The Old Spaghetti Factory celebrates with $3 menu
The Old Spaghetti Factory celebrates its fortieth birthday this year, but instead of crying about middle age, the famous chain is throwing a party.
On Tuesday, January 6, diners at all 37 locations nationwide, including the one in Denver, at 1215 18th Street, will offer full meals for around $3, or about what they were when the company first opened for business in Portland, Oregon in 1969.
Denver's location opened just four years later in the historic Denver City Cable Railway Company building and has been there ever since - making the Old Spaghetti Factory an historic landmark in its own right.
Prices on the Tuesday night menu range from $2.35 for spaghetti with tomato sauce (normally $7.99) to $3.35 for spaghetti with browned butter and cheese (normally $9.99). All dinners include salad, bread and ice cream for dessert. The deal lasts from 5 p.m. to close on dine-in meals only; the restaurant won't be taking reservations that night.
The Old Spaghetti Factory will also offer 40 percent its dinner menu on Mondays and Tuesdays for the rest of January. Go to www.osf.com for more info. -- Jonathan Shikes
