Chain items that are addictive as crack
While I don't dine at chains that frequently, there are some items that I simply can't quit eating once I start. Once I'm done, there's such a feeling of regret (that it's gone) and shame.
Red Lobster - cheddar/garlic biscuits
Red Lobster - Ceasar salad
Macaroni Grill - Rosemary bread
Cheesecake Factory - avocado rolls w/tamarind dipping sauce
Lone Star Steakhouse - fresh, roasted peanuts
Olive Garden - garlic bread
Outback - awesome blossom
Papa Johns - garlic dipping sauce
What are your guilty addictions?

What place still calls a chili Cheese Burrito a Chilito? Taco Bell did this as the word sounded "mexican" enough, but means 'Little Penis" in spanish slang. After a lot of laughter, TB just started calling it the chili cheese burrito.
Let's see. Addictive at chains.
1- Big Mac. I hate lettuce and can't really stand Thousand Island Dressing. But on a Big Mac, I get the attack. TI dressing also goes well on the Reuban.
2- Pancakes at Ihop. Plain with butter and syrup.
3- Mushroom Swiss at Backyard Burgers
4- Southwestern Eggrolls at Chili's.
5-goes with post I'm responding to, I've yet to have a bad mexican pizza.
6- 7 layer burrito at Taco Bell.
7- Cheesecake bites at Sonic.
8- That "bit of honey" taste of chicken tenders at Chik-F_Let...don't think I spelled it right.
9-Shrimp Alfredo at Olive Garden
10- Popeye's Red beans & Rice(Popeyes rules in regards to sides)
yeah dude. the southwestern eggrolls, oh lord. i finally learned how to make them and always havea batch on hand in the freezer, ready to be tossed in the deep fryer...but i still don't know how to make that avocado ranch :(
as for the chik fil a chicken, yes it is soooo good (seriously) but it's not honey you're tasting...it's powdered sugar in the breading. i know it sounds crazy but it's true. look it up!
Tuscan Chicken Melt from Subway. Not toasted. Hot Chicken. American cheese. Lettuce, tomato, TONS of black olives, spices, and ranch dressing. Damn. Might have to get one right now.
Well, the obvious choice is coffee from Tim Horton's. 2 Cream, 1 sugar. Yum. And, after I have the first iced drink of the summer season, I find myself craving them all the time. Iced Capp from Tim's or Mocha Frappuccino from Starbuck's.
There's a Mexican chain here called Mucho Burrito, and I find myself craving their chicken and corn quesadillas. Oh baby!
Oooh ditto on the rosemary bread.
Also for me are:
Outback - cheese fries
Panera - chocolate duo cookie with walnuts
Noodles & Co. - penne rosa with feta and olives
