I’ve been taking the Applebee’s Lunch Combo Challenge for a month to test out their new lunch combo menu and I’m here to report back about it!  I tried 4 additional lunch combos:

Lunch Combo 1:


-Turkey, Bacon & Avocado Sandwich
4-Cheese Mac & Cheese with Honey Pepper Chicken Tenders

Lunch Combo 2:


-Strawberry & Avocado Salad
Classic Turkey Breast Sandwich

Lunch Combo 3:


-Oriental Chicken Salad
4-Cheese Mac & Cheese with Honey Pepper Chicken Tenders

Lunch Combo 4:

On my last one, I splurged a whole $1 and got a delicious, warm Brownie Bite (with ice cream) with my lunch combo.

-Fried Chicken Salad
Three-Cheese Chicken Penne
-Blue Ribbon Brownie Bite

Overall I was very pleased with my lunches.  They were all very filling and easy on the wallet.  I loved the Mac & Cheese – add a salad and I think it’s the perfect lunch portions and delicious.  Service was great and friendly even with our family of 6 at lunchtime.  If you don’t get a long lunch break at work, I suggest you use their Curbside To-Go and pick up a lunch treat.  I highly recommend spending the extra $1 for the Brownie Bite.

If you’re gluten-free, plan on ordering from the regular menu as the Lunch Combo Menu doesn’t include any gluten-free options.
