Good

I had the all you can stand salad. I don't think it had any dressing. The waiter was really nice. He gave us lots of cheese. The food was good and generous helpings. I will return. We were able to sit and chat for over an hour without any one hinting we needed to leave.

Very small portion of Lasagna covered with plenty of Sauce. Didnt like the Dressing on the Salad. There is no choice. Wish I'd ordered off Dinner Menu. Hardly worth driving there for. I won't be going back anytime soon.

I like this particular Olive Garden because we can almost always get a booth and the wait is not very long. You have to take into consideration that I am old, so we don't go eat at the same time the younger crowd does. I like being able to go right on the cusp of it being dinner, yet still... More

This location happens to be the location I grew up eating at with my family. It was the nearest to my hometown (an hour away) at that time. We just happen to be driving back through a hometown visit back to San Antonio when my husband suddenly asked if my son and I would like to eat here. We luckily... More

I typically find little to complain about when dining out however tis restaurant lacked pretty much everything. The food was not up to par at all. We received our food and it was still chilled, it seemed to have been microwaved because the edges were hot. Wait staff was very rude, our waiter seemed very put out that he had... More

Stop in for the all you can eat soup, salad & breadstick for $6.99, worth every penny! Highly recommend the gnocchi soup, hot & creamy. Salad and breadsticks were also very good. The garlic rosemary chicken was also very good. Good food and service.

The food was great, since I was alone I had my meal at the bar. I wait time was a real bear. I had to wait a while for service but it could have been because of the long wait time....

They were great at one time, but not now. Serves is fast but not good, food is ok, but portions are on the small side. We just don't go anymore. Who ever is in charge of this chain should be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUD CARTER, TEXAS
