Not Worth it – Outback Steakhouse is a bad steakhouse plain and simple. The steaks are so hard that they become inedible. The onion soup is tasteless and doesn't even seem baked. The prices are almost as high as House of Prime Rib too which is btw excellent.
Save your money! – I went to the Outback in Daly City expecting something great. I ordered a prime rib that was dry and tasteless. I like a nice, carmelized, tender piece of meat, but what I got was a hard, tooth flossing chunk of I-don't-know-what. The hot wings were good, but I can get the same thing from Dominoes pizza. The service is lacking as well. I know it's casual dining, but I don't want my waitress sliding over into the booth to sit with me as she's taking my order. The quality of food is acceptable if you're paying $2.99 at a Vegas dive, but for a "top 10" restaurant? Forget it. I'll stick to Kincaids in Burlingame. The service there is horrible, but at least I can get a tremendous tasting piece of meat there.
you're kidding, right? – I want to know what heathens would vote
a two bit chain restaraunt into the top 10
steak houses in san francisco!?
that's just laughable.
I feel ashamed that what may as well
be a pepsi co. steak chain is what my city
chose to represent it in the top ten list.
especially above a classic such as ruth's.
Yadda, yadda – I have always gotten a good experience when going to Outback... It is very popular (no matter what day of the week) so you do wait a bit but that's ok. And the food is great (and now everyone is trying to duplicate the bloomin onion) ...and You don't walk out hungry!
Meat was tender but no taste – My wife and I felt the need for a steak so we decide to try out Outback. I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants, but I thought that a steak house would be able to serve a good tasty, tender steak, but was I wrong. Okay the steak was tender, but there was absolutely no taste in the meat. When that is said the bread and the blooming onion was excellent. For the money we paid for the meal Im rating it as really bad value for the money.
Can you say "suck"? – First of all, there isn't even an Outback in San Francisco. Secondly, Outback sucks. There's no other way of explaining it. It's like the "McDonald's" of the steak world. The food is second rate, poorly prepared, and lack-luster in presentation. San Francisco doesn't have room for places like Lyon's, Applebee's, Carrow's, Waffle House, Sizzler, Hungry Hunter, Black Angus, El Torito, or Outback. What ever happened to tradition? Have we forgotten about Original Joe's, John's Grill, Tadich Grill, Kuleto's, Houston's, and even The Sharp Park Golf Course in Pacifica?
Everything great EXCEPT the steak! – My experience tonight was great EXCEPT for the steak. Outback's "Bloomin' Onion" is the yardstick by which all similar fried onion concoctions should be done. Crispy, not-greasy, and with a delicious tangy sauce! Their creamy onion soup is similarly awesome. And I give a thumbs up to my garlic mashed potatoes. Even the service was quite pleasant and efficient. But the steaks? Solidly mediocre. If I were paying $8.99 at a Family Restaurant sort of place, I'd be smiling, but $12.99 and up? Unacceptable. I ordered the Outback Special 9 ounce steak. It was seasoned okay, though a bit salty, and the actual cut was a bit on the gristly side. What surprises me, though, is that despite my experience and the generally negative comments here, the place was still absolutely packed. We waited more than an hour to be seated! Surely there must be better restaurants in Daly City?!?
Blah... – In my opioion the Outback Steak House is...well, blah. It is not horrible, but not the best ever. I would choose Black Angus over The Outback anyday!
PuuhLease – With all the great restaurants in San Francisco the Outback does not even rank. When I lived in the Midwest, sorry to offend anyone, it was near the top, but out here NO WAY.
Not worth the wait. – I could not wait to try Outback Steakhouse. I have heard of their reputation for a few years & one finally came to my area. The "wait" was over 2 hours all day long for the first few months. Some of my friends had tried it before I had the chance, & all were disappointed. I still ventured out one night for a dining steak experience that I would not forget. The service was slow & the food was awful. Considernig the hype following this restaurant, I did not allow the one dining experience to label the franchise. I was on vacation & chose another location. The same result came out of my dining experience. Both times I ordered high priced steaks & both were dry with no taste. I have never, ever had worse steaks at a restaurant that features steaks. Outback will be bankrupt within 10 years....bye, bye.
