Off the plane and straight to the chains

Am I the only person here who gets excited about exploring the chain restaurants of a particular area when traveling? My family moved to Texas a few years back and I was overwhelmed by the new options while driving down the main strip of the town (Lubbock). Three visits in and I haven't even made a dent in the local fast-food scene. My mom was horrified that I was more interested in eating at Whattaburger than having a home-cooked meal (for good reason--my mother is a fan of the cream of mushroom soup/cassarole school of cooking). Bring on the curly fries and save me from another round of tater-tot hot dish.

How about you--what's your favorite regional chain restaurants? Where do you eat when stuck in the airport? And any TX chain recommendations--I'm hitting Austin and Lubbock for Thanksgiving.
