    The other is that I have small kids still, and they will eat their food. Sadly the same thing means, we don't go to Thai or Indian or even Japanese places with the whole family, because I can't afford to bring the kids to eat at a place where they'll barely touch their food. Ruby's often puts out coupons that make an occasional trip the equivalent of a fast food trip.

    THAT - plus it's rare to me that a local place *REALLY* beats out a franchise in quality. Too many places in this area overcharge for lousy service and mediocre food.

    There is that. I only had one kid and took her to all sorts of restaurants so she knew how to act. Funny, she works at one for them now!

    That being said, I think a big turn off for Ruby Tuesday's was when she was three and said she had a tummy ache. Daddy was carrying her and she proceeded to barf all over the foyer.

They could have done it the old fashion way like Linda's Cafe does, write it down and the cook reads it. I guess everything these days is blamed on the computer.

    I know the general public is addicted to their cell phones which is a form of a computer. But, now if the computer is down, you can't eat either! (lol)!
    you sat and waited more than 2 hours to eat at an Applebee's? That's unacceptable I don't care if they're using an abacus to run their business. I would have been gone after 40 minutes.

    'Local' sadly enough just means 'staight off the Sysco truck'.

    Which Applebee's are you talking about? Prince Frederick location?

    The Applebee's in PF is just ok for a chain restaurant, but the Ruby Tues has nasty food and the place smells.

    Chains have a place, they should be consistent. SHOULD.

    I don't know what "local" places you are going to, but most are worse than the chains.
    The chain locations are subject to two inspections, the county and the corporate, they typically cleaner - at least the kitchen.

    I just had the Hibachi Steak and Shrimp from Golden Chicken (PF) and it was awesome! The place isn't much to look at but my lunch was delicious!

    That would probably come out spoiled and funky too... the place sucks.
