Our food was hot and fresh, servicer was fabulous. Drinks were refilled in a timely manner and we didn't have a single complaint.

Had dinner tonight and did not enjoy at all. Food was greasy and cold. Not good tasting. Left over half uneaten. Poor management as tables were dirty. Floors needed to be swept. Men's room was disgusting. I don't reccomend.

Great place to eat to just about anything your hungry for. It is a nice clean and friendly restaurant for lunch and dinner. Manager and waitresses are very friendly. It gives you a welcoming feeling.

Although this is a typical Applebees, the service was very good. The location is good; it's right off I-90 on the northwest side of town. It beats fast food which is the usual option in the Austin area.

Three of us went to try out their Monday night burger night. Any burger with all the fries you can eat for $6.99. I had the brunch burger and just like it's name it is like eating breakfast at night. A fine tasting hamburger with a fried egg and bacon and hash brown's to top if off with. Big, well... More

Then our waitress went and took an order for some other guest that sat down after us. Not once did she check back with us to see if we needed anything..she... More

We drove a long way to visit friends in Austin and Applebee's seemed like a good place to meet. It started out with four of us but when four more showed up, the staff quickly moved tables around and made everyone comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our entrees (Shrimp 'N Parmesan Sirloin for her, Mac & Cheese with Honey Pepper Chicken... More

Don't go after the noon rush. Help was slow. Bartender had to take our orders. Food was alright but always tastes over salted at this Applebee's. A little on the high end for average food and especially high adult beverages unless you make it to a happy hour.

Thank oderry
