    1. I would own Chick-Fil-a, because it is delicious. I would open later.

    2. Red Robbin, so I could have one close to me.

    3. Texas De Brazil, so I could eat for free lol :D I would add free refills

    4.In and Out Burger, so I could expand throughout the US

    1. Chick-fil-a - Open that bitch 7 days a week, 24 hours a day just because if I owned them I would for all the times I have walked into the food court wanting chick fil a and it has been a sunday, or driven past it at 2 am and they are closed when i was workin grave shift.

    2. BWW - I would make sure all NHL Games are available all the time and not take 30 min to change the damn channel... same goes for all game request.. it just grinds my gears when it takes them forever to change the damn channel

    3.Any Fancy resturant should have bigger portions.. i hated it in Vegas when i got like a 6 oz steak for liek $50

    4. ill figure out something for this later..

    You are way closer to Texas De Brazil that I am but I would build a Drive thru Texas De Brazil. I would be rich.:eek:

    But On my side of my little town we really need a Pizza place, Like THe Pizza Shoppe In KCK or Streets of NY in Phoenix. The places here suck. If I had the know how I would do it.

    none yet ...
    get out of the house once in a while kids ...




    KATZ's DELICATESSEN, Lower East Side of Manhattan, Houston at Ludlow Street

    why? the last place left in Manhattan that makes its own pastrami on the premises, the slicers have been in the family for generations, the food is STELLAR and they are always packed, pulling in CASH hand over fist

    no one does it better, there's no reason to go anywhere else

    "I'll have what she's having"


    PJ CLARKE's, Third Avenue at 55th, NYC

    why? PACKED ... PACKED until 3AM every damn day

    amazing drinks, amazing atmosphere, one of the oldest bars in Manhattan and in the country, an original holdout going back for generations

    great raw bar ... oysters and clams, famous burgers, and an a shell steak that is out of this world ... that's a NY Sirloin Strip for you tourists out there

    it's the place to go, to see and be seen, great staff, and making mad money ... mad money


    BURGER JOINT in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien, 56th between 6th and 7th Avenues

    why? OLD SCHOOL, amazing quality beef, they do only one thing, burgers and fries, there's a line out the door, power room, always packed, and sucking hard cold cash out of NY's power brokers ALL DAY LONG


    JOHN'S OF BLEECKER STREET - NY PIZZERIA in The Village

    John's is doing it right, if you're only going to eat pizza once, this is the place to eat it, again, it's perfect, it's always packed, and taking cash all damn day long

    PETER LUGER'S - BROOKLYN

    why? again, CASH IS KING. try to get in without a reservation, hell, there's even a wait with one. hands down, best steakhouse in the USA. oh, and another thing ... CASH!!!


    let's switch coasts

    APPLE PAN

    why? there's only one burger joint in West LA, and everybody knows it's APPLE PAN. Burgers and Pie ... there's other items on the menu, but it's burgers and pie six days a week, and there's always a wait, and they only take CASH ... what's that ... ? CASH!

    JOHNNIE'S PASTRAMI, Culver City

    why? they serve hundreds of pounds of pastrami and corned beef daily
    there's never ending line of folks dining in and taking out ... they're moving this stuff from dawn until dusk, all day long, and it's virtually all cash, but not entirely. it's been here forever and it's not going anywhere. the owner is printing money. the ancient son of a bitch is on death's door, but he's rich as the pharaohs ... combined ... they do it right

    VERSAILLES, Culver City

    why? LA's Cuban joint, there's multiple locations now, but they're printing a mint on garlic roasted chicken and black beans. always packed, keeping it simple, keeping loyal patrons happy from the Valley to the South Bay, roasting chicken and pork, and the occasional Vaca Frita (fried cow), it's all smothered in garlic and onions, the Cuban girlies are beautiful, and they're getting rich on chicken and black beans ... it's a damn cash cow ... these guys know what they're doing



    i may have missed the spirit of the thread, but these joints on both coasts rock, get it right, and are rolling in the green stuff ... CASH

    i travel North America, i don't drink or take drugs, so my vices, when i'm not breaking the law on my motorcycle, are food and women

    among other things, i'm a professional eater, hit these places, and you'll know that i'm speaking the truth
