CHICAGO — Olive Garden has heard the pleas of the people and is giving out free breadsticks and samples of its breadstick sandwiches via food truck.
The food trucks will be available four times throughout the city from Thursday to Sunday. If you catch one, you can snag a free sample of Olive Garden's Italian meatball sandwich and chicken parmigiana sandwich. Free breadsticks sans the sandwich bits will also be available at the food trucks, said Olive Garden spokeswoman Jessica Dinon.
The arrival of the sandwiches — they were added to Olive Garden's menu on June 1 — caused a stir because the buns are slightly altered versions of the restaurant's much-beloved breadsticks.
Check out the food truck schedule here:
• Thursday: 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Daley Plaza Farmers Market
• Friday: 2:30-7:30 p.m. at U.S. Cellular Field
• Saturday and Sunday: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Southport Art Festival, 3700 N. Southport Ave.
Ending times will vary depending on availability. You can also follow the food truck on Twitter for updates.
