I eat here often. The food is good. The music is always so loud that we ask them to turn it down so we can talk. They always do. You couldn't have a conversation if they didn't. The food is good but they have changed the portion size. I'm on weight watchers so that doesn't bother me too much except... More

Not a single vegetarian entree. Sides were pretty good (garlic mashed potatoes & roasted vegetables), but side salad cane out with bacon all over it -so that had to be sent back. I don't see a repeat visit any time soon.

enjoyed a nice leisurely meal with my wife. I wish they would turn the music down just a bit since the restaurant was less than 1/2 full on a Friday night. had to raise my voice to be heard across the table.

We went there as a group of 10 for my little brothers birthday. I called ahead of time and made a reservation. When we got there the table wasn't ready and we had to wait about 20-25 minutes. Well we all ordered at the same time and half of the table got their food and ate it all and at... More

We found the food to be excellent at Applebee's. I ordered the Cowboy Burger which included fries. The burger was large and cooked just as I requested. The burger included bacon and lots of onion rings. I requested the Barbeque sauce be served on the side so I could add as desired. My wife ordered the spinach & artichoke dip... More

They should have the option of zero star, wait for our drinks 20 minutes, meals arrived 35 minutes later no server wear, no refills our entire time there was for 2 and a half hours, it was a mess, we will never come back ever.

My family had a very poor experience at the Waco Applebees. One of our burgers was served almost raw. We sent it back to finish cooking, but instead of doing that they cooked an entire new meal. Unfortunately they did not put a priority on it and the rest of us were finished eating by the time it was done.... More

Went here once about 18 months ago. Waitress had her kid there with her at work! She was a cute child who knew no strangers! She kept interacting with us! And kept interacting with us!

We were very unhappy with this Applebees. We were seating with no problem and our order was taken by a friendly waitress. When our food came we saw that my son-in-laws hamburger was almost raw, he had asked for it with a little pink inside! We sent it back and the waitress was very apologetic. My daughter and I had...
