I have read several posts that talk about how bad chain restaurants are and how they are "taking over." Really? That is the type of talk that is typical of the average southern "afraid of change" attitude. We have had mom and pop shops around here for years, YEARS. Most of them have done nothing but serve mediocre food at terrible prices. We need competition. We need a starbucks. We need a pf changs. We need a hooters. We need a macaroni grill. Chains are not a bad thing. If they do well, fine, thats what people want. If they dont, so be it. Let the people decide.
