Applebee's Bruschetta Burger Menu Picture Vs Reality

Reader Megan is troubled by the strange, slimy cylinder of fries she received from Applebee’s:

I went to dinner at the Applebee’s in Woodland, CA a couple nights ago and ordered their bruschetta burger. As soon as I saw my order, I immediately took a picture and thought Consumerist needed to see it because it fits so well in the ad v. reality posts. The burger itself was a bit sloppy, but still looked similar to the menu picture. The fries, however, were a different story. In the menu photo, “garlic parmesan fries” are served in a ramekin and look quite tasty. Instead, I was served a cylinder of slimy, greasy fries with a couple pieces of parmesan cheese on top.


Ohh, we know where we’re heading for lunch! No, just kidding.
