Inquisitive minds want to know…..

Both here and Schmooze…..How did Outback Steakhouse work out last night…..

So………………..Remember how I told y’all about the gross salad I had there like 5 years ago. (Ok, just found the correct info. My son got married in 2013 so it was 6 years ago….)
No, that salad was inedible…..It had been frozen or their fridge was on the fritz.


I needed to pick up my parents car from the train station. But I needed a ride to the train station. Gary and I decided to meet for supper last night. Because…………Gary had a gift card to Outback  and he was afraid it would expire. (no expiration date on it so we’re good)….off we went.

Getting there about 4:45pm, the parking lot is almost empty. We were seated right away and Jack was there in an instant, and let me tell you, I have NEVER had a more adorable waiter…. He just made us BOTH smile.

We looked at the menu and I decided on Parmesan Crusted Chicken breast with Tomato/basil compote….whatever compote is. But they had me at Tomato/Basil. The side was squash/carrots/broccoli. Yuck. No.

What the HELL?? Why do ALL restaurants offer ONLY broccoli as their veggie? Or Cauliflower?? MANY of us cannot eat it. So after sticking my tongue out, Jack offered me a side salad instead. BINGO!! Works for me. But then I thought…..well crap…remember the LAST salad..

Gary got the Pork Porterhouse. Which was like ‘Is this pork or is it beef…?’Whatever it is, get it. OMG. I have NOT tasted pork so good in a LONG time. The size was like a 8 or 9oz, grilled to perfection with a crispy outside, unbelievably tender inside. Moist and juicy.

My Wood-fire grilled chicken breast topped with a Parmesan-Herb crust and a fresh tomato basil garnish… Just wow. Moist, tender, flavorful.

So the manager stopped by the table and asked how things were.

I looked him in the eye and said “Y’all redeemed yourselves tonight.” And I told him about the last experience I had 5 or 6 years ago. We chatted for awhile and then he asked if we were doing dessert because he was buying. Ok. So we ordered Carrot cake.


A little party in my mouth. YUM!!!

I’ll go back to Outback.

  1. We used to have an Outback but it closed due to lack of customers. I think we went once and there was a reason we didn’t go back. Chains can be like that, some good some awful. Funny about the broccoli though, I’m a picky vegetable person and love to see it in restaurants!

      1. I had one of their steaks on an earlier visit. That’s why I chose salad!! Didn’t think they could MESS THAT UP!!!


      2. You don’t have to beg……….I have 4 books of yours to have you autograph. One day I’ll get around to sending them to you….
