The head chef here at the Applebee's location in Estero, FL said in his 15 years of working with the company, he has never seen a kitchen overhaul of its kind and touts the upgraded beef selection.
Now their menu includes hand-cut wood fired offerings include USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steaks and Bone-in Pork Chops.
The new certified USDA Choice Hand-Cut Wood Fired Steaks and Bone-In Pork Chops are also hand-cut by trained meat cutters through a comprehensive process to ensure the highest quality, freshness and optimal thickness. Intrigued? I was.

The Wood Fired menu includes:
- • 8 oz. and 6 oz. Hand-cut USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steaks (I went with the 8oz rear and it was delicious, cooked to my liking, thick and not too tough or fatty)
- • Hand-cut Bone-in Pork Chops with Honey Apple Chutney (Raphael tried this item and loved the spicy seasoning)
- • Cedar-grilled Salmon with Maple Mustard Glaze
- • Grilled chicken breast

The new Wood Fired menu items are available at Applebee’s locations owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises in New Jersey, Long Island and 44 restaurants in Florida and Georgia.
Outside of the Wood Fired menu though, we also really enjoyed their Cheeseburger Egg Rolls appetizer with ground beef, cheddar, onion, pickles and signature sauce. It was sinfully cheesy and delicious!
