I love dining in at Olive Garden, but the Olive Garden To-Go Menu has become one of my favorite dining options lately, since I can get all my favorite Olive Garden menu items for more than 40% off the original price.
I love saving money on the Olive Garden menu, but there are some special tips and tricks to save on Olive Garden to-go orders — including a permanent 5% discount on your order, which items you should get, and what the deal is with Olive Garden breadsticks for takeout. I’ll show you how to work it.
Save 50% on Olive Garden takeout meals with the Family Style Bundles.
Olive Garden is pushing their Family Style Bundles (they say serve 4-6 but the portions are ginormous, so I’d say serve six easily) for Olive Garden takeout, and it turns out this is a great deal. They include house salad and 12 breadsticks.
Here’s the math:
Compare to single portion entree: $15.79 per serving
Save $8.12 per serving, or 51%
Compare to single portion entree: $14.49 per serving
Save $7.07 per serving, or 49%
Compare to single portion entree: $17.99 per serving
Save $7.74 per serving, or 43%
If you’re wondering which family meal deals are worth it, we’ve done all the math for you to help you decide.
Buy a discounted Olive Garden gift card using your Target RedCard to save 5%.
One of the best benefits to having a Target RedCard is having 5% off everything you purchase at Target including gift cards — including Olive Garden gift cards. This way, you can get a 5% discount on every order, including Olive Garden takeout orders.
Sign up for the Olive Garden eClub to get high-value coupons and a free birthday dessert.
Once you become an Olive Garden eClub member, you’ll be getting coupons like 10% off one entree or 15% off your entire order. They’ll even send you a dessert coupon worth up to $8.29 during your birthday month.
There are lots more Olive Garden deals you’ll need to know before you can start eating more breadsticks.
You’ll only get 2 breadsticks per entree ordered with Olive Garden takeout.
Unlimited breadsticks are queen at Olive Garden, but you won’t be able to get them when you order Olive Garden take-out. Instead, you’ll be given 2 breadsticks per entree ordered.
Alternatively, you can order six more Olive Garden breadsticks for $4.29 or a dozen for $6.49. These can come baked or unbaked.
Olive Garden delivery is only available through DoorDash in certain areas.
Olive Garden delivery from third-party apps like Uber Eats and Grubhub straight-up doesn’t exist. Depending on your location, you can get delivery from DoorDash, but we haven’t seen anything lower than $5.99.
You can get delivery at certain locations through the Olive Garden website, but you’ll need to order at least $50 worth of food, and the delivery fee will be 10% of your order.
Get $5 Olive Garden meals to go every time you dine in.
You’ll have to dine in to get this deal, but one of the best Olive Garden deals is the $5 Take Home Entree. You’ll have your pick from Fettuccine Alfredo, Five Cheese Ziti al Forno, and Spaghetti with Meat Sauce for only $5 for you to take home for the next day, as long as you purchase an entree in the restaurant.
Unfortunately, you won’t get any breadsticks with this order.
