Great service here for a Sunday night but the food is over flavored and just a slight touch above fast food. Nothing unique and over-sauced dishes make it difficult to stomach. I ordered the full rack of ribs and was not impressed by the food or the price. I should have saved my money and eaten downtown Asheville at some... More

Arriving at this location (new to us) it wasn't clear which side you are expected to enter from. We ended up parked near the "to go" entrance, where we were greeted with a sign that said that it was closed after 9.

The restaurant had very few customers in the parking lot or inside the restaurant yet the food took forever. It had really no taste and was not that warm. The fries tasted as if the grease was old. I would never go back to that Applebees. The one we have in town serves good food.

Had the lunch for two. Grilled chicken and shrimp was really good. We each had a side salad. Waiter was terrific. Price was great for two lunches, $20.00

My wife and I were up in Asheville, NC for a wedding and we decided to head to Applebee's for a late night snack and drink. Everything here was basically average but the food and drinks were a bit above average.

It's my first time eating here. I didnt know before that it provides a healthy food. I thought it was a kind of McDonald so I hadn't decided to try but I was wrong till i tried at Asheville and the food was just perfect to me. I'll have my lunch at Applebee's again for sure!
