Applebee's or Chili's?

(I know...I am completely bored right now.)

Just wondering, I personally prefer Applebee's. They have more selective items on their menu if you are dieting. I have not been to Chili's in about 2 I missing something?

  1. Haven't been to either in a number of years, but it seems their food and atmosphere were about equal. Same with TGIFriday's, etc.

    1. I haven't been to either frequently or in a few years, but I preferred Chili's. They had some sort of 7-layer salad the last time I was there, and it was pretty tasty. Applebee's menu seemed to be more, "Here's a chunk of meat and a side dish."

      1. Soup and salad at either is fine.

        1. Southwestern Egg Rolls at Chilis.

          1. If I were forced to go to one, it would be Chili's. They do have some healthy options and are noted on the menu with a symbol of some sort. Have not been to either in years. I do seem to recall Applebee's advertising that they have some items that are listed with Weight Watchers points on them.
