Surprisingly Good

Rarely eat at chain restaurants but it was necessary recently. Both my wife and I had the sirloin steak with gains, at only 370 calories. Dish was tasty and healthy and we enjoyed it. Had a nice glass of California wine, too. Didn't try anything else, but what we had was good.

It's difficult to stand out when you're a chain restaurant, so you can't fault them for being just okay. They used to have some free games on the tables, but now you have to pay to play them. Happy hour is good (same as every other Applebee's).

Incredibly slow service. Quite loud. My bbq dinner was alright, but just not the dining experience one might like. Expensive for the overall value.

I went to Applebee's because my guests wanted to go. I will say the service was good and the waitperson very friendly. The food was way too salty and the cut of meat was a mystery to me. I could not eat the food.

All the Applebee's I have visited are overrated. I only go there when the majority in a group want to go, or if I am so very hungry it is the fastest choice. The Applebee's on Yale Blvd was no different. Ordered an entree and a salad. The salad never came. the entree came with the wrong side. And it... More

Nikki and Justin are top shelf! Great service as it was reasonably busy. The locals are entirely nice and helpful in talking about the area. Makes you want to return. Bourbon steak was better than I expected (ordered it at other ABs and hit and miss). I travel to ABQ 3-4 times a year and will be back!

My wife and I had lunch there. She had the Thai salad with shrimp, which was very good. I had the hamburger and fries - it was OK, but had cooled down by the time it got to my table. We were in a hurry to catch a flight, so we didn't complain. Service was on the slow side (maybe... More

Great service, delicious food. A little on the upper scale as for price. Will be back on next trip to the big city.

We had the 2 for $20 meal and could not have asked for anything more. Megan was our server and has a great personality and was helpful and attentive.

If you like greasy, heavy food, with no nutritional vale, then this is the place for you. The only item that I was able to eat was a spinach appetizer, my wife ordered a salad without some of the items but got what the cook decided to give her. Service was poor and slow. Even though there was no other... More
