    Okay, this is going to sound strange.. but...

    I have a slight obsession with the "Nachos Nuevo" at Applebee's. I go there JUST to get those nachos with the yummy, drippy cheese sauce, the seasoned beef, etc.

    Today I went with my family and asked for the nachos. They brought me a plate of funny-looking stuff. I asked what happened to the nachos and they replaced it with chili and melted cheese instead of the sauce!!! AHHHHHHHHH I didn't even want it.

    I know it sounds lame, but I get excited about the little things and now I don't have my nachos anymore, lol.

    Hi!

    I understand your frustration!!!!

    Chili's took off my FAVE salad...grilled chicken Caribbean....and that's the ONLY reason I ever went there! Everyone I knew loved that salad. If it was so popular, I wonder why they took it off the menu?

    Grrrr...........:p

    It doesn't sound strange, because I felt the same way when Olive Garden did away with their stuffed chicken.

    I had pretty much the same experience at Chili's. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich as I have quite often, and they made it differently. Instead of coating the whole entire chicken breast in the sauce, they squirted a bit of the sauce on top. I asked the waiter about it and he tried telling me that's how they've always made it. Not so because I had ordered it plenty times to know. :) I asked him to take it back and do it the way I wanted. Ha ha!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who has felt this way!

    Mine was bertuccis - I don't even remember what the one dish was anymore, and I used to love the bruschetta app. Both are gone... so sad.

    Mine was Wahalla pasat at the Outback. It's not on the menu anymore, but every place I've asked will still make it for me. I always feel panicky when I ask though, because I'm sure they'll say 'no' one of these days.

    TGI Friday's used to make a stuffed baked potato that had brocoli, cauliflour, carrots and marinara sauce (this was before i developed the tomato allergy...LONG before). Anyway, the took it off the menu in 1997 and I still haven't forgiven them.

    I LOVE Applebees nachos. I ordered it two weeks ago and it was fine so maybe they just changed it or maybe its just that Applebees?? I would be LIVID!!!

    A lot of times, if you ask for it and it has been taken off the menu, they will still make it for you.

    You may have to be really nice...;)

    I work at Outback, and I don't mind at all when someone orders it! Neither do the other servers! We still have a button in the computers for it and everything. So don't worry about ordering it! No one minds. :) Also, I don't think it's going away any time soon. All of the ingredients are used in other dishes (the veggies, pasta, and chicken), so it'll be there for awhile!

    Every time we go to Pizza Hut, dh says "remember when they used to have Triple Decker pizza?" Me-"yes dear, that was 1997, and they still don't have it. Now what do you want?" He just loved that pizza...it was good. I tried to make it at home, but it wasn't thin enough...

    That's a real bummer! I hate when things like that happen.
