My mom and I go out to lunch every week and we almost always go to Applebees. http://www.applebees.com/MenuLanding.aspx There are 3 different ones on Staten Island that we hit. Today we went to the one on Richmond Avenue. Well, all I have to say is that when we left, I was telling people not to go in. Find a new place.
First, we entered about 1/2 hour after opening, so it was NOT busy at all. We were seated quickly, ok, fine. We ordered our lunches, which is always the same every time, I get the Nachos Nuevos, my mom gets the Angus Cheeseburger and my daughter gets grilled cheese. Well, like I said, it was not busy, but it took about 30 minutes for the food to come. Why, you ask?? Because they let it lay around. EVERYTHING was cold. My mom's burger was dried out (from being left out) and the cheese looked like someone scraped the piece off. Now, anyone who knows Applebees knows that the Nachos Nuevos is usually a huge serving, loaded with meat, lettuce, peppers and tomatoes and sour cream, and nice hot cheese. Well, my nachos consisted of about 20 chips(max) with watery cheese, no lettuce and hardly any meat, no peppers or tomatoes, and it was cold as well. The grilled cheese was thrown together and cold.
My daughter's lemonade tasted like dishwater. It was nasty.
Needless to say I will NEVER go to that one again, and I made sure I left my JB card at the table. Maybe they will get new people now!!!!!!!!
