Oh, actually I have once or twice, but didn't consider it worth mentioning. I mean, all I've ever had from there is fries. And maybe a soda.

Oh wait, I just remembered I've been to the McDonald's in Zürich. It was better than in America, especially to three Americans who hadn't been home in months!

Better make an edit, then.

I'm also kinda surprised that you never went to the Hard Rock Cafe or Planet Hollywood, what with all the traveling you do.

This list should have more chains. I've never even heard of some of the chains listed. I saw In-and-Out for the first time in my life about a month ago when I went down to San Diego. I thought it was just a made up chain they used in Big Lebowski. Anyway, these ten should be added to make an even 60, I think!

Applebee's
Baskin-Robbins
Chili's
Cracker Barrel
Dunkin Donuts (Krispy Kreme and Tim Horton's are listed, but no Dunkin??)
IHOP (You can't list Denny's without this, really)
Max & Erma's
Panda Express
Popeyes
Starbucks

Y'know what? You're right! I added all those, plus some that tracerj suggested in her post, plus a few more I thought of while editing it to bring the total to an even 72.
