Darden Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE:DRI) just reported earnings, and it's more of the same declining sales at Olive Garden, and a mixed bag with the remaining brands. In the following video, Fool contributor Jason Hall digs a little deeper into the reasons that Darden -- even with the $1.6 billion in profits from the Red Lobster sale -- isn't returning to growth anytime soon. For context, he gives some insight into Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG), which carry no debt and have a long growth runway ahead. For more, check out the short video.
