Typical meal at Outback, but we are never disappointed. This time we tried the Alice Spring chicken which had a topping of mushrooms, bacon and cheese. Because we were sitting at the hospital with a sick relative, I got meals for several relatives. The food was ready when we arrived at take out, everything was hot and delicious.

Traveling along I-40 we stopped here late one evening for dinner. The food was really good and the service was attentive and polite. I ordered the bone-in ribeye and it was cooled perfectly and very flavorful - probably the best marbled steak for the price.

We were craving a thick, juicy, good quality burger, so we thought we'd try Outback Steakhouse. So glad we did! Hubby had the regular burger and I had the double-patty cheeseburger (gals, don't be afraid to order this; it's not that much bigger than the thick single burger he got) . I subbed in provolone cheese and asked for sautéed... More

I normally go to Outback for dinner but decided to try lunch for a change. I loved all of the new options on the menu! It's also nice to be able to get smaller portions and at cheaper prices. We arrived at 11 and were seated immediately although there was a line of people waiting for the doors to open.... More

Let me say this- I LOVE me some Outback! The food is always good. We took our family (3 kids- 8, 5, 2) and we were told there'd be a 35 min wait, and we got seated in 20 mins., so that was good! Then we ordered and the food took FOR-EVER. The server never apologized about the time and... More

I had eaten at the Outback previously and did not really enjoy it. But, we received some gift cards, so we gave it another try. Well, we were pleasantly surprised. I orders the Victoria Fillet and it was prepared to my taste. The potato soup was good as was the mashed potatoes. Our waitress, Alyssa, was very pleasant and afforded... More

My husband picked up takeout from here today and I honestly cannot believe they are sending food out like what we got. We had the onion blossom which was fine, super greasy but it usually is. He also ordered an Alice springs chicken quesadilla with no mushrooms.... Well, the only thing in the entire quesadilla was a little cheese and... More

This is a solid Outback and I've dined here at least 1/2 dozen times. Service is always good, steak cooked to order, bar area usually not packed so alot of attention by bar tender. My only complaint is the up keep of the chairs, tables ect. Furniture is showing its age. Seems like some attention should be paid on the... More

Blooming onion was good. Rest of our food was dried up stale crap. Server was an air head. Would be hard pressed to go back.

Went out with the girls. I ordered the chicken tenders. They were REALLY overcooked. And it was very difficult to get drink refills. I hadn't been in a long time. Was disappointed to find the quality and service had slipped so badly.
