ConFire responded to Applebee’s on Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Walnut Creek just before 7pm tonight after staff reported smelling smoke in the restaurant.

There was no fire, and no smoke, but there was a light odor of smoke coming from an electrical closet, according to ConFire.

Nobody was injured.

Thanks to Nancy for the picture!

Good thing nobody was injured.

Probably overheated the circuits from all the microwaves they use to “cook” the food.

I ate at Applebee’s twice.

First time, shame on them.

Second time, shame on me.

Everyone here, including me, thinks Applebee’s sucks, why are they still open? We really need a decent restaurant around here!

I did the same as Elwood. I thought they deserved a 2nd chance. They did not.

How is Applebees still in biz? Who goes there? My family hates it…and I don’t have any friends/family that go there. That is such a prime location for a GOOD restaurant especially with Whole Foods improving that area in the next couple years…

That is strange. Microwaves are not supposed to smoke.

As a former employee of this establishment, I can confirm what everyone else here is saying: Applebees Walnut Creek is staffed by some amazing people who struggle just like everyone else to make ends meet. They try desperatly to please a large group of ingrateful entitled gluttons who have nothing better to do than to complain about the state of their lives and do absolutely nothing to contribute. I dare anyone here to try and run a successful restaurant. You probably won’t, because you lnow you can’t. That’s why you complain, it’s the only power you have in this world. Try something constructive once in your life, maybe, just maybe of the Universe deems you worthy, you might actually have the chance to possibly come close to nearly succeeding. Thank you. Long live the strugglers. Long live my brothers and sisters in black button ups. You add flavor and character to this world.
