It just does.
Aww, I thought it was a hot porn scene.
Restaurant or car or place?
Have a bonzer day!
I've only eaten there once. I remember liking it, but I was also seven months pregnant.
For the life of me I can't remember what I ate other than a fried onion thing and something with ice cream.
I know the Strine for beeah.
Outback has been a spectacular bucket of fail here in Australia and the very few that are actually open are geared towards tourists.
Australian's don't go for fake Australian.
I rather go down to my little local pub, hand over $20 and get a rump steak that's an inch thick and so large that it's over hanging the sides of the plate - cooked anyway I liked with veges, chips and gravy.
The beer is cheap and ice cold.
The cast of local characters is endless even if they aren't allowed to bring their dogs inside.
The juke box, darts and pool tables are free and on Friday afternoons they have topless barmaids in the public bar and there's no cover charge to get in.
Ain't that the truth!
Haven't set foot in one in years.
Lone Star is worse. So bad in fact they closed up shop.
Have ate in 3 Outbacks and never had a good meal. Never again. 3 strikes your out.
haha my son worked at one and told me some of the things that went on there omg its like most places you hear about .if you knew you would just stay at home to eat
I agree. They discriminate against people. Hardcore.
The Outback closed down in Canada quite a few years ago. I ate there once and was massively disappointed in my meal. I lived and worked in OZ about 16 years ago for 6 months, so my expectations were high going in. After the meal I had there, I wasn't surprised that they tanked. If you're ever in Canada, go to The Keg Steakhouse. They are a nationwide chain and have the most amazing steaks and seafood. :smile:

Outback hasn't always been the most consistent, BUT the two BEST steaks I have EVER had were both at Outback. Been to Ruth's Chris and other pricey joints and not been near as happy. Having said that, I don't know why they'd even try going to Australia. Even Americans know there's nothing "Australian" about the Outback other than the name and the names of their dishes. Pretty gimmicky on that note.
Hooters was another fail here as well.
Hooters is gross.
Greasy women, greasy sub-standard food.
It's a bar for tits, thats it.
Here if you want see big tits in tight t-shirts just go down to the mall.
Generally, this is true, but I LOVE the Outback's food. Seriously drool worthy stuff. I've been known to drive for an hour 15 just to eat there.
That Blooming Onion(TM) thing is a gastronomical nightmare and heart-attack inducing. But back in the 90s, my ex and I ate there quite often (like once per week often). The filet mignon was really good for the money, but I shudder to think how much fat and cholesterol is in a bowl of that cream/cheese Walkabout Soup !
Their signature Outback Special(TM) tends to be sinewy and tough, the veggies are almost inevitably limp and flavorless, the salads are meh (but I'm not really a salad kinda guy), their shrimp tends to be over-seasoned and rubbery and I cannot recall ever having eaten a dessert there. The 'Ritas are good, but I've never considered them Australian (is Mexican a big deal in Oz?).
I haven't stepped inside an Outback in well over seven years, and my last experience left much to be desired. We have better places for a decent steak in FtL than that within walking distance from my apartment, and this place isn't exactly known for its cuisine.
