I dont know who the new manager is, but this restaurant now sucks. 2 bad experiences in a row. I won't be going back. Who wants to pay 2.25 for a soda when you can buy a 2 liter for 89 cents? Food is cold, greasy, undercooked or overcooked and if you complain, they always have an excuse. Hope you guys got that new fryer that has been causing all your food to stink.
love it

Please tell me where you shop. Because I want to know where you can get a pepsi for .89 cents!!! I have been paying $1.25 for my pepsi products.
Oh and by the way, since you don't know Applebee's is a corporation and someone from up above makes the prices NOT the managers. Also, I am happy when a manager comes to my table it shows that at least they are aware of the problem so they can fix it or attempt to fix. Not everyone in this town is looking for free food, some are looking for a decent meal at one of the only places to eat in this town.

This is actually a stupid argument. Before applebees shut down (due the owner going bankrupt) the place was crawling with druggies. Corporate bought it out fired hired retrained. some of the old staff are still there but honestly there really aren't any drugs in applebees. kids smoke pot but come on most of them are grown and too broke to buy the damn drugs in the first place. it is hard out there for a server in a small town. and the food the servers eat is "dead" food or lost. cant be sold to a table because it sat in the window too long or was a mistake. it will get thrown away anyway. why waste it. i used to serve it is legal slavery.$2.13 an hour and a couple of dollars off a table hell you are lucky to even make min wage.

Her meth bust made the memphis news.
Who was she letting cook meth in her apartment?
I feel bad for her son. Hopefully he takes a better path in life than his mother.

Her son is probably the one that she was allowing to cook it in her apartment - he is as bad as her!
I be d@mn if I would have taken the rap for anyone else - not with that crap - but then again, it wouldn't have been in my house to begin with.

i thought that was her in the state gazette...she stopped at our table to check on us a few weeks ago and fell all over it....i thought to myself she must have been drinking behind the bar some...but i guess it wasn't alcohol!

She is no longer working at Applebee's so why dont you guys find something better to do than trash someone who made a mistake... We all make mistakes, some bigger than other. She hasnt even been convicted and everyone is already throwing her under the jail. Get a life and find something better to do that bash people when you dont know the whole story...

And DC Resident, she never "fell all over a table". Some stop trying to make Applebee's look bad.

Well I asure you not all are on drugs that work there! but if it concerns you so bad then you should bring one of those home drug tests to your table so you can personaly "drug test" your server.

Guest clearly you have no idea what you talking about. Yes, I have read the paper and from what I see there has only been 1 person in there. Do you not know how many other people work there??? Please bring you drug test bc i am sure a majority of the staff could pass. Just because there is one bad apple doesnt mean the whole barrel is bad...

Because I am tried of seeing people get on here and verbally beating someone down because they made a mistake. If it isn't your life don't worry about it. I think it is so funny how easy it is for people to get on here and talk shit about how bad of a person someone is or how bad they have made their life, but never step back and look at their own. Everyone wants to get on here and act like they are holier than thou, when in reality they are just as wrong. Get a life and find another hobby that doesn't include cutting people down to make yourself feel good... What losers...

Made a mistake? She was cooking METH in her house. Spilling milk is a mistake. Cooking dope and doing dope is no mistake! Are you retarded?
Yes there are a FEW employees at applebee's that would pass a drug screen. Just because you're not smoking meth doesn't mean they aren't smoking pot on the back dock, or taking xan by the handful. If your MANAGER is going to jail for meth, that speaks volumes on the business on a local level. Poorly run, no doubt about it.
The only people defending someone like her are the people who think its acceptable to get high on meth, stay awake for 3 days, and then work in a public place where children are present.
Disgusting! I haven't eaten there in a few years, and won't be back.
The State Gazette confirmed my suspicions that they're all a bunch of junkies. What a shame!

People with addictions are not all evil people. The are consumed with their addiction and make bad choices but these people that do this are loved by their families and friends. When you actually know a person and their heart, it makes it really hard to write them off because they are an addict. I'm glad that there was a stop to the bad behavior and poor choices. An intervention made by police or loved ones is sometimes the only thing that will wake a person up. So instead of throwing ill words toward someone that clearly needs help, say a prayer that none of your loved ones will fall into this awful disease. I asure you that none of them woke up and said I think I will become an addict today.

I am also including some definitions for you.

Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry

Retardation is the act or result of delaying; the extent to which anything is retarded or delayed; that which retards or delays.

Oh and just for you-- Ignorance is a state of being uninformed or lack of knowledge.

But now you have been informed so you can no longer hide behind such derogatory statements.

No I do not think it is acceptable to cook or smoke meth, but just because someone makes that choice in their life it doesn't give you the right to bash them. And no a manager getting in trouble for drugs doesn't say anything about the people the work for them. And it seems like you know a good deal of personal information, so it sounds like to me you are a back stabbing friend. And the State Gazette didn't confirm the all people at Applebee's are "junkies".. It confirmed that one person at Applebee's made a bad choice and was caught.. Oh and thanks for not coming to Applebee's we don't want assholes like you there anyways...:)
Yea Ok

Exactly my point... a CHOICE is not a MISTAKE.
And its funny that you think I know alot of personal information. That indicates that what I'm saying has some truth in it.
Rest assured that I am NOT, nor have I ever been, a friend to the employees at Applebee's. I just know the majority are using some form of drugs. Another example would be your bar tender.
Stop defending the establishment. I'm not bashing Gwen, but I am saying she made the place look even worse than it already did by appearing on the front page of the paper!

They need to clean house with regard to their management staff. Poor management results in poor service.
