Review: Olive Garden To Go

Lately our family has been eating out A LOT at restaurants, fast food places, take out...not that we didn't before, but it's been way worse now that we don't have a functioning kitchen.

That being said, we've gotten sick of everything that's close by us so we've ventured into chain restaurant central for take out options.  And we've found a real winner in Olive Garden.

What's great is you literally order what you would at the restaurant, and you get it to go!  That includes the unlimited soup or salad, and the breadsticks, with every meal!

First of all, let's start with the Olive Garden salad.  Yes, I know I don't typically touch vegetables but Olive Garden salad is an exception.  I think it's because it's an iceberg lettuce covered in that awesome Italian dressing with delicious croutons.  But you get a HUGE portion and if one dressing isn't enough to cover your salad, ask for extra at the counter when you pick up your Olive Garden to go.  And if you hate olives or peppers, you can ask for your salad WITHOUT them!

So pretty much I'd say I'm full after this point because the salad is seriously massive and I usually hate leftovers so I try to eat as much of this salad as I can.

Then each meal comes with two breadsticks, and because I'm getting old two breadsticks is enough if I'm having salad, breadsticks, and an entree.  And speaking of entrees, they are also HUGE.  I got the spaghetti with 3 meatballs and dang, that was enough for an extra meal.  Maybe it would have been two if I was that type of person who doesn't eat a lot.

Oh, and to finish off the meal you also get those awesome chocolate mints (Andes mints) that Olive Garden gives away.  So yum.

  • You have to get Olive Garden To Go!  So. Much. Food.  And you won't miss the fact that you aren't sitting at the restaurant eating unlimited salad and breadsticks.  I would much rather eat it at home in front of my TV watching the cable or Netflix.
