After three visits, There is no doubt in my mind that the Outback is far & away a much tastier & better deal. Of course, Oxford is a captured market & Dakota's is it's only steakhouse. Our steaks were always cooked improperly (visited three times)---way overdone. When I questioned the (unpleasant) instant mashed potatoes to the amiable server, he replied 'Oh no, they're from scratch'. I asked him to check & he sheepishly returned saying I was right. A steakhouse with instant spuds---really?! My lemon drop beverage was watery with no hint of spirits.
Dakota's serves a purpose in a college town full of casual eateries. The prices reflect that captured market.
