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.

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.
