I love love love the Outback. But it has closed recently:( The nearest one is now Enfield. But if you do get a chance to go. Try the Aussie cheese fries. Bacon, cheese, fries and spicy ranch dressing!
The steaks are amazing, but so are the pork chops, chicken and ribs.
I've eaten in Outback in Canada and they are exactly the same.
There are vegetarian option available, such as pasta.
They do fantastic cocktails.
The desserts are great like chocolate thunder from down under!
Situated in the gargantuan Stevenage Leisure Park, this is one of five branches of Outback in England. It's an 'Australian' restaurant, but I have to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised at the choices of food available here. It is a steakhouse first and foremost, but there are some unique offerings available. One such item is their Bloomin' Onion. Essentially, it's a large onion, sliced and diced so that it 'blooms' like a flower. It's then dipped in their own deep fry mixture and arrives crispy and tasty. It's amazing!
I had a burger which was lovely, along with their Australian fries, many with skin still on and seasoned superbly.
I didn't try it myself, but my stepdaughter says that the coconut ice cream is something else!
It was busy when we got in there so we sat at the bar while we waited for our table. They had a fairly good selection of drinks on offer and a good number of stools - there were also two TVs above the bar showing different channels to keep you entertained.
The majority of the seating was arranged in booths which was quite nice as you could relax with a good amount of space, even though the hanging lights are WAY too close to the tables.
The walls are adorned with an array of Australian artefacts, although none seem genuine or original! It does help to create a bit of a mood though. The toilets are labelled Blokes and Sheilas too - corny but funny.
It makes a change from the usual TGI Fridays type family restaurant and if you've gone to the Leisure Park for the cinema or bowling this can be a good place to have some grub. It is mainly meat so if you're a vegetarian it may be best to avoid!
