I find it very strange there are no Chilis in OR/WA. I never noticed this.

But there are a lot of better options..

I don't understand your obsession with these restaurant playgrounds, but please tell me you at least knew about:
1750 N Yellowstone Hwy, Idaho Falls, ID 83401

This one had electric things that took tokens you received with food purchase, but it now appears to have an indoor play structure: 2325 E 17th St, Idaho Falls, ID 83401
(also, the 2 locations noted as "Camas, OR" are in Portland, OR)

I was wondering when I would get confronted about this obsession. What did you notice from what I wrote?? When did 1750 N Yellowstone Hwy, Idaho Falls, ID 83401 have a play area??

Sorry for this obsession. I know I need to cut down on my research on this topic. It isn't the most healthy of obsession.

I believe that is why Chili's doesn't operate in the Pacific Northwest, which I originally thought was strange. I really enjoy the $10 dollar deal at Chili's. It has inspired us to visit Chili's often after not having been there in 10 years.

Has it attracted customers in Folsom who previously visited McDonald's across the street for the amazing play area they recently removed: https://haydenbusinessblog.blogspot.com ... urant.html. I assume they are still planning on installing a new play area. But it has been almost two months since they removed it.
Chili's used to be in Portland. It was owned by the same franchiser who owned all the Burger Kings in the area. I think he went through a divorce, lost the Burger Kings and couldn't find a buyer for the Chilli's so he shut them down.
Were the Burger King's mentioned in Portland the locations that have the empty outdoor patio areas that appear to be where playgrounds were at, but I can't find any info about them having existed. Did the Portland Burger King franchises take out their outdoor play areas in the 2000-2001 period. How long were they in existence for?? Does anyone have pictures of when they were there? Were these areas built just for a patio?

Locations:
632 NE Weidler St, Portland, OR 97232
5038 SE Powell Blvd, Portland, OR 97206
12044 SE Division St, Portland, OR 97266
10010 SE Stark St, Portland, OR 97216 (with a phone booth. That would have been an amazing combo to have in the day.)
12225 N Jantzen Ave, Camas, OR 97217
9816 N Whitaker Rd, Camas, OR 97217
990 NW Eastman Pkwy, Gresham, OR 97030
2335 SE Burnside Rd, Gresham, OR 97080
11590 SE 82nd Ave, Portland, OR 97086
5513 NE Gher Rd, Vancouver, WA 98662
7625 NE Hwy 99, Vancouver, WA 98665
11539 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard, OR 97223
18975 SW Tualatin Valley Hwy, Aloha, OR 97006
17971 SW McEwan Rd, Tigard, OR 97224

Please let me know on these locations?
The only Burger King I have seen with a play area was the one in Burlingame, that's not on the list above. I don't recall Burger King being into playlands like McDonalds was. What does this have to do with Chili's anyway?

Here's my full list of Burger King Playgrounds I created: https://malls.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_B ... arolina%3A.
I brought this up because the franchise that was operating Chili's in Portland back in 2008 also operated Burger King franchises there. And I was wondering if the Chili's franchise owned these Burger Kings in Portland.
And the Chili's we have been eating at is across the street from a McDonald's that kept the old school play equipment until April of this year when they decided to take it down and are still waiting on the new equipment to replace it. (https://haydenbusinessblog.blogspot.com/2024/05/) What is the progress on the restaurant getting new play equipment?

Sorry to keep this off topic. 1) It was late and I was dealing with something. Sorry if it came off as confrontation.
2) There was never an indoor play area. There was a large wood chip filled area covered by trees and an unusually shaped rounded cover sodium/mercury vapor light next to the drive through lane. It was between it and TacoTime (later renamed Fiesta Ole). This was there from my youngest years in 1984 (my parents preferred Burger King to McDonalds)through at least 2000. Unfortunately no photos online that I can find and it was gone by the time Google started passing through town. It had a climbing structure and swings. I feel this BK may have also later added the same electrified kiddie toys I mentioned above at the 17th St location; in a patio in front of the building. The building does not look anything like its old self today. Image

Interesting. But that restaurant does have a separate room where a playground could be at. I didn't know anything about this Burger King's previous life and a very interesting setup. So it was more like a park next to it than a fast food playland?
