EXCLUSIVE: McCain's Olive Garden Dinner

(CBS)
From CBS News' Ryan Corsaro:

(ORLANDO, FLA.) - When Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., gets hungry, he goes to his "favorite" restaurant. And last night, he dragged along his pal, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, John McCain...to an Olive Garden.

While members of the press were not allowed to be inside, CBS News bumped into McCain's server later on.

According to our source, McCain had spaghetti with meatballs and sausage.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., had fried tilapia.

And Cindy McCain had portabella ravioli.

The campaign treated Secret Service, and the bill came out to approximately $450.00.

They gave a $90 tip -- twenty percent.

As for what Graham, who spearheaded the trip, had to eat, the waiter said he could not remember.

"When I saw them come in, I was like wow -- John McCain is at Olive Garden," he said.
