I decide to try the Fire grilled steak. It was like eating a boot. Super tough! I was cooked perfect the cut was cheap and thin. I've eaten the same steak at other locations and it was great. I don't know what happened here.

Applebee's has been around for a number of years and they have changed menu offerings many times. The current menu of 2 selections for the price of one offers many options for those who enjoy a dinning experience of appetizers and main course sharing options....More
