Its just a fcking restaurant! If you dont like it, dont go there. Very simple. If some people like it and go there, so what? They can eat wherever they want.

Its not necessarily hate. Its all the big fuss this area makes over a chain restaurant. If another McD's or Arby's opened up, would there be such a fuss like Olive Garden? Granted the menus are completely different but its like an Applebys. Its just a f-ing chain eatery.

You live in Utica, so you know that there is absolutely nothing to do but spew hate on Topix. Pick any subject and post misinformation and insults.

Mc D's and arbys do not matter as they are fast food not real restaurants. Local places do not care about them nor do they want those type of customers in their local restaurants anyway.

Its all smoke and mirrors with those chain restaurants like Apple Crap and Olive Dump. All claim to be your local place to be but in reality their corp offices are nowhere to be seen in this area.

You will see some local places start to shut down and the chains will hope to make up the local loss, but those customers who like the local restaurants will just find other local homemade places to go.

I myself may try Olive Dump once, but don't expect much as I am from a cooking family and know Italian food well. I may just go there to hassle them as they claim they are Italian food, but I know the real deal.
You re all so funny

Hundreds and hundreds of people have dined there since it opened on Monday... It is well received and welcomed except for a few scared "local crap Italian dumps". They wish that they could compete with them, let alone be as successful as they are. It's so laughable and pathetic.

When people are not secure and have insecurities, they leash out against others. These insecure people have a warped mindset that their way of thinking is what everyone should be thinking. Any time you want to feel better about yourself, just spend a few minutes on Topix.

How typical of Utican emotional infants, arguing and bickering over an Olive Garden restaurant.

Ah, Utica, Your emotional IQs are so low that 12-year-olds laugh at you.

Of course, because as we all know, the best Italian food is manufactured in mass quantity in some hell hole factory by slave wage assembly line workers in 3rd world countries, vacuum packed with so called "sauces" so infused with chemicals and preservatives that they are unrecognizable as anything naturally occurring on this planet, stored in packages which could withstand nuclear fallout, shipped cross-country to be microwaved at the local Olive Garden and dumped out of plastic bags and slopped onto your plate for your dining pleasure.

Why would anyone want fresh chicken, veal, pasta, and sauces prepared by real cooks when they can eat microwaved, manufactured "food products" which almost tastes like food?

That's what capitalism is all about, isn't it?

If the locals can provide better food/service OR a better price, they'll do fine.

But if the local joint produces food that is no better (or marginally better) at a significantly higher price, they are in trouble. And frankly, if a local gets stomped by a restaurant that is as bad as you say Olive Garden is, they don't deserve to stay in business.

The good local restaurants will do fine, the bad ones will wilt under the pressure and die.

Either way, the competition is GOOD for the consumer.

A fast-casual restaurant. You will never find home cooked meals there. All frozen processed food cooked by wannabe Italian chefs. Enjoy the breadsticks and watch out for the e.colli in your salads.

I'd rather wait at a table for my meals than wait 20 - 30 minutes for a table.

Anyone who would eat at Olive Garden needs to have their head examined. It's the Italian equivalent of Applebees.

Forgive us all for not thinking like you. Perhaps you can post your e-mail address so you can consult you before we decide where to eat. What were we all thinking, we should have known your taste preference is something we all should have. Can you please post your favorite car so we all know what to buy? Can you please post your favorite television shows so we all know what to watch? What style of house do you prefer so I don't waste my time looking at others? And yes, I will have my head examined for not thinking exactly like you. Thank you so much for telling me how wrong I'm living my life and the poor decisions I make as where to eat. I'm getting ready to purchase some furniture for my dinning room, what style do you like?? I don't want to waste my money on something I like!!!!

Oh, I would never dispute the right of Olive Garden to open up a branch of their cesspool joints locally, or people's right to clean out their digestive systems by eating there. I was commenting in response to someone's post that the Olive Garden was better than local Italian joints. The only way that could be possible if the locals began serving "chicken flavored meat products", poured ketchup on their pasta, and outsourced the actually "cooking" of the "food" to slaves working in rat and roach infested sweat shops in Indochina.

I don't think even Dave Morgan was at that point.
