    That Fire Pit Bacon Burger sounds all kinds of good….it just gets better with each new word in the description. It’s hard for me to spend my money at one of these faceless chain restaurants. I would much prefer to patronize my local burger pit. Still those look pretty damn tempting.

  2. Ryan says:

    Agree…Fire Pit Bacon Burger looks great. Surf and Turf Burger, burger topped with shrimp? I’ll pass.

  3. Adam says:

    Applesbees is an expert at making stuff look better than it actually is when you go there.

  4. Adam Bomb says:

    Adam speaks the truth. I’m never too impressed with Applebee’s when I go there. I had the A1 Steakhouse burger a while back, and it was just OK.

  5. Last time I was at Applebee’s, I had the Tyler Florence Burger that was on the menu. I think that was 3 years ago and that was the reason that it has been 3 years….

    I briefly worked at Applebee’s as a chef years ago and I wouldn’t feed the food we made to a dog. I sold my soul back then and I’m still trying to get it back. I wouldn’t be surprised if the winner of this contest was made to sign a waiver that would not hold Applebee’s liable for any future hospital bills or health problems.

  7. @Francois – Can you give us some examples? I’m just curious.

  8. Adam Bomb says:

    Yeah, I want to hear some dirt!

    I may have missed this… but why are they calling them ‘realburgers’? is just because they are big? or is it something against all the sliders you see everywhere?

    I was wondering what made them ‘real’ when i saw the commercial.
    I probably just missed something though.

  10. Adam Bomb says:

    I think that may just be a gimmicky name they slapped on this promotion to sort of say “These are the real deal” or something.

  11. John says:

    That whole RealBurgers thing threw me off too. Are they implying that all over Applebees burgers are FakeBurgers? Applebees is serving some pretty nasty stuff. Can’t say I frequent there.

  12. John says:

    All other, whoops

  13. Bear Silber says:

    @John – I was going to say the exact same thing! Which ones are the Fakeburgers?
