Applebee's: Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp

For customers of this iconic and ever-evolving chain, nothing embodies "eatin' good in the neighborhood" quite like the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp — a heap of Cajun-seasoned chicken and blackened shrimp in garlic butter, served on a sizzling cast-iron platter along with sauteed mushrooms, onions and crispy red potatoes. Since December 2015, Applebee's has served more than 46 million of these dishes.

Red Lobster: Ultimate Feast

Come for the often-imitated, never-duplicated Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Stay for the Ultimate Feast, Red Lobster's fan-favorite entree. In this case, "feast" is not hyperbole: It's a platter heaped with tender Maine lobster tail, steamed North American snow crab legs and garlic shrimp scampi — in addition to butterflied, hand-breaded, golden fried shrimp. Remember to save room for the parade of all-included salad, coleslaw and biscuits.

California Pizza Kitchen: Original BBQ Chicken Pizza

California Pizza Kitchen offers over 20 different pies on its menu — four of them gluten-free! But the most popular, hands down, is the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, invented at the chain's first location in Beverly Hills in 1985. The hand-tossed crust, made from a top-secret recipe, is a canvas for CPK's legendary BBQ sauce plus smoked Gouda, red onions and fresh cilantro.

LongHorn Steakhouse: Rib-Eye Steak

LongHorn serves more than 10 million fresh (and never-frozen) rib-eye steaks annually — and this item's popularity is no surprise. Each location nationwide has a team of certified Grill Masters who specialize in selecting the right cut, pairing it with one of six signature seasoning blends and grilling it to each guest's taste. Diners can order the rib eye either of two ways: the hand-trimmed, 12-ounce rib eye or the signature fire-grilled Outlaw Ribeye — an 18-ounce, perfectly marbled bone-in cut.
