What are the advertised sizes of those glasses? 16 and 20 oz?
Applebee's, a place I avoid.
Can't find that on the menu.
Size may be right if filled all the way.That tall one wasn't filled to the rim (the widest part). Have not been there in a while, so can't say how they actually fill them. Deceptive shaped glasses are nothing new though.
I believe Chillies uses the same tall glass, I always get the small mug, 2 oz. Is not worth another buck in my book
Same. Regardless of the place. I usually figure the 'big beer' option is a scam.
It's easy enough to do the math to see which one is more cost effective - assuming both glass volumes are as advertised. I'd say the difference in the two glass in the video is easily 4 oz. As noted, the tall one isn't filled all the way to start with.
But as long as it tastes better in the tall glass ...
Yet another video. 20 oz glass.
I question the volume of the "pint glass" in the first video. It's probably around 12-ish.
Funny how your math skills improve as you drink
Agreed. The first video isn't a true test. You don't know for sure how big the regular glass is. The second and third video are specific amounts.
I try not to order any drinks in restaurants, soda nor beer, etc. The drinks are big money makers and I prefer to get my fluids at home.
women get better looking too!
Back in the 80's my uncle worked briefly at a bar. He brought home, and I still have a few 11 oz "cheater" mugs. There used to be a place around here that "nickel beer" on Wednesdays. The mugs they used were quite a joke. The recess on the bottom was almost the same size as the top portion where the drink went. IIRC a friend and I measured it to be 5.5 oz.
goes back to the math skills, you look at her assets, see a 2 a 2 and 3 and you think shes a 10
...and the last three times I was at applebees, I ordered the rib tips. same thing every time- totally inedible nothing but fat and tiny bone chips. how in hell are they selling those? haven't been there in years
Why would you order the same thing 2 more times if it sucked the first time? lol Their burgers and most appetizers are actually pretty good.
I ordered them once and wasn't impressed myself. Otherwise I like their food.
I throw them a $20 and climb under the tap
to see if there was a bad batch or if the quality improved. sometimes it does with them it did not
Sports stadiums have been busted doing this same thing also
