    i guess the general consensus is that olive garden will survive. however, nearly everyone believes it is sub standard and marginally over priced. you can do better people, yes you can. but golden corral should be condemned and boarded shut by the board of health in each ensuing town that they're in.

    The one, I'm familiar with here in Virginia: It's shocking to me that they haven't been shut down.. I think they walk a very fine line. Give me Olive Garden over them.

    OG is going nowhere. We had a dinner with the Darden CEO over at capital grille...and all he wanted to talk about was OG because they have the highest annual revenues of any restaurant in the US (over $4 billy).
    Almost twice as much as the nearest competitor (chilis).
    OG literally accounts for 12% of sales of the entire restaurant industry.

    according to the motley fool sales at the wretched olive garden are plummeting. so your alleged Darden CEO is a wet noodle. what he didn't say is that their expenditures far exceeded their revenue.

    how you figure? sales are going down, but i'm looking at their May income stmt now. 4.3B sales v 3.4B expenses. largest profit of all time.

    lol. Really? You spew based on 6 yr old figures.
    how are 6 yr old figures relevant?
    I’ll pull this tomorrow. My guess is that you are still wrong.

    I’ve been to OG once in like 15 years. But I think about it a lot.

    right. i misread the motley fool article. that's all. they made a comeback i guess although do not understand what the lure is which causes people to flock to it.

    Yeah, i get that.. The only time that I'm willing to stand in a LINE to eat is at a family gathering, which is long gone for me. Maybe a couple people at a fast food joint (not healthy) in a hunger pinch..
