Four of us went to the Olive Garden in McAllen and had an awesome meal. We enjoyed Salmon, Chicken Parm, Shrimp Fettuccine. The service was great and we didn’t have to wait to get in on the Thursday before Good Friday at 7 pm!

We met friends at Olive Garden for dinner. The food was good and the service was also good. They kept us in fresh salad and hot breadsticks all evening.
