Food: Lemonade - usual thing. unlimited servings. shrimp ‘n parmesan sirloin - so-so. I asked for a well cooked but I was served a medium/medium-rare cooked. So not happy. Habanero Salsa - Really good. I would recommend it. Environment: Nice, tranquil ... can spend time with friends. Service: Really good. They take good care of you. except the well cooked... More

Applebee's Plaza Real is good for taking a drink but terrible for dining. The environment is nice, well decorated, and it is cozy to stay. They serve a very nice margaritas that relax you and make you think on dining or chatting. Now, the problem is the food. It is terrible and it is worse every day. We used to... More

Maybe its the location, but I don't see why people keep going there. The service is awful, the food is flat... like some other reviewer said, the decoration is nothing new, just die Applebee's. It's time to pull the plug.

Applebee's Plaza Real in Monterrey,Mexico, it's not on my list of favorite restaurants. Same fare since 6 years, torn and soggy menus, student waiters, old greasy and shaking tables and chairs; not a place I'd recommend, except for the variety on wednesday's night. They have the most magnificent classic rock group I've seen since Rockola on the 1987 rock festival... More

Good average food. You MUST try the BLONDIE brownie for dessert it is the best in town in my opinion. All the other plates ar okay, but the dessert is awesome.

My family bought some coupons and we decided to give it a try. The wait staff tries really hard to keep you happy, but in the end the food is what counts. Three of us ordered the ribs and they were just "fine", but not really good. What was even more disappointing was the check, even though they applied a... More

Same old same old. The whole chain needs a total revamp. Sad to say that the staff seem to be as tired as the menu.

Probably a bad day... Food was not good... Service was poor (can you imagine a waiter saying "well, yes, we have bread, but it is not good"?)... The worse was the overall condition: flies around and dirty menus... I told the manager but instead of worrying about the dirty conditions, seemed to dislike the comment...

It´s a nice place but the food is not particularly my favorite. It´s kind of expensive also but drinks and desserts are good. Do not plan on visiting any time soon.
