I got take out last week. Three entrees, two appetizers. After placing the order they said ten minutes. the chinese place. There was NO WAY you could have made my meals in 10 minutes even with everything all prepped. So, I believe that it must be just heat & serve. Now, I hear Outback makes all their stuff fresh. Anyone know about that ??
chinese restaurants use a few ingredients and cook non-stop all day... chinese food is still not healthy but it isn't frozen.

Lol. Applebees is a joke. They treat employees like servants and push pre packaged heat and serve products off as fresh made food. In addition the meat is injected with a solution as well as the shrimp. But hey it's cheap right. And who really cares about what goes their bodies as long as it's quick. Lol.
Oh yea chefs my ass..

My boyfriend told me that a friend of his who worked as a "cook" for
Applebee's told him that they didn't actually cook anything there, just
used microwaves to heat pre-cooked food.
Just a few weeks ago, a close friend participated in a fundraiser in which
she an her co-workers served food at Applebee's for tips (which were
donated to a local charity). She confirmed the pervasive use of
microwaves instead of grills or stove tops.
I'd like to know if this is true. I don't eat at Applebee's anyway (the
food is disgusting), but I would like to know the facts.
OF COURSE it's pre-made -- how do you think they get the same portions and taste in all of those stores?? Same for any chain restaurant -- you don't really think the Red Lobster is serving fresh seafood, do you?? If you want fresh food, go to a locally owned restaurant. ALL chains use frozen food. They might not all microwave it, but it's pre-prepped and frozen. It's called 'Portion control'.

All franchise chains serve heated frozen food - Olive Garden, Applebee's, fast food burger joints, Red Lobster... Cook at home or go to a quality local restaurant

Same as Olive Garden. It's just glorified fast food. People are so stupid to think they are getting something decent at these places. Utica is full of them.
