    Every year, at Christmas, my sister and I go to dinner then do a little shopping. We choose Olive Garden, not because it's the best, but because it's in the mall parking lot. Well, last night I drove directly to the wonderful Italian Restaurant down the street from me. It was a much much better meal! The mall also lost our business, because instead of driving the 20 minutes, we went to the smallert stores which were closer! Thank you JoJo's Italian Restaurant, you are our new tradition!

      I live in Massachusetts, and we have sub/pizza shops that serve better Italian meals than Olive Garden.   All of the Olive Garden stuff is pre-cooked.  Nothing is fresh.  I would much rather support local restaurants not only because they give back to the community, but because the quality of the food is fresher and better and you get much better service.
