What Restaurant Have You Sworn Never To Return To And Why (r/AskReddit)

Published by Darron Toy on

our slash asked reddit what restaurant have use want to never return to and why part of being a responsible adult is structuring your life in such a way that you are never in a position of having to eat at Applebee's but they have one dollar long Islands that can get you blasted at 3 p.m. on a Tuesday so structure your life around that at least yeah you go do that then go to the chillest down the road for actual food Applebee's I was sad by the hostess then waited 20 minutes to get my drink order taken eventually the manager brought them out and 20 minutes later the server took our food order then she disappeared for half an hour and I went to find the manager again and he couldn't find her so he brought the food then ignored us again to I left a tip but it was two pennies and a soggy straw wrapper making a frowny face and a soggy straw wrapper making a frowny face you over-tipped it's not about the money it's about sending a message I came here expecting a few different local restaurants but apparently Apple biz is run by a Council of the most inept owners gathered from all the worst episodes of Kitchen Nightmares where's the lamb sauce it's duck I'm raw law I came in here to say Applebee's but it seems you guys have it covered Millennials are killing Applebee's I mean I think Applebee's is killing up Abby's just fine on its own Dennis had just kidding Applebee's edit lull this is my most upvoted comment I'm gonna use my platform to remind you all to wipe after a big one got me I live in Switzerland but if I ever were back in the US Applebee's simply to fit in I'm Swiss but staying stateside right now if I come back to Switzerland I'll bring an Applebee's so we can all collectively teach each other to hate at least one thing that exists in Switzerland can you represent all of Switzerland and go out tonight to Applebee's just to confirm to all the Swiss that it is indeed terrible Applebee's is the reason I don't have a dad Applebee's killed my family Applebee's poisoned our water supply burned our crops and delivered a plague on to our houses a place near me turned away a blind guy because of his guide dog made the papers what makes it even worse –is that the guy is renowned in the area for running marathons to raise money for charity Applebees Applebees took over 45 minutes for me to get my appetizer and the waitress kept my change food was just okay how on earth did that happen I mean you literally just had to ask to speak to a manager before you left hard to believe any waitress would risk her job over stupid hit like that had the waiter at a bar keep my change when I gave him a 24 like an $18 bill pitcher and another ear I just didn't say anything because I was actually going to tell him to keep it and also give him another $5 for a total of a $7 tip he cut his tip to less than a third by keeping it so it was his loss really an Apple biz waitress tried to convince me their new recipe nachas didn't include cheese when I requested cheese I was given a plate with two melted cheese slices on it never again then they aren't nachas WTF how do you have nachas without cheese I'm confused except for maybe desert nachas or something these clearly would Ezard nachas a barren hostile cheeseless land I'm convinced that someone with a bunch of reddit accounts has some sort of personal grudge against a blobbies every experience I've had with Applebee's has been horrible I'm really not surprised it's a popular opinion I went on my second date with my now girlfriend there so I can't completely hate it though I did find out that the manager hit on her while she waiting for me to get there up I'm so sorry your tread got hijacked by stories about Applebee's but god damn I haven't laughed this hard at a comment section in a while I vote we try this thread again tomorrow but specify what restaurant other than Applebee's but yeah this thread is a beauty in its own right I keep going D looking for one non Applebee's reply and keep getting swerved in new ways ducking beautiful Applebee's their steaks have changed and now they are always dry and full of gristle I was taken to an Applebee's once I ordered a ribeye they brought out a sirloin cut I asked to return it and bring out what I ordered and they brought it out I suspect they routinely send out cheaper cuts of meat to unsuspecting people who may oh I love there was taken I'm imagining you being pulled out of the trunk of a black van in the corner of a deteriorating parking lot and shoved into a chair at an Applebee's squinting at the lights after hours and hours of darkness and wondering if you'll ever see your family again and ordering from the menu with a gun pointed at you under the table but the food takes so long to come that the police catch up with the kidnappers and surround the restaurant along with the 50% of the waitstaff that is already outside taking their smoke break at any given moment quite the imagination I have it really helps when I'm forced to wait an hour and a half for my food okay seems like there is a consensus on Applebee's then one night recently I went on a date and we decided to walk over to a nearby bar after our dinner we both liked the bar and my dates best friend was bartending we sat down together at the bar it was kind of early so not many people were there yet and the chairs next to each of us were empty after a little while some guy saunters up next to me and strikes up a conversation with me he was being pretty flirty which was weird because I was very clearly with my date who is a pretty tall somewhat intimidating guy and his best friend bartender was right in front of us who not only works there but also is kinda intimidating so I introduced this Rando Sanford to my date to make it crystal clear not to flirt with me it had no effect in fact Sanford started to borderline flirt with my guy in a rhyming kindergarten and my idea of flirting is being a huge asshole I'm pretty advanced at banter and I was getting increasingly rank so I just kept my attention focused on my date and would give funny but harsh remarks back to Sanford when necessary my date is also a sarcastic asshole when necessary and we were honestly having fun with it albeit annoyed I got harsher and harsher as time went on and then Sanford started to get pretty upset he hit me with a real doozy after flirting with me all night prompting others to acknowledge that I'm gorgeous he got upset and said to me eh I would hit it if it weren't for your huge Adam's apple ouch so at this point I get wide eyed that this creep just went there and my dates he gets pissed he immediately tells Sanford that that's two ducking fahren to get the hell away from us once I recover from that horrendous burn I turned to Sanford in a way he can no longer even see my date and my date cannot attempt to defend me I smile I stand up and I opened my hand towards Santa Ford implying I want him to take it he stands up and takes my hand grinning as if he thinks he finally won his trip to the bathroom for now because he finally wore my self-esteem down enough to want to duck the likes of him but no I put a death grip on his hand and dragged him to the front door and kindly ask the bouncer to kick this guy out the bouncer immediately turns to him and says get the duck out of here man Sanford's face basically goes white and loses his argument with the bouncer and leaves the end Heather oh no there's more this is where Applebee's enters the duck onstage two short days later my bestie and I go to run some errands decide we need dinner but want to keep it super cheap and nearby so we begrudging Lee go to the nearest restaurant Applebee's we take a seat at the bar which was mostly empty save for two regulars across from us the restaurant is completely empty behind us and there are maybe five totals tables on the other side we order our $1 Long Island and some apps and are having a great time when I see one of the servers while he looks familiar that couldn't be no there's no way that could be him Sanford I turn to my friend and say I I think that's the creep from the bar I told you about the one I got kicked out I try to figure out if it's him without grabbing his attention but lose interest and carry on with the meal we were almost done with our repair ties errs when someone taps me on my shoulder I turn and what do you know it is Sanford he's smiling and I start laughing obviously he has come over to apologize say he was rung and make amends he says remember that time you got me kicked out of Parliament me laughing no not at all Tim still smiling yeah that's gonna come back to bite you India's one day his smile quickly turns into a creepy glare and he storms off to the computer on the other side of the bar I'm processing what he just said and getting angrier by the second when he starts yelling at me from across the bar he tells me he's glad he didn't hook up with me because of my Adam's apple why exactly he's so stuck on my Adam's apple which no one has ever commented on before and isn't really that big I'm not sure and why he chose to start hurling insults across the buffer all to hear when he's on the clock and doing all of this within earshot of his own tables I'm not sure he keeps on with his tirade and all I say is dude you're at work do you really want to lose your job because of me – he scoffs and walks away another worker finally appears and my friend grabs her and asks for a manager Sanford sees this and rushes into the kitchen presumably to do damage control before the manager speaks to us it takes probably five whole minutes before a manager appears I apologize and say that I know he probably doesn't need any problems but that I simply can't accept his employees behavior and explain what just happened in the context he gets a statement from the regulars across the bar they seem to confirm our story I'm sure the rest of the restaurant would've as well including Sanford's tables considering they all turned and stared when it was going down the manager appears some sort of form takes down my account of what happened and my contact information he kinda apologized said they might contact me once the GM sees this we were almost done anyways so when the bartender finally shows back up after missing all of this we asked for our check she wasn't being very friendly that she had been like that from the start so that wasn't a surprise I was somewhat surprised to see that the manager didn't pay for an appetizer or something considering his employee just yelled insults at me and everyone in the restaurant heard it and stared at me also considering he somewhat threatened me with oh that's gonna bite you in the ass comment I bought ended answered for one third of my life and can't imagine not doing something to apologize I was hoping I would get a call from the Grahams I don't know what I wanted to hear but felt like somebody should take real action on the matter I never got a phone call as I was made to the leave I probably would I never really even got an apology and I'm willing to bet they never even really fired this psychotic duck that ladies and gents is why I will never go to Applebee's again I'm ranked as hit off three quarters of a bottle of wine and this was a great ducking Reid till everyone hates Applebee's I think the hatred is due to the fact that it used to be good at least a lot of us in our late twenties / early thirties remember it being good during that time late nineties there wasn't a lot of competition in most other restaurants were these awful 1970s / 80s relics that had bad food and smelled like 50 years of stale cigarette smoke Apple bez was a great alternative to aging chains like Ponderosa and Big Boi the hit they covered the walls that made it look fun and informal and the food was actually really good they were also clean since they got popular right around the time smoking in bars was banned a lot of places but sometime in the last 10 years the food quality really declined and the decorating is a lot more Spartan and stale than it used to be it probably doesn't help that the restaurants themselves are aging and the chain is in the same place restaurants like Ponderosa bigboy were in 20 years ago poor food quality for the money McDonald's is hotter and fresher and Dacor in desperate need of a facelift the Mayo Applebee's and I meant that before I started reading this thread they forgot we were there sat there for two hours you sat there silent for two hours though I always think this when I hear about people waiting for any period above 10 minutes Applebee sounds like the scourge of the earth thanks to this thread I bet this will appear in a BuzzFeed article at some point talking about America's most hated restaurant or something crapple bees ate there 15 years ago thought it sucked too friends convinced me to try it again last year wound up hugging toilet and dry heaving the next morning never again a har I thought this was a different restaurant at first glance and I was like oh what other restaurant sucks besides oh wait never mind makes sense though haha Brooklyn's bizarre er in Austin Texas edit wife said it was broken pie company near macer and spice woods I don't see it in Google Maps I'm assuming it is closed now I ordered a gyro pizza right off the menu guy taking my order said they don't sell that pointed to it in the menu and eat up my order 45 minutes later I asked where my pizza was they lost it no one else was in the restaurant 15 minutes later I asked again oh he wanted us to make another one a few minutes later they must have found it cause they brought it out cold where they lost it and found it I probably don't want to know starving my wife and I ate a slice each and asked for a new one they said they'd fix it brought out the same pizza burnt it does Applebee's own them I'll go to Applebee's before I go back to this place does that mean that Applebee's owned them Applebee's had a chicken salad got home cooped up nothing but the lettuce called in sick for three days my mom didn't even make it out of the Applebee's she buffed all over the table nothing like an subscribe


Methavee Markwell · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

As an Australian, I have never been to or even seen an Applebee's (which I'm sure many people will consider a blessing by the tone of this thread) but now I kind of want to go to find out what kind of shit will happen. Like when "Amy's Baking Company" was still a thing and people wanted to go, not for the food, but to see if shit will go down.

Anie Ferreira · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Can someone tell me if this is 15 minutes of people shitting on applebees

Steve Jones Gaming · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Chili's, too small of portions

This sushi place, I never realized I hated sushi that much

Dook Dook · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

My favorite restaurant is 711

Kae Watson · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

KFC, at least the ones near me. All the food there is either bland or if it does have flavor the flavor is just… Bad
Also am I the only one who's never been to Applebee's?

everydayfixer · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Strangely, I've not had a bad experience at applebees. But I guess chicken tenders and cheeseburgers are about the same anywhere.
Also I live in the south.

the geth · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Maybe hell is just a big neighborhood where applebees is the only source of food.

just pulchra · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Applebee's does suck, they aren't wrong. I went there once when I was 7-8. Burnt Pizza, terrible Mac, etc. Terrible.

Yair Lopez · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Is AppleBee's seriously that bad? I've never been there.

FeedMeSalt · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

KFC, But that needs no explanation.

rae · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

hilarious bc i fucking hate applebees too. always have. it’s the ONE restaurant chain in my town that’s lasted since my childhood. i know several ppl that work at it currently. literally ALL OF THE FOOD IS FROZEN AND MICROWAVED except for like salads. sad. the last time i was there (probably over 10 years ago at this point) my burger had a hair and my mashed potatoes were still in the shape of the tupperware container they were stored in. how are they still in business with all this hate?! lmao

Drazil Odomok · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

don't go to chilli's i worked there for about a month. the mold and mildew was so bad, managers didn't care, headquarters wasn't willing to look into it.

i will not go to burger king again. i went there 2 days ago and i just got over the food poisoning. got a fever of 100.6. i shit about 2+ dozen times in 5 hours that had so few solids it could pass through a coffee filter, and i vomited for 2 hours. i am better now but my chest still hurts from the vomiting. so far contacted burger king 3 times, still no reply.

i stopped going to mcdonalds years ago. i had mold in my egg in a mcmuffen once, and a rancid burger once. the kicker was that at the time 1999-2001-ish when i worked at a subway that was facing the back of a mcdonals, they would get their bread delivery before opening. the crows would peck at it all morning, and they'd bring the bread in for service when they opened.

maybe it is a good thing i am running out of fast food joints to eat at.

Edit: i've never been to an applebees. i tried to get a job there and the managers was extremely rude so i didn't try to follow up. so maybe i lucked out.

TheRiceandCake · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

God, I'm guessing AppleBees really hit the shitter since I was a kid. But you know another shitty restaurant Olive Garden.

Poetic Penguin · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Idk what they talking about I’m 12 and go to Applebee’s all the time and I love it. I don’t mean the same Applebee’s I mean different ones across the world. I play AAA hockey and go to far tournaments atleast twice a month. Applebee’s is my teams place. I love the service and food. Y’all r crazy

Natku Animaku · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Why will you never go to Applebees (r/askreddit)**

Jacob Molyneux · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Can't remember the name of it. The burger and chips were nice. But the dessert, the Apple crumple, was not awful. It was unbelievably too sweet and looked like cereal. Like you know weetbix, special k etc. those kinds of cereals. Was so sweet it burned your throat. Seriously it was just like cereal mix. Not an apple crumble at all. The crembrule' my dad I tried and was pretty damn nice tho haha. But yeah, god damn that Apple crumble was terrible. And I love my Apple crumble.

Cyber Kirby · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Can someone explain Applebee’s (in great detail pls) to a non-American?

Liwiathan · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

It's sad that Applebee's got rid of all their best food.

Applebee's = Nickleback.

Red Lobster is genuinely awful, and Duffy's bought and shut down my favorite restaurant.

Emma 420 · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Outback is terrible, our steak was raw and they never gave us enough ranch and they never gave my dad his side of broccoli.

Champa · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Me, trying to hate Applebee’s in peace:

Ruby Tuesdays. Diarrhea. Every Time.

I can't believe I badly wanted to go Applebee's when I was younger.

Books & Solitude · July 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm
