I just had the new Pork steak(?) off the new menu. It was fabulous. I normally get steak but wanted something different. The mashed sweet potatoes were great too. It is a lot more calories than I thought but it was worth it. These are...More

This was our first visit to an Applebee's in several years. We arrived shortly after 4pm on a Thursday, so at this time they had 1/2 priced appetizers and $.50 cent boneless wings. My husband and I ordered our food and ate, and the wings...More
