Restaurants are everywhere, these days. But finding the good restaurants can be very vexing. In this article I am going to review one of the better ones, in my opinion, the Outback Steakhouse.
The Outback Steakhouse is a restaurant that serves dishes with an Australian influence. The food ranges from burgers, steaks, Chicken on the Barbie, lamb; etc. You definitely have an assortment of choices. They also offer appetizers, soups and salads, desserts, alcoholic beverages; etc. Thus far, my favorite dishes are the spinach dip appetizer and the lamb chops. The spinach dip comes with toasted rye bread that you use for dipping; the meal itself always comes with a full loaf of rye bread and some butter.
Prices are not too bad, either. The steaks and the lamb are albeit pricier than some of the other food, but it’s still not that expensive. Steaks range from twelve to twenty dollars, and the lamb is around twenty one bucks. However, you can easily find a burger for ten bucks or so. The food really is affordable.
What about the atmosphere, you ask? Well, the one that I go to has a casual atmosphere that is filled with people of all ages. You’re never too young or too old to eat at the Outback Steakhouse. There are television sets for your viewing pleasure, as well. The restaurant itself is very clean and well kept. Yes, there is albeit of an Australian theme throughout the restaurant. For example, the restaurant that I dine at has a stuffed alligator hanging on the wall. It’s definitely an interesting bit of decor.
The Outback Steakhouse can become quite crowded, especially at night. The hours of operation are usually late in the day, with the exception being the weekend. Monday through Thursday the hours of operation are 4 to 10:30, Friday is 4 to 11:30, Saturday is 3:30 to 11:30, and on Sunday it’s 12 to 9:30. I choose to go early on Sunday because the time is better for me and there seems to be fewer people around. Of course, expect more of a crowd on holidays such as Father’s Day. I recently dined on one such holiday, and the line was quite long.
The Outback Steakhouse is an affordable and fun place to eat. Even with all of the other competition out there, the Outback Steakhouse stands out above them. Try the spinach dip for an appetizer, you’ll be glad you did.
