Their food is mediocre. Period. I don't see why this place is so popular. I'd rather eat macaroni and cheese at home.

I often lunch here when in San Jose. Like all Applebee's, the faire is consistent very good (not great, but better than many chains). Service here is always fast and friendly, and you never have to worry about an empty coffee cup or lemonade glass.

They used to have a good health selection but the recently removed Confetti Chicken is a big loss.
