Applebees 2 for $20 and 2 for $25 Menu Items
I recently partnered with Applebee’s to share with you the new Applebees 2 for $20 menu offerings including a Caprese Mozzarella Burger (what I ordered!), their Caprese Mozzarella Chicken and their Spinach & Artichoke Chicken Cavatappi.
New to the 2 for $20 menu:
- NEW Caprese Mozzarella Burger: Sautéed garlic and onions seared into an all-beef patty and topped with balsamic aioli, grilled tomatoes, grilled red onions, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil. Served with classic fries.
- NEW Caprese Mozzarella Chicken: Grilled chicken breast, fresh mozzarella, tomato, red onion, basil, and balsamic glaze. Served with garlic mashed potatoes.
- NEW Spinach & Artichoke Chicken Cavatappi: Grilled chicken breast, cavatappi pasta, artichoke, grape tomatoes, Parmesan and crispy spinach leaves.
New to the 2 for $25 menu:
- Firecracker Shrimp Cavatappi: Crispy sriracha shrimp, cavatappi pasta, sautéed zucchini, red bell pepper, red onion and Parmesan sriracha cream sauce.
Both the Applebees 2 for $20 and 2 for $25 menus still feature some old favorites.
Date nights at Applebee’s are the best! I ordered the new Caprese Mozzarella Burger and it was amazing. My hubby ordered off of the 2 for $25 menu (did you know that you can combine items from the $20 and $25 menu? You can!) for his main course. He went with the Fiesta Lime Chicken (one of their full-size entrees that is included in this combo deal!) for his entree option – I was shocked because usually he’s a classic bacon cheeseburger guy but this menu pushed him out of his comfort zone – plus it’s a great value!
They combine the prices, and your total ends up being $23.50.) With both of these dishes, you can also select either one full-size appetizer (I highly recommend the artichoke dip!) or two salads, so we selected the salad to arrive before our entree.
Our thoughts about the Applebee’s Menu Items
We were very happy with our meal! I like that we can enjoy great food, and plenty of it, without breaking the bank. I can’t make some of my favorite recipes for this price, so dining out with the 2 for $20 menu options is a great win for this mom when I don’t feel like cooking!
For a limited time you can grab ALL of this goodness: side salads, mozzarella sticks, boneless wings and MORE!! Menu items may vary by location, so check in with your local Applebee’s to see menu offerings and favorites.
Other menu favorites include their Pico De Gallo, their Bourbon Street Chicken and their Oriental Chicken Salad is probably my all time favorite Applebee’s menu item. It’s my go to when I’m at a loss for what to order. Also always a good bet is their Cedar Grilled Lemon Chicken or for kids, you can’t go wrong with the Chicken Tenders, Classic Cheeseburger and I highly recommend asking for the classic hot buffalo sauce (no matter what you order!) .. it’s amazing!
As I mentioned above, I’m also a fan of their appetizer options. Tortilla strips are a good go to with their black bean corn salsa and their wonton tacos are also really good but overall, you can’t go wrong with any of their appetizer choices. I can’t tell you the exact appetizers to try, you’ll just have to try them all out for yourself and find YOUR favorite!
They also offer great prices on kids meals, so eating at Applebee’s is a nice choice for our family, especially with these new menu items and value menu. We were very pleased and will definitely visit again!
If you enjoy happy hour, make sure to check out their classic drinks, local drafts and fancier offerings (Dekuyper Watermelon Pucker or Bella Sera Moscato, anyone?) Their bar makes for a fun date night experience and along with old favorite alcoholic beverages they always have new boozy beverages and your local Applebee bar might even have unique drink offerings. A few favorites that we’ve tried in the past are the Tropical Piña Colada Twist, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and they recently added a New Berry Merry Colada but that might be just a holiday offering – however, depending on your bartender, they might be able to whip one up for you – it never hurts to ask because usually they go out of their way for Applebee’s guests!
*also, don’t forget about Applebee’s carside takeout, Applebee’s gift card options and make sure to follow them on social media and in the new Applebee’s mobile app for lots of fun options, online menu updates, special menu promotions, coupon offerings and more! Placing online orders is easy and sometimes your favorite comfort food is just what you need!
