Transcription

  • - 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 mythicalsociety.com.
  • - 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.
