Avg fare but pricey. Good steaks, and nice portions. Drinks menu did not have prices. Free parking available. May not go again.

Last night my husband and I had a date night and went to dinner at the Outback Steakhouse in Plaza Bonita Mall. I had no idea what I felt like eating although I was hungry. We had a 45 minute wait but I expected that, since its a pretty popular place and we were there at dinner time about 6:00pm. What a surprise when our waiter says, "Can I make some suggestions and if you don't like it you can yell at me!". He was funny. Personable and a good waiter but the suggested salad was the best! Bleu Cheese wedge salad with Vignegrett dressing, yes both dressings on the salad. Delicious!!! Bacon bits! I couldn't get over the awesome flavors. I had 3 mini lobster tails and filet with mashed potatoes but I admit my salad was the best. I'm just sorry I didn't get a picture of the salad but I was too hungry to wait. A wonderful glass of Merlot and fresh warm bread and it was a perfect meal out with my husband.

We went to dinner with our kids and grandkids and had a great meal! The atmosphere was good and the food was excellent! The drinks and service left a bit to be desired, but on the whole, it was a good time!

Steaks are always prepared the way you like them. If you request medium rare, that is what you get; not like other restaurants where you order medium rare and get a medium steak.

We visited recently. The blooming burger was very tasty and priced well. The pork chops were a bit flavorless, but cooked right. The crab and avocado dip was nice as an appetizer. Our server was very efficient and took good care of us.
