Olive Garden comps family’s entire meal
Olive Garden comps family’s entire meal

A user on Reddit posted an Olive Garden receipt that showed his entire family’s meal comped at a Vernon Hills, Illinois, location. According to that user’s account of things, there had recently been a fire at his parent’s house, and after his 3-year-old daughter told the manager that “Grandpa’s house burned down,” their bill came back with everything comped.

… Some have doubted the receipt’s authenticity, but Consumerist checked into it and it appears legit. And a rep for Olive Garden says the receipt “is real and was posted by the guests, not by anyone at Olive Garden or [parent company] Darden.”
