Its one of my favorites for the price very good lamb shank and reliably good margarita service can be on the slow side though

The Outback for a meal is always good. The service is excellent as are the STEAKS... The cost is a little on the High Side, but not really all that bad. Want a good Steak, go to the Out Back and be spoiled by the friendly folks that will wait on you. Good Place to eat and highly recommended...

I order the house salad and a cup of the potato soup. I asked for soup to come first, it was just barely warm enough to melt the cheese. Good flavor, just not hot enough. Then came my warm, wilted, salad. if lettuce is that wilted, please just don't serve it. My date ordered the tripple grill combo. Ribs, chicken,... More

I say this with a heavy heart...my last visit was like the previous (i always like to give a second chance) not good. The so called Filet Mignon on both occasions was tuff and I even questioned if it was a filet at all! Other people in my party also said their food has gone down hill! Sigh

The food is always hot when placed in front of you. The servers are pleasant and willing to give you special attention to be sure your dining experience is delightful. This is my favorite place to eat.

Always go to this restaurant with a friend who loves this place. I've never been disappointed with any of their dishes. Have gone to the bar with friends and had just Appetizers and drinks for dinner after work. We've always have enjoyed ourselves and got full with their servings. Their Bloomin Onion is to die for, best one I've ever... More

My husband and I eat at Outback at least once a month and have always been pleased with the food and the service. They are sometimes crowded, but you can eat outside in the summer, in the bar area, or you can make a reservation.

On two separate occasions after waiting 20-30 minutes to be acknowledged or waited on, we have walked out of the bar. They weren't even busy, so it was very puzzling. We'll never go back to the Outback in El Cajon. If you want good service, try Eastbound in Lakeside. No frills, but friendly, great food and service.

Great meal and great staff. The location in Mission Valley also serves lunch now, so it is a perfect spot to eat a great meal while out shopping, or before/after a movie!
