The wait staff were attentive and friendly; noticeably good service. And, you have got to try the Eggpland Parmagana; really good! They are in a great area with lots of hotels, fuel, and restaurants just one mile off of the I-40.

I have eaten at olive garden in many states but this one has the worst wait staff I have even been to. The food is not the best I have had much better at other olive gardens.

The wine sample was enjoyable. The beer was cold. The soup was excellent. The spaghetti was great with the basic meat sauce. Our server was great. She kept my soup bowl full. Really good for a chain restaurant.
