Review of Applebee's

12 Colonnade Way, State College, PA 16803

Overall Rating


My favorite meal is the Fiesta lime chicken. However, if you have celiac, order this WITHOUT the tortilla strips. While they are naturally gluten free, they fry them themselves with other foods (such as the breaded chicken). I have been told by the staff many times that the tortilla strips are safe for me to eat, only to have the answer change when I ask if they're fried with anything else. This item is listed as gluten free without an changes needed, so beware - this may be the same with other "gluten free" options on the menu.
