LOVE On The Border, my husband and I will go through 2 - 3 bowls of chips and 3-4 dishes of salsa before we even get the dinner. Dinner is always good, dessert is great...he loves the Kaluha pie, I love the Turtles. We go about every other week.

My favorites:

1. Applebee's (It has a like a bar scene atmosphere, but without the drunk idiots in it and without the rude bartenders too. A fun place to take a friend out for lunch and drinks).

2. Chili's (Same thing as above).

3. Buffalo Wild Wings (great place to watch sports and eat chicken wings).

4. Cracker Barrel (I love their omeletes).

5. Lone Star Steakhouse (a great place to have a good time and good food).

6. Olive Garden (best Italian food, since my mother).

Let's see ... it's hard to narrow down the choices! I like Bahama Breeze (it's one that hasn't been mentioned, I think). It's a fun restaurant. Red Lobster and Picadilly Cafeterias are others I would hate to see go. I like most of the chains mentioned that are available in the southeast, some more than others. Finally, I absolutely love Cracker Barrel and Waffle House. It fascinates me to watch them cook the omelets.

I like going to these places for breakfast:
IHOP - their coffee in thermal carafes, double blueberry pancakes.
Bob Evans - mochas, turkey and spinach omelette. Not skimpy with their turkey. Other tasty options (for me anyways): Farmers Choice breakfast w/ the blueberry crepe.
Cracker Barrel - the fireplace on a cold, snowy day. Wish they would bring back their 'skillet meals'.
Perkins - Belgian waffle with blueberry topping.

Dinner:
Buffalo Wild Wings, Chili's, TGIF, Olive Garden (classic lasagne and salad), and sometimes Red Lobster for their specials. Soon to be getting Logan's Road House. Wish we had a Dave and Busters, Carraba's, Cheesecake Factory, and a Don Pablos.

Breakfast:
Bob Evans ~ Western Omelet
Village Inn ~ Cross Country Omelet and Ultimate Skillet

I love omelets, and the above make the best imo. I've never seen omelets offered at Cracker Barrel.

Dinner:
Chili's ~ Cajun Chicken Sandwich, Fajitas, Mesquite Chicken Salad
Applebee's ~ BBQ Chicken Salad
O'Charley's ~ Love their rolls, Spicy Jack Cheese Wedges, and Chipotle BBQ Tenders
Bono's Pit Bar-B-Q ~ Best barbecue around; ribs, beef, pork, and chicken, sweet potato, fried corn on the cob, and homemade banana pudding
La Nopalera ~ Best Mexican around; Burrito, Enchilada, Chile Relleno, Tostada, Taco, and Fajitas
LongHorn Steakhouse ~ Best steak around; Firecracker Chicken Wraps and Rocky Top Chicken
Ted's Montana Grill ~ Love their bison burgers
Blue Boy Sandwich Shop ~ Giant delicious subs for cheap, and they bake their own breads from scratch. Western Steak Sub, Mini Super Club, Pizza Burger Sub
St. Johns Seafood & Steaks ~ Best seafood around

I don't like chain restaurants. They are all owned by one of three major corporations and have cookie cutter, premade microwaved food served by low paid, hounded employees in "theme" locations designed by style consultants. This consolidation has been a recent phenomenon over the past ten years or so. They are joyless and soulless

Cracker Barrel: Home style dinners and the warm friendly country atmosphere.
Applebees: Quesedilla burgers and the brutus beer.
Places I don't like: I was in red Robin and while the food was on a par with Applebees and Fridays, the noise level was intolerable. Maybe because it just opened and their were a lot of kids running around or they had the volume turned up it too loud. I'll give them a second chance some time to see if it was a one time problem.

I thought about Perkins right after I posted. We don't have them in Georgia but I liked the one in Florida. Forgot about IHOP!
