They tired of them, boring. The parents took them over and over, they are done! In Miami there is no two places alike to eat. The chains get all the tourists. They restaurants are packed, but not the names or tastes you expect.

New century, new times. Those that can't adapt will disappear, those that can will stay around.

Simple and kick ass.
Ketchup? That's heresy.

Frank's red hot sauce and butter. Period. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

Try it.... again the ketchup adds just a little bit of sweetness and flavor. Straight hot sauce is just little over powering and I'm not talking about the heat either.

I don't see any politics in this issue, but I guess some people find it in every aspect of life. As a counterpoint to all this eating-out at junk-food places, my own food habits are to eat nothing I don't fix myself, from scratch. I eat lean chicken breast and fish, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, pinto and great northern beans, no grains, nonfat plain yogurt, unroasted almonds or butter from them, a few peanuts and an avocado daily. Some days, I cook a stew with pre-cooked beans, tomatoes, celery, onions, chopped chicken or albacore tuna, Italian seasoning and a few splashes of balsamic vinegar. Sometimes, I add fresh mushrooms and sliced olives.

I think that many people would like this stew. In past times, when I had housemates, they got a lot of my cooking and really liked it. My food bill is half what it was before I developed this diet and I'm 25 lbs. lighter and have more strength and energy. I recently dug out some clothes I wore in high school, including some pairs of Dolfin super-short running shorts and they fit again or were a bit too large in places. But I can't wear shorts in public anymore, because it causes too many women to lose control.

Both restaurants are mediocre and overpriced, especially Bw3's. Younger people are preferring to eat healthier, and also are more open to international foods than the older generations. Chains need to adapt or die.

Boomers and GenX aren't liking that crap, either.
I recently went to a Red Lobster quality definitely seems to have fallen .
Had a gift card so that's why we decided to go .
Didn't seem they really cared about the quality of the food .

Also had a gift card for Applebees and that one seemed quite a bit better ..
I'd possibly go back to Applebee's but really not sure about red lobster .

You know, I always thought that if baseball were a restaurant it would be Applebee's and if football was a restaurant it would be Fuddruckers.

I definitely have seen the explosion of delivery services . These sales are good for a business but not as good because they usually spend less with delivery , don't have chance to add alcohol , and the delivery services take a big cut of the sales .
