Because we had a coupin we shuffled over to Outback this weekend to brave a very, very long wait for very, very average food.

Even though we called ahead it was still a 50 minute for that list and it was 65-75 for if you walked in off the street without calling ahead.

This Outback is small on the inside in terms of actual seats.

The bar area is a decent size and they do have tables around the bar that are first come/first serve but with so many people hanging out in the foyer you couldn't have got to that area if you would have screamed "Fire!".

As for the food itself things were very....average.

The brown bread that was brought out was OK although I think it's suppose to be warm, and it wasn't, but the butter that came with it was very warm and very melted.

We opted for the Chicken on the Barbie which is nothing more than a small piece of chicken with an equally small cup of BBQ sauce. The chicken itself was alright but the BBQ sauce lacked any flavor nor did it have any bite.

The accompanying baked potato was also alright except for the skin being coated in too much salt.

The other entree was the Twin Lobster Tails and they were also alright even though they were very small in size and the amount of butter given with them was laughable at best and stupid at worst.

The service was very good considering how busy everything was. We didn't wait long at all for the food once the order was placed and drink refills were no problem at all.

Overall it was a good meal even though this place is about as much of a steakhouse as a Texas Roadhouse or a Longhorn is.

It should be thought of more as Outback "bland, boring, and cheesy chain restaurant that also happens to serve steak" Restaurant.
