Typical location
After winning a gift card for Mobil in a competition, it dawned on me that they have fewer locations than in the past.  Exxon (formerly Esso; name used outside the US today) had a few in CNY as well prior to their reunion with Mobil as descendants of Standard Oil Company.

The Old Spaghetti Factory

The Old Spaghetti Factory, Toronto
Toronto location.
A relative in Maricopa County in the Arizona Capital Region had mentioned The Old Spaghetti Factory which I confused with a local place in my area called Spaghetti Warehouse.  As Italian food is in my tomato sauce blood, I thought this is the next post.  Too easy to go to their competitor The Olive Garden around here.  Only so many Italian chains not counting pizza or even calzones.
