The servers here are great! You'll have to ask for Jeri or Thomas as they are my favorite. Restaurant is clean and the food is consistent to other Applebee's around the country.

Been here a few times, each time hoping it would be better but sadly it isn't. Service is slow, takes forever to get the food. Food is good but it isn't worth the service or the price. Needs better management to train the staff right

Our visit to Applebees of Wilkesboro was disappointing. We expected that with a chain like this the food would at least be somewhat the same. It was not. We ordered the steak entrees with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The steaks were tough and the potatoes...More
