    Not sure if they still do it, but the DQ Blizzard, Mississippi Mud..was a treat for me.

      Mmmm...Cinnabon! How can something so wrong be so right? I do like a dessert at Chili's. Not sure what its called, but its a mini chocolate bundt cake with a molten chocolate center that oozes out when you break into it. Very tasty!

              I love the Cherry Turnover at Arby's - absolutely one of the best turnovers. I also love the fried apple pies at KFC. The strawberry pie and hot fudge cake at Shoney's. And a great banana split at Dairy Queen.

                    I have to agree about the Cheesecake Factory, not much better then that for a chain.

                      French Silk pie, most definitely, or, even better is their Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme. As for their entrees, speaking as someone who used to be married to a man who insisted on eating dinner before ANY dessert, even one that had 2,500 calories per bite, you're right, they're pretty awful. XD

                      Aside from that, my votes go to:
                      Stuffed jalapenos from Jack in the Box, all the better for having only one Weight Watcher point per pepper.
                      Breadsticks from Fazoli's, the ultra-greasy, salty ones that have been under the others in the server's basket.
                      Tofu and Eggplant from Panda Express

                      Oh, and I still have glorious memories from when I used to work at Baskin Robbins: A malt, made from German Chocolate Cake ice cream, no syrup, and at least triple malt powder... Ahhh

                          the queso at "ON THE BORDER" is better tasting than most mexican or tex-mex places. When I moved to Texas I weas told that the difference between tex-mex and mexican is tex-mex uses velveeta in the queso instead of real cheese.

                            Del Taco rules!!!! And yes, when they have their 3 tacos for $99 days! But their Chicken Soft Taco. It's very creamy and moist.

                              A Sonic Coconut Cream Pie shake, which I only get to have about once a year when we head from Minnesota to Bristol for the NASCAR race.

                                  DQ mocha moolatte, with the whipped cream and the extra chocolate stirred in. Also the food with the most politically incorrect name in modern times.

                                      There is no Friendly's here in East TN, but when I go back home to New England, I always get a Reese Peanut butter cup sundae with hot fudge and hot peanutbutter sauce. And chopped almonds, not walnuts.

                                      Around here, OCharley's makes a good caramel pie. Everyone makes a hot fudge brownie/ice cream dessert, kind of eh. But Gatlinburg has a place called The park Grille with great fresh made desserts

                                          If we're talking just desserts from chain restaurants I'd have to go with the Paradise Pie from Chili's, the bikini banana dessert from Applebee's that they don't make anymore and a good old fashioned hot fudge sundae with peanuts from Mickey D's!

                                            I must agree with Tippy Lee on Dairy Queen (I'd wish they bring back the Cotton Candy Blizzard though).

                                              LOL, you sure you don't like cinnamon there, buddy?! ^^

                                              Cheesecake Factory: appetizer of corn cakes with avocado

                                              Hmmmm, oddly no desserts. But I do like the McD's sundaes...

                                                  Baker's Square French Silk Pie & their cinnamon roll french toast (but I have to take my own real maple syrup); Cheesecake Factory White Chocolate Caramel LatteĀ® Cheesecake; Noble Roman's breadsticks with nacho cheese dip; Fazoli's greasy, garlicky breadsticks; Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits ... I'm noticing a trend here ...

                                                    Currently my every-morning, almost-can't-skip-it is an Egg McMuffin meal from you-know-where. I put the hash brown patty on the sandwich.

                                                    More of a treat item is the Taco Bell Empanada -- man, is that sweet and gooooooooooood!

                                                          Five pages and not one nod to the A&W Root Beer Float? SLACKERS!

                                                          I also do Hardee's for big burgers and shakes with ice cream in them, and will do Burger King when whoppers are 2 for $4, which they are now. McD's had a double quarter pounder last summer when Big Beautiful Mich was out of town, and the dog and I would split one. Dog got the lower patty, I got the rest, then we'd share fries. I also liked McD's peppermint sundaes, which are a Christmas thing, and orange shakes, which sort of taste like children's aspirin, but good.

                                                            There's Little Caesars all over Detroit (obviously). Earlier this year, Mike Ilitch announced that he plans to expand the franchise again.
