Dining Out

A few weeks ago my son, Karl, went to Olive Garden in Times Square and loved it! You can read his review by clicking here. Not surprisingly, my teen was not the only one to give Olive Garden a rave review. A recent positive review by Marilyn Hagerty, an 85 year old food writer from North Dakota, has caused a stir and gone viral!

Below are two photos from my son’s meal.

Looks sabroso/delicious doesn’t it?

Olive Garden serves fresh Italian food that would make you salivate. The ambiance in the Olive Garden near me is comfy, cozy, and very family friendly. Perfect for couples, families with children, a girl’s night out and teens out with friends!  I also love that their prices are reasonable because I won’t have to worry about breaking the bank when I want a night off from cooking!

With over 750 restaurants throughout the United States, I’m sure there’s one near you. I’m delighted to say that one Latina On a Mission reader will have an opportunity to win a $50 Olive Garden gift card and enjoy their local Olive Garden restaurant. To enter, just complete the Mandatory Entry below.
