There were others on the list that were in other world class cities that do top NY's. But compared to the rest of the country, it's definitely most unique and nicest.

And as for the 40 minute wait at Applebees in NYC, I can guarantee that most of them were tourists from the South who are afraid to try local places and not NYC locals. Most Southerners when they vacation up north they will stick to the same chains they know back home...which I just don't understand.
Not posting lies and I know the neighborhood very well, there is nothing else within walking distance.

I can also guarantee that most if not all except for me currently lived in the neighborhood. How many southern tourists do you see in the Bronx? I can see all the tour books now.

I find it hilarious that you post ridiculous generalizations about approximately 100 million people yet when I bring up just an area within a city that I am positive that I am more familiar with than you, you claim I am lying.

I have seen that on the Travel Channel. The show was called the Most Unique McDonald's.

I don't like McDonald's that much, but the one in downtown SA always looked neat to me.

I can't link it but it's 101 Alamo Plaza, if you look it up.

Speaking of chains, has anyone tried that new taco at Taco Bell? I typically hate them, but I was just wondering if that one with the new commercial was actually good or another scam.

It is just a McDonald's, they all have the same food.

But we're talking about unique chain restaurants.

They did that exact same show on MTV once, and I saw it there. I normally watch a lot of MTV... it was surprising to say that they had some very informative things about it.

Like a McDonalds in Alaska people drive snow mobiles through the drive thru, and etc...

I also like to watch Viva La Bam, for those that know what that show is. Ahhhh yeah!

not sure, looks like they are attempting to make an authentic taco though...too many taquerias cutting into their gorditas and chalupas maybe when they have carnitas, barbacao, lengua, chorizo etc then i'll check it out.

I can't tell you how many tourists I have met growing up in NYC who were afraid of trying the good mom and pop type restaurants, and ended up at the safe chains.
Those restaurants are all over NYC in areas that have no tourists also so try again.
