There's An 11-Inch Chicken Parm on Olive Garden's New Menu, So BRB, Grabbing My Stretchy Pants
Something, uh, big is happening at Olive Garden. On April 1, the chain announced that it'd be serving a few of its dishes in larger portion sizes with the launch of Giant Italian Classics. The promotion features giant twists on classic dishes like chicken Parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs, and they all look like they're large enough to feed a family of four.
From now until May 27, guests can choose from four giant dishes — one of which is a foot-long chicken parm — starting at $13. "Olive Garden is known for its generously-portioned, craveable Italian food at a strong value — with unlimited salad or homemade soup and breadsticks served with every meal," Jennifer Arguello, Olive Garden's executive vice president of marketing, said in a release. "And we regularly hear how much our guests love our timeless dishes like Chicken Parmigiana and our classic meatballs. So, in the spirit of Italian generosity, we're serving up them up BIGGER than ever before with the introduction of Giant Italian Classics."
Though the deal sadly doesn't include foot-long breadsticks, they're served unlimited alongside each dish, in addition to soup or salad. Read ahead to see photos and descriptions of each dish.
