If we're talking fast food - then add in Five Guys...but seriously - what's your beef with Chipoltle?  So tasty....

I don't tend to go to many national chains - I'll do Applebees every once in a while.  Panera bread is good too....

When I'm here in Baton Rouge (where there are lots of national chains), I'm a fan of BJ's - really like their BBQ chicken chop salad.  Gotta think on this one smore more - do'nt really have a high concentration of national chains in NYC or NOLA (especially NOLA).

I just started going to Five Guys, they are alright.  A step up from most places for sure

Yea - Shake Shack is better IMO.  Same premise - upscale fast dining.  It's primarily in NYC now, but they're expanding...

Chipotle is overhyped and generally poor quality ingredients in my experience.  Five Guys has dropped in quality in the last few years also.  I get the fries there.

BJs are great.

I disagree on Chipotle, but I agree that Five Guys has dropped in quality.  The one I used to go to in Virginia was much better than the ones in NYC.  The cajun fries are fantastic though - even if they are just well cooked fries with lots of Little Tony's seasoning....

In n out doesn't count cuz it's fast food and we don't want to go there.

Edit: Meaning we don't want to take this conversation in that direction or we'll go way off topic.
I'll cut you!

You'll cut me because I suggested not starting in on a fast food tangent?

Bdubs... love that joint.  I don't care for some of the other chains like applebys, TGIF, etc.  We do panera every once in a while.

I dig chipotle.  I like Five Guys... but I hate the fucking fries.  Awful.

Red Robin is some good eatin though.  I think that's a national chain.

Chipoltle isn't fast food - it's Fast Casual.

In the fast-casual/fast-awesome category I like Chipotable, Five Guys and In-n-Out roughly the same. A little edge for the first one for having something other than burgers.
