Applebee’s in Cedar Rapids IA, Blairsferry Rd.

Unfortunately our experience at Applebees was quite unforgetable. We placed our order which included Buffalo wings. When they arrived the celery which was included was rubbery. This however was not the main problem, rubbery celery can be overlooked and excused.

The celery however was also completely unwashed and quite completely covered with dirt! Our server was shocked as was the manager. Needless to say, we did not stay but left immediately which even the manager could blame us for.

It left us wondering, if the dirt covered celery could get past the person who put it there, past the kitchen manager and past our server, what assurance did we have that the rest of our food was not also dirty or even worse and what assurnace did we have that anyone even cared either way. Less than perfect food, OK. Food with dirt on it? Unacceptable.
