Is it weird that as a lifelong american i have never set foot into an olive garden? I think it's weird but I also never been to disneyland. The first time I tried five guys was like last month. I'm 30. I think the most exotic burger place i went to was when my dad would sometimes take me to Tommy's and get me a chili burger - but i found it overstimulating, especially that massive slice of tomato they would put in. Come to think of it, I get overstimulated quite easily. I think of places like Olive garden and just get confused at the idea. I think since I saw so many commercials for it I don't want to go there.

I don't think its weird. I think its an unspoken normal for people in their 30s now, the boomer vibe of loud, family sit-downs just isn't appealing. I don't like to be alone, but I would prefer a less stimulating atmosphere and Olive Garden isn't that.

Yikes. The reason you are not enjoying chain restaurants randomly is that you don't work with peers your age and have no disposable income whatsoever, ie not earning enough. Olive Garden is just one of the many options with a fast lunch of soup, salad and small entree that will get you back to the office within an hour.

Took my exgf to OG once because she said she loved going there. Dining room had carpet in it so it was musty and stained. Big parties of 8-10 people so fucking loud making the most horrendous messes possible. Poors acting like its fine dining because paying $40 for over boiled noodles is classy.

I think I got the tour of italy with 3 portions of food that italians would never make. It was edible, but very clearly dried noodles overboiled, doused in sauce thats been in a warming tray for a couple days. Lasagna that came from a much larger pan, and something else.

Seriously, I was upset because very clearly everything on the table should have cost $20 from the grocery store, and I think I ended up paying $80 for the meal. Breadsticks were good, lettuce was okay but clearly a pre-bagged lettuce.

Food service will slowly turn you into a psychopath. Shitty chains will accelerate that.

That's the kicker for me. The "restaurant experience" chain places offer doesn't add enough to the value to offset the fact the food itself I could make better at home or just buy cheaper premade from the grocery store.
Unless you're dragged along as part of a group or just want to abuse some endless-dish promotion, no real reason to go.

I have a friend who worked there, BRIEFLY, as a server. They said it was the worst place they’ve ever served tables at. That restaurant attracts, for whatever reason, a generally low-tipping, high-expectations crowd.

Italian restaurants are part of a culinary tradition going back thousands of years. They and their customers are extremely knowledgeable and demanding.

To excel, therefore, you'll need to learn the Italian language and be familiar with food jargon and some major dialects. You'll need to learn the history of Italian cuisine and how the ingredients are grown, processed, and marketed. Without doing these things, you will not be able to deliver the centuries-old regional meals demanded of your employer.

My ex-gf worked as a waitress at Olive Garden. She said she hated to wait on blacks. When you grated their cheese and asked them to say when they would never say stop they would just keep saying “just like that” over and over and she’d have to tell them she’d run out of cheese. Also she said they never leave a tip
