Stumped at the Olive Garden Frisco TX

My daughters and I stopped into the Olive Garden in Frisco last night. I don’t care what day of the week it is, there’s a wait to get a table. Olive Garden must be doing something right!

Olive Garden Frisco TX

When the server delivered dinner, she asked us if we wanted some grated cheese on our meals. As she put it on, she asked us if we knew what kind of cheese was used. Parmesan was my guess…wrong! We tossed out a couple of quick follow-up guesses to no avail. My daughters even went online with their phones hoping Google would provide the answer. Nothing!

We eventually gave in and told her that she won. What was the correct answer? Romano cheese is used. Apparently Parmesan cheese is a bit too spicy for most people so Romano is used unless otherwise requested.

We had a good meal and some fun as well. Next time we’ll be ready!
