Is anyone else here (like myself) a fan of good foods?

Curious what your favourite restaurant is and what the best dish you ever had there was. I try to get ideas about where to eat from hearing other people, so thanks in advance.

There's a restaurant in Rome that supposedly the birthplace of Fettucini Alfredo. I think it was called Alfredo alla Scrofa. The noodles were made there, sauce, everything and was oddly served in this huge trough-shaped bowl. It was insane, of-dreams good (and expensive).

I think my meal with ex-wife totalled $120. Money WELL SPENT. If you're ever in Rome, stop by there for a meal. :)

Fancy:
I dunno, I don't really go to fancy restaurants, but Benihana is nice. (extemely expensive though)

Mildly fancy:
Olive Garden is nice

Sit-Down:
Denny's
Bob Evan's

Steak House:
Sony's
Shony's
Roadhouse (if you can somehow manage to find one)
*Outback

Sports Bar/Grill:
T.G.I. Fridays
Flannigan's
Any really...this is probably my favorite type of restaurant (which is kind of odd because I don't like sports and I don't drink. But I do love a good Ruben or a Melt)

Almost Fast Food:
SubWay
Steak n' Shake

Buffet:
Golden Corral
Any Chinese Buffet

Fast Food:
Arby's
Chik-Fil-A

Pizza:
Domino's
Pizza Hut
Jacaranda Pizza (local place where my mom works)
Papa John's
Digiorno (:D)


*I also agree with HarryBob about Outback, its another good Steak House.

Hope this helps in some way. Its weird that I've comprised this list, though, because my family almost never goes out to eat. (And never orders)

Thank you guys for responding.

My favorite has to be Woodfire Grill in Atlanta. The tasting menu (while seasonal) is incredible. So if you don't mind spending $75 on a meal, it's totally worth it. Great ambiance and REALLY creative food.

Never ate out much growing up, but that changed once I got to college.

Rodizio Grill - local to Colorado, but any rodizio-style restaurant will have the same stuff

Lucile's Creole Cafe - My favorite breakfast joint. I usually get the Eggs Sardou: shrimp, poached eggs w/hollandaise, and creamed spinach

Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs - Hot dogs made from meats like reindeer, yak, rattlesnake, etc topped with cream cheese and caramelized onions. Delicious.

Cheba Hut - As the name implies, their sandwiches are named after slang terms for marijuana. It's an interesting atmosphere.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries - I love their bacon cheeseburger and they give you a ridiculous amount of fries.

DP Dough - Awesome calzone selection.

Chipotle/Qdoba - I think Chipotle has the overall better burrito, but Qdoba has queso so I guess it evens out.
