Cheap, Fast, Good, Italian. Free "unlimited" Breadsticks. Need I say more? I have to give this restaurant a shout-out. My friend Kim and I went to Fazolis for lunch yesterday and it was awesome! Now, you must know that I am a frequent flyer at Fazolis (as well as my husband - it's his favorite place), even when it is not so good. But yesterday .... the food was hot and we were in there and out and back to work in less than an hour. And, we had leftovers!
Kim ordered the baked ziti with meatballs (the meatballs were on the side -- weird) and I ordered the baked spaghetti with meat sauce. Yumm-O! Plus, the breadsticks were hot and not "sopping" with garlic butter. The only downside to the breadstick thing is that they do not walk the dining room asking you if you want more breadsticks anymore. They are still free and unlimited, but you must go to the counter and ask for them yourself. Bummer. Oh well, two was plenty for me.
Not only does Fazoli's have amazing pasta, they also have a rather large menu. From pasta to salad to pizza and sandwiches, and even Italian ices. Everything is great. And.. the entrees range from $3-$6! Talk about a deal! Fazoli's also offers catering, so if you have an upcoming event I would definitely recommend them. Plus, they also have a kids' night where kids can eat for 99 cents, color, and make crafts. How awesome is that??
So, the next time you are in the mood for Italian, but don't want to dress up or pay a lot of dough, swing by your neighborhood Fazoli's for some delicious, inexpensive, and very filling pasta! (oh, and by the way, take me with you!!) :)
