Name a restaurant chain/franchise that to you, you can’t explain how they’re still in existence… I’ll start with mine, Texas Roadhouse
To call it “the poor man’s outback steakhouse” is insulting to poor men.

Outback probably just ekes out a #1 from me w/ Texas Roadhouse right behind, but don’t sleep on the poor man’s Texas Roadhouse: Logan’s. The flour is mixed with crack, I swear, how easy you just inhale a basket of their bread.
