Thank you John. It’s fun to start the day off with a chuckle:
“In an earlier post, C&L and many other sites caught David Brooks say this:
DAVID BROOKS, “NEW YORK TIMES: Obama‘s problem is he doesn‘t seem like a guy who can go into an Applebee‘s salad bar and people think he fits in naturally there. He has to change to be more like that Applebee‘s guy and as he‘s done that he‘s become much more transactional. Much more, I‘m going to deliver this and this and this to you on policy.
C&Ler Mitzi left this in the comment section:
I called my Applebee’s today to make sure I was correct and they do not have a salad bar. Just goes to show how much these people who make these comments have no idea how “regular people” live their lives.
I called an Applebee’s also and they told me that none of their restaurants have a salad bar. David, sometimes the jokes write themselves. What an idiot.”

My wife is a restaurant reviewer for the Westchester section of the Times. Recently, all the suburban critics were assigned chain eateries. Although some in the media made fun of the multi-page feature for being elitist itself, it was a very popular . She wrote the review on Applebee’s, and I can confirm, no salad bar.
Hi Ronnie –
Thank you for the confirmation!
My significant other is a self-proclaimed “chain restaurant aficionado.” I bet he’d love to read your wife’s review. Do you have a link to the feature?
They have each review as a separate piece in their archive, but here’s the one on Applebees …
On the same day, they also did TGI Friday’s, Red Lobster, P.F. Chang, and the Cheesecake Factory — all were pretty positive, if not raves. And yes, the talapia at Applebees was very good!
