Applebee's, Hobbs, NM

The staffing was totally inadequate. We waited a long time for a table, when there were many empty tables. According to the staff who were seating guests, they didn't have enough wait staff and/or bus staff to handle the crowd.

I hosted a grand opening in Hobbs and ordered party platters. The manager sent the food in multiple white styrofoam to go cartons. The media and city officials were there. The food looked like crap. The manager refused to correct and caused me stress and embarrassment on our big day. Inexcusable!

Not what I'd expected. After having eaten a lot of Mexican food in the preceding days, I decided that it was time to get a steak, medium rare. What I got was horrible - somewhere between rare and blue, the steaks were hardly cooked at all and both my friend and I thought that they were really tough and rubbery.... More

My wife and I stopped by for dessert at 9:00 PM on a Saturday. The place was packed, so there are people who like this particular Applebees. The crowd was such that the service was slammed, and suffered as a consequence. Our two desserts were good, but not served as advertised. The men's room was filthy and without paper towels.... More

Food was average. Service was awful! I did not leave a tip for my server which I rarely do, but so inattentive. Had to wait to be greeted after seated just for water, then a menu....entrée came out before soup so it sat while I ate soup. Had to wait inordinately long time for my check.

First, being a national chain you expect some things to be of a certain standard. Not here and I will save the best for last. Service was below average. It was slow and my server had an attitude. Food was served luke warm at best. The final nail in the coffin was the cock roach scampering across the table. If... More

Our Host was most friendly, and seated us promptly Server was just OK attending to our needs. Food ordered was great., and arrived at our booth in good time. We arrived at about 3pm Friday 9/19 so the restaurant was not that busy. As we were leaving the restaurant a different Host was at the front(slim African- American)not doing nothing... More

I've never had anything but great service and food at our local Applebees! We particularly enjoy going on Tuesday nights for karaoke! It's a blast, I recommend it! BTW, you gotta try the peach sangria and the spinach artichoke dip!

I ordered a steak. The steak was inedible. It was tough. The service was ok. Probably wouldn't eat at this one again.

Just say no. There are other restaurants down the street and I wish we'd have driven a bit further. This is the second time my family has attempted to enjoy a meal at this location -- both bad experiences. When it takes a half-hour to get the ticket after the meal, there's a problem.
