Enjoy a date night to your local Applebees restaurant on us! Be sure to check out the New Big and Bold Grill Combos!
We don’t go out to dinner by ourselves very often. So when we do, it’s about as picture-worthy as going to prom! Ha.
Last week we had a church conference to go to and decided to go out to dinner beforehand. We both like Applebees so we stopped by the one just around the corner from our church in Yuba City. Applebees always has great combos to choose from. We’ve had their 2 for $20 combos and this time tried out the New Big and Bold Grill Combo menu.
But first, appetizers. We shared a pan of Steak Quesadillas and they were fantastic. I especially liked the salsa verde that was served along side.
Oh wait, did I say that we went out to eat alone? Silly me. When you have a nursing baby you are never alone! We welcomed the presence of little Mac since he is super cute, super happy, and great entertainment. He wanted to touch EVERYTHING.
The New Big and Bold Grill Combos each come with two entrees and two sides.
I selected a grilled chicken breast with pico de gallo, a grilled shrimp skewer with lemon sauce, garlicky green beans with bacon, and garlic mashed potatoes.
Derrick had a grilled chicken breast with pico de gallo, baby back ribs, garlicky green beans with bacon, and french fries (bottomless). It isn’t very often that you have french fries so seasoned and crispy that a dipping sauce simply isn’t required. I’m not sure what they use on their fries, but we both agreed that they were perfect.
The grilled chicken was incredibly juicy, the garlicky green beans were very flavorful and not over-cooked, and the ribs and shrimp were perfection. We enjoyed a strawberry lemonade, mango frozen lemonade, an appetizer, and two entrees for just under $40. The baby shenanigans and adult conversation were priceless!
Now we’d like to pay it forward! We’re giving away a $40 gift card to one of you and entering is super simple. Just tell me (comment) who you’d share a meal with at Applebees and you will be entered to win a date night on us. Whether it’s a romantic night out, a girls night, guys night, a mommy-daughter lunch, father-son dinner, or any other combination, Applebees has something for everyone! Giveaway ends Friday, June 16th. Good luck! Thank you, Applebees, for sponsoring our date night!
Congratulations to the winner, Carol Sue!
