    http://finance.comcast.net/www/news....29/1021754.xml

    By Associated Press
    2 HOURS AGO
    NEW YORK - Restaurant chains Bennigan's and Steak & Ale have filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection and will shut their doors.

    The companies filed for bankruptcy protection in the Eastern District of Texas. Their parent company _ privately held Metromedia Restaurant Group _ is based in Plano, Texas.

    In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, a company seeks to liquidate its assets and shut down.

    In the filing, the company indicated that it has up to 49 creditors. It said it will have no funds left after administrative expenses are paid to repay its creditors.

    Neither Bennigan's nor the Metromedia Restaurant Group returned calls for comment.

    the only good thing about bennigan's is they're the closest place to my house that has potato skins. But since I can never get my wife to eat there, they're basically worthless to me.

    Good ribs compared to what?

    There are 3-5 BBQ places with in 5 minutes of my house that destroy any of those places ribs.

    Basically no matter what they have that's good...you can get it better some where else.

    They just opened a Bennigans down here like 3 weeks before St. Patty's Day. Oh well, one less franchise in The Bahamas.
