I'll happily agree with you. I'm a fan of SI, and also Lorenzo's in Mesilla. I'm not a fan of Olive Garbage, though the crammed full parking lot there tells me a lot of Las Crucens are. I've never been to the OG in Las Cruces though I've been to stores in other places, and I'm sure it's exactly the same. That's the whole point of huge corporate chains.
OG will hurt a lot of locally owned Italian places...it does so in every city one is built. The alternatives for owners are: go out of business (like the Lorenzo's) or get much sharper with business management, operations and innovation in the front of the house and upgrade and perfect every possible thing coming out of the kitchen, the back of the house.
The "this was always good enough" attitude is a recipe for locked doors & bankruptcy when a big nationally advertised chain comes to town.

I am always disappointed with quality of food on Avenida de Mesilla. Pretty place but food does not match.

If you go to the Olive Garden for your Italian food, then you probably also go to Taco Bell for Mexican.

If you're the real tony Samuel you are a jerkoff, you've come to a restraunt I used to run and acted like the dumb jock you are. But I constantly "took care of you" hahahahahahahaha I spat, tainted and did many other unmentionable things to you food each and every time you ate there. Don't mess with people who serve you or you will pay. Dumb jock. That'll teach you some manners.
