Thankfully, the Revolution! forces said we could keep all local restaurants, but put you in charge of picking the ONE chain for all the United States. Which one do you pick?

What'll happen is this. Once you pick the restaurant, ALL chain restaurants magically turn into THIS chain restaurant. Doesn't matter if we have it in Rochester right now or not. Boom. It's in Rochester. That's how this revolution works.

I never expected this response...but the number one choice from Rochester residents?

Waffle House! It's my favorite "joint" to find along the highway, and the breakfasts are pretty darn consistent. And The Bloodhound Gang was right, the WaffleHouseHashBrowns = a thing of beauty!

Get 'em smothered, covered, chunked, diced, peppered, capped, topped, country, or All the Way! Doesn't matter. You'll be in heaven. Can't eat potatoes? Dang. That's rough, but the rest of their food isn't bad, either. The closest is in the Detroit area, or Kansas, congratulations, Waffle House, you're moving to Rochester!

Tied for second: Red Lobster, Applebee's, and Arby's! I admit I love the Arby's French Dip and Beef and Cheddar. And they just bought Buffalo Wild Wings, too, right?

After that, it was a mixed bag.

  • Bakers Square
  • Golden Corral
  • IHOP
  • Smashburger!!!!
  • Texas Roadhouse
  • TGI Friday! (Bring it back!!!)
  • Steak and Shake

Are you cool with Waffle House as the only chain restaurant in Rochester? Then you shoulda been nicer to the Revolution and maybe they'd have put you in charge. JOKES!
