Olive Garden Resorts to Buy Two Dinners, Get Free Movie Deal


You’d be hard-pressed to find a foodie who actually likes Olive Garden. Who likes unlimited breadsticks, sure. Who likes liking things ironically, fine. Who likes cheap food and even cheaper movies? Okay, you might have us there.

From now through September 21, Olive Garden is partnering with Redbox to offer a new “Dinner, Dinner & A Movie Deal.” To-go guests simply pick two dishes from OG’s “Buy One Take One” menu, then text their Olive Garden restaurant and check number to ‘727272’ to receive a promo code for a free 1-Day Redbox Blu-Ray or DVD rental.

Dishes on the BOTO menu include spaghetti with meat sauce, fettuccine alfredo, shrimp alfredo, and more, with prices ranging from $14 – $19 approximately. Sure it’s a little pricier than your standard frozen pasta TV dinner, but at least you don’t have to cook it yourself.

Dominique would be a foodie if she had money to pay for food. For now, she gets by just looking at food photography, which results in at least one more starving journalism student every time Instagram breaks down.

That’s still not enough to get me to go there. I’ll go if others are going and that’s the restaurant of choice, but really, I’m perfectly happy with the salad and the bread sticks. That’s the best part of the meal. I’ll fill up on just that and I’m good. If they would ever ditch the salad and bread sticks, there’d no longer be a reason to go at all.

Darden sold Red Lobster and it’s now a stand-alone restaurant, so we’ll see if they’ve gotten any better. We’re going there tomorrow for lunch.
