I had steak, fries, grilled vegetables, two beers, and the tortilla soup. The soup was really, really good. Best of all was the service of Jess (Jessica M). The atmosphere was nice and the food good as would be expected at any Applebee's.

SERVICE WAS GREAT! Lots of selection from light snack foods to "FILL YOU UP" meals at a very affordable price. The food was served within a few minutes and the overall experience was very enjoyable.

Whenever someone asks me for places to eat, i always emphasis downtown since we live in a major destination spot with excellent restaurants. Though if you're looking for a place that won't burn a hole in you're wallet, applebees has two for 20 dinner options and half price appetizers, cheaper drinks during happy hour.
