Convenient to our airport area hotel and decent quality.

We went to Applebee's a couple of times while in Albuquerque. Their food is tasty and the beer is cold. The service was quick. Several TVs had games on. It was the best we found near the Albuquerque airport.

Typical Applebee's (it is a chain after all), but the staff was friendly and fast. My food came out just as ordered and they kept my iced tea topped up without me asking. I was annoyed by the computer terminal on the table - they try to scam you into paying for unlimited games while you wait for food. I... More

The place was packed with the business lunch crowd. The group of us ordered off of the lunch menu. I asked for a Gluten Free menu. The wait person came back several moments later with the Applebee's Allergen Information list. Asked me to skim through several pages of printed out paper with the entire menu and the allergen items. I... More

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.

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.

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!
