Just like all the other Applebees, clean, good food, good service. Been here probably twenty times.

“You call this food?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Everything seemed like fake food, sweet, fat, salt, very little anything else. Seasonings seemed artificial. I like real food. I won't eat here again.

“Average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is a place to go when you're hungry and don't much care about the quality or nutrition of what you are eating.

9 million ways to assemble the same four ingredients. Industrial food at its pinnacle.

“Fast friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We ate here and had a good meal which is what we have have come to expect from Applebees. We ordered the "2 for $20 meal" which included an appetizer.
