I travel from city to city and I found the service and food exceptional!!! I truly love this place and will always come here when I am in town. I made sure to tip well because the waitress earned it.

I have been waiting for years to come to this place. Finally after i get back from Iraq i get to test this place out. Nothing like i expected! I will never go back! Not worth it especially if there are better places like Spagetti Warehouse and Johnny Corino's.
Not too bad

Not the best, but it's fine for eating once in a while. Service is slow
Get off I-35

Let me just tell you that you are going to the WRONG Olive Garden. I go to the Olive Garden on 281 and bitters, and the service, food, and atomosphere is outstanding. Though the wait is ONLY 15-20 minutes, they have outstanding servers (especially Tiffany) and their breadsticks and salad are far from generic and terrible. The prices went up but its worth it for the amount of food you do get.
Just Awful and Going Downhill from There

I agree with the posting on 1/8/02. Even the Breadsticks aren't what they used to be, they may as well be serving some generic white bread. The salad is terrible now also. Those two things used to be worth going to Olive Garden for, but no more! Have all the Olive Gardens gone downhill, or just the one on I-35? I don't want to go to any others and find out! It isn't cheap here, and it isn't fast, they give off the aura of ""fine dining"" when you enter, but what you get doesn't even come close. Stale, old, tired...that about sums it up!
