really my wife worked at RL and said the carrots etc are all frozen and cooked in a microwave and the amount of butter on their food was sick.

I’ll listen to the CDL arse when she gets rid of her weight until then I’m fit and in shape as is my kids and I don’t need a hypocrite to tell my family what to eat, how much t eat and where to eat

BESIDES I CAN’T AFFORD TO EAT OUT DUE OT HER HUSBAND AND ME PAYING FOR HER MEALS AND HER FAMILY BEING WINED AND DINED

I've never been a big fan of most restaurant chains, but it's been well over 10 years since I've crossed the threshhold of an Olive Garden...when I want Italian, I'll go here...

..Their clamari is excellent, and I've developed a great fondness for the lobster ravioli...

Thanks to the wonderful economy, I can’t recall the last time I had dinner in a restaurant. Never really cared for Olive Garden...and there are far better seafood restaruatns than Red Lobster. I’d rather make my own.

Oh, there is a very IMPORTANT politically correct, dermatologic reason for this particular chain of restaurants.

How you is, baaaby:

Truly— venture socialism with a dermatologic preference. Part of re-distribution. Sure to repercuss in the restaurant business. Some pigs are more equal than others.

Their clamari is excellent

Is that a cross between a clam and a squid? Two of my favorites. Will have to try it one of these days.

Restaurants CANNOT make anyone fat. Period.

And since these restaurants have chosen to submit to the regime, I will not be making myself fat in their establishments.

Crap hole restaurants that’ve been dumming down American taste buds for 20 years. “All you can pasta” and endless amounts of bread are the main attractions at OG. What now? All you can eat broccoli? If you have any stock in this Co. Sell it.

If I am correctly recalling....Red Lobster donates funds to Planned Parenthood. For that reason, I ave avoided it for years.

Red Lobster, Olive Garden join Denny’s, McDonald’s, Burger King and TGI Friday’s as eating establishments that I will never walk into.

Not because of anything other than I think their food is lousy, over priced and I don’t care for the Junior High School Cafeteria atmosphere that they all share.

So after a couple plates of the Red Lobster all-you-can-eat shrimp, will Michelle come out and say "That's all you can eat. Now pay and go. And you better leave me a big tip or else I'll keep spitting on your food"?

OMG. We had both of these low-rent joints in our town. Both went under with in a year. The RL. NEVER had lobster, not once. I could never figure it out. And what they did have, lousy.

Wonder how much Chellie the Moocher received for this.

I love the “parents have to ask to get kids fries” deal.

When we used to be able to afford Red Lobster, we FOUGHT over the cheesy biscuits. By the time the food came, I would sweep the fries from my girls because they mass consumed enough cheesy biscuits that if they ate the fries, they would not eat anything else.

I got the seafood salad so Dad could get some huge seafood platter and our bill would stay below 75.00.

Red Lobster
she was there for two weeks and quit about 6 years ago when jobs were around.

She was disgusted to see servings of veggies put into a freezer and when someone ordered a plate with veggies on she would have to get the serving out of the freezer and put it into a microwave.

She saw food dropped on the floor and then picked up back on the plate by the cook and a waitress.

Personally when I could go out to eat and afford it I would go to a family place, mostly Italian

From Mr. Otis at your link:

"One thing you learn in the business world," says Otis, "is that there is a certain amount of seasoning that's required before you have the depth and breadth of experiences that you need to be a senior leader in a major company."

It's too bad nobody told that to Moochelle's hubby before we got stuck with him as POTUS.

Overpriced and overhyped Red Lobster has been off my list for years. Olive Garden is now permanently off my list as well. One of our local Korean Restaurants is more to my liking anyway.
