Macaroni Grill: exercise in mediocrity

We finally got one in Tallahassee, and it is packing them in like cattle. Waits of one to one and 1/2 hours not unusual for weekend. And when you get in, there is one bright spot: the warm rosemary bread, though better with butter in my opinion than the olive oil.
Dishes we received 45 minutes after ordering were warm at best or more like room temperature. A "custom" pasta order charging $2 extra for some mozarella contained two nickel sized peices. The rigatoni with chicken contained maybe 1-2 oz. of chicken breast meat. Dishes are bland. I am a big fan of Chili's and Maggiano's so I know this chain
(Brinker) can do it right... but they are failing in Romano's Macaroni Grill.
