This is a good point.

When we go to the US, we often make our meal choices to satisfy our curiosity about restaurants and chains we see in American advertisements on television or through TV and movies.

I had to go to the Cheesecake Factory because of the Big Bang Theory.

My family stopped at the Cracker Barrel because of its reputation among those travelling.

I needed to take my family to a Golden Corral just to show them.

I do want to go to a Waffle House, a Sonic, a White Castle, a Big Boy and a Red Robin, all because I've seen them on TV and movies.
