Had not been to an Applebee's in years but this was close to our hotel so we gave it a shot. Service was impressive. Prompt and courteous. Drinks stayed full. Food was hot and fresh. Price was very fair. If you ha e not been in awhile, give it a shot.

This Applebee's is located within a short walk or drive from several Aurora--- Denver International Airport hotels. The food was great. I visited 3 times when staying in the EconLodge. The service was superior.

Ate here because if was convenient. Had the salmon and while it was acceptable, it was nothing to "write home" about. The service was good. It's what you would expect from this chain.

Had my birthday dinner here, Joey was the BEST waiter you could ask for. Food was well cooked with the exception of the crispy potatoes - they just needed a few more minutes in the fryer, but otherwise good. Would not reccomend the banana cheesecake though...

Tried a few different Applebee's, hoping it was like Bennigan's. Bland food, rude service and they cant even make a coronarita the way it should be. Go to Chili's, still a little high in price, but at least the food has flavor to it, and the customer service is much better.

I ordered to go late at night and was so hungry. Yet, the servers waited for me to get my food. THank you!

Not bad. Service was okay, food was the usual fare even with the new menu, i'll have to come back and try some of the new items on the next trip just to be fair. They still need to figure out how to get the draft beers cold. The wife and I both got semi cold beer.

Had a wonderful dinner with my daughter, service was very nice and business wasn't terribly busy so was seated quickly and ordered quickly as well. Food was delicious and new menu items were a welcome surprise as well.

My friend flew into town late and wanted to grab a bite to eat so we went to half off apps, but the menu was limited with only a few options. However, the margarita was delicious!!

When you replace customer service with machines you loose that one on one personal touch. I personally like to talk to my waitress and get to know her. I don't get it with all the kiosk payment machines... yes, it might be fast service but what about us people that like to take our time eating and enjoying our meal..

Thank Deb4life
