We stopped into Applebee's in Mission Valley. The traffic was really bad. SO ....we thought a cool drink and appetizers. Perfect! The appetizers are good size and tasty. Sitting at the bar was great, friendly bar tenders with helpful information in the area.

We visited Applebee's in El Cajon for a second time, a year later. Again, it was a positive experience. The service was excellent, the food choices excellent, and the prices very reasonable. We will be back.

I came to applebees for my 21'st birthday. I ordered my first legal drink of my life and it was served with a LIVING MOVING FLY in it. I told the manager and was told I would get a replacement. After literally 5 minutes and watching others get their drinks I contacted the manager Reggie again. I was told "it... More

3rd year in a row I have eaten here for Veteran's day, and despite hundreds I had no wait for a table. My Waitress was Lisa and she did a great job. She started off thanking me for my service, then she told me about the Veterans special Menu, I ordered a 7oz Sirloin and double mashed potatoes. My tea... More

You can come in when there is no one here and watch the wait staff chatting and laughing and sipping their sodas with absolutely no interest in serving anyone. We were on our way to a movie. We had to leave and go to a burrito shop so we could get an order in.

I submitted this restaurant address to Trip Advisor and they responded with the Fletcher Pkwy address. This Applebee's is NOT on Fletcher Pkwy; it's in the shopping center called Rancho San Diego, wedged between Pick Up Stix and Denny's on Jamacha Rd. And it is well worth visiting to meet Sandy. She is friendly, professional and quick. And the food... More

My husband had the pasta with grilled chicken and broccoli. My sister enjoyed the lemon shrimp fettuccine. My daughter really enjoyed how we ordered more than one desert and the whole table shared it.... More

We've been to a few Applebee's. We can always count on the quality of food to be excellent and the portions just right! In the past, we've never been able to count on the service to be so good. We've even walked out without paying. It was that bad. Well, NOT here! The service has always been excellent. We will... More
