APPLEBEE’S. GOOD FOOD. GOOD PEOPLE.
Applebee’s started with the same philosophy followed today – focused on serving good food to good people. Today, what was once a popular neighborhood restaurant has grown to become a popular restaurant in neighborhoods all across North America – with almost 2,000 locations and counting.
Founded nearly three decades ago on the principles of exceptional value and family fun, Applebee's Services, Inc., operates what is today the largest casual-dining chain in the world. This prominent eatery draws people of all ages and lifestyles with its fun, family-friendly atmosphere and signature bar and grill menu.
Applebee's continues to grow and prosper, and further differentiates itself with innovative attractions, like the popular Carside to Go service available at many of its restaurants, and its successful Weight Watchers agreement, enabling it to cater to those preferring less-caloric alternatives. Currently, there are over 1990 Applebee's restaurants operating system-wide in 49 states, 15 international countries and one U.S. territory.
- Famous Dave's -
Famous Dave’s Legendary Pit Barbeque restaurant is an award-winning BBQ chain with more than 180 locations across the country. Our success is the result of a commitment to the finest food and the best dining experience known to barbeque. Every customer is treated as though they were a "guest" at one of Dave’s famous backyard barbeques.
People always ask if there is a real Dave behind Famous Dave’s. There is. His name is Dave Anderson. He is a living and breathing barbeque encyclopedia. A guy who’s spent more than half his life going back to the drawing board in pursuit of barbeque perfection. He only approves menu items that are worth driving one hundred miles for. Yep, Dave’s truly the real deal.
The menu features hickory-smoked ribs and barbequed meats, smokin' sandwiches, mouthwatering burgers, tasty salads and homestyle desserts. Having won over 800 awards for everything from “Best Sauce” to “Best Ribs” to “Best Cookbook”, Famous Dave’s has received wide acclaim from customers and critics alike.
