This post is sponsored by Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill + Bar. I was offered a free meal in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are my own.
Can you believe that the last time I ate at Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill + Bar was back in 2006??? That is just crazy. I was pregnant with my son and was out shopping for baby apparel with a friend. We stopped at Applebee’s after shopping and ate all the things. Fast forward 12 years later, I am now a single mom of two awesome kids who are 12 and 9. They love Applebee’s and eat their often with their dad. When I was invited to go and try their Big and Bold Grill Combos, my kids could not contain their excitement. We ate at the South Tampa location which is conveniently located a few miles from our house.
Upon walking in, were were greeted with beaming smiles from the staff and seated at a nice, comfy booth. My son ordered his favorite item, wings and my daughter had her favorite, which is a kid’s cheeseburger. I on the other hand, was hungry and in need of a glass, or two, of wine after just getting back from a food conference in Utah and delaing with multiple flight delays.
So let’s talk Big and Bold Grill Combos. This was my first time hearing about them and let me tell you, Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill + Bar has knocked it out of the park. These fantastic combos offer something more for everyone’s taste buds. You get the choice of two bolder grilled entrées and both include a few sides that is MORE than enough for one darn good satisfying meal. Starting at only $12.99*, the price is just right for those on a budget like myself.
Bigger, Bolder Grill Combos include these entrée pairing options:
- Half Rack Baby Back Ribs with Spicy Texas BBQ or Honey BBQ Sauce & 6 oz. USDA Select Top Sirloin
- Half Rack Baby Back Ribs with Spicy Texas BBQ or Honey BBQ Sauce & Grilled Chicken Breast with Fireball® Whisky-infused Sauce
- Crispy Shrimp & Grilled Salmon with Honey BBQ Sauce
- Grilled Shrimp Skewer with Honey BBQ Sauce & Grilled Chicken Breast with Fireball® Whisky-infused Sauce
- Grilled Shrimp Skewer with Honey BBQ Sauce, Crispy Shrimp & 6 oz. USDA Select Top Sirloin
They sound amazing don’t they? In addition, all Grill Combos are served with steamed broccoli, garlic mashed potatoes, signature coleslaw and onion tanglers. Let’s just say I left nice and full.
I was trying to eat in the healthier side, so I went with the Grilled Shrimp Skewer with Honey BBQ Sauce & Grilled Chicken Breast with Fireball® Whisky-infused Sauce. Holy moly was it delicious. I loved the Fireball® Whisky-infused sauce and literally licked my fingers to be sure to get every last ounce of sauce.
There are no words to describe how happy my kids were to be eating at Applebee’s. Just look at that face!
When the kids are happy, mom is happy so of course I let them get dessert and it gave me a chance to sneak a few bites. When it comes to dessert, Applebee’s does not disappoint and their Triple Chocolate Meltdown is INSANE!
Needless to say, we polished it off and my kids were telling me I was the best mom ever for taking them to Applebee’s.
Be sure to hurry and stop by your neighborhood Applebee’s restaurant and try these incredible combos while they are available.
Thank you again Applebee’s for the wonderful evening!
