Speaking of rubbish food.  Frankie & Bennyís has to be the worst chain of eateries about.  Donít understand the popularity.

Poor stuff and expensive for shit food but kids love the place! Think the menu is big so it gives families choice!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Never have been a fan. Kfc must better in my book lol.
KFC better than Nandos? Nah. I do like a KFC but Nandos is better. Always get the butterfly chicken with the macho peas.
The one near me does takeaway also!

Would always get KFC if Iím in another country... I like the chicken pieces on the bone but if you get them here they are literally dripping in grease for some reason and thatís not the case in other countries!

Frankie & Bemnyís is total muck! Also any Wetherspoons!

I'd take the odd Tennesse burger and a pint in Wetherspoons in Edinburgh Airport. Decent enough packing.

Itís a hideaway place stuck away from reality! Beautiful town with lovely architecture and of course the constant flow of Buxton spring water at an open fountain..

Great bars and decent restaurants, the locals though are inbred! Drank mainly in Buxton brewery bar. Weatherspoons was good for cheap food! Couple of great cocktail bars one dodgy nite club..

I enjoyed it though, great views around the hills and full of ramblers and tourists. Wouldnít mind going back with the wife

Aye it's a nice part of the world. I spent a month and half tramping around the Peak District years ago. Lovely around Castleton, Edale, Kinder etc. Like you I keep saying I'll go back but still haven't got around to it.

Frankie & Bennys is the most vile of all the vile chain restaurants.

Itís actually really disappointing that the premium chain restaurant concept from the States is so poorly replicated in this part of the world. Over there, Chillis, Outback, Applebeeís, Cracker Barrel, are all worth pulling over for a visit. Good, copious food and not too expensive.

When translated to the UK/Ireland, everything goes bland, yet the price goes up.

It will maybe dawn on franchisees soon that these places work best when theyíre out of town - reduced rates, and increased parking spaces - and maybe then they might spend more on ingredients.

Is that the place near the Northern Whig? If so then yes, I  had a dirty burger out of there after a few pints and it didn't touch the sides.

Lloyd Cole's hometown. His family ran a pub  there in the 1990s which I spent a hazy evening in!  ;D

Was always hard to beat Paddy Donnelly's chippy in Coalisland. And if you didn't like burgers, he had a great John Wayne supper.
Jaysus , I put away some Cowboy suppers in Paddy Donnellyís over the years, decent chicken burgers as well...
