Are Chain Restaurants a good or bad thing?

LeviT | Feb 4, 2010 02:49 PM

What are your thoughts about Chain Restaurants? Do you think it's a valuable asset to our community? It does provide consistency, and value. However, is there a problem with the mainstream food that is on the menus? It does seem like the menu is targeted towards a specific age group. But couldn't one say that it is a good 'transition' for younger people to approach eating out at restaurant instead of at the food courts at shopping malls?

I've been reading the posts on this board for a while, and I've never seen the selection of restaurants such as Earls, Joey's and Cactus Club been mentioned for any of the suggestions to eat in Vancouver.

Just wondering what your thoughts are.
