6 Best Burgers at Applebee’s
From the classic cheeseburger to the more innovative quesadilla burger, Applebee’s burgers are made with an all-beef patty and served with classic fries.
While many items at Applebee’s taste good, the delicious handcrafted burgers make up some of the most popular items on the Applebee’s menu.
In this article, we’ve rounded up the best Applebee’s burgers to help you decide what to order next time you’re craving a burger.
6. Impossible Cheeseburger
Like many other restaurants, Applebee’s is beginning to diversify its menu to accommodate those with dietary restrictions. The Impossible Cheeseburger is Applebee’s answer to the challenge.
The burger patty, free from meat and made from soy protein, potato protein, and sunflower oil, is combined with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles.
The burger is also served on a brioche bun with a side of fries.
It can be customized by adding ingredients, changing the cheese or bun, and removing any of the vegetables on the burger.
Coming out to 1050 calories, the Impossible Cheeseburger is an excellent choice for those who don’t eat meat, and though very similar, it isn’t quite the same as a regular beef burger.
5. Quesadilla Burger
Continuing with the “Tex-Mex” flavor that Applebee’s loves to bring into many of their foods, the Quesadilla Burger makes for a delicious alternative to the regular burger.
The “burger” stuffed between tortilla wraps includes beef patties, Pepper Jack cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, pico de gallo, lettuce, and Applebee’s homemade Mexi-ranch sauce.
The burger can be customized by removing or adding ingredients, but it isn’t quite as customizable as the other burger options. It’s also served with French fries.
At 1620 calories, this burger is a great choice for those feeling adventurous or just can’t get enough of the “Tex-Mex” flavor.
4. Classic Burger
Sometimes, a regular old burger is what you’re looking for after a long day at work or on the road. The Classic Burger is great for those with “old-fashioned” taste buds.
The classic burger is served on a brioche bun with a juicy beef patty, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and a side of fries.
For those who want something easy and predictable, this has to be your go-to pick.
