I first went to an Applebee's when I had been living in Massachusetts, and before I discovered what really good steak was. I remember fondly really liking the place.

I hadn't been to one for more than half a decade until I finally tried the one in Redwood City with a friend of mine -- who was loathe to try it, because her experience with an Applebee's in Oregon was very bad.

Neither of our past experiences seemed to reflect on this Applebee's. The food is fair; the steaks aren't bad, but aren't as substantial as you would get at an Outback or Black Angus. Perhaps it's because I've been exposed to such good restaurants in the area, the reality of Applebee's doesn't match up to my memories.

On the other hand, the issues my friend had with Applebee's in Oregon were apparently also unfounded; unlike her recollection, our service has always been good, the staff friendly, and drink delivery fairly prompt. And she's decided she absolutely loves the Mudslides...

So now we have a very casual restaurant as an option, when we're tired of everything else.

PROS: Plenty of parking, good service
CONS: Food is unremarkable
