Yummy

On our way through Lubbock going home, we had dinner at Olive Garden. The staff was friendly and the food was superb. The herb crusted Salmon was especially wonderful. The berry sangria wasn't half bad itself!

An 8 hour road trip found us longing for a familiar restaurant and we're glad we chose this particular Olive Garden. We sat at the bar for a quick meal and Ivan took good care of us. We've never seen anyone work as hard as he does. It is refreshing when an employee makes eye contact, listens, and ensures the... More

In my travels I have eaten at many Olive Gardens. My all time favorite here is the soup and salad with unlimited breadsticks. I have found the Lubbock location to be one of the best Olive Gardens I have eaten. The service and food quality here have always been very good and consistent.

salad and bread good, soup rather lackluster. Waitress very attentive and gave our large group good service. Last time I did business here was carry out and I was very disappointed with lack of service when I went to pick up and the food was so so. We have so many new restaurants here now, there's no need to go... More

The atmosphere and food in universaly very good at all of the Olive Gardens that we have visited over the country. They do offer great new items on the menus as well as the favorites. I highly recomend this resturant.

Brought the team in for dinner and the girls at the front were amazingly accomodating. There were lots of people there, yet they sat us quickly. The service was great and the food delicious as always. You cannot beat The quality and quantity for that price. Salad, soup, bread and main course.... $15 Little cash, lots of yummy!!

Their pasta dishes are always plentiful and very good. But, the past fazul (sp) was delicious. It's their Italian bean soup. Wonderful.

Arrived almost at closing, yet the staff was extremely accommodating. Quickly seated & our waiter, Romeo, was very quick to get us our drinks & food. Romeo was delightful throughout our meal which was excellent as well. Food was very fresh & hot & at no time did we feel rushed to hurry since it was a little past closing.... More

Quality of food was very poor. The garlic rosemary chicken was overcooked and tough, with too much salt used in preparation. Steamed spinach was supposed to come with the chicken but they only included 3 or 4 steamed leaves. This was my first time ordering from this Olive Garden and I will not be returning. I do not recommend this... More
