So this Applebees is typical of the chain and the management and staff do a good job of preparing and serving the food. You can get some pretty decent food at a reasonable price. What brings me to write this review is their brunch burger....More

Service was very good, food was just OK. Very noisy, but I guess that's just the norm. But margarita was one of best ever. Ever changing menu is interesting, but too often old favorites are gone.
