We tried Applebees in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, on Monday and were somewhat disappointed. My son did find something to eat there that we felt comfortable with, but when it arrived there were fries on the plate touching the fahita and since the menu didn't say it came with fries, we hadn't checked them. Upon checking, the server came back and said that they did not contain any peanut or soy. I then asked if the oil they were cooked in was only for the fries, or for other things. She checked and reported back that almost everything was cooked in the same oil. We sent the fahita back and received a fresh one minus the fries. This is a restaurant that has tried to do something about allergies, but hasn't quite got it. I intend to talk to the manager in the near future - I don't think the staff have been educated regarding allergies, though someone on the staff has made an effort to list ingredients of all their food items. Has anyone else, either in Canada or the U.S., tried Applebees?
