  1. Applebee’s is a good choice, I like them. I suspect if you like them, you’d also like Houlihan’s.

    Any particular favorite at Applebee’s?

  2. I don’t remember a particular flavor, Tim. I’ve been there only once; but I do remember that their meat was the one most closely resembling my Paraguayan BBQs.
