Love the salad and bread sticks. Good meals at a good price. Good variety to chose from. Staff always friendly. Can be a little noisey at times.

Four of us went to the Olive Garden in McAllen and had an awesome meal. We enjoyed Salmon, Chicken Parm, Shrimp Fettuccine. The service was great and we didn’t have to wait to get in on the Thursday before Good Friday at 7 pm!

We met friends at Olive Garden for dinner. The food was good and the service was also good. They kept us in fresh salad and hot breadsticks all evening.

We hadn't been to one of these in years, but it was right next door to our hotel (where we enjoyed complimentary cocktails), making it an obvious and easy choice after a very long day of travel. Well, they could not have cared less about...More
