Exactly. Years ago I had guests ask me where the nearest Waffle House was because they'd been dying to try one and now had the chance to.

Plus sometimes a chain is the good choice for dinner. Years and years ago we were in rural Illinois and the town we stopped for the night had 2 restaurants: the local bar and Pizza Hut. Well, my dad doesn't like pizza much so we headed to the bar. Yeah, that looked like it had last been cleaned in the Eisenhower administration. Pizza Hut it was.
