Five chain restaurants that should be locked up in chains

Denny's "Baconalia" is back, completely and utterly ruining one of my favorite foods, and again offering a hideous reminder of all the chain restaurant meals I wish I'd never eaten. There are plenty of decent, good and even great restaurant chains that serve up above-average food for reasonable prices, and I'm grateful for them. But there are also too many deplorable crap-shacks that dish out things that should never be served to humans.

Or dogs.

There are some meals even bacon can't help. Here are five chain restaurants I avoid at all costs.
