Reliably decent food and service at ok prices!

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.

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

My husband and I decided to go this restaurant for an evening meal. Let me tell you. .The young lady "Taylor " who took our order was very professional, courteous and efficient. She was very knowledgeable about the choices available. We eat out at least two to three times a month and are choosy about where we go. It is... More

We eat here every time we come in town. Good to see Ashley and several others. Came looking for the manager Dwayne and he is gone but was glad to be greeted well by new manager Curtis. Kim was our waitress and made the experience fun. Thank you Outback Family.

My husband and I ordered 2 different steaks here and they were both way over cooked. Mine was not even edible, it was so tough and dry. My husband's was only slightly better. He ordered sauteed mushrooms to go with his steak and they tasted rotten. Mine came with coconut shrimp and they were good but they dipping sauce was... More

The wait staff was great and the crab stuffed mushrooms with the lemon sauce was fantastic. The two steaks we ordered were seasoned nicely but cooked VERY poorly. My medium well NY strip steak was served rare! It wasn't even warm in the thicker parts. We were very disappointed.

There are lots of choices in town for steaks. But we chose to spend our steak money with Dwayne. He always makes you feel like you are eating at his house. It's a nice place and always good food. A good crew of employees. Like I said before, lots of nice steak places in town, we chose here for the... More
