I ate at an outback for the first time the other day.
I know--what is someone who lives in chicago doing driving to the suburbs to go to a steakhouse? Well, I had friends who were excited about it (particularily the blooming onion) and I had never been to one.
The blooming onion was pretty good and while far greasier than a comparable onion ring, I would eat it again. The steak however was not good. I wasn't too hungry and had just eaten a pile of greasy onions so I went with the 6oz filet and tried a bit of someone's ribeye. What terrible crap. I could make a better steak on a bad day after shopping at the shitty grocery store.
The service was awful too (including completely forgetting about our party besides the fact that we seemed to be the only party actually waiting). If I end up in one again, I will partake in the blooming onion but then I will get some ribs or a sandwich or something else slathered in a sauce that can't taste bad.
