What most of America, particularly Middle America, has become characterized by the ubiquitous Wal-Mart, TGI Fridays, Applebees, Chili's, Gap, J Crew, Best Buy, Target, Olive Garden, PetCo, McDonalds, Banana Republic, Border's, Costco, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Circuit City, KFC, Sports Authority, Starbucks.. and on and on it goes.... until every city/town/suburb starts to blend in and look like one big flavorless mall... where all the people, genericans, mindless zombies, consume and consume and consume.... slaves to corporations and keeping up with the Jones'
As I travelled across the States it was all Generica and I couldn't tell whether I was in Columbus, Ohio or Milwaukee Wisconsin. You know what? It doesn't matter to most as long as they can still get their non-fat Iced Caramel Frappucino...

Term for generic food served at generic American restaurants.
When I want boring cheap food I like to get Generica Cuisine, it never fails at being average.

Someone asked me how my food was, I said completely average, Generica Cuisine at it's best!

Lets go to Applebees, the food is never great, nor bad, but it's always Generica.

You know a good Generica place by how hard it is to order. When everything is average it's hard to decide.

Suburban areas where the predominance of malls and chain stores have so homogenized the landscape that there are few remaining external clues where you are. The result of spending any length of time in such areas is a "generic" experience of America, i.e., an experience that is identical whether you are in Texas, Massachusetts, Ohio, or California. May also include extensive housing developments characterized by tract housing or, worse, McMansions.
Every "mom-and-pop" shop that had given the area its charm and character had been replaced by a Walmart, a Payless, a McDonalds, or a Starbucks -- transforming what was once a delightful town into just another corner of the United States of Generica.
