Does fast food count as restaurants on the CSP?

Do fast food or big chain restaurants count as dining on the Chase Sapphire Preferred? How about bars and nightclubs?

ALL restaurants count, including fast food. As far as bars and night clubs I am not sure, it depends on what MCC the merchant is using. Once you're transactions post you can call customer service and ask, they should be able to tell you.
AMEX Blue Cash: $23,500
CITI Doublecash (World Elite MC): $11,200
CAPONE Quicksilver (VISA Signature): $12,500
CHASE Freedom (VISA Signature): $20,000
USAA Rewards (World MC): $13,500
USAA Rewards (VISA): $18,500
