The prime rib looked like worth dying for but worth the first cut and bite, I knew that it would take a lot of chewing. To say it was a disappointment would be an understatement. It was most unusual.

Outback behind Plaza Bonita is always a good choice. The staff is really friendly and they always have a table right away. The steak is sooo good but prices can be a little high for some stuff. Anyways, the bar area is very comfortable.

Always tasty and great service. Beef is dry aged and cooked to perfection. Not nearly as expensive as other 'higher end' steak houses serving the same cuts.

Can depend on Outback for a good steak regardless of location. Wedge salad was huge. Tried the new garlic medallions which were tender and delicious. Bread as always was hot and fresh.

Good food with average service. Gets pretty busy and a little pricey because the food pricing is a bit high for this kind of joint. Good 3 stars but no more for us.

Every year, Outback shows their appreciation for Veterans by giving away a bloomin onion and a large drink. This is the only restaurant that I know of that provides the service without the requirement of a "dine in only"! Just order "to go", no questions...More
