Like it said this is an isolated incident. There were pictures but only a few news sources had them.

I want a link to the photos, Coralville is 60 miles from me.

"It didn't bother me when I thought it was a piece of bark, but when it was a part of a small animal that was a little bit different. That I thought needed their attention," says the woman.

i don't know what her problem is really, i mean people fight for the chance to eat shiat like this on fear factor.

Coralville isn't far from where I live,too.
And I just ate at Applebee's recently.
And why do I have the uncontrollable desire to flick my tongue to and fro? And scamper from here to there?

THIS is the way to deal with these situations. Someone at Applebees should be getting a nice bonus for how they handled this customer's problem.

Where in Iowa are you? I'm in Waterloo.
My gf and I went to that Applebees' not that long ago either. As drunk as I was, I probably would've just eaten the damn thing.
Did either of you make it to the IA Fark party?

The woman says the restaurant management was very understanding and apologized, but she says the whole situation was still a little disturbing.

Well, at least she didn't raise a skink.

This must be a joke. If it was real, people would be getting sued for $1000000 by now.
2003-05-10 11:53:30 AM  
This is Iowa, not LA; wer'e not overly litigeous here.

Q: What's worse than finding a lizard in your salad?
A: Finding half a lizard in our salad.

"This must be a joke. If it was real, people would be getting sued for $1000000 by now."

Is that $1000000 British or American?

it was a GEKO!

not Geico!

applebees sucks. there food tastes like it was made and frozen beforehand.
2003-05-10 12:05:03 PM  
I'm surprised that this didn't happen at the ghetto Applebee's on University and Snelling in St. Paul.

Riomp300, that's because it is.

I'm from the QC.
Formerly from Dubuque.
I didn't know there was an IA Fark party. (sigh)

This isn't unusual... Once found a whole frog in a can of green beans.

Yes, those are the French Style green beans.

I'd just like to point out how great Iowa is.



Really great.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Crapplebees... delicious.... lizard....
2003-05-10 12:46:36 PM  
Nice one, Young_Fart
2003-05-10 12:46:47 PM  
Oh come on guys! Eating one of these things are good for you! Think of the protien!

Opps, is that PETA calling?
2003-05-10 12:47:04 PM  
At least it was a clean lizard part.
2003-05-10 12:48:49 PM  
Don't you farkers be dissin' Iowa.
I may haul off and smack you with a corn stalk.
2003-05-10 12:52:16 PM  
APplebees sucks... they dont carry a veggie burger so they get an "F" in my book, the only vegetarian items are on the kids menu. Each restaraunt has that same boring decor crap to it.

Every salad I've ever ordered didn't come with bark mulch? What is it with this woman? She likes her salad tossed with rough bark I guess! ;|
2003-05-10 01:07:45 PM  
Eat at Denny's!!
2003-05-10 01:17:50 PM  
"Hey, you got lizard in my salad!"

"Hey, you got salad in my lizard!"

Two great tastes that taste great together!

"For awhile there you just feel a little bit strange, and you just don't want to eat a salad anymore for awhile."

for awhile?! how about the rest of your life?

nice one, young_fart.

as a side note, when i was little, my uncle said he found a frog's leg right outside our garage...and we watched in horror as he ate it. just recently i was recalling the event, and he said "you thought it was really a frog's leg?? it was just a green bean!" man, i felt burned.
2003-05-10 03:07:40 PM  
Mmm, crunchy lizard surprise.

Well, if it wasn't crunchy, it wouldn't be a surprise!
2003-05-10 03:25:26 PM  
this is why i hate chain food places like that
2003-05-10 03:45:58 PM  
My sister in law found a lizard in her salad last month. It was in a restaurant in Salt Lake City. I can't remember the name, but it wasn't a national chain like Applebee's. Man, that's really a strange coincidence.
2003-05-10 04:09:42 PM  
2003-05-10 04:11:18 PM  
Lazymazy: good one. I'll have to remember that one for my sister's kids.

Nice thing applebee's did was offer the woman a free salad for every day of the month to make up for it.
2003-05-10 04:23:39 PM  
Haha, too bad for her that she had almost finished all her food before she found it. Ewww. But it's funny.
2003-05-10 05:08:10 PM  
Way back in the day I was a corporate trainer for Applebee's. Trust me you don't want to put any of their so-called food in your body. I'd rather just eat the lizard! No joke! FEELING NOT SO GOOD IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD!
2003-05-10 06:22:52 PM  
Won't stop me from eating there. And yes, all the food is prepared before hand and then microwaved from what I have heard from servers there. But my Applebee's is the best because it is the cheapest place to eat in town after 10. Half price appetizers every night $1 Bud and Bud Lights (which obviously isn't saying much there). Can't beat that.
2003-05-10 07:17:26 PM  
I just ate at that Applebees a few weeks ago. No lizards parts in my steak, I don't think, but still, ewwww.
2003-05-10 07:46:15 PM  
Have had nothing but bad food at the Muncie applebee's. Their steak just downright sucks ass!
2003-05-10 08:06:33 PM  
CaptainCrunch: What happened there?

P.S. IOWA R0X0RZ. *former Iowan*
2003-05-10 10:56:54 PM  
Applebee's sucks. I go to Chili's for my dose of corporate microwave food. At least there they'll put the lizard in the chili, which is, of course, much more appropriate.

As a former employee of KCRG, I wish we would've made enough money to afford a lizard salad.
2003-05-11 09:20:08 PM  
Where the FARK is my Iowa tag??
2003-05-13 06:14:10 PM  
Holy Buckets! Farkers in IOWA!
I thought I was alone!

Dorkusmalorkus...I'm in the QC, and what Iowa Fark party?

MadDad1...Another QC Farker? GASP!
