The most underrated menu item at 13 popular restaurant chains
The boneless wings at Applebee’s. The chicken and dumplins at Cracker Barrel. The Bloomin’ Onion at Outback Steakhouse.
There’s a reason these chain restaurant dishes are so iconic. Fans have been ordering them consistently over the years, and they’re standout offerings from the restaurants. But chains aren’t one-trick ponies, and there are likely plenty of hidden gems on the menu at your favorite restaurant.
OK, so you probably wouldn’t expect to get, say, perfectly slow-smoked barbecue at Chili’s, or a made-from-scratch tiramisu at Olive Garden. But there are still great menu items at your favorite chains that lie outside of the most popular orders. For example, Red Robin serves a tasty plate of battered fish and chips, and Steak ‘n Shake’s hot dog is just as good as its burgers.
