No one with a soul that remains! And don't even think about Cracker Barrel.

I disagree. Red Lobster and their Cheddar Bay Biscuits could only be the work of Lucifer himself!

Must be, they're the only thing worth eating at that Godforsaken place. I was in a department that used to have monthly lunch meetings at Red Lobster. This was in a beach town with so many better seafood options. I died a little every time I had to go.

Applebee's is closing lots of locations and other chains are suffering. The end of banal calorie laden fake food may be near.

I've deleted several off-topic and/or snarky posts.

Thanks for your cooperation going forward

I think a lot of it has to do with people simply having less disposable income than they used to. Cooking at home is a lot less expensive--especially with kids--and for the rare days one goes out to eat, one expects quality and an experience far better than what they can pull off themselves. A similar phenomenon is happening with a lot of brick and mortar retail as people get better service/pricing shopping online.
