Applebee's restaurant was started in the mid 1980s and has since grown into the largest casual dining chain in the world. This particular branch can be found in the shopping plaza at the corner of Route 312 and Independent Way near the Interstate 84 entrance ramp. Popular menu items include flavor-loaded steaks, sizzling entrees and a bunch of under-550 calorie options. It also has a large variety of delicious desserts, a fully-stocked bar and carside to-go service for those who adhere to a strict schedule.
