I usually only go to Applebees because of the food and the decent prices. Normally I am displeased with the service. The waitresses are always really nice, but for the most part it takes sometime 10 min for him/her to come to the table when I first get sat down. Tonight we ate at the Emporia, Kansas location and it was the best experience ever. Our waitress was on top of it and her section was packed. It was just my kids and I because .99 kids night. They had Disney BINGO and my kids LOVED LOVED LOVED it.
Ordered dinner/drinks. Ordered 2 for $20 meals. Waited for Drinks; Appetizers came, and we had just begun eating, when meal was there. Staff came by to take plates before we were even finished - as they needed them for all the customers waiting. (6 people, maybe, with 3-4 empty tables.) We felt rushed through the whole meal. Finally, just gave up and left. Will not return anytime in the near future. It is back to Bruffs, or Coaches. At least there, we can sit, have a few extra drinks after dinner, and enjoy our evening out.
