Applebee's Nutrition

Applebee’s Nutrition Basics

There are some high calorie options on the Applebee’s menu, but there are also plenty of healthy options as well. For instance, the Cheeseburger Sliders with Bacon is just under 1,400 calories, which is roughly the same as a large cheese pizza from most pizzerias. The Crunchy Onion Rings are also very calorific, and it’s not something that looks like it will fill you up.

On the flip side The Grilled Chicken Wanton Tacos is very low in calories. It may not look like it at first glance, but there are only 650 calories here. If you want even less, then you you can get dishes of fewer than 500 calories by focusing on the Sides menu and on the Salad menu. There are also a few other dishes that fit the mold.

Applebee’s Calories

Thanks to the Applebee’s Nutrition Info table above, you have a good idea of how many calories are in your favorite dishes at this restaurant. But how do these compare to other restaurants? Are you getting more for your money and your calories or less? Well, we will show you.

For instance, the Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad contains the same amount of calories as about 7 Original Recipe Drumsticks from the KFC menu; the Artichoke Dip contains roughly the same number of calories as a Big Mac from the McDonalds menu; while both the aforementioned salad and dip contain roughly the same number of calories as the 1/2lb Thickburgers on the Hardee’s menu.

However, just bear in mind that these are two of the higher calorie and higher fat dishes. There are many lower calorie options as well. And while these ones might surprise you because they contain so many calories, there are plenty of others that will surprise you because they contain so few.

Applebee’s Dessert Menu

Speaking of surprise calories, the Applebee’s dessert menu has some of the highest calorie dishes on the menu, as well as some surprisingly low ones. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae has over 1,500 calories. That’s a monumental amount, equivalent to 2 Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls, and around 3 Big Macs. It’s also a lot of sugar to take in a single meal, so be prepared to hit the gym afterwards (or the doctor’s surgery).

If that’s too much sugar for your body to take, then opt for the Sundae Shooter instead. There is a Hot Fudge variety of this dish and it’s divine. What’s more, it’s only 370 calories. You don’t get as much food as you do with the standard sundaes, but it’s a good alternative and one that won’t put you in a diabetic coma.

The highest calories are actually in the Blue Ribbon Brownie, which is a monster at 1600 calories. There is also nearly 80 grams of fat and over 200 grams of carbs. However, you’ll also get a hit of 20 grams of protein, which is roughly the same as a lean chicken breast and amounts to a third of your RDA. Not a big consolation, we know, but it’s something.

Applebee’s Vegetarian Menu

There are plenty of vegetarian options on the Applebee’s menu. These are not limited to a few salads, a few cheese dishes and some desserts either. There is even a Veggie Burger, and it’s one of the better ones we have eaten. Not quite on par with the Garden Burger on the Red Robin menu, but it’s certainly up there.

The vegetarian options are clearly marked and there are more than a dozen of them in total, especially when you start including the sides. There are healthy veggie options, including fresh fruit, and there are unhealthy ones, including cheese fries. So, have your fill, because this is one menu where meat is not the star of the show.

Applebee’s Vegan Menu

Applebee's Menu

There is also an Applebee’s vegan menu. This is not as diverse as the vegetarian menu, but there are a few options. Because the Applebee’s menu is always changing, it is hard to nail these options down. However, there is usually a few decent sides, some fresh fruit and vegetables, some salads and more. Also, they are very accommodating and they will typically serve you any dish you want without the dairy or the meat. So, if there is a salad that contains bacon or a sandwich that contains cheese, just ask them to make it without that ingredient and you have your vegan option.

This works across the board, but there may be some hidden meat and dairy products in certain dishes, so be sure to check with your server in advance.

Applebee’s Gluten-Free Menu

The Applebee’s gluten-free menu is substantial, as big as the vegetarian menu and the vegan menu combined. You can order a number of sides, salads and main meals. There are also plenty of desserts. And as with the vegan options mentioned above, if you want something that is not gluten-free but can be made so with just a few changes, then ask your server to swap a few things.

Cross-contamination may be an issue and it’s very rare that this is not the case. One of the only restaurants we have covered on this site that does promise to have no issues with cross contamination is Chuck-e-Cheese. However, in most cases the restaurants just put this warning there to cover themselves in the event of a major mistake from their servers or chefs. If you let your server know that you have a severe intolerance to gluten then they will be able to avoid contamination for the most part and you should be safe.

Of course, if your intolerance really is that sensitive then you might want to give the Applebee’s menu a miss. Sometimes it just isn’t worth the risk.
