This location is consistent with the brand. Wait staff was busy but attentive. Food was hot and timely. Popular place and can get busy at prime time. Restrooms could use a little attention. Will visit again.

Food is good, the place is well kept, the waiters are nice and helpful, but the service is slow no matter how many people are there.

We highly recommend Olive Garden and thank them for offering free dinners for our veterans. We take advantage dining with our veteran husbands every November with at least two or three other couples. Very good service and we go there every chance we get

Called in an order @ 7:45p for pickup @ 8:10p. Arrived at 8:10 on the dot. Still had to wait five minutes. This would have gotten them 3☆. However, once I get back to the hotel and began my dinner only to find humongous potato slices, 1/3in thick. So, yeah, this place doesn't care.

We used to go to Olive Garden in McAllen, TX on expressway 83. On the last few visits the wait staff are always in a rush, hard to wave them down, sometimes even making eye contact, we were still ignored. Even if we like the food, we still leave annoyed. Message fir management - good food attracts customers, but good... More

Olive Garden has always been one of my favorites because of great selection on menu, pleasant surroundings and good service. I think it is good selection for any age group.

Always deliver every time we visit. Best plate for me was the Tour of Italy. A little of everything if you want to taste spaghetti, lasagna, and chicken Alfredo.

Even though it was around 1:30 there was still a line to be seated so we sat in the bar. We sat for some time and finally a manager came over to see if he could get us a drink. He brought our menus and took our order. We have been here many times for lunch and typically order the... More
