I ate here on memorial day. I will never go back to another Olive Garden ever!!! The salad was awful. I ate the chicken alfrido. It was ok but an hour after I ate there I was throwing up. Would no go back. Very terrible.

It was crowded in the evening was a weekday. It is better to order more than one person cooking so many.
