Went with friends to the Falls Church VA Applebees a couple of weeks ago. I have eaten there before and it is not bad. However, my recent experience left me with a bad taste. Like a fool, I ordered a steak (I should know better than to order a steak in any place other than a steak house.) I ordered the 12oz rib eye. My friend ordered a 7oz sirloin. When the steak arrived I swear it was not any bigger than the sirloin. Besides that it was razor thin, and cooked well done (I ordered medium.) I asked the waiter if he thought my steak was bigger...he hummmed and called the manager. The manager came over shortly after... I explained my concern. He said that was the standard 12 oz rib eye.... and was pretty adamant about it...not a very friendly guy at all. I shrugged my shoulders, ate what I could, paid the bill and left. The morale of the story.... don't order a steak at Applebees, especially the 12oz rib eye, and expect to get much more than a thin slice of beef. And don't ask the manager there for anything---he is a customer unfriendly guy.
