Anybody been to Claim Jumper? That place has really tasty food, GIANT portions, and the kind of gay pseudo whatever-era-they're-trying-to-pull off decor that consumers expect from a corporate feedbag. I love the place!

DUDE! That place rules! How about that Motherload super-chocolate cake? One slice has got to weigh about 2lbs. They have the unsliced motherload cakes in the glass pastry case and the cakes are the size and shape of a beer keg! The only downside- the place is always packed and they don't take reservations- at least at the one nearest here. It's always at least an hour wait during the dinner hour, usually longer.

The food is gooooooooooood, but maybe slightly too salty. I think I was only there twice. Can't remember what I got either time but I loved it. I thnk it's a west coast only chain.

Don't sound like no west coast chain I ever heard of.

They appear to have them in every west coast state, except Oregon. Sorry, chum.

Another chain place I liked was Blackeyed Pea, which is mostly in Texas, I think. The chicken fried steak was awesome and it was the size of a frisbee.

Blackeyed Pea
They have one in one of the suburb-towns ouside Memphis, Bartlett.
Not bad for a chain meat-n-threes. It's rare around here to find a chain-type place that has the fried okra and butter-beans.

I used to like Blackeyed Pea and back in the 80's, Ruby Tuesdays was not bad.
