The good news for Applebee fans is that the popular restaurant chain is now offering delivery through its online ordering platforms. Ordering a delivery for your Applebee’s favorite using their website or app has never been easier.
Applebee’s delivery orders can be placed using their website or app, usually, 30 minutes after the restaurant opens and 30 minutes before it closes. Applebee’s delivery fee depends on the total of the order, and some restaurants may require a minimum. Most menu items can be delivered, including wines if your state allows.
More restaurants are opening up their online ordering platforms, separate from third-party delivery apps. This is the latest development, and it can be difficult to follow how each restaurant handles online orders. In this article, we will cover the details of Applebee’s delivery and ordering, receiving, and cancellation process.
How Does Applebee’s Delivery Work?
Users can place Applebee delivery orders through their website or app. You can browse the menu options available for delivery, add items to your cart, and check out online. In addition to delivery, you can order online pickups at Applebee’s Carside To-go and at restaurants.
Before placing an order, you should check to see if your local Applebee restaurant participates in the delivery program. Because some restaurants are smaller or larger than residential areas, some locations are unable to offer delivery.
Be sure to find the location of your restaurant on Applebee’s website, and it will tell you if they participate in Carside To Go, restaurant pickups, or delivery orders.
Keep in mind that even if your local restaurant does not offer delivery, you may still be able to place a takeout order for which you will need to place an order yourself.
Check the checkmarks below your restaurant’s location to specify which options are available, as they will explain what you can or can’t do at that particular location.
How to Order from Applebee’s Online
After visiting the Applebee website, go to the top right corner, where a restaurant may already be listed. If this is the restaurant from which you want to place a delivery order, click “Start Order”. If you need to relocate a restaurant, select “Change Restaurant”.
Once you are satisfied with the location, select “Start Order” in the same dropdown, or you can select “Order Online” from Applebee’s main menu. Either way, you’ll be able to start adding items to your cart.
When you go to the next screen, you will need to choose whether you want to order “Carside To Go”, “Pickup Inside”, or “Delivery”. It’s a must-have, for any Affiliate, promoting any program.
Once the order screen appears, you can browse the menu, add items to your cart, and once you’re done, go to checkout. You will then continue your payment method on the checkout screen. After entering your payment information, you will receive verification and tracking information.
If you want to know when to pick up or expect your delivery, do not leave this screen, otherwise, you will lose your ability to track the order.
After your order arrives, you will need to provide an ID if you order alcohol. If you have not ordered alcohol, you can make a contactless delivery with the driver and leave your items at the desired location.
What Is Applebee’s Delivery Menu?
Applebee’s delivery menu includes almost the entire restaurant menu within it. While Applebee’s menu is extensive, the restaurant strives to make a large range of its menus available for delivery.
The categories you will find on Applebee’s delivery menu include:
- Beverages: signature cocktails (alcoholic), beer and wine, non-alcoholic
- Meat: steaks, ribs, chicken, seafood, burgers
- Kids Menu
- The 2 for $22 menu
- Catering and extras
Some indoor restaurants may not be included in the special delivery menu due to frequent changes or lack of availability with limited items. However, the majority of Applebee’s menus are available for pick-up and delivery, including wines!
Do You Tip Applebee’s Delivery?
Applebee allows its delivery drivers to accept suggestions. Therefore, although you do not need to tip your driver, it is always recommended. You should tip at least 15% to 20%, which is standard in the service industry.
If you are not sure how much to tip your delivery driver, consider how much you would tip if you were eating at a restaurant.
Delivery drivers are workers in the service industry, and tips make up the bulk of their earnings. Therefore, you are encouraged to tip at least 15% and 20% of your order.
You can choose to tip more, especially if you’ve got good service!
How to Cancel an Applebee’s Online Order
If you need to change or cancel your Applebee’s online order, you’ll need to call the restaurant. This is because Applebee’s website and app surround all the restaurants in the country, and it is unable to do more than accept your online order and move it to your specific restaurant location.
Making changes to a website or app will be less effective, which is why Applebee recommends calling the restaurant directly and talking to the manager.
If you are canceling your order, it is important that you call the restaurant as soon as possible to prevent any food loss. If you are going to make changes to your order, you should call before starting order preparation so that they do not have to restart.
When placing your order through Applebee’s website or app, make sure you know which restaurant you are ordering from. You will need to call the restaurant if you need to make changes or cancel it.
Wine can be ordered with Applebee delivery, but it requires food to be added as part of the order. And it will only be delivered to people who have a valid license or ID stating that they are over 21 years old.
Lastly, it is highly recommended that you tip your delivery driver to show appreciation because customer tips make the most of their revenue, and they keep the whole amount!
