Breadsticks, lasagna, and… knife fights? Secrets of Olive Garden revealed!

People really love the Olive Garden.

And why shouldn't they? The waiters can be extremely helpful. Small-town reviewers rave about it. There's a "Pasta Pass" that gives you dozens of free meals. And speaking of free, how about those delicious breadsticks?

But wait, there's more!

Now, you might think that running out of breadsticks would be the strangest thing to happen in an Olive Garden. But no ...
