Went there with wife and kids. there really aren't many low carb items on the menu, so had to try something. went with the Cedar plank chicken. bland, not enough sauce, apple relish had no flavor, except for the apple. overall service okay, but not really busy. wonder why?

We love coming here and haven't been in awhile. I ordered steak and it was a little dry (overlooked) and did not have a lot of flavor. However the other 3 people really enjoyed their food. The Blazin Texan Burger, oriental grilled chicken salad, and Crispy Brewhouse Chicken and they were all enjoyed. The women's bathroom stinks so bad. Apparently... More

We had a gift card for Applebee’s lying around for quite some time, so we decided to put it to use and head down to the McKinney location for some early dinner! Om: NAAAHM! These are my observations at Applebees! Wow, look at all the TV’s! They are everywhere. It’s not very busy for a Sunday late afternoon. We got... More

The Applebee's at home are nothing to write about, but this one is excellent. We arrived late to town, and this was one of only a few places that are open late during the week. Our server was outstanding and the food was hot and fresh--yum! I would not hesitate to stop by here again if I'm in the area.

Went for a Sunday brunch with family. Food was sub-par for Applebee's in other states. Considering the price, I would definitely not recommend this location to anyone.

Stopped to eat on our way to Arkansas- food was great! The service was very good as well. My husband and 9 year old both enjoyed their meals. Nice family ambiance.

We went to Applebee's this week. The food was great, with service to match. I had Sriracha Shrimp, and my wife Had Pulled Pork Nachos. The only complaint was the quantity Of the meat on the Nachos. For what they charge, they could have put more on The dish.

We visited on a Sunday after church. We were seated right away. They have a new thing on the menu where you can order appetizers 2 for ? , 3 for ? etc. We ordered the cheese sticks, wonton tacos, and quesadillas shared all three for our meal. We both enjoyed, food came quickly. Service was good and better yet,... More

Since we reviewed the Evergreen Illinois Applebee’s, we decided to see if our home town Applebee’s compared. Everything was still delicious, especially those really good green bean crispers, but I have to say the Chicago Applebee’s beat ours when it came to the onion rings. Chicago, despite how a franchise follows the mold so to speak, did something different with... More
