Absolutely !

I dig the small town FAMILY RESTAURANTS big time !

I look for them everywhere I go as well and they are getting harder to find all the time. The fast food chains are killing them like Walmart does to every town they show up in.

The reason I like Olive Garden is because they are no longer in Canada.
It has been likely 15 years since they closed and likely getting close to 8-9 years since Outback Steakhouse left Canada.

Like you, when you see a Hardees, you want to stop in. Same with me and Outback or Olive Garden.
I have eaten at enough of them in the last few years that I have no problem passing them now.

Why I mention Olive Garden is because some of my PCS friends also like Olive Garden, like Dan Skivolocke for example, and when we get together I know we will have a great time at the Olive Garden. More hanging out with my friends then the food but those bread sticks and salad are a great bonus !

Family Restaurants are a tradition like Diners and Drive-ins. Hard to come by these days but they sure are a welcome sight when seen today.


Enjoy the drive and dine on every road trip you take brother !
Darren

No Outback in Canada? No wonder I don't stay. I love Outback.

Trade Tim Hortons for Outback? Not a good deal.

You can get anywhere within 10 minutes in Rochester! You have to remember that Rochester is a small city. There is a very good local Italian restaurant that I believe is called "Victoria's", if anyone is interested. Beats the heck out of the Olive Garden.

Just a quick note to let you all know that a bunch of us did have all 3 of our favorite places to eat !

Outback, Olive Garden and Jimmy Johns !

Jimmy Johns delivered to the PCS parking lot on a few occasions.

Rochester Rocks ! ...and tastes good too !

Well, I didn't get to go to Outback with Darren, but I did go to Red Lobster, finally, with John Royark and Christie Anderson. I intended to go to RL with them last year in Milwaukee but we could never work it out, so this year, we went (and Bill Donnell went with us, too). Whew!

So, Darren, next year, we'll go to Outback - I'm sure there's one in Houston!

If I'm able to make it to Houston, the funeral home where my car started out is now a restaurant. That's where I'm going.

If you are ever going to be near Buffalo or Niagara Falls, let me know and dinner at Outback is on me brother !

If it has to be next year, fine but I would rather see you sooner and Outback will be a treat.
