Applebees has great NEW Salads and a great Sweepstakes!


I am a long time Applebees lover, we go at least once a week, it’s the perfect place for my family and I to get a good tasty dinner and have some family time!

I took my son to Applebees this week and I tried out some of the NEW Salads that they have to offer, as expected, Applebees salads are delicious and the new ones are just as good, if not better!


Being a Steak lover, the NEW Southwestern Steak Salad was my obvious favorite, it has a real authentic taste and the steak came out a beautiful medium rare.  The food at Applebees is seasoned to perfection and I have never had a bad bite there!


I have a few favorites at Applebees and the food is always on point!


My son loves Applebees fries, we all do, they have just the right amount of crunch on the outside with Fluffiness inside!

Applebees makes a great family dining option and it’s also good if you are eating alone, they have lots of great drink options and the servers are always bright and happy, they make eating at Applebees a delight!
