I love to cook but every once in a while I like to take a mini cooking ‘holiday’ and allow Hubby dearest to treat our family to a hearty meal outside. Considering Bunny Boo is still a wiggly baby, we prefer picking places that are family friendly (AND baby friendly), easy on the pocket and at the same time serve good food. One of our favorite casual dining restaurants is definitely Applebee’s.
Though only 31 years old, Applebee’s is the World’s largest casual dining chain. Its rich menu proudly boasts of something for everyone, irrespective of the age, with its Watchers menu, Kiddies Favorites, Pasta, Seafood, Sliders, Burgers, Ribs, Steaks and my favorite- the 2 for 20 menu!
The 2 for 20 menu is your best bet if you’re looking for a “Value For Money” package complete with the ability to pick what you want and leave with a satisfied (and bursting) tummy!
What is the 2 for 20 menu?:
Under the 2 for 20 arrangement, you and your accompanying guest pick an appetizer to share and the follow this with 2 separate full sized entrees of choice.
The spicy wings make an irresistible appetizer as the crisp, tangy cum spicy combination is delicious when doused with the accompanying ranch.
I personally loved the well cooked, Bourbon flavored chicken and shrimp but did not really care too much for the accompanying potato wedges as they seemed overdone and unsalted. Hubby on the other hand thought his Riblet and sides hit the spot well especially as he’d asked that the meat be “well done” and additionally flavored with fresh pepper.
Bunny girl insisted on ordering a kids meal with a corn dog, french fries and chocolate milk. Halfway through the meal she decided eating bites from our plates was more appetizing and tasted way better than what she had ordered, so Daddy had to finish off her leftovers!
On an overall, I personally think this is a nicer restaurant, in terms of ambiance, for families with older kids. This is definitely the place you should go to if you need to grab a bite to eat and don’t want to miss the big basketball match or soccer game of the day.
Would Mom like to be treated to Applebee’s this Mother’s Day?….
