I eat at chain restaurants all the time. Yes even the fat man succumbs to a “Chain Dinner”. A recent trip to the Olive Garden the fat man got a bad meal. The pasta was watery, the chicken was tough, and the fat man went without a good meal. I called the manager over to my table and with the diplomacy of Churchill I showed him a bad meal. He agreed. The restaurant was clean, spacious, well appointed to make you think you were in Italy. He refunded the fat mans meal (even though the fat man had eaten most of it) and gave us a gift card so we would come back. Usually when I confront a manager he tells me to get out of his place and have my taste buds checked. I will go back to the Olive Garden. I love their crisp salads, and their soups. Yes they are too salty but I am a salt man. And when my wife and I leave for under $30.00 we are well fed. Happy people are usually well fed .So if you are on Route 22 in Springfield NJ go to the Olive Garden and you will be treated well. Our waiter was the best. And PS my wife got the good meal.
