    Confirmed: The Applebees at 40/42 is out of business. Funny that it was just a couple days after Good Times opened right behind them. Evidently staff didn't have any notice.

    If anyone remembers, it was just a couple years ago that the one on US70 in Garner closed down as well. I guess the nearest one left is in Fuquay.

    I wonder if Garner/4042/Smithfield were Corp locations or franchise.?

    I liked that Applebee's put in "local" decorations. Local High School stuff, etc.
    I know the 40/42 group let us do a pancake breakfast for GCAA baseball (???, cant remember what group) as a fund raiser.

    I've always been curious to have a conversation with a kitchen employee of a fast casual restaurant like this to determine if they really 'cook' food. I am sure some of it is, but sauces and other stuff have to come out of a bag/box. It seems like it is just warmed up. Always so rich and salty like it was made in a lab.

    I got a steak from Applebees a few years ago. Had nice grill marks on it but the steak was grey in color. Not just a litle bit. The entire steak was grey. Just like a crayon. Havent been back to one since.
