    Only the corporate owned ones are closing. the franchised versions are staying open.

    Great! I wish they all would go though. Only been there once and it was the worst food I've ever gotten.

    I initially came to this thread to say something smart-mouthed along the lines of "I've never been to Bennigan's and I guess now I never will" but now that I know they have Monte Cristo's, that changes everything. I may single-handedly be able to keep them in business!

    Agreed not a fan. Been there twice both times something that was not supposed to be in my food was. And during the second visit I got a pint in an absolutley filthy pint glass. Truly "Waiting" type of stuff, gross!

    How can you forget the rasperberry dipping sauce and the powdered sugar.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    How does Ponderosa & Bonanza stay open? I guess there is enough WT to keep those places open. Remember the Ground Round?
