I've traveled a lot and this Applebee's is the cleanest, friendliest, best food and service location in the country! The staff is genuine, the food is ALWAYS hot, fresh, and delicious. I come here several times a week. Kelsie is a wonderful server that always provides good conversations and smiles, and Steph the bartender is a delight. Thank you management... More
