the usual too loud Applebees

After a few trips here, we just drive past now. The food is nothing special, and of course it is always loud. It has probably been a year since we were there, because our out of town friends suggested it.

We frequent Applebee's, it's local great menu and fantastic staff. Their menu is always changing and they haven't disappointed. Their prices are very reasonable and their food is very fresh. We will be back time and time again.

Hot tea was cold, sodas were flat, ok no prob..just asked to replace them and anticipating appetizers. Waitress... More

Limited beer selections and an OK menu. The burgers with stuff cooked into them were interesting. Typical Applebees.
