Pat & Oscar's will be apologizing to San Diego this weekend for the recent E. coli outbreak.
As a way of thanking San Diego for its support, Pat & Oscar's is offering free meals -- salad, pizza and breadsticks -- to all dine-in guests over a three-day period: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 23-25.
The outbreak of E. coli poisoning has sickened at least 37 people in San Diego County. The County Health Department said the victims became ill after eating salads at some of the Pat & Oscar's restaurants in San Diego.
The restaurant has since fired the lettuce supplier and added more guidelines to oversee salad preparation in their kitchens.
