Best Restaurant Bread

Another string of posts about the bread served at restaurants inspired me to think of my favorites in terms of the bread that is offered with meals at any and all types of restaurants. Given the national perspective, what chains or big time restaurants do you think offer the best bread/chips/snacks delivered to the table?

The first things that come to my mind are:

Bread platter at Olives
Assorted bread from Mesa Grill
Cheesecake Factory pumpernickel bread
Red Lobster rolls
Jose Tejas fresh tortilla chips
(Id like to add a few Jersey italian restaurants with the fresh baked breads)

  1. Ohhh, I know the haters will come down on me (I hate the place but my Grandma makes me go sometimes), but those rolls at Red Lobster are good!

    Also the bread at Atlantic Grill with the Strawberry butter, yummm!

      3rd the rolls at Red Lobster.

      I also like the bread at Lucille's, but only because it comes with that apple butter.

      There's a spot by my parents' house in La Mirada called El Ranchito that does amazing flour chips/salsa and fresh made corn tortillas. A lot of times I don't even really eat my entree, and I tend to eat a lot...part of being a young male I guess.

        I agree. The rolls that Read Lobster are wonderful.

      2. I love the rosemary herb bread with olive oil at Macaroni Grill!!

        1. The bread at Lottawotta Creek in Fairview Heights, IL

            1. The Cheesecake Factory does not have pumpernickel bread, just plain whole wheat. Its not chocolate bread, its not brown bread, or rye or pumpernickel. Just plain ol' whole wheat bread.
              Don't ask me how I know this...
