Lunch at Olive Garden is now faster, cheaper, and tastier than I remember. When I think about it, I have been to the ol’ OG more times in the last six months than I have in the last six years.
Things like a 5.99 Meatball Sammich with parmesan fries is one reason for my frequent visits. You get a pretty hefty double dose of meatballs on a half-cut loaf of bread. The “parm” fries are pretty generic; but thanks for trying.
The sammich itself is very filling. It’s got great textures and flavors. Yeah, I said it. I liked the dish at OLIVE GARDEN. I know it’s “cool” to rip on OG, and I have done my share, but this was pretty good. I have to be honest. I didn’t …however…pay attention to the menu and noticed that my sammich had a cheese blend on top that included ricotta cheese. Not of a fan of ricotta as a garnish on a meatball sammich. Other than that – this is a solid lunch for a price that beats several drive-thru combo meals these days….oh and I get salad and breadsticks!!! wooo!
