“Franchise food is franchise food”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Don't know why these chain restaurants are up for review as the food is standard wherever you go.
Plenty of family run, nonfranchise places to eat in the area, why go here.
The selling feature of places like this is that they serve food later than most other restaurants.
I have eaten here on a few occasions and found the servers here to be nonattenative and seem to just want to gt you out of there as quickly as possible.
Applebees has the all you can eat lunch specials, but serve the soup in a bowl the size of a tea cup. they also give you one small breadstick at a time. Combine this with a waiting staff that avoids you, you'll be lucky to get a single refill on your soup/bread/ and drink.
