My husband and I are especially fond of Applebee's lunch specials of two dishes. It offers a good variety and good value. We also enjoyed their weekly NASCAR contests and were lucky enough to win a few times. Cassandra is our favorite waitress.

A friend and I stopped into Applebee's during a Sunday afternoon shopping excursion. We decided on the 2 for $20 selections, starting off with the tortilla chips and spinach and artichoke dip, which was yummy! My friend had the Oriental Chicken Salad and I went with the Chicken Tenders Basket. (chicken strips and fries) Both our meals were prepared quickly,... More

A friend of mine and I visited Applebees just to sit down and enjoy a quiet meal and chat. It was perfect. We told them ahead of time that was what we were needing and they sat us away from the crowd and we had a very pleasant time, and the food was amazing. So were the Margs! ;)

Avoided the place for well over a year for two reasons... it being an Applebee's ... and was a poorly run one at that Reluctantly returned after hearing it was remodeled and had new staff. The verdict? Quite the change for the positive. It no longer looks shabby inside, and much more importantly... excellent service. Still an Applebee's, but now... More

I try to avoid most chains but occasionally I will stop in one. This place is clean and the wait staff was very good. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife had the Mac and cheese. My fish was over cooked, the fries tasted like cardboard and the coleslaw was less than desirable. The Mac and cheese was... More

Every time we go here, we seem to get the same waiter. I'm pretty sure his name is Mike. He always is there ready to help you with anything and he'll remember a familiar face. He is probably one of the best waiters I have seen!

I'm not a fan of chain restaurants and try to avoid as much as possible, but on a recent trip to Burlington with my son's baseball team we ate here. The food is usual Applebee's fare--good but not 5-star, Michelin-starred restaurant. BUT the service we received is one in a million. With hundreds of ball players and their parents in... More
