Tasty Food

Enjoyed a nice business meal here. Love that Outback Special and the Bloomin Onion. Steak was cooked perfectly and sides very tasty. Service was little slow this night.

After a long flight from the UK to Chicago we stopped our first night in the US just up the road from the Outback. We went in because we recognised the "brand" and were not disappointed. Friendly staff, good food and beer; after a long day it was perfect. Cooked exactly right.

Went for dinner to one of our favorite chain restaurants. As expected, it was busy. But we were seated after few minutes of waiting. Our server was friendly. Our appetizer came right away, our drinks came later. Our food was from the lite menu, chicken on the Barbie and steak sirloin. We liked them very much. The only thing was... More

The food was good but ran out of baked potatoes during dinner hour - 5 pm! It was Family Weekend at ISU so I would think they would have been more prepared.

It was the 26th of August, 2015 and my husband and I were absolutely exhausted because we had been loading a truck to move our things to Missouri. We both looked at each other and said, "we need a good meal Outback here we come." Needless to say the Ribeye steaks were good and cooked the way we liked them... More

Have been here a few times and wife and I are occasionally fond of just buying a bunch of their cheese fries for carry-out and pigging out at home. That's a pretty good way of it. We did a sit-down dinner there yesterday and everyone enjoyed their steaks - two big prime ribs and a big filet. No complaints on... More

Some of the foods are unique to their chain and are delicious and unique, but others are poorly cooked and not real tasty. Service has been below average a few times we were there and only average on other occasions.

Over the years I have been here many times but this time the steak was OK only. The service was good.

Came for dinner on a friday after a long work week. Ordered the 12 oz ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes and the baked potato soup. I always get my steak medium and it didn't disappoint as it tasted great. It melted in my mouth plus the potatoes were great as well. The bread they serve before the main course is... More

I usually eat here once a week and have been for several months I love their prime rib once they got their act together when I first moved to BLM-NM the food was not that great. They finally got it right and started making it correctly. Well the other night I went in and the cook/manager knows how I like... More
