I think I didn't know what I was getting into. Based on this experience Applebee's is clearly one of the lower rungs on the chain restaurant ladder. The salad was particularly tasteless. The dessert was 50% fake whipped cream by volume. It was nearly the price of fast food, except for the drinks, so I guess that's what we paid for. Now I know.
