Eating It Episode 71 - LAYOFF!

This week is a little different in that we talk about the one thing we usually rail on, chain restaurants. Unfortunately as a comic, and non comic you can't always find a great hole in the wall during the day or late at night or traveling down the road so we hit on some of the chains that we enjoy eating at when we just absolutely have to. That being said, David still came out with a great story about a pizza place in Austin called Pour House Pints & Pies. Don't be fooled by the only one restaurant named, this is still a very funny and informative episode.
