Last week’s Coke vs. Pepsi poll received the most votes of any previous poll with Coke the clear winner (as if there was any way Pepsi would have won). I’m glad that the readers found the last few polls interesting enough to participate heavily in and I ask that you keep on suggesting more so that I can post them. I really fucking hate doing these every week. So go ahead and comment or e-mail your suggestions and I will roll them in as best I can.
So yesterday I was dragged to Chili’s because I didn’t want to listen to Mrs. Marcos bitch about not getting her away. Even though we called ahead an hour beforehand we had to impatiently wait for over 30 minutes because hundreds of chain-loving douchebags would rather flock to a restaurant serving overpriced nachos, shitty hamburgers, and 1 for 1 drinks disguised as 2 for 1s while good restaurants across the state continue to close in this difficult market. So, after that terrible experience I figured I’d find out which one of this genre of restaurant you prefer and why.
I talk a lot about not eating at chains and I try to convince people to stay away from the dark side but yet more often than not people continue to give their hard earned money to establishments that more or less suck and charge them an arm and a leg to eat food that’s nothing more than simply mediocre. Of these restaurants, and there are entirely too many to list so I just went with the three of the top of my head, which one do you prefer the most and why? What is it that makes you join the legions of others that would rather wait and hour or more to eat their food instead of driving across the street to some local restaurant and eat there instead?
I put up Chili’s, Applebee’s, and T.G.I. Friday’s (why the fuck do they all have an apostrophe in the name?) as well as an option for other or N/A for those of you that prefer something else or those of you–like me–that would rather gag themselves with a ninja sword than eat at those places.
Next week, when the poll ends please be sure to subtract one from the Chili’s voting because Mrs. Marcos’ vote doesn’t count anyway. In the meantime, comment on and let us know why you prefer to visit those places over other random places around town. If anything it would be good for up-in-coming restaurants and even those that have been able to compete to know what you think.
