Chain restaurants

Tom G. | Jul 13, 1999 01:09 PM

You're not going to believe this, but somebody has
actually come out with a book that lists where chain
restaurants are located all across the country for
travellers who are stupid enough to want to stick with
what they are familiar with rather than branching out
and trying to local cuisines, hotspots, etc...

The website for the book -- --
says that the inspiration came when the authors tried
to find a TGI Friday's (or something) in Santa Fe and
were horrified when they couldn't find one!!!!! I
don't mean to judge -- but i have can one be
in Santa Fe and want to go to Friday's rather than go
to a little taqueria or a southwestern restaurant
with marvelous REAL margaritas or ANYTHING OTHER THAN

I figure that my fellow chowhounders will be as
disgusted as i am that there is enough of a market in
this country for such a book that they even have their
own website.
