The introduction of the Honey BBQ Baby Backs solidifies Applebee’s as a leader in providing a variety of great-tasting food choices for guests, said Kurt Hankins, Applebee’s senior vice president of Menu Development and Innovation. And it gives barbecue lovers even more to love at Applebee’s: The restaurant already offers several barbecue items on its menu, including its signature Riblets, Boneless Honey BBQ Wings, BBQ Brisket Cheddar Melt and Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwich.
