Unlimited breadsticks aren’t cool. You know what’s cool? Breadstick sandwiches that come with unlimited breadsticks.

Given that they sold out in an hour and fifteen minutes, you very likely missed your shot at a $100 pass to gorge on Olive Garden until you upchuck alfredo in the parking lot. Fret not!

Tired chain restaurant Olive Garden is trying a gluttonous new gimmick today: They'll sell a thousand people a "Never Ending Pasta Pass," valid for seven weeks, for a mere hundred bucks. Try it and see what gives out first—your deal, or your gut!

New research suggests that food at so-called "sit down" restaurant chains are actually less healthy than food at their "eat out of lap in car" fast food counterparts, thanks to ungodly portions and rosters of fatty, salty ingredients that could choke a Paula Deen cookbook.
Numbers are down this quarter at Olive Garden and Red Lobster (both owned by Darden Restaurants, Inc.), despite recent jazzy revamps including small plates and lighter menu options. Sales at Olive Garden are down 4%, while Red Lobster is down 5.2%. For some strange reason, people just don't seem to be gobbling…
This week, an elderly restaurant critic with a kind face wrote a glowing review of the Grand Forks, North Dakota Olive Garden, and the internet exploded into uproarious, superior laughter. Look at this rube stupefied by a basket of breadsticks! Overwhelmed by black olives! But why is this woman's sincere appreciation…
The company that owns both Olive Garden and Red Lobster, Darden Restaurants Inc., will be reducing the calories and sodium in its kids meals in an effort to provide healthier options in light of concerns about obesity in children.
