Call me soulless. Call me unrefined. You can even call me mindless.
But here's the reason I love getting food from places like Applebee's, which is believed to be the largest chain of casual-dining restaurants in the country:
Last night, after an unusually long work day, I found myself hungry and wanting to chow down in front of my TV at about 10:20 p.m. Well, that doesn't leave many options for anyone who lives in the Shreveport-Bossier area, does it?
So, I put in a to-go order from the Applebee's on Airline Drive and got to the restaurant within a few minutes. My food was already waiting on me. Since I eat from there so often, I didn't even bother to check the to-go bag.
Well, I got home and realized they totally got my order wrong. I'm on a bit of a health kick, so imagine my disdain when I opened up the container and saw some sort of breaded chicken, cheese and lettuce in a soft tortilla wrap. There was Thousand Island dressing on the side.
But I was too hungry to worry about all that. Within minutes, the container was empty and I was full.
That's the point: I have no idea what dish I ordered from Applebee's. I've never ordered it before. I probably won't order it again. But it was good and reasonably priced. And I didn't even ask for it.
That's a great restaurant, if you ask me.
