At some point in the past few years, we just stopped going out to eat. Three kids, one income, and busy schedules have us running from event to event so it became hard to do relaxing dinners out. As a result, I became queen of the quick and easy weeknight dinner that could have us out of the house and on the go. So, really, eating out at all is a huge treat.
But, a steak dinner out? It must be my anniversabirthday. Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar doesn’t think that a nice steak dinner at a restaurant should be a once-a-year event and are giving you a chance to enjoy a well-deserved steak at an awesome price – no special occasion required. From now until November 13th, customers can enjoy Applebee’s famed wood-fired USDA Choice Top Sirloin steak and two delectable sides, all for just $9.99.
After a long day taking pictures at the pumpkin patch in Snohomish, WA, we headed to Applebee’s on 134th Place SE, just off of Seattle Hill Road in Everett before we made the drive home. It had been a full day of corn mazes, chasing kids around the patch, and stomping through the mud, so we were all ready to sit down and enjoy a delicious meal out, and Applebee’s fit the bill perfectly. Some people may think we're crazy for taking the whole family out for our steak dinner, but that's kind of the point. Any day can be steak-worthy, even if it does involve worn-out and starving kids. If by chance yours are too tired, you can spring for the at-table entertainment and give them the Applebee's ordering tablet to play games on for $1.99.
To kick off our steak meal, we started with my favorite drink from anywhere, ever: the Applebee's Perfect Margarita. It had been years since I last had one, and it was just as amazing as I remembered. Maybe even better. We both decided to order the USDA Choice Top Sirloin steaks to try out the $9.99 deal. I got the 6oz with garlic mashed potatoes and garlicky green beans. Hubby got the 6oz and added parmesan shrimp, steamed broccoli, and cheddar and bacon potatoes. The kids each went for the Really Really Hungry meals with French bread pizza and sides, and a drink. And, then the kids talked us into dessert. Since we never go out, we agreed. Just this once.
Now at Applebee’s, quality steak isn’t just reserved for special occasions. Got through the day? Steak dinner earned. Had a rough week at work? Steak dinner earned. Finished your homework? Steak dinner. Got through conference week? Yep, you get a steak dinner, too. You need to hurry because this deal only lasts a few more weeks, so be sure to head in to a participating restaurant near you and check it out before it’s gone.
