Around here you can get Readi Spaghetti if you really want to give yourself a case of the trotts. You would think spaghetti sauce would better survive the drive home but in my experience that is def not the case.

We got Fazoli's in Indianapolis when I was a kid in the late 80s to early 90s. We tried it once and never had it again. I can't remember if they dumped the sauce in with the spaghetti or if it was a separate container.

We did got a lot more use out of the plastic bucket. I think my parents threw it away after several years. The top of our refrigerator was a mountain of plastic containers.

There's an independently owned spaghetti bucket place up the street from my jobsite.

I don't know why but the thought of it nauseates me. It's across the street from a pretty decent diner though. I just always end up looking at it when I eat there for lunch

There was a Fazoli's near me when I lived in Denver but I never went. Now I sort of wish I'd tried the spaghetti bucket just to see what it's like. No Fazoli's anywhere in my entire state now, so I guess I'll just have to dream.

Most recently, the chain has been mixing up its menu, testing oven-baked subs in select markets and partnering with the Cheesecake Factory Bakery, which has more than tripled Fazoli's dessert sales in the last six months, Nation's Restaurant News reports.

Jesus, no matter how you design the drive thru exit, everybody's car will bottom out, even the raised trucks.

Sounds like a Jollibee menu item.

As other fast food chains go Italian, we must give credit where credit is due.

Wendy's have 1 limited time item, and BK have been doing chicken sandwiches like that for decades.

We buy spaghetti in 25-lb boxes. That's just the pasta. I canned a dozen pints of zucchini and tomato sauce and another dozen straight tomato sauce a few months ago. I also have garlic scape pesto in the freezer.

Food so appetizing the article doesn't have a single photo of it.

It could be because I have been trying to avoid carbs in general, but a bucket of buttery garlic noodles sounds amazing

/or a bucket of mac n' cheese

Their breadstick game is on point.

The Canton-area Fazoli's is still going strong.  Make of that what you will.

Spaghetti in a bucket, sure, but it's no pizza in a cup.

I had never heard of fazolis until this past year when I moved from a hood to b hood. B hood people are weird man. Saw it on the way to work to work one day,
"the fark is a fazolis?"
"Eh... It's like fast food Italian"
"so olive garden but cheaper and worse?"
"I mean, the kids like it so..."

" The kids" mentioned are the ones I've mentioned here before, would literally die if they ate a real tomato, and the world would cease to exist if they saw a mushroom in person

I thought this was going to be about Eminem's restaurant w/takeout window in Detroit.

It seems like everyone has a  "We had a Fazoli's but now it's closed" story, so I'll throw my hat into that ring.  I went one time and decided never again. This was years ago, so I can't recall why -- likely quality.

I didn't realize the "bucket of spaghetti" was a thing offered by smaller chains or mom and pop places all over.  We have a small chain here in Iowa called Zio Johno's that does that with spaghetti, ravioli, etc -- with the sauce in a separate bucket. Sauce and garlic bread are too sweet for my liking, but an order is perfectly serviceable for a quick multi-person meal w/out breaking the bank. (~25$ USD nets you a gallon of pasta, sauce, garlic bread and 'salad').

Spaghetti burrito but use angel hair pasta instead.

No, no. Put the pitchforks and torches down and hear me out.

You lay your burrito sized tortilla out. You smear your spaghetti sauce out like you would pizza sauce on a crust. Next, you lay out your angel hair in straight lines. As little or as much as you would like. Then, you put four to seven meatballs down the center (depending on ball size). Finally, you ladle spaghetti sauce down the center and roll the burrito as normal, remembering to tuck the ends securely.

Heft one and eat it. No mess and all tasty goodness.

Fazoli's is what I want to show Italians when they think Olive Garden is the worst we have to offer.
