Applebees Vs. Chili’s Taste Test | FOOD FEUDS

– Today, Applebee’s and
Chili’s go rib to rib. – Let’s talk about that. (laid back groove) – Good Mythical Morning! – We covered two classic
Merle Haggard songs an pressed them on vinyl. – Yeah we did. – This is it. This rare collectible is totally exclusive to third degree members
of the Mythical Society, so sign up by September
30th to get this thing, – What? only at – Okay, yes. Now, in June we saw Outback
Steakhouse take Texas Roadhouse down to the land down under,
proving without a doubt, to us, that Outback was
the uncontested best, in our opinion, between
the two rival restaurants. – But here’s the thing,
Outback and Roadhouse aren’t the only two chains
throwin’ shade at each other. Which brings us to
Applebee’s versus Chili’s. – Yes, okay, so a couple years back, Twitter went wild after one user’s salad from the ‘Bee’s didn’t quite
live up to expectations. Hayes tweeted, “So I ordered
the Southwestern Steak Salad at Applebee’s tonight and
this was the outcome.” – Good gosh. – “I understand that
food isn’t always going to look like pictures, but dot dot dot.” – You know you havin’ a bad night when your salad catfishes you. – Oh. (laughing) – Needless to say, Chili’s die-hard fans were quick to respond,
like Kingston Baldie. “Playa mistake number one. You went to Applebee’s
instead of Chili’s, LOL.” – Ooh. Okay, then Chili’s social team officially threw down the gauntlet by tweeting this. “We are humans, we all make
mistakes once in a while. But we’re right here, just waiting to make this wrong a right!” – Chili’s Grill and Bar swoopin’
in with the weak retort! But listen, the stage
has clearly been set, and this beef must be squashed. – Yes, Applebee’s, Chili’s, two iconic titans in the
pantheon of chain restaurants. But which titan will remain
after a head-to-head battle for ultimate casual dining supremacy? It’s time for Food Feuds,
Applebee’s versus Chili’s. – Whoa, okay, we’re gonna
taste signature dishes from each restaurant, head-to-head, and we are going to rate
them each on a scale of one to 10. In the end, the winner will be crowned, the absolute, uncontested,
best casual dining restaurant of all time, according to us. And will win a chance to
sponsor a GMM episode. – Hey, who doesn’t want that? (driving rock music) – We’re gonna start with an appetizer, because that’s menu rules, and I really like to follow the rules. – Hi, welcome to the neighborhood. – Hi, Annie. – I’m Annie Applebee’s. – I see that. – And we have some delicious
chicken wonton tacos for you. – Okay, you don’t seem too confident. – I have some debilitating student loans. – Okay, working on her tip. – Thank you, Annie. – All right, and that would be versus? – Hey, what’s up Chili’s heads? It’s your boy, Chili’s Chaz and I’m here to tell you
that I had my tuition paid for by my parents, so. These are southwestern egg
rolls, and they’re delicious, and they’re way better than
whatever that cardboard is. – I have had these. – I have had those, and
remembered liking them. – Yeah, I’ve never had these. – Now, okay. – [Link] Some limes here. – These are a little bit
soggy and we’ve been told by our culinary expert,
Mythical Chef Josh, that that is what happens
when these are to go, but this wouldn’t be the case
if it was at the restaurant. So we’re not gonna hold the
sogginess against it, okay? – It’s not gonna be easy to do. – [Rhett] Just pretend that it’s crispy. Oh, if that was crispy,
that’d be really good. – [Link] Yeah. The taste is so great. I can almost pretend it was crispy. – Man, if it was crispy, it
would have a crunch to it. – [Link] Now, this southwest,
this is like, legend. But then you open it, and
you’re like, oh, good god, that looks ugly. – That looks great to me. It’s got black bean in there, cheese. – You do your little. – [Rhett] Onions, you
gotta do your dip and dip. – So, again, we’re rating both these on a scale of one to 10, assuming full crispiness. – I’m sorry I gotta double
dip, that sauce is good. – [Link] This is pretty
difficult, because that’s– – Both of them are good. I’m gonna add an additional two points in my head for crispiness. I think I would give these a
six, but I’m adding two points to make it an eight. – Okay, I’m gonna give that a seven. I’m gonna give this an
eight, barely edging it out. – I am giving that, that’s
almost a perfect appetizer, in my book. – Wow. – I’m giving it a nine. – Okay. (driving music) – Since this Food Feud all began over a sad Applebee’s salad, you know we had to take it there. Bring out the rabbit food. – Yeah, Chili’s Chaz up in the house. This is the Santa Fe chicken salad. It’s pretty sick. You’re going to love it. – [Link] We love a salad
that is described as sick. – Annie, bring it on in. – So this is not the salad. – Oh, the steak doesn’t exists anymore. – [Annie] Right, this is our, um, grilled chicken tender salad. – Okay, you sound like you
are on the verge of tears. You know what, just take
a, just take breath. – Yeah, yeah, yeah. – I am gonna drink lemon
water through a straw. – Oh, wow, okay, I am
just putting this … – Oh, Annie … – Just across the top. – I hope she’s gonna be okay. – I think it all comes down to our tip. All right, so I’m goin in. – I didn’t fully dress it. You don’t want a half dressed salad. – [Link] I am tryin to get
everything except tomatoes. – Never seen a man so
technically approach a salad. – You only get one bite of this thing. Dink it. – Well. – Stink it. – [Rhett] Who made up that rule? – That is a zesty dressing. It tastes like chicken
tender dipping sauce. – Okay, so like a honey mustard … – Bingo. – With something else in it. – I didn’t know hey used
that on salads anymore. – Anymore? Like since when? The honey mustard crisis? – Since the tender dip took over. That is a bit much for me. – It’s not enough for me. – [Link] Enough what? You like the … – [Rhett] I like pizzazz. – [Link] You’d like more pizzazz? – Yeah, I want to know what I am eating. – Now there is no … – I want it to bite back a little it. – So that one’s got the hard boiled egg but this one’s got the avocado. – Now, right of the
bat, the flavor profile of this salad is much
better for me personally, but I don’t want that to be
the only determining factor because some people may like this. You know, this is very middle of the road. It’s a safe salad. I don’t like my salad safe. I like my salad sassy. – Um, I also prefer this one. It’s got a little spice. I am big into the avocado, but it’s still just
kind of a crappy salad. I am gonna give this one a six. – Um, yeah, I am somewhere
between a five and a six because their salads
could be so much better. I will go with a six though because I do like the spice. – I am gonna give this a four. It’s just honey mustard has moved on. It’s just for tenders. – I don’t wanna judge it based
on the choice of dressing because you could get
another type of dressing. – I have already given my scores. – Um, so I am gonna just
say that somebody out there would want these ingredients in a salad but judging these ingredients
on their own merits, I can’t give it more than a three. I’m sorry. – Wow, and that really didn’t help. (driving rock music) – Definitely looking forward
to this head to head, some finger-lickin’,
barbecue sauce drippin’ ribs. Knock it down, Annie,
bring some confidence, bring some zest to it. – This is our famous double glazed, shoot, double glazed ribs. – [Link] You’re doin’ great. – Chug, chug, chug,
chug, chug, chug, chug, Chili’s Cha (record scratching noise) Chaz and these are ribs. They need no introduction, you already know. – Wow, where do you want to start? Chili’s is known for their ribs. So I feel like we should
start with Applebee’s. – [Link] No back when my
mom and I used to visit the Applebee’s, we would
have many mom son dates, we would always go with the riblet basket. – They still do that? – I don’t know. – That’s not even real. – [Link] You don’t have
to eat the whole rib. – Yeah I do. Uh, that’s not great. That’s not good. – I like the sauce. – I do not like the sauce. – [Link] You don’t? – The sauce has a like
a mass produced quality, like when we taste the barbecue sauces and there was, you know,
that the big brands had that kind of almost plasticy taste. – [Link] Not much sauce. – [Rhett] There is very
little sauce on these. – [Link] On the Chili’s rib. – The meat falls of the
one a little bit more – It choked ya, choked ya
little with more efficacy. – But this is also not a good rib. – I actually thought there was more of a sauce sensation
than there actually is. – I mean on the scale of ribs and what you can experience
in the world of ribs, neither of these ribs
is doing a lot of damage to the rib scale, know what I mean? – Yeah, um, hmm, okay,do
you have your scores? – Yeah. – I actually thought that we were going to be wowed by these ribs, so I am really disappointed. – And I am really hungry – With both plates. – I am so easy to impress right now. I didn’t eat breakfast – What do you give Applebee’s? – Three. – I like the sauce better than you, I am givin’ it a five. – Oh. – I think that these ribs are just better but only slightly actually, so I am gonna give it a six. – I give it a four because I agree. They are meatier and I
like the meat a little bit better and the lack of sauce because the sauce is bad makes it better. – I feel like we should apologize. – To who? (driving rock music) – I love being an adult man, and I love doing adult things, but every now and again, I still like to order
some chicken tenders. – Yeah, these are Chili’s
original chicken crispers. They are one hundred percent
all natural white meat which is also funnily enough the name of my ska band in high school. (laugh) – Annie, rescue us. – Hi, these are our chicken tenders, they are so good you’ll forget about how over due your credit card bill is to American Eagle. Actually, can I have some of that? – No, Annie – Yeah, give her one. – Okay, take a tender and leave. – Yeah, you can take one. – You know what, take one of these – Uh ah. – They look so different. – [Rhett] Yeah, these look, uh,
crunchy differently breaded. – [Link] It looks like fried fish to me, something about – Yeah, yeah, welcome
to Long John Silver’s (laughter) – This looks like something – You’re welcome. – You would warm up in
a, from the freezer. There is not a lot of meat in there. And the meat that is
in there is not great. – It’s not as good as
like a fast food tender. – Right. – This is so weird – Like a tender from Carl’s Jr. would be way, way, way better than that. – I think, if my mom made tenders at home, which she has done. They look kinda like this. – A little homemade feel. It is almost like a tempura batter. – It’s like a McDonald’s
McNugget but elongated. – Way more meat. Look at that, look at
that meat cross-section, and I know, you just thought, oh you just took one cross-section. No, look, every time you break
open an Applebee’s tender, you’re gonna get, look, barely any meat. – Yeah, I, we’re definitely in agreement. The Chili’s tender is better. – That’s a good tender. I can only imagine what
it would taste like if I could dip it in something. – Can’t do it. We already used it on the salad. – I am gonna give that – Seven! – I was gonna say seven – I know. What about that? – Three. – Three. (laughter) (driving rock music) – Even if you don’t have room for dessert you order it just as an excuse to continue to enjoy the amazing Chili’s
and Applebee’s decor. – Oh, hell yeah. – So much to stare at. – Hey. – Hey. – All right, this is our
triple chocolate meltdown – You have been doin’ great, Annie. – Thanks, as a woman on the verge of a triple chocolate meltdown, I would really like to know
I can pay my rent this month. That being said, here is your bill – Is the tip built in? – No. – Okay, okay, boy it’s
really stressing me out. – The name is Chili Chaz
and I am here to say Applebee Annie is bumming me out today. So this is the molten chocolate cake. – [Link] It looks like
a volcano versus that which looks like ice cream
with, you know, cake beside it. – This looks like the cake
that you make with a play set. – You have seen my work. – This is like an Easy Bake, maybe they used an Easy
Bake Oven to cut on costs. – [Link] Now, it’s suppose to
be real molten in the middle. – Oh, yeah, it’s very melty in there. – How difficult is this? Dink it. – Hm, I thought it was gonna be better. It started to get good and then it got weird. – You are exactly right. – [Rhett] Good cake. There is weird thing happening. – I think there is blood in it. – You might be right. – Like there’s some coins in there. – There’s definitely blood in it. – There’s some (laughs) There’s some coins in. – We have solved the mystery. – All right, this has caramel and it has – Actually it’s just tears. – Okay. – Thanks, Annie. – [Link] She came back
in to make us sad again. – [Rhett] It’s bursting. – Caramel. Their chocolate shell. – Is there, I am gonna desecrate this, because I wanna see what’s in the middle. Oh, look, Link, look at that. Oh, look there’s even
softer goodness in there. – This is not bad. – [Rhett] I like that. – This is definitely better. – I wan to give it a second chance, their so molten, look at that. – I don’t need to give it a second chance. – Still blood. – I am gonna give that a three. It’s not great. – I think it’s better than that, especially goin’ into the second bite knowin’ there was going to be a little bit of a bloody taste. (laughter) I am gonna give it a five now. – All right, but over here. This is pretty magical the way
that it all comes together. I am gonna give this a six. Big jump up for me. – I am gonna go up to, I am gonna go up to a seven for that. That’s a good, solid dessert. A mountain of goodness. – So across all these rounds, Chili’s beat Applebee’s every single time. Applebee’s comes in with
an over all score of 44 and coming in with 66 points, we have Chili’s. – Ah, Chili’s, you have won a sponsorship for Good Mythical Morning episode. So slide into our DM’s. – Thank you liking and
commenting and subscribing. – Sorry, Annie, um, we are gonna to give you an 80 percent tip though. So you’ll feel good about yourself. – That will help with my fibromyalgia. Thank you so much. – You know what time it is. – [Boy] Hi, I am Caden from New Castle, England. (piano music) And it’s time to spin
the Wheel of Mythicality. – That is the future, guys. I don’t know what happened. – Click the top link to watch us taste and compare Applebee’s
and Chili’s kids meals in Good Mythical More. – And to find out where

  4. Chili’s has some of the best tacos I’ve ever had

  5. You can tell they didn’t like Applebee’s before even eating it 😂😂

  6. I agree with everything except the dessert.

  7. Was waiting for Chili's Chaz to come in and say "H I w E L c O m e t O C h I L i 's"

  8. I usually get chili’s bbq ribs and they are usually like coateD in bbq sauce

  9. Did I just watch 15 minutes of someone telling me that Chilli's is better than Applebeess? Next video, Oxygen vs Mustard Gas.1 Round. All or literally nothing.

  10. Roadhouse is better!

  11. WelCOme tò ChILi's

  12. You guys should do Wendy’s vs Popeyes

  13. pls. do an All Filipino Food Taste test, from main dishes to desserts, to snacks and others. pls.

  14. Honey chipotle Chile’s ribs

  15. The only thing I like from Applesbees is the artesian salad 🤷🏼‍♀️

  16. We must get Gordon ramsay. (Not my idea just spreading the word and you should to)

  17. Where’s the honey chipotle sauce for the chicken tenders ?

  18. Chilis is way better

  19. Fortnite: 14:25 | Link: THAT IS THE FUTURE GUYS

  20. They judged Applebee’s too hard

  21. the Fortnite clip was actually super awesome lol

  22. would have been cool if tgi fridays was in the mix.

  23. “Knock it down, Annie! Bring some confidence! Bring some zest to it!”

    anguished groan

  24. This shoulda been a blind taste test.


  26. 🌶's is gross

  27. It’s pretty universal that chili’s is better than applebees

  28. I don't know anyone that goes to Applebee's for the ribs or salads, let's be honest. The four cheese mac with honey pepper chicken is freaking delicious. Also, the chicken fajita rollup is really good, and the fish and chips is decent.

  29. Ruby Tuesday’s Vs TGI Friday’s next

  30. Hi welcome to Chili's

  31. APPLEBEES!!! Is better.
    CHILIS!!! Is better.

    Me quietly eating steak fries at red robin

  32. Man we just have opposite taste buds cause outback steakhouse is definitely not that good and I prefer Applebee's. Wonton Tacos are a++++ 😭

  33. But have you had hickory bourbon bbq ribs from Ruby Tuesdays?

  34. Neither of these dumps has anything on TGI Friday’s. 💪🏽

  35. Rhett’s shirt looks like he was working on the old car.

  36. Does anyone not watch gmm in the morning, but at night?

  37. No one likes BJ’s here??? I think they have better desserts than those two. Or maybe I just like cookies

  38. Before I even get through this. Chillis is winning no doubt.

  39. I think I love Annie lol.

  40. I don’t know what either of these restaurants are.

  41. this episode was just rhett N link hating on applebee’s … feels bad.

  42. “You don’t have to eat the whole rib!”

    “Yes I do”

  43. I want to see a food fears episode one day that pits link against tomatoes

  44. 5:30 so I take it the hypnosis didn’t work…

  45. Neither of these places can make good ribs when you compare to TONY ROMA'S DUDE THOSE GUYS GOT THE RIB GAME ON LOCKDOWN

  46. I’ve never had Applebee’s or chilis.
    Is that weird?

  47. the best thing at applebee's is the Steak and yall didn't even try it. Also if it had been just all appetizers vs all appetizers, Applebees would sweep it, the southwest eggrolls are all Chili's has going for it on that front

  48. "That will help with my fibromyalgia" LMAOOO Annie had me dyin

  49. where can I get rhetts shirt from this episode?

  50. I prefer Applebee’s to chili’s any day of the week I cannot believe they disagree

  52. Leviticus

    7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

    8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.


    15 For,
    behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a
    whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of

    16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

    17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

  53. Who else came in watching this, and KNOWING Chili's would clean house?

    Applebee's had it's day in the sun w/ Talladega Nights and been declining ever since.

  54. Who eats a breadstick like that?!?!?!?!

  55. I'm confused…what did the wheel stop on?

  56. The best part of theese videos, im sorry, is the waiters

  57. It all comes down to who is working the kitchen for both of these as well….

  58. Omg. When it came down to the ribs. I was literally Rhett when I first had Applebee’s ribs

  59. Good mythical morning has just turned into a food show. Kinda makes me sad.

  60. Hmm is jordan around still? That guy is one of the funniest crew member’s from last season.

  61. I swear Link said… "Dink it. Stink it."

  62. I haven't watched the video yet, but I will be pissed if Applebees wins.

  63. im a line cook at applebees and this is pretty accurate

  64. This 100% should have been a blind-taste-test!!

  82. 7:37 best part of the show

  83. Chili's should go up against TGI Fridays

  84. Fortnite!

  85. Hi Welcome to Chili’s

  86. But applebees has 1$ drinks…

  87. Totally unbiased

  88. Really bummed cuz no one said "hi, welcome to chili's"
