Just over a year after opening its second location on Oahu, Applebee’s Grill & Bar at Ka Makana Alii has garnered a loyal following of diners hungry for true all-American cuisine. And it’s no wonder why, as the menu presents mouthwatering combinations for a range of palates from land and sea.
If you’re looking for a juicy burger to dig into, the restaurant’s customer favorite Whisky Bacon Burger ($16.99) is a prime selection that overflows with saucy Fireball Whisky goodness and is piled high with onion tanglers, bacon, Pepper Jack cheese and caramelized onions.
The menu also presents other viable options on its 2 for $35, and 2 for $30 meal deals. Ricardo Harrison, restaurant manager of Applebee’s Oahu locations, explains the deals come with two entrees from a pre-set selection, as well as two side salads (house or Caesar) and one appetizer — Spinach and Artichoke dip, Crunchy Onion Rings, Boneless Wings or Mozzarella Sticks — to share.
Ready your forks for Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp ($18.99 regular) that comes out sizzling on a cast iron skillet, or Fiesta Lime Chicken ($17.99 regular) that arrives blanketed with melted white and yellow cheddar cheese. Both can be found on the 2 for $30 deal.
For some finger-licking fun, opt for Double-Glazed Baby Back Ribs that can be ordered as a full rack for $23.99 or a half rack for $17.99. Even better, the half rack also can be opted as part of the 2 for $35 meal deal.
Stop into any Applebee’s location for lunch, dinner or even some bar time with friends. With the NFL football season creeping up around the corner, Harrison advises customers to be on the lookout for more specialties coming down the pipe. But until then, you have plenty of time to chow down on your favorite dishes at this top-notch eatery.
