The reports evaluated the country’s 45 biggest dining chains across the country. The critics then used the sample menus seen on Ownthemeal.com to calculate dinner prices. The report also included breakfast meals where they serve all-day breakfast, while pizza prices were included for personal, small and medium pizza prices. Staffers then rated their personal experience at each restaurant.

Top-named chains like Applebee’s, Olive Garden and Red Lobster failed to make the list.
