  •  Chain restaurants are inherently bad ideas (6+ / 0-)

    They use very little local product, usually buy from large out of town farms and slaughter houses, transport food and supplies great distances, and suppress wages and benefits artificially. By not using local produce they increase the risk of food related illnesses and allergies. In an "ideal world" food should be grown locally and prepared and served by locals. This is what enhances the local flavors and freshness. I don't need my steak to taste the same in all fifty states, nor should it.
