Applebees is a pub restaurant with steak and potatos highlighting the menu. We found a variety of choices here for the low carb / Atkins diet!
True, there were no appetizers that were low carb friendly. I suppose you could get the buffalo wings "very light" and just count that as a few.
A number of their salads were just perfect for low carb. My boyfriend ordered the large steak salad with no dressing. It was more than he could eat, the salad greens were fresh and varied (not just iceberg). There was also tomato and onions.
A number of steak items were on the menu, as well as a few unbreaded fish. I had the steak tips with a great sauce. Just be sure to tell them to substitute out the potato and give you their vegetables instead. The vegetables of the day when we were broccoli, squash and carrots. Carrots are medium carb-rich so I just avoided those. The steak was delicious. The sauces there probably have flour and sugar in them, so don't dunk your items into it - but the light flavoring you get from whatever is stuck onto the meat is a great taste for maybe 2-3 g total for the entire meal.
Another time that I went, I had the tilapia (white fish) with vegetables. The vegetables were broccoli, squash and carrots. I just avoided the carrots. Yes, it was served over rice, but I just ate the fish and veggies and it was quite filling.
Some water or wine to drink, and you're all set! I really liked this and will gladly go back.
