OK for a quick meal

People we were with said Applebee's was an OK place to eat so after a long day at Busch Gardens we popped in here on the way home. First thing you must remember is ID as they won't serve anyone alcohol without it. Even I had to show ID and I am clearly not young at 55. The food came... read more

We ate at another Applebee's location some time back so we have stayed away from this Chain of Restaurants for quite some time. Last night on a whim we decided to try this place and we were very surprised. I will say it was a little dirty, dead flies on the windows (like no one cleans back there) and our... More

My party of 6 didn't want to wait the 30 minutes for a table (while there were a plethora of open tables that just needed to be wiped down, mind you) so we chose to sit at the bar. This proved to be a magnificent choice. The ladies at the bar were quick to attend us and explain the 2... More

I ordered the Fiesta Lime chicken and they threw in some table scraps to go. I found a potato spinner, a fry, some lettuce, and some other items in my dish which didn't belong. I tried reporting the issue to no avail because their "contact us" section of their website isn't responsive. I guess it is just for show. Needless... More

Typical Applebee's menu. We were quickly seated (ate at 5:30 PM), Very good service from out Waiter (Jackson) Food was prepared in a timely manner and well seasoned (as we like it). Plenty of parking in the strip mall where Applebee's is located.

Applebees has a 550 meal that can't be beat. They have taken off the Weight Watchers points, which is a negative. Have lost over 92 lbs in the last year and half and Applebees is just around the corner from where I live--my main outlet for eAting out.
