(User Submitted) – Americans like it creamy and meaty. In a recent survey of 5,000 of its "mystery shoppers," research firm Market Force asked respondents to rank their favorite family-oriented chain restaurants based on food quality and convenience. The Cheesecake Factory clobbered the competition with 13% (the numbers were adjusted for number of outlets) saying it was their favorite.

Next came Texas Roadhouse and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers with 8% each, followed by Olive Garden and Ruby Tuesday at 5% each. Bringing up the rear was IHOP with an underperforming 1%. For all the results and to find out if we plan to eat out more or less in the next few months, see the Restaurant News article.
