As an off-topic, I'd personally correct that to:
It is Applebees that has the sub-par menu Ate there once, and that was once too many.
POD, and not just because of the generally sub-par food. I'm a vegetarian (I eat no red meat, poultry or seafood, but I do eat eggs and dairy), and there was absolutely NOTHING on their lunch menu I could eat without making a special request--e.g. "please leave the chicken off the salad." Yes, even their salads, every single one,
had animal flesh on them, and there were no vegetarian entrees.
Granted, this Applebee's was in a part of my state where there's a lot of cattle ranching--but even in cattle country, I've been able to find at least one thing on the menu I can eat at various types of restaurants: sandwich shops, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Thai. That was the first and only time I'd gone to a restaurant with my mother and not been able to find ANYTHING vegetarian on the regular menu.
