Would you rather eat at a chain restaurant or a independent restaurant?
Depends on the food and service. Whether a restaurant is a chain or independent doesn't really matter to me. If I'm going to be spending money I want the food to be great and the service to be friendly.
My wife worked in the kitchens of a restaurant in 1971, I've never eaten in a restaurant since.
I like to try individual take aways for hamburgers for new taste in food .+ it is good to help out the smaller individual businesses !
Same for restaurants , with chains you know what it is going to taste like even before you get there.
Part of the fun of travel is to experience new taste.
Some times tho it can be handy calling into a chain for toilets & knowing that you can get a cheap ok deal.
I'm fortunate in that I've lived in large cities for most of my life that have had lots of dining options. That being said, I love supporting mom and pop independent restaurants when I'm confident in the food ingredients (I'm vegetarian). If traveling, sometimes I'll pick a chain restaurant, as you can rely on the consistency of ingredients and taste.
I love independent places. If the service and food are good, I like to support them.
I would like to say that I like independents more, but usually I'm not feeling that adventerous when it comes to my food so I go where I already know what I like and that it's safe.
For the most part, independent. I live in Athens, GA and we have TONS of independent restaurants with unique and delicious food. But I am also a sucker for Chili's and On The Border!
I do not eat in chain restaurants, multiples (locations) maybe, but not chains. The factor is chain restaurants prepared their line of products in a central location and use preservatives to get their goods to your location. The ingredients in sauces and packaged products can include all kinds of things I just don't eat. For me, it's a matter of toxicity.
I don't use packaged or prepared foods at home, so it's a personal issue with health at the forefront. I don't eat corporate food and write about it on hubpages. The whole pre-cooked, pre-packaged and chemically delivered thing is wrong for me. My former life as a restaurant owner taught me a lot about what you can and cannot deliver to the public. You need to know your source if you care about your body.

If a person establishes a restaurant, what need is that restaurant meeting? Is is food or is that too simple of an answer? Is it the experience or the convenience? Since the French Revolution, restaurants have been evolving and I think the question is interesting.

Do you eat out more than cook at home?Nothing is better than a home cooked meal, many people choose to eat out for convenience and miss that family time spent at the dinner table.

I dont know what country you are in but KFC in england is just like fast food and to me, fast food is rubbish. Too much unhealthy overpowering sauces and the chicken is always coated in huge amounts of fat.Give me a plain barbecued chicken leg any day.
