    Applebee’s is number one with this military veteran. I started going there 2 years ago. I was so impressed with the Restaurant that I bring my family out to eat ,at least 12x per year. It is heart warming to know that we are appreciated ,for our service to our country. I hope to see my fellow Veterans and share a veterans day meal, on 11 November 2011 MSGT ,USAF (Retired)
