Default Olive Garden Coming to Aiken

Olive Garden is coming to Aiken it's going to be behind
Cracker Barrel.
I was wondering why they put such an expensive road there for just
a Cracker Barrel, well, we are getting Olive Garden too.
I'm happy everytime they open something new, because I don't
have to drive to Augusta just to go to a favorite food place.
I wouldn't drive all the way to Augusta just to go to Olive Garden,
but it's nice we are getting one.
Oh, by the way, they remolded Roma, in the same mall as
FreshMarket, I always liked it there, glad he is back.

I have always considered Olive Garden as faux-Italian. Was invited to a anniversary party at one recently. I smiled. Said OK. Well to my surprise. The meal I ordered (Spicy Shrimp Vesuvio) was quite good and a large portion. We ordered a bottled of the house red wine. It was a good buy.

I will go back.

Olive Garden isn't bad food usually, just more American than anything else.

Oilve Garden is okay. Aside from the never ending pasta bowl, I do not see much Olive Garden offers.

For Italian, there is Della Ventura. I almost went there years ago only to find they were closed on a Monday.

Olive Garden is a joke. You should try REAL Italian food sometime.

I agree. To think they say they send their chefs to train in Italy... but I really wonder about that.
Their food is not that bad, though. Just not really, typically Italian!
