  • (jazzy piano music)

  • - (laughing) Now, it's like on you.

  • Hold on, though, let me get it for you.

  • - [Sara] No!

  • No one asked for it, but here we are.

  • - We're just pumping out those videos.

  • - Pumping 'em.

  • - This is a wobbly.

  • - This table's a wobble. - This table's fucking wobbly.

  • Anyways, so we were thinking about the world.

  • - She bad.

  • - Sometimes, I'm like, will we get through this?

  • - But you know what, there's good things too.

  • - There are good things.

  • And that's why we're here.

  • - We're gonna restore..

  • are you looking at that camera?

  • - (laughs) I don't know what camera.

  • - [Sara] Look at the

  • main camera. - I was looking at you, okay.

  • I'm Ella.

  • - I'm Sara.

  • - And we're here to

  • - [Both] restore your faith.

  • - Chain restaurants.

  • - Chain restaurants!

  • - Bad rap.

  • - They get a bad rap.

  • Rep, rap?

  • - Rap.

  • - Rap?

  • - [Sara] It's a rap.

  • - They get a bad rap.

  • They're a little bit unhealthy.

  • - A little unhealthy, sure.

  • But anywhere that sells

  • curly fries by the pound is unhealthy.

  • - [Ella] That's gonna be unhealthy, I mean.

  • - It's just gonna be unhealthy.

  • - Also, you know, might edge out

  • a mom and pop place,

  • your local place. - [Sara] Sometimes,

  • you know what, that probably happens.

  • - I think it does happen, but...

  • - There's some good things, too.

  • - There's a lot of good things.

  • - And I feel like we should acknowledge those things.

  • Have you ever been on a long road trip?

  • There's nothing for miles around.

  • Suddenly, an oasis.

  • A Cracker Barrel.

  • - [Ella] Oh my God.

  • I love Cracker Barrel!

  • I'm so glad you mentioned this.

  • - And you know exactly what's going to be there

  • 'cuz it's the same stuff they have

  • at every single Cracker Barrel you've ever seen.

  • - I mean, I practically have chain restaurant menus

  • memorized and I know what I'm gonna get.

  • - Here's another thing about them.

  • They're very, they're very nostalgic.

  • - [Ella] Mmm hmm.

  • - [Sara] There was a time when we didn't know

  • that it was bad to eat at chain restaurants all the time.

  • There was a time.

  • - And nobody talked about how much butter

  • may or may not be in the hash browns.

  • - No one talked about it.

  • Now, the calories are on the menu for the better.

  • It is good.

  • - [Ella] It is good.

  • - But I'm just saying, there's something nostalgic.

  • When you're an adult,

  • you don't go to as many chain restaurants.

  • You're just not really there that much.

  • So, when you do go back it's like,

  • "Hallelujah, baby."

  • - [Ella] Okay, every chain restaurant

  • has an amazing drink selection.

  • You get your shakes.

  • You get your smoothies.

  • You get your alcoholic beverages.

  • - [Sara] They'll just be like,

  • "Oh, here's a red, white, and blue

  • Star Spangled Spazzler."

  • And you're like, "What is that?"

  • - [Ella] "What the fuck is that?

  • - "I don't know, but I'll take four, thank you very much."

  • - And they're beautiful.

  • They come with fruit and probably a novelty cup.

  • And it's definitely like $4.99.

  • - They also have so much variety.

  • - [Ella] So much.

  • - More than you can shake one of those buzzer things

  • at that alert you when your table's ready.

  • - (laughs)

  • - Instead of a stick, I'm saying one of those buzzer.

  • - Like, the light-up thing?

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • - That the lights go around?

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • - They got those.

  • - Ew!

  • - They got those.

  • - The excitement when those things start buzzing.

  • - Oh my god, they're buzzing in your hand

  • and you're like, "Yeah." - "I get tea, Cola, fries."

  • - Just the idea of chain restaurants.

  • They've created probably the best invention

  • in the past decade.

  • The Blooming Onion.

  • It's delicious and it's super good.

  • And I love it.

  • Ranking time, baby.

  • - Oh, we're gonna get into it.

  • - [Sara] You love luxury.

  • - [Ella] I love luxury.

  • I love a good cheesecake.

  • There's a lot of options.

  • Weirdly, they have good wine selection.

  • A really good wine selection.

  • - Friendly's is not something that's everywhere.

  • It's an East Coast chain.

  • You can also see the ice cream in the store,

  • the Friendly's brand ice cream.

  • And the reason that I'm choosing Friendly's

  • is not only they have kind of an old-school flare,

  • but also, they make little ice cream clowns and monsters.

  • You can get little scoop of ice cream,

  • they'll put little Reese's Pieces eyes on it,

  • and it's the cutest little thing in the entire world.

  • It makes me so happy.

  • (drum roll noises)

  • - My number one favorite chain restaurant is IHOP.

  • I love going to breakfast,

  • but I also hate waiting.

  • - Breakfast requires a lot of waiting, usually.

  • - It requires so much waiting.

  • I love pancakes.

  • I love their hash browns.

  • They are so good.

  • I really like the Swedish crepes.

  • I don't know why.

  • I think they're great.

  • It's just one of my favorite places.

  • - [Sara] Do you want to hear my number one?

  • - I do.

  • - Are you sure?

  • Okay.

  • My number one favorite chain restaurant,

  • it's gotta be Rainforest Cafe.

  • - Oh my God, yes.

  • - Here's the thing.

  • I can go to a restaurant and feel like I'm in a theme park?

  • Yeah, I'm gonna do it.

  • It's truly incredible.

  • There is a rainstorm every hour,

  • inside the restaurant.

  • There's giant butterflies on the walls.

  • The food is okay.

  • It's not, it's fine.

  • - (laughs)

  • - The food is fine.

  • I'm not going there for the food.

  • I'm there going for the ambiance.

  • - You're going for the experience.

  • - I'm going for the experience of feeling

  • like I'm in the rainforest.

  • And I've been to the real rainforest.

  • Humble brag.

  • - And it?

  • - And it's not similar,

  • but, (laughs) it's not the same.

  • But, it's still pretty cool that you can look at the wall

  • and there's like a jaguar robot,

  • and he's just moving his mouth like...

  • - [Ella] They move.

  • - That's what they look like.

  • - The rainstorm that happens is pretty cool.

  • - [Sara] It's pretty magical.

  • They have thunder and actual water pouring from the ceiling.

  • - It's really magical.

  • - [Sara] It's great.

  • Kids are there having a great time.

  • I'm having a great time.

  • - [Ella] I think one time I was like hungover there

  • and it was amazing, actually.

  • - [Sara] Yeah.

  • - It was like dark and cool.

  • - [Sara] Yeah.
