Sandwiches in Review: Applebee’s Cheeseburger Sliders

May 20, 2011

Applebee’s is a family restaurant/bar known for their appetizer specials, trivia nights, and all around ubiquitousness.  They have a number of burger and sandwich offerings, and looking back through previous entries, I was surprised to discover I haven’t reviewed anything of theirs yet.  Well, that changes today.  Among their various and sundry appetizers they have a cheeseburger slider platter, which comes with fries and can include bacon for an added fee.

It's three, three, THREE times the tiny cheeseburger!!

The sliders consist of a small patty, cheese, diced onions, Applebee’s “signature burger sauce”, and bacon on a ciabatta-type roll.  I’ve mentioned before that I’m not usually a big fan of sliders, especially when they’re presented as a full meal option.  Applebee’s wisely avoids this problem, and as an appetizer/light meal, I really enjoyed them.  The patties were good, and although there was only about a half-strip of bacon on each, it really made a difference in the flavor.  The sauce was good too, it was somewhere in between a regular A1-style steak sauce and Steak and Shake’s Frisco sauce.  The ciabatta roll was a nice touch, it added a sense of elegance to the burgers which a mini hamburger bun couldn’t have.

The Cheeseburger Slider Platter costs around $7, with an additional 50 cents for bacon.  However, Applebee’s offers nightly half off appetizer deals, which I would highly recommend you take advantage of.  It’s a great appetizer, and with another small order it could make a great meal.
