I understand that for many Hounds eating in a chain resto is infra dignitum, but there are doubtless many others on the board who sometimes patronize chains and even enjoy the experience. So here's a thread to confess your fealty to certain chains.
I respect the following:
Whataburger (a very good Texas burger chain)
Johnny Carino's (a very well conceived, creative and expertly managed Italian chain)
Subway (I like the BMT on wheat with lettuce, onions and ranch dressing. I add fresh parm at home.)
Firehouse (Another sandwich chain. Kind of expensive, but they make a corned beef and pastrami extravaganza called the New York Steamer that is worth the money.)
McDonald's (I've been known to grab a Quarterpounder with cheese and a large order of fries.)
Popeye's (dam' good fried chicken and biscuits)
