Applebee's touts itself as your neighborhood restaurant, and unfortunately, this is probably true. This location of Applebee's is less than 2 miles from our house, so it is very convenient for a fast meal. Again, that is a big problem. Due to its convenience, we frequent this location about twice a year.
The restaurant is attractive enough, the bar is attractive, and the servers are young, sometimes inattentive, sometimes not.
But I want to make a firm statement here: we have never, ever, had a fully satisfying meal at Applebee's. I recently ordered the potato/gravy/steak mound, medium rare. The steak was over-cooked, chewy, and under-seasoned. The entire dish was visually appalling and tasteless. I should have known better. My wife ordered a half-rack of baby back ribs. The ribs were the smallest that we have seen, more appetizer size than dinner size.
The issue is not that this meal was less than satisfying. The issue is that every meal that we have had here has been less than satisfying. Damn you Applebee's for being so convenient!
