New Artisan Grilled Chicken Ciabatta: One More Reason to Try All 231 Lunch Combos, Starting at $6.99
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Feb. 17, 2014 - In the world of restaurant menus, there are fan favorites, and then there are epic obsessions. These legends inspire Guest cravings and even spark imitations. After nearly a decade of stirring the hearts and minds of Guests, Applebee's has selected the Quesadilla Burger to lead its new Legends lineup: dishes unique to America's favorite neighborhood grill and bar.
The story of how the ingenious combination of a juicy burger, sandwiched between quesadillas, came to be is a closely held secret – a mystery the world may never solve. But the mystique of this southwest delight is not the only reason this Freshburger is hard to resist. The juicy burger, fresh pico de gallo, Mexi-ranch sauce and shredded lettuce, enveloped in a flavorful jack and cheddar quesadilla is a combination of flavors worthy of legendary status.
"The Quesadilla Burger has been a staple on the Applebee's menu for nearly 10 years. Combining an American classic with a Mexican influence keeps Applebee's fans coming back time and time again," said Peter Czizek, Applebee's Vice President of Culinary and Menu Strategy. "Latin flavors lend a unique freshness to food. Our ethnically-inspired dishes are popular, and the Quesadilla Burger is, and always has been, one of our best-selling burgers."
Applebee's Guests will also find Latin and Mexican influences in two new Fresh Flavors of the Southwest dishes, available for a limited time on Applebee's famed 2 for $20* menu: the Citrus Lime Sirloin and Chicken & Shrimp Tequila Tango.
The new Artisan Grilled Chicken Ciabatta sandwich – tender grilled chicken and a house-made artichoke spread, topped off with Swiss cheese, crisp Applewood smoked bacon, tomatoes and smoky mayo, all on a delicious Ciabatta bun – is one more reason to check out Applebee's lineup of more than 200 Lunch Combos, starting at $6.99*.
