Changing Times

"On a visit to Marietta, Ga., last fall, T.J. Palmer stopped into an Applebee's and ordered a bruschetta burger. 'I didn't like it at all,' she says.

"After having visited the restaurant chain regularly for years, Ms. Palmer says, she rarely goes anymore. 'It doesn't have anything that would make me want to come back.'

"Her assessment counts. Twenty-seven years ago, Ms. Palmer co-founded Applebee's."
