When I'm on the road (50% of the time) I frequent Applebees restaurants. I've yet to find one worse than this one. I've tried this location several times because I live right down the road, but I won't be back again. Rather than list the many reasons this most recent visit wasn't good, I'm just calling it quits.

Went to our local Applebee's for Sunday lunch. Had not been here in awhile. This site says it is "now closed" but having just returned from eating, that info is a mistake. Had a free birthday entree coupon to use! Sorry to read some previous poor reviews before writing this one, but we were pleasantly surprised today with great service... More

I decided that since it was Friday night I would meet my mom at Applebee's and we would have a couple of drinks and some appetizers. We decided to sit in the bar area because it was really packed and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. We had a couple of drinks and some delicious appetizers but the best part of... More

I should have remembered the first experience we had and never returned. However, we were gifted 30.00 in gift cards so we thought why not. We were seated immediately and our server was very attentive. I asked for a sweet tea and got an unsweetened one instead. I tried to drink it but I just couldn't it was so bad,... More

While on business I went to eat at this location. The service was good but the food was unacceptable. I ordered a steak medium well and the first time it came out medium rare. I sent it back and when it was brought back to me it looked like one side was placed on the grill to remove some color... More

It is a typical chain restaurant. Our server was less than stellar. No plates with an appetizer, forgot the protein on a salad, slow refills. Food was average, even for a chain. With such an extensive menu (it is a book, for goodness' sake!!) I expect something a bit different to set your place apart from other chains. Sadly, Applebee's... More

From the moment we were seated, the circus began. Waited for our waitress too long...she was obviously untrained or didn't care. (to be fair- the hostess was the sweetest and most helpful person)...The Kitchen staff was even worse than she was... they could be heard yelling obscenities as each other and then laugh about it.... not once or twice but...

I have frequented the other Applebee's in Lubbock and in other markets, but I have to say this is the worst service of any Applebee's I've ever encountered. Tonight's visit was absolutely miserable from the moment I approached the hostess stand and was greeted with, "Can you please just wait? I'm not ready for you yet." (There was no one... More

The service was probably the best thing about this trip. I ordered the half rack of ribs and my mom ordered the sirloin. The ribs were very small, chewy and tasteless and was about fifteen bucks. The sirloin was very dry and the vegetables seemed burnt. With appetizers and waters, our ticket came out to about 43 dollars. It was... More
