There's much to be said about eating local. By eating local, patrons are able to support their local economy while enjoying flavors unique to the local restaurant's style of cooking.
But sometimes, when you're in a rush, a chain restaurant can be a good option too.
For this week's Bites Nearby, instead of telling you how we feel about chain restaurants that surround us locally, we decided to let you share your reviews. The chains listed in our poll below have restaurants in Butler, Bloomingdale, Parsippany and Montville, as well as surrounding towns.
Answer which is your favorite chain and then leave a comment below to tell us why. Be sure to tell us any of your favorites we may have missed.
