I haven't eaten at Applebee's since 2010. I was traveling on business in Texas. I ordered a salad, and they brought me a large plate covered in shredded cheddar. After I moved some of the cheese out of the way, I found a lettuce leaf and a quarter of a tomato.

Their food is so meh but my daughter loves their Fiesta Lime Chicken. Finally I found a copycat recipe online and learned how to make it so we never have to go back there.

I have eaten at Applebee's once.  Never again.  Was there with my wife and kids, and wife orders a salad. Food + salad arrives, and under a piece of lettuce, is one of those coin shaped batteries.  We tell our waiter, who obviously tells his manager... Manager comes over and sorta tries to blame us, like we are trying to pull a fast one.  Manager comps us the salad, but not the rest of the meal.  No thanks Applebee's, there are plenty of places to get food who are not trying to kill us.

We were moving, had already been in the car 14 hours, and it shared a parking lot with the hotel, there was nothing I could do. Being tired always bites me in the ass!

Which is why people shouldn't rely on unpaid schmucks in the comments section of a news aggregator site. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

I spent a month in Topeka one night while moving out to Colorado and was forced to take in the local fare. My wife and I went to the local "Italian place"because we figured it would be at least decent. We'd had fast food burgers for lunch and she's weird and didn't want beef twice in a day so she ordered the vegetarian lasagna. It was a huge mound of cheese with a single piece of broccoli -in meat sauce with the meatballs removed.

I won't even get started on the weirdness of a simple trip to a grocery store. Topeka is a weird farking place.

This is fark. No one here eats at Applebee's.

And if we do, we don't admit to it.

And if we do, we call the rest of you snobs.

Should have tried the BBQ. There are a couple of really good spots there we visit when passing through.

Was in Topeka for work last year.....two things struck me as odd:

1. absolutely NO rush hour traffic
2. the grand opening of a Chick-fil-A was a VERY big deal

Do you know a Dillon's grocery store in something of a strip mall? The Italian Place was in there (my phone apparently thinks that needs capitalized). The brief stop in at Dillon's ranks among the weirder interactions of my life, as well.

My data is already out there cause of the military data thing that happened a few years back, not to mention the 3 or 4 illegal persons using it from when my mom's purse got stolen with our SS cards. I have monthly credit reports, and lots of supporting documents for disputes.

I try to pay cash at most places where the bill adds up to less than $100. The fewer times I use my card, the fewer opportunities for it to be compromised, and the fewer headaches for me.
