So after watching those enticing TV commercials for Applebees two for $20 dinner specials we decided to go to the restaurant for dinner.   The special includes an appetizer and two entrees so we had the spinach artichoke dip, tequilla time entree and burger entree.     Boy what a disappointment, it seems the way Applebees is getting stuff so cheap is by purchasing the cheapest food products and slapping them on a George Foreman Grill and serving that out.

The service was great and I have no complaints about the staff but the restaurant was a bit smelly with the scent of tobacco.  Clearly the restaurant hadn’t been refurnished since the smoking ban went in years ago!

Overall we won’t be going back to Applebees any time soon.  There are too many restaurants with better food choices but I will say that the restaurant was pretty full for dinner and I thought that was very interesting.
