The first Olive Garden opened on December 13, 1982 in Orlando, Florida, and the world wouldn't be the same without it. With all the different pastas, chicken dishes, salads and soups, choosing what you want to eat can be the hardest choice you'll make that day. That's why the restaurant has implemented things like choosing a small salad and soup or one entree to enjoy in the restaurant with another one to take home for later. They know that they have so much delicious food that they give their customers a chance to try more than one thing at a time.
Olive Garden is also known for their breadsticks, which come to your table when you get there and then keep coming until you tell them to stop. They are good to dip in soups, pasta sauces and olive oil, and they're even good on their own. Food orders can say a lot about a person. Those who order spicy food probably like a lot of excitement in their lives. Those who opt for a salad and no pasta are health conscious and probably like to work out.
