After moving back to Harlingen eight years ago, I tried Olive Garden with my wife two or three ties and it was awful. After boycotting the place more recently for a year or two, we I decided to try OG again. What a pleasant surprise! The décor is so much better. They finally have a real bar and the... read more

I went to dinner there with my husband and wasn't impressed. The salad bowl (which they're known for) consisted only of light green iceberg lettuce, 1 tomato and 2 small olives. The pasta was loaded with sauce and hardly any cheese and the portions were small. The breadsticks HAD to be a day old. The environment was nice except for... More

The restaurant is now being renovated and looks and smells much better. I was starting to get really disgusted by the shape of this restaurant. It is the most popular place in Harlingen, always packed but I didn't want to go there. The food is average especially if you know everything is frozen and heated at the location. In that... More

On a recent business trip, we stopped by Olive Garden for dinner. I ordered Ravioli di Portobello. Delicious sauce, great tasting soup, and good salad. Overall a good filling dinner.

I came for the soup and salad but decided on the chicken marsala , which was not bad my wife tried the chicken scampi , but was not satisfied, she prefers my cooking when it comes to Italian food, but what caught my attention was Michelle the server. And how well she knew her wines, she did an excellent job.... More

yeah, i know, chain restaurant. here's the thing, you can spend comparable/more at the high class italian joint in town (downtown), and be condescended to in a pretty surroundings...i can supply details, or you can be pampered, spoiled and treated like your business counts, and the quality of food isn't that different, really take my word, or, again i can...

I love Logans. My wife and I stumbled into one in Topeka, Kansas, a few years ago. We just wanted a light supper. The first thing we were offered were some WONDERFUL fresh out of the oven yeast rolls. They are fabulous and come no matter what you order. They have great peanuts too that you can shell and use...
