Applebee’s menu has a ton of hidden carbs so it’s best to review the low carb options before you get there.

Applebee’s was very similar to Chili’s in that there were a bunch of hidden carbs, especially in the salads.
But similar to Sonic, Applebee’s has a good variety of low carb drinks.
Applebee’s nutrition information is easily readable, but their calculator is a better tool since it updates as you add and subtract ingredients.

At Applebee’s you can order a full meal as it comes – normally with a meat and two sides, one of the sides likely being mashed potatoes – but this won’t work for many because of the potatoes, so it’s best to choose your meat and sides a la carte.

Items to Avoid at Applebee’s
Unfortunately, all burgers, bowls, sandwiches, desserts and pastas are close to 100 carbs or over – yikes!
The salads, which you would think are good choices, range from 47 to 121 carbs. With some, the dressing is about half of those carbs, so if you’re looking for a way to make it work, check out their nutrition calculator.
Low Carb Drinks at Applebee’s
Normally I don’t mention drinks above 10 carbs, but since Applebee’s has a good variety just above 10 carbs, I included them. It’s nice to have options other than water, diet soda, coffee and unsweetened tea, right?!
