on the one hand Olive Garden is bland corporate Italianish “american casual dining” and representative of the way late capitalism homogenizes everything

on the other hand for a lot of people it IS the fanciest restaurant in their area that they can occasionally splurge on and a lot of the disdain for it feels more classist than anything?

it’s a weird nexus of things

@elchapo it's a place with food and some of that food tastes good

@norikawa this is perhaps the most measured of takes

@elchapo tbf it's about the most extreme take I can muster myself to have about olive garden
