Looks good, and they have lamb! And yeah, once you get done with tax and tip it's about $20 USD, and that's a lot for a burger. The good places end up around $13-15 usually though, so not that much more than normal.

Having been trying to stick to our diet this thread makes me slightly sad... It's like "OOOOOOOOOOHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I want that so bad!!" And my love handles are like "Boy you best don't." :cry: The burger struggle is real today.

We normally try to avoid chain restaurants, but Michael's daughter and her family bought us a $50 Applebees gift card for Christmas so we went there last night for dinner.

They had been advertising $7.99 burgers and $1 Bahama Mama's in attempt to to boom reeling sales in recent years, so I was somewhat excited to check out one of the burgers.

I had the whiskey bacon burger which is advertised as "Caramelized onions and bacon seared into an all-beef patty and topped with pepper jack cheese, crispy onions, bacon and a Fireball Whisky-infused steak sauce."

I came away pretty underwhelmed, really. Yes, there was plenty of crunchy bacon, but I could not taste the pepper jack cheese and the steak sauce tasted pretty much like barbeque sauce. The burger was actually dry and overcooked despite ordering it "pink" (they don't offer rare, medium rare or medium).

I'll stick with my diners, dives and Yelp reviews to quell my burger fix from now on. This was just too "meh" for me and stresses why we avoid chain restaurants and fast food joints.

Looks great on the menu, but tasted very underwhelming and super SALTY.

I was so underwhelmed that I didn't even bother taking a picture of mine to compare it to this one from their website. lol

^ Sorry that the taste of it didn't live up to the photo of it, Phil. It still looks nice, all the same.

^ My version looked like a smooshed down, much weaker/greasier version than that. :lol:

^ Seems to me, that all advertised burgers with photos, rarely come to you looking like the photo shows them to be. :|

That's because the food in the photos isn't entirely made of food.

^ Yeah, things I've read and seen in regards to food advertising is pretty trippy, sometimes out and out gross, LOL!

I do get a kick out of all the plastic food displays I've seen in Japan. Those are amazing, and some times the food
actually comes out looking like what's on display in front, heh.
