The 2 for $20 menu offers a variety of 12 choices, allowing guests to choose one appetizer and two full-size entrées for the combined price of $20.
To decide on this year’s featured fare, the brand took to social media to poll fans on their favorite menu items. The new 2 for $20 menu features a selection of popular dishes, including the Quesadilla Burger, Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp and Grilled Chicken Wonton Taco Appetizers.
“The 2 for $20 menu is a great opportunity for our guests to mix up their choices and try new flavors, so it’s important to create dishes that are familiar but still really ‘wow’,” said Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer, Applebee’s Executive Chef. “From carefully selecting the best ingredients to preparing them in-house daily, this menu features unique flavor profiles that are favorites of our fans.”
The Quesadilla Burger is cooked with fresh, never frozen, USDA inspected ground chuck and freshly prepared Pico de Gallo, made with tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and jalapenos, all fresh and chopped by hand daily. Fans of southern cooking can enjoy Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp, prepared with freshly sautéed onion, mushrooms and crispy red potatoes. Finally, for those seeking a playful interpretation of Asian cuisine, Applebee’s freshly fries wonton shells in-house daily, along with their signature slaw and fresh cilantro for the Grilled Chicken Wonton Tacos.

Applebee’s Happy Hour
Applebee’s still has Happy Hour at most locations, although many do not refer to it as “Happy Hour” and instead advertise late-night appetizer specials. Applebee’s Happy Hour menus and Happy Hour times vary by location, so please contact your local Applebee’s for details. Many Applebee’s locations have select appetizers for half price after 9 pm on weekdays and after 10 pm on weekends, but this is not a general rule.
