Never Ending Eats Expands

Escondido’s Olive Garden is introducing the next phase in ‘never ending’ with its new Never Ending Classics promotion. Available in restaurants today (not just the Escondido location), the new limited-time offer gives guests unlimited servings of their most loved Olive Garden menu items, starting at $11.99.

Last year, Olive Garden fans proved that they can’t get too much of a good thing when they immediately claimed 21,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes, a seven-week all-access pass to the annual Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion. Now, guests’ cravings for lasagna or Chicken Parmigiana are satisfied through the never ending celebration.

The never ending lineup features five Olive Garden guest-favorite entrees: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Fettucine Alfredo, Lasagna Classico, Chicken Alfredo and Chicken Parmigiana.

Guests who can’t decide among their favorites can mix and match among the featured dishes with each refill.
