When traveling, do you look for the normal chain restaurants, or the locally owned ones?

I like finding the local chains if possible!

  • I like good food --I prefer independents. I love the internet -- I can get local commentary on distant restaurants, and even make reservations in advance!

  • I tried one local restaraunt and i was good. It was in Montana. But other than that I go to chain restaraunts. I just trust the chains more when I am in a strange place.

  • I definitely go for the chains unless I have a local that takes me someplace. Otherwise I just can't trust em, i've ended up in way too many greasy and gross joints to go there anymore, my stomach just can't handle it, lol.
