Joliet is Finally Getting Their Olive Garden!
November 9, 2021 10:51AM CST
It’s been a running joke on any Joliet-centric social media page.
A news story about a new restaurant opening up? Dozens of comments about how they wish for an Olive Garden.
A business closes down? Someone puts up a Photoshopped image of an Olive Garden in it’s place.
The tongue-in-cheek gag has been a thing for YEARS!
But it’s finally time for the joke to become reality!
Olive Garden has announced they are, in fact, opening a restaurant near the Costco at Rt. 30 and I-55!
Looks like it is set to open in 2022.
I’m actually more sad than anything! I think the inside jokes were better than the food!
But, Joliet, your craving for unlimited bread sticks will finally be fulfilled!!! ha!
