“Their 2 for $20 is a good deal”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant is on the busy corner of Lohman and Telshor, next to Village Inn and Starbucks, with Office Max, Albertson's, and Target not far away. We went for an early New Year's Eve dinner, about 6 pm. We were seated immediately, but as we left a few people were waiting in the foyer. Their 2 for $20 is a good deal -- one gets a choice of about five appetizers and a choice of about six entrees. We chose the spinach and artichoke dip, which was a nice size, and came with a small amount of salsa and plenty of corn chips. We each chose the same entree -- the grilled chicken and shrimp. It came in a timely manner, even before we had quite finished the dip. The entrees came sizzling hot in a pan in which they had been cooked and those were in a basket (apparently to keep the pan, which looked like a cast iron oval, from burning the table). There was one good sized breast of chicken with a small amount of thyme sauce spread on top, and this sat on top of some grilled onions and mushrooms. There was a side of roasted potatoes. Having had the dip, this was more than either of us could finish, so we ate half the chicken and took the rest home. The chicken and shrimp were not too spicy, but the thyme spread may not be for everyone. The atmosphere is pleasant, especially if one sits on the outside square ring of tables, because it is free of TVs (which we don't like to watch, or hear, while we are eating). The smaller inside square has the bar, TVs, and additional tables. The restrooms are to the back of one side, where the take-out is, and are quite OK. There seems to be ample parking on all sides of the restaurant, but especially in the rear. Having parked somewhere, it is not really clear where the entrance is, but if you just keep walking around the building, you will get to it.

“What's going on with this Applebee's?”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Ate here late one evening, as it was pretty much the only thing open. Looks just like any other Applebee's, same menu, same everything, but when our food came we were all disappointed. Burgers were smallest I've ever seen in a place like that. Similar in size to a dollar menu burger. The serving of fries was about half of what you would normally receive. I thought chains like this had a standard in portion sizes...? The food was cooked well, and service was good. Just half portions, for full prices.

“Better Than Most...!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The bar area was carpeted...that was new for me and appreciated. The staff (bartender) was really nice and attentive. The food, drink and price were all what you anticipate...for me, it was fair-priced, well-served and comforting after a long day of driving.

“Applebees has seen better years”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This location is dumpy and tired, with fittingly heavy food and laminated menus that were nonetheless greasy and sticky to the touch. Everything seemed to have too much salt, cheese or both.
