    I go there for boneless hot wings and the tall reasonably priced tall Sam Adams beer. I only eat in the bar though. Happy hour prices are some of the best in my area.

    My sister got a job there long ago and said the food is all very fresh and they really use high quality stuff. It's the only place like that I really go to.

    I've only been to an Applebee's once because a friend asked me to meet her there. It was nothing special. I would never go to one for a myriad of reasons including the following...

    *The guy who owns all the Applebee's in this area is an enormous asshole who at one point was Vice Mayor of the city and used his political power to accelerate his businesses. One of the big things he did was get a citywide smoking ban passed when Applebee's corporate decided to ban smoking in all of their restaurants.

    *There are many excellent bar and grill places in my city that are locally owned. One sports bar in particular has a chef working in their kitchen who I have a lot of respect and admiration for.

    *Applebee's is the go-to place for ghetto people to go on dates.

    In 1994 I was a turrible waiter at Chili's and still made $100 a night just on volume. People love the food there. I don't get it. The goal was to get your ass fed and out of there in 45 mins. It's a step above fast food.

    Shiv, you ever go to the Applebee's around Forest Hill and Congress on Friday night.

    Some of the brothas from my basketball team took me there because they said the kareoke was "off the chain". I was like a piece of kosher salt that landed in an IHOP pepper shaker
