The past few times we have gone, the restaurant has been dirty, the prices are fairly high for the quality of food and the food has only been average. However, the restaurant is always crowded and there is usually a wait. We tried it again on Saturday for lunch. We both had the Santa Fe Salad. The salad consisted of lettuce tossed with dressing and a sliced chicken breast on top. It tasted ok, but it was a very poor salad because there weren't any fresh tomatoes or other vegetables aside from the lettuce. We've decided that this was the last time we would go to Applebee's. For the money, you can get a much better quality meal elsewhere.
