Olive Garden

Reviewed By BadgerRetirees

When you're on a road trip and visit an Olive Garden you have certain expectations regarding atmosphere, service and the food. This location did not disappoint. We stayed at the Fairfield, just on the other side of the highway, so this property was very close. The restaurant was busy and a little too noisy, but the service was prompt and attentive. The food was consistent Olive Garden - very tasty.

Stopped here to carbo-load before marathon. Spaghetti with sausage was better than what I'd do at home with some Prego, but not by much. There are fast-casual Italian places in Atlanta where you can get pasta for less than is much, much better. The real kicker was a little note on the receipt saying "Tax may include a small non cash adj" I know from eating elsewhere in Waco that the total tax is 8.25%. Sure enough, the "tax" line for my meal was 11.5%.I understand that credit cards charge merchants a fee and I respect their right to offer "cash discounts" or the like to offset this. What I have a problem with is not disclosing this type of fee to the customer. Was it buried somewhere in the menu? Maybe, but it was definitely not obvious.

Portofino Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By GrahamTrucks

The evening we came here they were staff challenged but we worked through it ok. Lasagna was great, shrimp fettuccini probably not something we would recommend. Sauce was just too watery, but outside of that food was great. $4 house wine was a nice addition. I would consider this traditional italian and a great value for the money!

I'm guessing many people drive by and think less for stopping. If so you just missed a great pizza restaurant. Our Taco pizza was the best we've ever had and we happened to hit happy hour for great margaritas. The service was very good as well.

Baris III Pasta & Pizza

Reviewed By MartyParty4

After we toured Baylor University, the college kids recommended we go to Baris for food. They raves about it. Prices are cheap and service was good. Food was alright but not overly impressed. The pink sauce was recommended for us to try and we gave it a thumbs up.

Reviewed By whatatripwehad

it's good enough to get really busy, still, they move folks thru pretty quickly without rushing anybody, its a nice small place the owner will visit with you and wants to know you are well taken care of, and the food is quite good, more then just pizza, and of the 8 of us that just ate there together, and everybody had something different, it was all good.. my only issue was that they delivered the non-pizza meals well before they brought the pizzas, so this meals just sat there cooling themselves since nobody in our party wanted to eat before everybody was served.. and generally the service was just a bit less attentive then I expect, nonetheless, we all enjoyed it.
