Twitter Thread: People Recall Chain Restaurants They Thought Were Super Fancy As Kids

Everyone loves to mock Olive Garden for their iconic breadsticks and overcooked, highly caloric pasta dishes, but do you remember being a kid, twitching with excitement in the backseat of your parents’ minivan on the way to a fancy evening at the local Olive Garden, or Sizzler, or TGI Friday’s?

Check out some highlights we grabbed from the amusing thread.
