Question What Are Some Popular Restaurants You've Never Been To?

What are the popular restaurants around that you've never eaten at before or only had literally a handful of times? The places could also be currently in-or-out of business.

For me, most of these are because they aren't located near me:




- Friendly's (I had Friendly's once when I vacationed in Gettysburg around summer of 1999)


- Denny's (Had a handful of times when I visited New Jersey, but don't have it regularly)


- International House of Pancakes (IHOP)


- Dairy Queen


- Cracker Barrel


- Howard Johnson's (Had only once)


- Bob Evans Restaurants


- California Pizza Kitchen (They are around me, just never been there)


- Dave & Buster's (I've played their arcades, but never had the food)


- Shoney's


- A&W


- Chipotle (They are around me, just never had the desire for their food)


- Beefsteak Charlie's (Had twice in NYC during the mid-90s)

The Cheesecake Factory- this really needs to come to Fort Wayne, my most desired place to eat at. Cracker Barrel is really good, it is one of my favorites. And here I thought everyone had been to Dairy Queen.

Oh No

I was at a Hardee's once, but I never had their food.

There really aren't any in the Cleveland area...and I know there's none in New England!

Dairy Queen came to NYC in 2014, but I've never been there. There's one in Brooklyn, but it's not near me and there are a couple in Staten Island.

I thought everyone had White Castle, Dunkin Donuts, and Starbucks.

There's a Dairy Queen out in Levittown on Long Island, which is the one we went to (only once).

Fort Wayne does not have a White Castle but I went there once in Indy. I was not impressed, several other burger places are better. There are several Starbucks in Fort Wayne but I am not interested since I don't care for coffee.

Red Lobster is one that I have never been to - mostly because I am deathly allergic to shellfish and would probably die in mere seconds as soon as I walk in the door; the cooking odors are enough to set off my reaction.

a lot of those places I've never heard of or just don't have around here, but more specifically, places I won't go to:

White Castle - yuck.
MacDonalds - their fries and MacNuggets are OK, but not into the rest of it - never had a BigMac in my entire life.
Chick FilA - no thanks
Starbucks - over-rated and way over priced
Raising Cane's - not my thing
Waffle House - only if I want to see bitches go ratchet and fight in the parking lot
Church's Chicken - no thanks - I'll stick to Popeye's
Chuck E Cheese - now that he's all growed-up he aint got time fo us kids no mo
Chipotle - BIG no thanks, I'll take my E. Coli and Salmonella regular instead of extra-spicy - or maybe just take a pass on it altogether
Godfather's Pizza & Papa John's - I personally think both of these chains make terrible pizza and even if someone offers it for free I'll pass.

ooh - I wanted to add Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken - never going back there because:

we went through their drive-thru one Sunday afternoon - just a regular summer day, nothing special, mind you - and the line seemed to be not moving at all and when we eventually got up to the speaker I started ordering what was supposed to be enough for a meal for my sister-in-law's family and us. So I start ordering and the kids says "Nah we don't got that." I pick something else "Nah, we don't got that" - this goes on for at least three or four minutes before I ask - "well, what DO you have?" - "Oh, we is all out of chicken, but we got fries and biscuits."

so I drove off and have never been back for their mediocre chicken again. Incidentally, when we left the line was about 8 or 9 cars long - I do not understand why they did not just close if they were out of chicken. That particular restaurant has shut down completely since then.
