This was on my list to try in the USA and in all my previous trips I had never got around to trying one. Well this all changed on my last visit and this has now become one of the must do's every time and a USA favourite.
Rewind to our family holiday to the Disney area last August / September, the plan said we were having a bbq in our villa but a typical stormy Florida afternoon put paid to that so instead we all hopped into the car and went to the nearest Applebee's.
Even though the car park was busy we got a table (for 4) straight away. We sat in a booth in the pleasant restaurant and started looking at the extensive menu. Our server came (Vince) and introduced himself and was absolutely excellent. He helped us make some informed menu choices, informed of us the special offers on food and drink and was just chatty enough to be friendly without being intrusive. In fact we leanred a lot of Vince and his life and he had visited London for an NFL game, so we chatted quite a bit about that. I would go as far to say that he was one of the best servers we ever have had the priviledge to meet.
As for the drinks, I was driving so could not partake in alcohol but my wife took advantage of the 2 for 1 offers, whilst the kids and I took the soft drink options.
The food was excellent, I had a duo (steak and chicken pasta), my wife had a steak, my son had baby back ribs and my daughter had mini cheeseburgers. ALL of our meals were tasty, plentiful and great value.
We all loved the Applebee's experience and want to visit again asap.
Highly, highly recommended.
