Zaxby’s is a fast-food chain that serves chicken wings, chicken fingers, sandwiches, and salads. Luckily for us, they’re only located in the South.
Rumor has it that Oklahoma is already closing down several of their Zaxby’s restaurants. You can keep this one southerner; the rest of the U.S. is already flooded with subpar chicken joints.
Chuck E. Cheese
Chuck E. Cheese was the closest thing to heaven to every 90's American kid. Everyone wanted to have their birthday party there so they could gain cool points from their peers. Their pizza, games...what else would you need, right?
Wrong! It's not until you get older and have to go to a Chuck E. Cheese as an adult that you question your taste as a child. The pizza is below average, and what the heck is up with that giant rat walking around? Get me out of here!
Moe's Southwest Grill
If you're from the south, you're familiar with the "Welcome to Moe's!" greeting you get as soon as you step foot in one of a Moe's chains. There's nothing like that southern hospitality... but there is something like...real Tex-Mex! And with all due respect, you won't find that at Moe's.
They probably won't be going out of business anytime soon because the locals love it. But as for the rest of us, you might as well settle for Taco Bell.
Duck Donuts started as a small niche doughnut shop in Duck, North Carolina. The chain's popular for its customizable, made-to-order doughnuts, but also for their other baked goods. Duck Doughnut had expanded to over 80 locations across the U.S., and like other small restaurant chains that expanded... the product just isn't the same anymore.
Fans have complained that the dough has a different texture, and their iconic coffee tastes different as well. And get this- they're not even based in Duck anymore, but in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania! So maybe it's the State's fault.
Blimpie has always been the weaker Subway in our opinion, so it's not surprising that other consumers think similarly. The lettuce always looks old, and the tomatoes are soggy. At least they toast their bread a bit to give the illusion that it's fresh. The best items on their menu are the cookies, but they can't even take credit for them because they're Pillsbury's.
Really, get it together, Blimpie. Don't you want customers?
