Very disapointed with are visit here for coffee and desert, coffee was old, then had to ask and wait 15 minutes to get the second cup. One of the brownie bites was rock hard, I mean you couldn't even cut it with a knife.

Some friends told us they have karaoke night on Tuesdays so we went and did have a very good time,the food was good for the price, noticed that some floor managers were attending to some customers that means some of the servers like the one who took care of us need to be more attentive and don't rely on automatic...

We went to Applebee's for lunch and the food didn't taste fresh. We had hamburgers and fries and it just wasn't as hit and fresh as it used to be. The fries especially tasted old. My husband had the riblets which were tasty but his fries were also old. The didn't have pickles either. They served us cucumbers instead and... More

We went to Applebee's today and the service was a failure. The wait for the food was long. The appetizer came with the meals. The kid's meal came after the adult's entrees. The children's macaroni and cheese amounted to Kraft macaroni and cheese dumped onto a plate without being properly stirred and mixed. The spoon used for the children's side... More

We normally avoid chain restaurants, but not knwing the area, and not finding a lot other than Mexican and steak, we went to Applebee's and had two nice dinners. They have several '600 calorie' dinners that were quite tasty. The beer and wine prices were reasonable, and the service was very good. The desserts were also quite good. Can be... More

We had one of Applebee's lunch specials offered. Tomato basil soup combined with their Oriental salad with fried chicken. Just enough for a light lunch. Great wait staff. Friendly and attentive.

We stopped for a Quick light lunch. Their oriental chicken salad was delicious and the basil tomato soup as well. Our waiter Jacob was so nice it was a pleasant experience. We frequently stop at the Harlingen Applebee's and are usually well taken care of.

After visiting Applebee's on Monday evenings for the burger and fries special, the service gradually got worse and worse. They increased the price last month and we thought we would hang in there as the burgers are really quite good. But after this past Monday, February 23rd, we will NOT be returning. Usually about 20 to 30 of us go... More
