I sometimes pick up a to go order here and have found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The dinners are consistent with the Olive Garden cuisine.

Olive Garden has added tabletop kiosks to their restaurant in McKinney. While waiting for our order we played a trivia game on the kiosk at our table. We did not see any warning prior to starting the game that there would be $1.99 care added to our bill. I think this is ridiculous and outrageous to charge for playing a... More

My husband and I love Olive Garden. Went for lunch and enjoyed the salad, Chicken Parmesan and Mamas Trio. The food here is excellent and I love the service.

Very good food with large portions, and not overpriced. It was hard to eat the entire sandwich and salad that we ordered.

Time for a family outing to the Olive Garden! Om: I’ll admit, this is my Pizza Hut for the Italian food game – it’s a chain restaurant and I shouldn’t like it as much as I do…but for some reason it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. We got seated immediately on a Sunday night and placed our order. Out comes... More

We bwent to this local standard for a quick dinner. Usually you know what you are going to get at an Olive Garden. In this case, we were disappointed. The food was just not up to the standards that we usually find at one of these places. The service was good and the place was clean, but the food quality... More

We ate here for Sunday lunch and it was good. We were seated promptly and our server greeted us and took our drink orders promptly as well. The salad was really fresh and we love the dressing. I had chicken parm and it was really good. I got angle hair pasta with it. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

Occasionally I check in to this Olive Garden for a take home dinner. The wait staff on the "to go" side is very good. Never have had an error on the order and they are friendly about it. They have a good variety on the menu and the food is good.

we had a short wait due to the size of our party, but was seated and served pretty quickly. Our waitress was good and didn't even use a notepad! She remembered everyone's order and kept drinks filled. Enjoyed our visit very much.
