I've had servers ask me that before in other Applebee's-tier restaurants. So, did you go for pink or no pink?
>>
>>8497502
no pink
>>
>>8497506
Good choice. You my have really dodged a bullet
>>
It's common here in Maryland, I think it's to skirt around some beaurocratic "you can't let people order burgers medium-rare" shit.
>>
It's also the way they do it here (Colorado)
>>
I went to applebees about 8 years ago and I remember the waitstaff asking questions that seemed strangely worded or unnecessary, as if they were talking to a child. I assumed it was because they have a lot of poor people as customers who don't know how restaurants work.
>>
a lot of darker skinned people don't realize that "well done" has a very specific culinary definition and would get extremely upset when their meat came out dry and tough. so restaurants that have a large dark-skinned clientele have started using "pink or no pink" to avoid confusion and anger.

>darker skinned people
People who are tanned? Native Americans? Micronesians?

>Applebees
I bet the waitress is just tired of retards not knowing how to order a well-done burger so she simplifies it by asking 'pink or no pink.'

Not implying that you look like an idiot to the waitress or anything, OP.
>>
Applebee's in PA let you choose between medium-well and well-done.

Your selection doesn't change how the burger is cooked.
>>
Applebee's is shit. The girlfriend and I went there about a month or so ago. I hadn't been in years and I remembered why. Everything sucked. Except for the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale on draft. If I'm gonna go to a chain, it's gonna be Chili's.
>>
Red Robin does this. I assumed it was because there's people who don't know what "well done" means, akin to what
>>8498650
has said
>>
>Work in restaurant as waiter
>Walk up to table and ask if theyre ready to order
>Man asks for steak
>Ask him how he woulf like it cooked
>Man.exe has stopped responding
>Finally says "I want it juicy, tender, and well done"
>Bring steak out to him
>he calls me over
>says steak is brown all the way through, not juicy at all
>Seppuku him with a steak knife for being an disgrace to steak eaters everywhere
>Blood everywhere, people screaming in horror
>Use his blood and fat to marinade a steak
>Cook it medium rare like an respectable human being
10/10 would work at Longhorn Steakhouse again

I always order pink

You gotta tale risks sometimes
>>
The restaurant I work at only does pink or no pink on burgers. It's mainly to streamline the process- on a $15k night, we don't have time to be any more specific.
