No kidding. If you're gonna have to get a chain Italian joint, at least get a Maggianos.

it depends where you live. if youre in a medium to large city theres really no excuse to eat at a middle tier chain restaurant in fact they dont exist in the city limits where im at because they cant compete

it's mediocre italian food it might be considered good if it were cheaper

See, this is the honest truth and then there is me being an Italian.

I can make better sauce and salad.

It would be like offering a rancher a frozen chuck steak.

At least the money spent on the local place probably stays local. It'll stick around the local economy a lot closer than any Olive Garden profits will, anyhow.

I worked at one almost 20 years ago and there was a rule about how many pepperoncinis (peppers) you could put in a salad based on how many people were at the table.

Do they not have salt on the tables where you live? If so, then yes that is a terrible restaurant.

I'm not going to get into a whole 'how to cook' thing here but bro table salt is not sufficient replacement for proper seasoning.

If you're not salting your pasta water you're doing it wrong. Period.

You shouldn't tell people what to do and what to like. It makes you look arrogant. Definitely not in the Costco thread.

MISSED CONNECTION

Your cart: rotisserre chicken, 3 boxes of milk, 1 frozen 5 lb. bag of broccoli
My cart: rotisserre chicken, chicken thigh pack, 36 eggs

We met in the refrigerator section. You had your head in the fridge, getting out the Kirkland Signature greek yogurt. I waited, as I needed to grab a twin pack of yogurt, too. You held the door open, looked at my cart, then looked at me. We nodded at each other knowingly. This was the place to get great deals on macros.

If you ever need a spotter at the gym, respond with the color of my costco freezer bag

Lol if you think cooking is some kind of art full of opinions and free spirits. Art doesn't exist. It's all hard science, and the best are so especially skilled and drilled in the rules that they can make fools think art is happening.

Like you think the dude wrapping his polish up in his pizza slice is some fatlord savant, but he's hitting all the basic rules of culinary excellence.

Costco should just create a side bar area and put up their TVs to show the sports games and serve hard drinks at discounted prices and in bulk along with the food. "I'll have a shor....uhh...give me the 56 liter Christmas Ale and a pack of your 5 whole Turkeys in Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Yes I'm here by myself. Churro for dessert."
