Applebee’s Restaurant – Youngstown
Posted by LOTGK on August 1, 2009
One of the Lead Scientists favorite restaurants is Applebee’s. After a little persuasion, we landed up there for dinner. It was not crowded when we arrived and we were seated rather quickly. The waitress took our drink order and returned shortly.
As you can see I ordered the Ultimate Trio sampler platter. (I really couldn’t decide what I wanted so I ordered everything) Our dinners were brought to our table in less than 10 minutes. (Pretty speedy business)
The platter consisted of two mini burgers, (Sliders) which were surprisingly tasty and well cooked. So far so good. Also on the platter were fried cheese sticks with marinara sauce. Surprised again. They were well cooked, crunchy, and the sauce was zesty. Lastly, spicy boneless wing dings with celery sticks. The sauce was just hot enough, not five alarm hot, but ringing a bell at least, and the chicken itself was juicy and good tasting.
The cost was $12 dollars not including drink and tip which for what I received, was a fair deal. The service was efficient and speedy. A very good first impression. I could see why the Lead Scientist dined there frequently.
The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 3.25 out of 5 shots and recommends Applebee’s for lunch and dinner.
