Ate here and my husband and I both ordered steak which were both rubbery and had lots of gristle in them. The broccoli I ordered was wilted and dried out. The baked potatoes were undercooked and still hard. Service was ok.

I ordered the riblet basket today and there were only 3 riblets in basket. I believe that this is a poor value at $9.99. The waiter was very nice and substituted coleslaw for the fries at my request but While the riblets I got were very good, it was just an appetizer. Also music is too loud. Should just be... More

Unknowingly, Monday night was $5.99 burger night, I ordered a bacon cheeseburger! The burger was dry, bun was extremely hard and the fries were cold. My assumption is that burgers and fries are made in advance to keep ahead of the nightly special! I did mention to the waitress about the quality and she had another made. After a short... More

After a day of driving we needed to eat, it was 10 pm on a Sunday. The restaurant was quiet and they were still serving food. The atmosphere was nicer than any other Applebees, and our server was very accommodating.

Wife and myself ate here after Mayo visit. Great waittress. Wife ordered shrip on rice. The rice was too spicy for her so waittress brought some plain rice for her and gave us credit (which wasnt necessary but nice). Would eat there again.

We ate out every evening while visiting the Clinic. This Applebees was close to the Ramada Inn Hotel, at the Apache Mall. Food was very good and plenty, but the service a bit too slow. Not good if you are tired from the daily schedule.

After a long day at Mayo clinic with invasive tests the last thing I wanted to do was go out to dinner. However my wife and two kids were starving so we decided to go to Applebee's. The overall restaurant was quite nice and very clean. Service was good and food tasted wonderful. Even though I couldn't wait to get... More
