Come on, does this need to be in the 'Foodie' blog? News of the opening of another chain food mill, and a particularly horrd one at that, is not of interest to 'foodies'.

What's next, announcements when another McDonalds opens?

Well, I'm gonna have to agree with Snarky... The announcements regarding mega-food-churners really ought not be topic on this blog....

Man, the critics are out in full force.....no complaints here about this blog. The only thing I wish is that there were more postings!

Ok, so some people complain when we exclude chains. Others complain when we include them. Can't win every battle :)

I love Olive Garden!! It isn't just the authentic Italian food at a great price, it's the good times and hospitaliano!!! You snobs are in need of a good breadstick!

"Mario" must be an employee or a stock owner. Authentic Italian food? Give us a break. It's about as authentic as Chef Boyardee Spaghetti-O's.....

I am with Snarky on this one, this has no business here. Olive Garden is what is wrong with food in America, eating with a shovel. These are the people who teamed with Coke for their "No H2O" promotion. They pound their service people to sell sell sell. Reminds me of he Monte Python "one thin mint" explosion. Good foodies should avoid chains like the plague. Eat local.

I agree with you on regular Chef BoyRDee...but the kind with meatballs are YUMMY!

Get down off your high horse...they post food news of all sorts, one post about the Olive Garden isn't going to kill ya.

Mario, I agree, one Olive Garden post is not going to kill me, most likely is going to kill some other folks though.
