Time to start retraining your stomach: Applebee's All You Can Eat Boneless Wings are finally back. And not only that, the restaurant chain is adding two new items to strain your waistline: All You Can Eat Riblets, and All You Can Eat Crunchy Shrimp.
“We know America loves our All You Can Eat Boneless Wings – so what better way to kick-start the year by bringing them back PLUS endless Riblets and Double Crunch Shrimp?” said Applebee’s Chief Marketing Officer, Joel Yashinsky, via press release. “Whether mixing and matching or staying the course with your favorite savory protein, there’s no going wrong!”
All three items are currently available at Applebee's nationwide. For only $14.99 (up from the previous price of $12.99), you too can chow down on non-stop food, including unlimited french fries.
However, there are a few catches to the deal. First, this is for dine-in only, which makes sense because I have no idea how you would have you would order unlimited wings on the Applebee's App(lebee's). Second, there's technically no sharing: it's $14.99 per person, so it's not like you can order unlimited wings for the table. Similarly, at least according to the viral TikTok trend last year when this offer was in play, you have to finish a plate of wings (or riblets, or crunchy shrimp) before you order a new one. They're not just going to keep bringing you plates of food until you get them all packed to-go and have food for the next three months. Sorry.
That said, it's still plenty of food. When the boneless wings were brought back last year, many folks stepped up to the challenge. One group famously clocked 30 plates of wings in one sitting, albeit over five people, so about six plates of approximately five wings each. That's a lot of boneless wings!
Here's the official description of the delectable menu items, per Applebee's:
- All You Can Eat Boneless Wings: Crispy breaded pieces of tender boneless chicken tossed in your choice of one of six sauces: Classic Buffalo, Honey BBQ, Sweet Asian Chile, Garlic Parmesan, Extra Hot Buffalo, and Honey Pepper. Served with signature coleslaw, endless classic fries, and Bleu cheese or house-made buttermilk ranch dressing.
- All You Can Eat Riblets: Expertly cut from the most tender pork for delicious bone-in flavor, Applebee’s riblets are slow cooked and come dripping in either Honey BBQ or sweet Asian Chile sauce. Served with signature coleslaw and endless classic fries.
- All You Can Eat Double Crunch Shrimp: Crispy battered Double Crunch Shrimp are fried golden brown. Served with cocktail sauce, signature coleslaw and endless classic fries.
When does Applebee's All You Can Eat end? When does Applebee's All You Can Eat Wings end?
The next logical question is, how much time do you have to take advantage of this deal? Applebee's lists the trio of dishes as available for a "limited time" but doesn't provide an actual end date.
That said, we can look at the previous flight for the Applebee's All You Can Eat Wings, and make some logical assumptions. They were last introduced on August 7, 2023, and the Applebee's All You Can Eat Wings ended on September 29, 2023.
This year, the All You Can Eat was introduced on January 8, 2024. Given a similar schedule, we'd expect Applebee's All You Can Eat will end on or around February 29, 2024. Guilty Eats has reached out to Applebee's for comment, and will update this piece when and if we hear back.
In the meantime: happy eating, and don't forget to pace yourself.
