We had a good meal at the Applebee's in Aurora. Had the two for $20 special. The Standard Burger was very good and the Cedar Plank Lime Chicken was wonderful. The Staff were nice and attentive. a good place to eat.

I came to this Applebee's because it was only two blocks from the hotel where I was staying near Denver International Airport. I sat at the bar because I was alone and did not want to sit at a table by myself. One of the two bartenders was Daniella (sp) and she was really great. She was pleasant, always had... More

I had a pasta dish, my daughter had a steak and my son had chicken fingers. All three of us were sick to our stomachs when we got back to the hotel. With that said, the service at... More

This location was right next to my hotel, which was by the airport. It was walking distance away. The happy hour specials were great. The beer was cheap and the apps were good. The service was fast and very friendly.

The place was packed and there was a waiting list. So it is a popular place. Although a chain, we were served nicely and the choices on the menu were more than sufficient. I had a special burger (forgot the name) and my collegue a salade. We both enjoyed a nice meal with a couple of lagers.
