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....

Since my last visit to Olive Garden, I have noticed that the portions of food are now considerably smaller. There are new menus and prices have changed too. Everyone had something different and all us said the first the noticed was the portion size. The food was just average tasting, nothing like you would get in Italy, but most folks... More

My friend & I had the soup and salad lunch special. Our server started out doing a great job then towards the end she didn't fill our water. We had to wait a while for our check too. Chicken & Gnochi soup was good but the Gnochi wasn't done so it was doughy.

Once you've been to one Olive Garden you've been to all. Great waiter. Ok food. Clean. Fast. Nothing special, but nothing bad either.
