sausage penne

Boston Market (a.k.a. BoMart)
--chicken is quite good and moist (believe it or not my friends and I went here for Thanksgiving last year - it was a very White Trash Thanksgiving(tm) and fun)

In San Diego, I like Pick Up Stix, and in Texas I enjoy Rudy's BBQ & Chuy's.
