Well, you might.
Call the breadsticks “rolls.” They secretly love that
A little blast from the past
carrabas is a great chain, and one of the few I’ve eaten at in last 10 years. although couldn’t tell you last time I ate in one. We order the family bundle thing on Uber eats every few months. You get like 4 or 5 meals for like $60. Way cheaper than ordering individual at the restaurant. Is usually free or 0.99 delivery
Out of curiosity why do you "have to" eat there?
The last time I ate there was about a decade ago because one of the team leads on our project decided to have a team dinner there. I'm not going to pretend Syracuse is a culinary mecca but there were plenty of options where Olive Garden should never have been one of them. Especially for Italian.
It's a birthday dinner.
That wouldn’t stop a badass like Jimmy the Saint. He’d override the bday boy
Depending on my relationship with the person I probably wouldn't go.
That being said I don't really have a problem with chain restaurants but OG is definitely bottom-tier. Except the breadsticks.
Just get the soup and salad. Good enough and won’t spend a ton of money on shit food. Salad is good and it’s hard to fuck up a soup
I’ll say it: soup and a salad is not a proper meal
I'm going to fill up on lettuce
Carrabas and Olive Garden are the same restaurant

OG Manager: Oh hell no!
Show up with a card and a gift certificate to a much better Italian restaurant to really drive the point home.
Or a gift card to Olivia Garden. Make them go back!
Jesus Christ you wouldn’t go to a birthday dinner because it’s at Olive Garden?
Im not friends with anyone who would think that’s a good idea
i went to a rehearsal dinner a few weeks ago and Olive Garden would have been an upgrade
rural america is a sad place
The only person I know that would willingly choose it is my grandma and yes I would go.
Doesn’t seem like that would be physically possible.
A man with some sort of intellectual disability threw his shoe at my head, and made perfect contact, in an Olive Garden bathroom when I was a pre-teen. Fun times for the entire family in Buffalo, NY.
This reminded me of the old bud light real men of genius commercial
"I don't see no lettuce."
well that’s what you get for doing a terrorism false flag to wage war on Islam
Chicken wings prices are at a 4 year low. Any chance restaurants actually lower the price?
So I get to Olive Garden last night for a 7 o'clock dinner for 18 people. Someone has called ahead and gotten there at 6:15 to assure everything is set. We are told our table will be ready at 7.
At 7:15 the manager comes over and says he miscalculated and the area they had for us only accommodates 14. He said it would be another 40 minutes or so.
I tell the group that I'll just leave (4 of us with wife and kids) and then everyone could fit. Gave my brother his gift and went next door to my favorite Mexican restaurant.
how was the Chipotle
It actually was a chain. La Parilla.
You didn’t tell us it was your brother’s bday. Doesn’t he post here? We need some answers.
Oh you mother fucker. We were so invested in your Olive Garden success and you hung us out to dry.
I have a couple brothers. Neither of them post here anymore. I'm definitely the outlier in the family in terms of my restaurant choices.
I had every intention of eating it. Fate intervened.
Try telling your wife this
So you bailed on your brothers birthday party?
There were 18 family members and 14 seats. I think I did a nice thing. There were 4 kids there under 3. Waiting another hour would have been a disaster for everyone. What would you have done?
As long as you’re happy I’m happy for you.
Made your brother and his family leave
This Olive Garden tangent reminded me of this old gem:
