Sitting at the bar here is always fun. The Perfect Margarita is a hard-to-beat drink. This is a good chain restaurant with reliable food and beverages, nothing fancy, but you know what to expect. The oriental chicken salad is a favorite and is on their two for $20 menu-two entrees and an appetizer. For our appetizer, we enjoy the tortilla chips with artichoke dip. It's hard to beat this price for a good summer meal. I have also had the riblets here-very tasty.

We go here on occasion, mostly because it usually pleases everyone and it's close. Parking lot is a nightmare as spaces are too small and ends with a brick wall that's makes it impossible to turn around. Now, on all the tables are these tablet-like gizmos. The allow you to order your food and pay for your food. They also advertise their food while you wait. Additionally, there are games for kids and trivia so you don't ever need to make conversation with your companions. It created a new thing for my kids to fight over. Yea. Also, if you decide to use it, they'd be happy to charge you for your trivia game and add it to your bill. They now insist you use it to pay (like a supermarket) and suggest your tip be 20%. Not sure why since it's almost do-it-yourself dining. Maybe I should just go get the food from the kitchen myself and they wouldn't need a waitstaff at all? So classy!

Am so enjoying the amazing service at the Applebees in OR. We've been to 2 so far that have really blessed us - we aren't used to that good, quick or friendly service at an Applebees! Food was good as always and we loved the staff - friendly, efficient AND fun!

We arrived a little later, due to traveling and needing to rest a bit after our day. The mac and cheese i had was good but the beer could have been colder. We sat in the bar and our waitress was pretty attentive at first once we ordered the special, she seemed to not show up as much.

Applebee's offers a Quesadilla Burger which is really quite good. Instead of a hamburger bun they use grilled flour tortillas and add a little salsa to spice things up.
