Old Spaghetti Factory fer Cheap

Posted by Patrick Alan Coleman on Tue, Jan 6, 2009 at 3:26 PM

Something about the words "old," "spaghetti," and "factory" just don't seem to go together for me—these are three things I wouldn't want to enjoy all at once. But for some reason, the name has not kept Ye Olde Spaghetti Factory from staying open (and birthing a franchise) for the last 40 years.

I must admit that I suffer a bit of cognitive dissonance when I consider that the other landmark Italian restaurant in Portland, Genoa, is now closed after 38 years, while the Spaghetti Factory keeps pumping out the pasta. I know you can't really compare the two... But still...

At any rate, in order to celebrate those 40 years in business, all Old Spaghetti Factory locations will have a special $3 menu tonight. The menu includes items like the standard spaghetti with rich meat sauce for $2.95, along side five other entrees. Included in the price are salad, bread, and a scoop of spumoni. Not a bad deal at all.

Go. Eat a sad and celebratory dinner.
