Applebees Complaint - Too Much Salt
I have eaten at various Applebees and have been treated well by the staff and the quality of the food and portions are more than adequate. As someone who has worked in a restaurant, not fast food, I find one aspect of Applebees to be a problem which seems to be a policy. All steaks, potatoes and other items have a great deal of salt added. When the salt crystallizes on the potato skin, that is way too much. Even when I ask them not to add any salt, they seem to pour it on. I have contacted them again about it and finally received an email reply that they are sending my suggestion to the Food and Beverage Team.
I have no need to watch my salt intake, but Applebees adds way too much. The last time, I could not eat half of it because I filled up on lemonade to rinse away some of the salt. The manager was willing to remove my dish from the check even though it is not his fault but company policy. Maybe Applebees expects people to buy more drinks if they add extra salt.
If you do have a problem exacerbated by salt intake, stay away from Applebees.
