meanmutton: Millennium: They'd probably have better luck faking detractors. Easier to blend in.

I never really got all the hate, though. Sometimes, all you really want is some good Italian-American food, and Olive Garden fits the bill. I've got a good local place where I go when I want something more continental. But like the old jingle goes, "Sometimes you feel like a nut; sometimes you don't." There are times when I just want a smoked mozzerella fonduta and unlimited tasty breadsticks, and the OG fits the bill for that.

Here's my thing: Most of the time, I'm happy with "cheap and good enough".  I'm fine with Olive Garden (or Friday's or Chilli's or any of the other cheap chain places); I'm fine with Miller Lite; I'm fine with Little Penguin wine.  There are times when I want to spend a little more to get something good but the vast majority of the time, a $15 dinner at Olive Garden is fine.


I think a lot of the hate comes from the fact that it's more expensive to eat at olive Garden than at a legit place that uses real food and actually cooks. I would have no problem with olive garden if they were proceed similarly to McDonald's, but they aren't. They're firmly in the mid-tier price range, while offering what are essentially microwaved frozen dinners.

And what's worse is that people buy that shiat up. I think that's the main reason for the hate - the fact that going to an olive Garden means being surrounded for at least an hour by people stupid enough to actually believe they're getting good food at a good price.

Smackledorfer: Tourney3p0: Smackledorfer:  I bet a hotdog bun with garlic-salt and butter would still taste delicious.

This is why places like Olive Garden continue to exist.

Ooo, what a burn.  How dare I enjoy garlic bread. I should be ashamed of myself.


C'mon man. You only put garlic and butter on snails. What kind of loser puts it on bread? That's disgusting.

Dancin_In_Anson: Can someone PLEASE explain the allure of Reddit?

Remember the old anti drug films where they showed the difference between spider webs spun by spiders on various compounds as opposed to a sober spider?

Reddit reminds me of the spider on acid.


Holy shiat! I agree with DIA on something! I've tried reddit, and I just don't get what the attraction is at all.

/Though I thought in that experiment, the acid spider wove a beautiful web and the nicotine spider's web was all farked up. I could be wrong.
