When my friend Ian visits Phoenix from Cali. where he currently resides we like to dine out. Sometimes lunch, other times dinner and the Outback Steakhouse in Metro Center is one of our haunts.
Great place where the menu is vast, food is terrific or bloody brilliant as some of us like to say. The steak, sirloin, shrimp, lobster and desserts and let me not leave out the blooming onion, as well as brew are all heavenly.
To work it off we usually head to Deer Valley to play indoor badminton @ the new PHXBC. That's Ian's thing as well as mine and a true blast.
Anyway the service, the food and the overall experience at this Aussie wonder is exemplary. That's true whether Ian and I go or the family and I do. Everyone has the same positive reaction to this restaurant regardless of location. I hope they stick around forever. Love the accents as well, kinda like the Dundee character from years back with shrimp on the Barbie and Fosters.
