Olive Garden – Yuma, AZ

Foodwise, a review of one Olive Garden is a review of all. The menu here is generally identical at all locations as most chain restaurants are.

Bread sticks

Are these the main reason 90% of people eat at Olive Garden? Although it had been seven years since my last visit, bread sticks are still the magnet that pulls in the customers.

Garden salad

Good. Not great. Seemed like a lot more croutons than before and not enough black olives, but that’s just my preference.

Zuppa Toscana

The soups tasted better than I remembered, especially the Toscana. It possessed a spiciness that made my mouth tingle.

Pasta e fajioli

Another strong, pleasingly flavorful soup.

I believe the endless soup, salad and bread is the best value ($9.99) on a totally overpriced menu. Absolutely average pasta dishes for $14-18 is ridiculous. Come for the soup and salad or find a locally owned place for pasta.
