Applebees Complaint - I Remember Why I Hate Applebee's
MESA, ARIZONA -- My boyfriend and I went to dinner at Applebee's last night. I hardly ever eat there because I've never cared for the food. But, my boyfriend really wanted to go and they have that 2 for $20 special. With that special, you get to choose one appetizer and 2 entrees. Not a bad deal.
When we got there, we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. It was a Saturday night, so we expected a wait. It gave us a chance to look over the menu.
When we got seated, we ordered our drinks and food. For the appetizer, we chose the boneless wings in a sweet and spicy sauce. When the wings came out, there were 6 wings on the plate. I know it was an appetizer, but I expected more wings for 2 people to share. The sauce was good, but there was way to much breading on the wings and hardly any chicken. I let my boyfriend eat most of it.
For the entree, my boyfriend got the steak and I got the riblets with a side of mashed potatoes. The riblets were drenching in sauce and there was hardly any meat on the bone. I've had riblets at other places that had more meat on them. The waitress also brought me out a side of fries instead of mashed potatoes. I politely pointed out the mistake and she quickly brought me the correct side. The mashed potatoes were swimming in butter. I'm not a fan of butter so this was unappetizing to me. I kept the side of fries, but they were not very good either. I found them to be greasy and tasteless.
On the plus side, our waitress was WONDERFUL. She was attentive and had a very pleasant attitude. The great service we received almost made up for the disappointing food.
