What the f*ck are you talking about? That's not Italian food, that's complete...
Oh wait... Canada. Yeah, sorry, carry on.
Forgive them, TGD, for they know not what they eat.
I know what I eat, and I agree, the Olive Garden sucks. I won't go back. My wife is an excellent cook and her Italian dishes put Olive Garden to shame, and she is not Italian.
The problem with the chains is all the meals are in single serving bags and they boil them to heat them and then serve you. Nothing is made in the restaurant anymore except maybe the salad. All the meals are prepackaged in a plant in Somalia and then shipped to the chain for distribution. It's CRAP food.
I meant to specifically state Olive Garden is horrid here. Excepting the soup salad and bread sticks.
Mr. Frog's was ok. They did not have the cool new plastic frog sign when it was here in the'90s.
