    TGI Friday's is the only one I've been to. As such all I could do was a lodge a protest vote.

Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."--General Sir Charles James Napier

    perhaps you'd like us to buy you a dinner at the other two places in order to rethink your vote?

    I haven't been to any of them in at least a decade. In the mid-to-late 90s, I slightly preferred Applebee's; they had a more varied menu and even seemed to have the occasionally healthy item on it. Plus my 5-year-old daughter preferred it, and that sealed the deal.

    We call Applebee's "Crapplebees." My brother used to insist that they made their steaks out of cow anuses. Then he had to work there a while and confirmed for me that they just used really low-quality sirloins.

    They certainly epitomize many americans idea of what a restaurant should be. I'm not sure I 've ever eaten at any of them but I felt free to vote my opinion.

    Of those three I would only eat at Applebees. Used to really like applebees, but they've gone way down hill in the last couple years. I don't think I've seen any of the three since I moved to Houston (a blessing)

    I'm surprised so many people have strong opinions about them. In my mind they are all exactly the same.

    Of those three TGIF's is the best because they have better drink specials. All three are over priced and not very good chain restaurants though.

    Olive Garden > Chili's > Ruby Tuesday > Applebee's > Bennigan's > TGIF

    TGIF used to be much better, but they went way downhill in the last decade or so.

    Ruby Tuesday's food isn't too bad, but IMHO the ambiance sucks. Get it to go.

    Oliver Garden is IMHO generic Italian. It's tolerable, and isn't really bad, but I really prefer my Italian food to have a lot more flavor than they offer. I'd just as soon take my spice rack with me and "edit" the food.

    Chili's is okay, unless the table next to you is full of wasted college kids, and then, well, suffice it to say dinner won't taste very good. I give it a solid meh.

    Applebee's is just mediocre, sub-standard food. The last time I went there, when I asked for a standard variety of salad dressing, the response was "Uh uh, we don't got I-talian. Whaddaya think we are, Olive Garden?" Nuff' said.

    And TGI Friday's is just awful all around. Blech.
    I had a college roommate who took every one of his dates there, which explains why he's still single.
