Who knew they had such good wings?

DH and I stopped in to Applebee's for lunch mid Feb as we had a coupon from turning in a bunch of change to a local CoinStar machine. We arrived just after the normal heavy lunch crowd, so we had plenty of good seating. Our server was Stephanie, who was wonderful in spirit, personality and... read more

The waitress was wonderful -- I wish I had gotten her name. The food is good -- I had a Bourbon and bleu burger and it was very very good. It is hard to get excited about a chain restaurant, but this is a solid hoice

We ate at Applebee's on a Friday evening about 6PM. and asked for a booth but none were available--so we took a window table. Unfortunately the next table had 8 young adults who were very loud--looked like they had started their weekend early and were still on the liquid course....we asked for a different table and were quickly accommodated. But... More

we split the appetizer, had leftover, taste was good. I always am concerned about getting sick from food in restaurants, so when I find one that has fresh cooking, I like to give it a thumbs up! And our server was very polite and friendly.

Love Applebee's 2 for $20 food deal. Two dinners ( my favorite is the steak) plus an appetizer, Food is very tasty. Service ranges from OK to good, depending on the waitress.

Service is impeccable, food is excellent... It makes for a nice outing! I strongly recommend it even to families or large group. Music in the bar is good and not too loud that you can't hear yourself talk!

When I am in McAllen, TX, I always go to Applebee's on HWY 83. That is my rest stop. Food is ALWAYS Good and always hot, beer is always cold and service is the best I have ever had anywhere. We always eat the Salads, full for me and half size for the little wife. The price is right for... More
