Maybe a good time to reorganize "local reviews"?

Local Reviews and Chain Reviews?

How would you treat places like Rib Crib, that are local AND chains?

Third category: Local Chains.

I can't imagine that this would create any confusion at all.

Then we could have hundreds of sub categories.

What exactly is there to report about chain anyhow?  I think it's pretty tough to eat and bland even though it's a good source of iron, so I avoid it.

How many constitutes a chain?  Is there a cutoff?

If the original wants a franchise fee and offers those franchises outside the local area, then to me it's considered a chain. There may well be other criteria for other people.  I know Rib Cribs exist in the KC Metro.  It's a chain to me.  Rib Crib does have a franchise fee.

Can't stand Rib Crib.

We should probably have a different review criteria too. . . perhaps just compare them to each other. . . Roll Eyes 

I know several local spots that could never compete with some chains, and several chains that could never hold a candle to the local spots.  I'm not sure that segregation of the review process based on business model has any value.

I love Bodean's, but I also love Bonefish Grill.  I see them as being able to compete equally in the marketplace.

Add a category for really bad.  Put Mazzio's in it.
They have so completely lost their way....ate there Saturday.  Big mistake.  Should have gone to McDonald's and gotten something edible.

Why?

This forum has two reviews categories covering restaurants:

"Local Reviews" and
"Restaurant Reviews"

Seems redundant.

I think "Local Reviews" original intent was a general catch all for any business you wanted to review.
