Help! Italian in Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg? Lancaster?

evewitch | Jun 4, 2002 08:42 AM

This weekend, I am going to visit my husband who is working in Mechanicsburg. He has been rhapsodizing about the fact that there is an Olive Garden near the hotel, & I think he wants to take me there. (What can I say, his favorite meal is Shake & Bake chicken & mac&cheese in a box - yes that's one meal. His mom didn't cook.)

I think OG is an abomination, and Nonnie would roll in her grave. What to do? He likes Italian food, and just doesn't realize that OG is bad. Is there an alternative in this area? Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg or another nearby small town would be better, but I could con him into going to Lancaster if there is no other alternative.

Actually, it doesn't even have to be particularly great or authentic, as long as I can talk him out of OG. I live in small-town North Carolina, so my standards are by necessity somewhat lower than they used to be.

I have dutifully copied down past recommends for this area, but any additional help would be greatly appreciated.
