Applebee's is overrated!

What is it about Applebee's that everyone loves? Everyone I know LOVES Applebee's! The quality sucks and the food is dull tasting. 90% of the time I go out eating with my folks is Applebee's. They pretty much don't like anything else. I go there almost weekly, because that's where everyone else wants to go.

It does suck! Stop going...you're making it worse by supporting them!

I agree. I never understood what all the fuss was about.

I will say, though, that the spinach & shrimp salad they had this summer was yum-my.

But all I usually found it good for was meeting people there (becuase they're everywhere & easy to find) for drinks and maybe appetizers before heading someplace else...

I used to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them when they had Teriyaki Chicken Stir-fry. Now, they have some sort of bowl thing. Definitely not the same as a steaming hot skillet of stirfry...

We used to go to a couple of times a month. Now, we go a couple of times a year.

I used to LOVE Applebee's, until I went there with my mom on her birthday, and I found a huge hairball in my mashed potatoes. I haven't been back since then.

I thought I was the only one who didn't get why Applebee's is supposed to be appealing. It's no better than Denny's in my opinion, except at least Denny's is open 24 hours!

Who the hell do you know that loves Crapplebee's? Out of all of the hideous "bar & grill" type chains they are by far the worst. I don't step foot in the place and neither does anyone in my circle.

Same here. I won a $100 gift card to Applebee's, so we've put it to use, but it's no better or worse than the others of its ilk.

But Denny's? I think I'd rather lick a floor than eat at a Denny's!! I won't even repeat some of the unsanitary conditions I've witnessed there - far, far worse than any other restaurant that I've ever patronized!

One time at Applebee's the bottom of a thick glass cup fell off as my mother went to take her first sip. She had to go home and change and they only took off the cost for her food (even though they brought it out when they knew she was gone and it got cold)! She had to leave her four daughters (3 of whom are minors 13, 8, &, 8) to go home and change during what was supposed to be a family meal and they still had the nerve to charge full full price for every meal but hers! I still eat there occasionally, but my goodness!

We don't even have an Applebee's here, but I've eaten at them twice in my whole life and that was two times too much.

I hope they never bring the chain over here!

I really do not care for it. It has very few vegetarian options.

We don't have one here, and I'm not missing it AT ALL. I AM missing Olive Garden, though.

I never knew that Applebee's was highly rated. I went there once in Orlando and had terrible food and service. I've never been back. Friends of mine have had the same experience and won't go there either.

You obviously know the wrong people.
