Lunch Menu Prices


Olive Garden menu prices may seem a little steep, but once you factor in the portion size, the quality of the food and the overall experience, it doesn’t look so bad. This is casual dining at its very best and while it’s a step above the likes of Macaroni Grill in terms of price, it’s also a step above in terms of quality.

Of course, if you are working on a limited budget and you have a big family to feed, then these Olive Garden menu prices are going to be a little too hot for you to handle. In that case, just pack the kids off to McDonalds and enjoy a healthier and fresher treat off the Olive Garden menu with your spouse.

The Lunch Menu prices are all listed below.

How Much is Soup and Salad at Olive Garden?

There are a number of different soups and salads on the Olive Garden menu. These include everything from House Salad and Minestrone, to Chicken Salad and Gnocchi. You will pay a minimum of $5.79 for these, but if you opt for the Unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadsticks then you will pay just under $11.

How Much is Olive Garden?

On the whole, Olive Garden is not that expensive. However, it starts to look expensive if you compare it to fast food chains and to cheaper chains like Romano’s Macaroni Grill. On the flip side, it begins to look very cheap when you compare it to chains like The Melting Pot.

It all depends on what you’re used to paying and how many people are in your group. It can begin to look very expensive when you start adding multiple dishes together for many members of your family. But for the quality of the food and the higher end experience, many people consider it to be worth it.

Most Popular Items on Olive Garden’s Menu

Two of the Top 3 most popular items on the Olive Garden menu are seen at just about every table — salad and breadsticks. While you can order a House salad as your meal, many target the large, delicious, shareable Garden-Fresh Salad that you can eat before the main course arrives. People often share these salads while basking in the overload of warm breadsticks at their table. Olive Garden is famous for their breadsticks, but some of their best dishes include the appetizer Lasagne Fritta and the entree Chicken Parmigiana.

Olive Garden Deals

Olive Garden Lunch Menu

Olive Garden deals aren’t very easy to come by, but they do exist. There are many coupons and promo codes out there, but deal sites aren’t always the best option for these. Many of these coupons have expired, the majority of them were never valid in the first place. Instead, you should look to get these codes and deals from the official source. Look at the Olive Garden menu itself, search the posters plastered on the outside of the restaurant and in local media. Even better, look at the social media pages. These are becoming a prime location for coupons and promo codes and most chains offer some form of freebie or deep discount through their Facebook and Twitter pages.

If you pay a visit during key holidays, off-peak times and slow days, then you can encounter even more of these. For instance, food holidays like National Pizza Day are always a good time to drop by an Italian restaurant. They all jump onboard for these days. Obviously, the majority of deals can be found on the Papa John’s menu, the Little Caesar’s menu and other pizza chain menus. But they are still available here as well and they can bring those Olive Garden menu prices down considerably.

These are foods that are unique to Olive Garden, foods that people have fallen in love with. Olive Garden recipes are sought after because everyone wants to create these dishes in their own home. And while some of the recipes are a closely guarded secret, most of them are very easy to replicate.

To see some Olive Garden recipes for yourself, take a look at the sections below. Here you will find Olive Garden recipes for their breadsticks as well as their Famous House Salad, two of the dishes that fans of this chain want to replicate more than any others.

How to Make Olive Garden Salad?

Olive Garden Recipe Garden Salad

The Olive Garden Famous House Salad really is as good as the Olive Garden menu claims it is. It is also very easy to make. You just need a few simple ingredients and you can bring this Olive Garden menu item to life.

Begin with a simple salad bag mixture, containing freshly washed leaves in a variety of flavors. Add half a red onion, chopped; half a dozen black olives; slices of sweet red pepper; a fresh tomato cut into quarters; half a cup of croutons; and some shavings of parmesan cheese on top.

Once you have those ingredients down then it’s time for the dressing. This is key and it’s one of the best things about this salad. You can use a simple white wine vinegar salad dressing or you can make your own. Combine half a cup of white wine vinegar with 1/3 cup of water and vegetable oil. Add a few tablespoons of honey, a beaten egg, a crushed garlic clove, a squirt of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, oregano and parsley.

That’s it! You have the perfect starter for any meal, as well as a great side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups of Warm Water

Olive Garden Recipes

Activate the yeast by mixing it with the warm water and then leaving it to sit for ten to fifteen minutes. Add the flour, all but a teaspoon of the salt and two tablespoons of the butter to the yeast. Mix everything together until combined and formed into a dough.

Knead the dough for five minutes. It should be smooth, but it shouldn’t be elastic. It is possible to overknead and to destroy the dough mixture.

Pull off pieces of the dough, roll into strips, place on a tray and then cover. Leave the tray in a warm place for an hour to prove. While this is going on, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

After proving, bake the bread for five minutes. While they are cooking, mixture the remaining butter, the salt and the garlic powder together and use this mixture to brush onto he breadsticks. Take them out, give them a light coating using half the butter mixture and then put them back into the oven for another five to ten minutes. Just watch and wait until they are golden brown.

After removing cooked breadsticks, brush with the remaining butter mixture and then serve!
