In contrast to the previous poster, I think that the food at Applebee's is not only creative, but tasty too! Even when I am not going out to the movies I order Carside-To-Go from this restaurant. (The staff , who are friendly, will come up to your car and deliver your called-in order. Trust me, it is a life saver.) They have all of my American favorites, from onion rings to burgers to fries to tons of sandwiches. If you're on a diet, they even have Weight Watchers items! The food is tasty.
The menu is affordable and varied, at the most maybe $25 a person if you eat a lot and order dessert, drinks, appetizer, and entree. Service is good. I also like the "neighborhood" decor of this chain. It doesn't feel like a cookie cutter experience. But then, this restaurant has been well maintained all these years and it feels like new.
Parking is not a problem, and the location is super. They are right in front of the Ritz Theater next to Eagle Plaza. Look for the big Acme.
