On our way to the airport we stopped at the Harlingen, Texas Applebee's. My husband had the Thi salad and said he would go back to the chicken spinach salad. Personal choice. My daughter chose the pick two for lunch. Unfortunately the chicken in the Oriental salad and the sandwich arrived cold. Our waiter was exceptional. Returned it and brought... More

Monday night special of burger and fries for $5.99 and PBR for $1.99 can't be beat. Look forward to Mondays every week now. A number of excellent burgers to choose from. I have tried three and so far loved them all. So far the triple bacon is my favourite but still have a couple I will try. I used to... More

This week we arrived and were shown to our table. Our group consisted of two friends plus my wife and I. We ordered the triple bacon... More

I have never been a fan of Applebees food much and I was served a fly in margarita shaker. When I showed the waitress I guess she may have been embarresed or something but she acted like it didn't happen. So I was not to hapy with the problem or the reaction.

After eating at Applebee's dozens of times in the past five years, we have finally given up. The food is mediocre and the kitchen is VERY slow. The wait staff is friendly, but the high turnover shows. And they cannot compensate for the very slow kitchen. Speaking of turnover, it seems that there is a new manager every few months... More

But we do like the ribs, even though they keep raising the prices on them. And their Asian Chicken Salad is great!
