We had the lunch combo and seemed that there was something missing. Choice of side was skimpy and the plate was bare. Best was unlimited soft drink. Never going back.

I can't say I had the worst meal of my life, so let's call it the worst meal in the last 20 years. Outback STEAKHOUSE. One would expect a great steak, right? A great ribeye with that marbling of fat. Get it on the bone and it's even better. I ordered one they highlighted on their website at $28 (not... More

My friend and I came for lunch today and although she ordered the fish and baked potato and my burger and fries were fine; much better than the chicken quesadilla sans the chicken.

Arriving in Mesa on Mother's Day, we figured every restaurant would be busy and this Outback was full! But we were seated right away and our waitress greeted us immediately. Our orders were taken in a timely manner and our food was brought to us nice and hot. No complaints here. Everything tasted good and service was great. We would... More

This Outback is the worst one of this franchise that we have visited. Service and food were just ok. We were invited to go there for the free Bloomin Onion, resulting from Kevin Harvick's top ten finish on Sunday. The onion was really bad. We have had the Bloomin Onion at other locations, and enjoyed it. Seriously, I have had... More

It was a busy Saturday night at 6:00 when we put our names in and were told it would be about a 30 minute wait. We sat at the bar and had a decent cocktail and the gals were very nice to us who made and served the drinks. We were with our friends and were seated about 45 minutes... More

Yet once again fe!!ow diners, kudos to the Outback Steakhouse chain. Agreed, it is not Dominick's, City Hall or Maestro's. But dollar for dollar, "tuff" to beat.
