good eats

Yesterday, while on the way home from a mad dash to Atlanta to visit a good friend in the hospital, we had the opportunity to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, The Old Spaghetti Factory. They have less than fifty locations around the country, most being in California and only a couple in the Southeast. So, we try to take advantage of any opportunity that we're even remotely close to one of their restaurants. Thankfully, we were only a few minutes away last night. However, it was already after 8:00 when we arrived and we still had over a three hour trip ahead of us, but we stopped anyway.

Really, there's nothing spectacular about the place, but the food is tasty and economical too. We each had a beverage, cheese bread, salad, an entree, spumoni for dessert and also a pint of their pesto dressing to take home with us, all for only about 25 bucks. For the price, you can't beat the quality of the food and service. So far, we've visited Spaghetti Factories in Atlanta, St. Louis and Seattle. We still have a few more left to go.
