Chipotle is probably my favorite fast food chain. I really like B-Dubs for a sit down chain as well as TGIFridays for trivia and apps. Not sure on independent place. That's something I wish I did more up here is go to independent places. Wallinga and I went to Mickey's a couple weeks ago, that's a really good little diner.

Jocelyn and I really want to join a Pub Trivia league, if only we had options for that in Grundy Center.

Do all TGIFridays do Trivia? there is a bar in CF that does it once a week but it's only pop culture. might have to look into that.

I don't know if all of them do. They typically have some kind of fun things though. The other Fridays we went to had Bingo. I think they do trivia too on another night.

Five Guys for fast food, Famous Daves for sitdown, and I'd also have to say dairy dandy just for the blizzards

I didn't know PJs because I didn't figure anyone had Papa John's as a favorite.
