I heard from a reliable source that an Olive Garden is going to be built near Hixson Ford. Some people from Olive Garden were here recently surveying land near there.

I don't know if it can be built that soon, May 2012. If it is next to Ford, will they have row boats to get to it since all that is very low? Lets get us a HOOTERS and really have some place to go.

Y'all should really give Verona's a try. It is authentic, not frozen, and way better than any chain restaurant. It is located where the old Sammy's used to be.

I am all for a new restaurant in the Alexandria area, but Ms Scarlett is right. Verona's has an interesting menu and the staff are friendly and efficient. Olive Garden has a great (all you can eat) salad and fantastic bread; unfortunately, their entrees are mediocre, bland and unimaginative.

I think that Olive Garden serves a fantastic seafood portifino. There are other dishes well worth trying too.

HOOTERS

I myself would love to have a Hooters. The Buffalo Wild Wings is ok, but I find it to be expensive, and very poor service. Seems they much prefer a very young crowd, mainly spoiled brat kids out spending mommy and daddys money. If your over 30 or so, you dont seem to have good service coming.

Dumbazz waitresses, who do they think tips....the youngsters or older established people.

I know for a fact they even serve underage kids. My grandson has been going their and he says they NEVER check his ID..I called the manager and he said it wasn't true. So I went one day with him and lo and behold they served him a beer and NEVER ask for his ID.

. So what! Your Grandson is breaking the law also! It could be a problem for that particular O G. You failed to state what town or state. That's not exclusive to just O G.

I don't love it.
I find their fare nothing more than "chain store" food.
Their entrees are probably mass produced, frozen and shipped to the individual locations where a microwave is used to heat them.
Blah!
