Wood Fired Fare at Applebee’s
It has been years since I have visited Applebee’s! When we mentioned that to the kids, they asked why and we really had no real answer at all! After our visit tonight, I am positive we found our new neighborhood grill and bar to enjoy!
The reason for our visit was the check out the new American-made, wood-fired grills that is the centerpiece of nearly 2,000 Applebee’s U.S. locations. Recently, Applebee’s underwent the largest kitchen renovation in company history, spending more than $40 million and over 60,000+ hours in training Applebee’s franchisees.
Each Applebee’s franchise have trained chefs who are the official in-house Meat Cutters to cut the perfect steak or chop with the American-made knife exclusively designed for Applebee’s. The Meat Cutters ensure high quality, freshness and an optimal thickness in the new certified USDA choice Hand-Cut Wood Fired Steaks and Bone-In Pork Chops.
The new Wood Fired Applebee’s menu includes:
- 8 oz. and 6 oz. Hand-cut USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steaks
- Hand-cut Bone-in Pork Chops with Honey Apple Chutney
- Cedar-grilled Salmon with Maple Mustard Glaze
- Grilled chicken breast
Many guest favorite meat and vegetables from the menu have been prepared on the new Wood Fired Grills as well!
We started our meal with a delicious combination appetizer, which appealed to everyone in our family.
My picky eater son actually added a new food to his list – mozzarella sticks! And it was a great night for him because Applebee’s has grilled cheese on their menu!
My husband and I both got the same meal – 8 oz. hand cut USDA choice top sirloin steaks. We both were not expecting the fire grilled vegetables to be so fresh and delicious. The steak was one of the best I have had, even from some of the top steakhouses around.
We finished off our meal with some delicious sweet treats! We had the Blue Ribbon Brownie and a delicious chocolate chip cookie ice cream sundae!
