Best Local Type Chains in Burbank/Santa Monica/Oxnard/Ventura Areas?

wintersummer | Jun 20, 201104:54 AM     25

We're flying into Burbank airport, using Southern California as starting point for driving up the PCH. Our flight is scheduled to arrive around 1 p.m., and we'd love to have a nice lunch. We're also looking for a place for dinner.

Here's the catch - with airline schedules being what they are, I have no idea when we will arrive. If it's late, we'll just stay in Burbank. If we arrive on time, we might drive to Santa Monica, then head up Highway 1. If we arrive somewhat late, we might drive to Oxnard or Ventura and spend the first night. In other words, I don't have any idea where we will be for dinner!

Here's the question: are there any good (great) reliable chain type places in Southern California, where I could plug it into my GPS and be taken to a decent meal - regardless of my general So Cal location?
