My favorites:
Cheesecake Factory (overall great quality, great pastas, appies, cheesecakes of course but one of the worst hot fudge brownies I've ever had)
Claim Jumper
Tony Roma's
Outback Steakhouse

If I was in the mood for a buffet:
Izzy's Classic Buffet (I'm in Washington state) as they have great fried chicken, macaroni salad, cinnamon rolls & soft serve

I wish there was a Cracker Barrel in my part of the country...and I heard so much about Zaxby's- but is it a fast food place? When I get back to Atlanta later this year, I must try it

Also, I wish more restaurants had desserts such as hot fudge blondies (vanilla brownies) or cookies in skillets- as far as I know, only Applebees & Tony Romas has sweets like that- are there other chains?

Definitely Cracker Barrel-great breakfasts; Panera Bread; Cheesecake Factory; Chipolte's; Applebees; Perkins-great muffins.

A Whiskey Creek just opened in town and people are raving about it. Also building a Bennigan's.

DITTO to each of these.

We also like Panda Express. Not bad for f-a-s-t Chinese.
