My experiences at Applebees has always been great. However, the recent change to their steak portions has been unacceptable.
Like most college students who are trying to stay within budget, the 2 for 20/25 deal has always been preferable. My girlfriend and I would traditionally dine in for the 2 for 25 deal and we would both order the 7oz steaks. When the steaks came out, they LOOKED like an 7oz steak. Even when choosing to upgrade to a 9oz steak, the portions were extremely filling.
BUT! As of late, the steak options has reduced to a 6oz steak with an 8 oz upgrade option. I don't know if Applebees is having difficulty with acquiring meat these days or whatever, but the 6oz and 8oz portions are laughable. I found myself being stuffed with carbohydrates like mash potatoes rather than my steak!
I've eaten at my local Applebees numerous amounts of time and I have never seen the steak so small before. It's pathetic.
