I'm not gonna lie. I ******* hate hooters. Every time I go there I either have a bad day or a bad experience. It's a curse. Not to mention their food is ****.

PF Chang's
Fogo de Chao

PF Chang's is incredible, never been to Fogo de Chao but I really want to hit it up. Brazilian steakhouse, right? I'm pretty sure there's one in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore and I'll be down there for a weekend in a few weeks, might have to try and coerce my friend into going there.

Back home, DiTondo's and Pano's for you Buffalo People. Towne Restaurant, Kentucky Greg's, and Shango is also way up there. Here I don't eat out much but there's this nifty meat pie place on the east side that's pretty good

There is a nice, little Italian place I like to take my wife every now-and-then call "Carabas". Tomorrow is her birthday so I will probably take here there.
If it with our 3 children, we aren't that picky and the fact that my children know how to act in public helps keep our options open.

I'm surprised you have time to post on her with how much you must be boning your wife to have 3 kids.

One of the best burrito places Ive ate at and becoming one of my favorite restaurants. If you live in Texas and Sarf tells me they have a place in California, you have to go and try it. Their nachos and burritos are soo good.

Its like chipotle but way better, for me at least.

I would probably say Red Lobster. The ultimate feast for 25 dollars is ******* phenomenal. Other than that no place stands out above the rest. I must start going to more restaurants.

But anyways as for my favorite restaurant I will have to go with La Tasca. It is a place from my home town in which I had my favorite meal of all time. It is a Tapas place with incredible sangria.

Byrnes Tavern in Philly. The wings are the best I've ever had and the Hot Roast Beef in unbelieveable. Fogo is great to, kudos to whoever mentioned that. The Capital Grille is also great but also more pricey than Fogo so yeah.

Artichoke's on E 14th and 1st Ave is perhaps the best place in NYC for a slice of sicilian. Also, the best damn artichoke and spinach slice ever

I've only been to the one in Great Neck, but I've heard the one in Brooklyn is better. I can't even imagine how that's possible.

Well you know about the massive amounts of steak they give you haha. But all the servers there have been working there for like 20+ years and really know their stuff. They know NY so well and they are pretty much always down for conversation.

I was shocked when I went there that they don't use any electronic money counting or anything. At the bar they still ring people using the original cash register with a big bell on it from like the 30s or whatever.

I, luckily, two minutes from one here in town and there are 4 inside city limits haha. I always get the 3 tacos with the pork and every thing on them that doesnt cost extra extra. Also, bantx, if you want a tip, you can sub the shredded cheese for queso. WIN.

My favorite place though is the Coppell Deli. If you are a Cowboys fan and it's a Monday morning, there is a great shot that you will see a player ordering this for everyone to eat during film session:

I agree. The waitresses at Hooters think they deserve a 20% tip when they do nothing. My water is always empty for quite some time while the waitress hits on 50 year olds because they think they are the ones more likely to give bigger tips.
