Applebee's has been on Elgin's west side for a longtime. They have great clientele, a popular place for great food and drink. Awesome appetizers, we like the warm pretzel sticks with their special mustard and beer-cheese dip. The entrees offer a lot to select from for almost any hungry appetite. It is located in the Marcus Theater shopping center at... More

We tried the 2 for $20 at Applebee's. My wife had the Fiesta Lime Chicken and I had a burger. My wife really enjoyed the chicken entree; my burger was okay but nothing to write home about. Price was attractive.

The food was what I expected good but ofcourse very fatning. I did order the sirloin over spinach and was very satisfied with the flavor for under 400 calories. Our waitress was very good.

They sit us in the corner in front of the small dirty brooms room (northeast corner of the restaurant). Was very cold I thing because the air vent it's over the table. The table was wet I had to ask to someone to clean the table. And I have to ask for every drink for a refill. But the food... More

We have not been here in a while but my favorite Asian chicken salad was still on the menu, $10 bottle of wine was still on special, and our waitress Marissa was outstanding!~ each chain we visit is only as good as the management: congratulations, Conner! really enjoyed this meal!

I frequent this Applebees location often, and the service and food are consistently good in my opinion. The food is always fresh and served hot. The atmospehere is nice, like a friendly neighborhood pub. We always take advantage of the 2 for 20 or 20 for 25 meals as they come with an appetizer or two salads depending on your... More

My first and last time here or at any Applebee's. My hubby and I ordered the 2 for $25.00. Neither plate of food was appealing or looked anything like they advertise on TV or on the menu. Our 5 little chunks of roasted potatoes were hard and overcooked. I ordered a small steak and it was way overdone and to... More

I charged our meals on my credit card. When the credit card bill came it was higher than the amount on the receipt. When I called Applebees, they said they had problems with other people too and just gave me an 800 number to call. When I called the number I got to listen to recorded music for 15 minutes... More
