A food truck is rolling through Dallas and Fort Worth July 9, 10 and 12 promoting its new breadstick sandwiches. We tried them -- both the chicken parmesan and the Sicilian meatball -- and they are not the best thing since sliced bread. But those breadsticks: They are.

"Our breadsticks are iconic, and we know they are a favorite," says Jessica Dinon, manager of communications for Olive Garden. That's why the company devised the two new breadstick sandwiches. They debuted June 1.

The breadstick sandwiches are built with one oversized breadstick sliced in half, slathered with marinara and filled with either chicken parm or meatballs. They're worth a try for the price of free.

Plus: The breadsticks are free, too, when the truck rolls into Dallas-Fort Worth.

No such thing as a free lunch? Think again.

Here's where you can find the truck in Dallas and Fort Worth:

  • July 9: noon to 3 p.m. at Pegasus Plaza in downtown Dallas, Main at Akard in Dallas
  • July 10: 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the Continental Avenue Bridge in Dallas, 115 Continental Ave., Dallas
  • July 12: 1 to 6 p.m. at Sunday Funday at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, 395 Purcey St., Fort Worth
