“GREAT fruity drinks, fast service, conglomerate - so menu no change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

Actually, I had gotten very tired of this place & didn't even care for the menu anymore. Then they changed it around a year or so ago so we tried it again. Horrible service, so I complained online to a regional mgr, who COMPLETELY reimbursed us w/even extra in gift certs. So we went back & it was great! We've been back some more. I really appreciated this reg'l mgr's responsiveness. Unfortunately, because it is a chain, they have to stay w/the same menu, but you do have choices. And did I say they have good drinks?:)

Why am, I reviewing Applebee's in DeKalb and giving it 4 stars? Because if you were in college and broke, this is where you'd take a date. It serves it's purpose to the poor starving romantic.
