Cheap Night Out?

Aug 25, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:More bang for the buck...

Cons:Wish there were more like it...

Applebee's is the kinda place you can take people when you wanna go out but don't have much money on you. Even that Special Someone will appreciate it because it's well-furnished, dimly-lit, and all the workers think they have a good job because they're very polite. There are booths by all the windows and they even have candles at the tables. Good stuff unless you have spoiled kids practicing pyromania.

The cheeseburger and fries is a good deal, just like most of their other stuff on their moderately-priced entree list. There's enough beef on the bun to get you full, and they don't try foisting overdone fries on you like a bunch of other places I can name. If you're watching your belly, their soup menu is real good too; of course you gotta load up on crackers to get full, but it's the same way everywhere. There's lots of good desserts too, so if you do bring the kids, make sure they don't get those sugar-induced power surges or you'll wind up chasing them all over the parking lot.

The big thing here is the pitcher of beer. Like most drinker-friendly places, you can get a pitcher of Bud Lite (the old stand-by) for about six bucks. Three of these will do you in for the night. That Special Someone will also enjoy their mixed drinks, which are usually made well, but I'd be sure and test her drink for her. There may not be enough alcohol and you will have to make a beef.

Finally, some of these places are getting into karaoke on weekends. This is a great way to have fun for the whole family. Your kids can bring down the house with a nursery song, and you and the little lady can take turns singing love songs to each other. You can even get up and do a duet if you pay off a waitress to watch the kids. If it's just you and that Special Someone, then it's dedications all night long. It kinda goes in stages: first pitcher you're barely able to look up at the audience and your voice cracks; second pitcher you're doing Elvis and Sinatra; third pitcher you're trying Guns and Roses, people are starting to leave, and your Special Someone is taking longer and longer in the bathroom during your songs. Oh well, what are weekends for anyway?

Applebee's has something for everybody at reasonable prices. It's worth a visit and you'll be back for more.
