Really? I think Outback is pretty reasonably priced, and I can't say I ever really get anything there that isn't cooked fantastic. And that blooming onion...omg yum yum and yum. lol

I think everything is regional and Claim jumper disappointed me the last time I went as well.

Outback here is over priced for what you get. I can get better, far bigger walla walla-based blooming onions at our local state fair.

Now, really really good steak, ya go to Ruth Chris.

For me, it isn't so much the bloomin onion as it is the sauce outback gives you with it. So far I have not found anything half as good anywhere else, and the onion without the sauce is boring. lol

And believe it or not, I am not a real fan of Ruth Chris. It's good steak, but for the price, I can make one at home far better. I am not a fan of any ala carte steak houses where you buy it all separately...and mostly because the food itself is not all that knock out. I can cook my own mashed potatos, asparagus and steak much better that what I've found in Ruth Chris and the other place locally that is similar, called Morton's.

Aye, I've only been to Ruth Chris once, for a cigar event before local smoking laws were changed and the event no longer occurs.

I tend to favor going to a classic meat market and getting a good cut of steak and grilling it to rare-medium rare and serving it with mashed potatoes, or french fries, etc....

As to the Blooming onion, I've always had them with classic Buttermilk Ranch dressing, which is pretty easy to come by.

I went to Ruth Chris for my parents 50th. Brother was paying, so I got the steak/lobster. Nothing special about the steak, but the lobster was good. Actually, I have never had a bad lobster.

Speaking of lobster, I had a whole one in Hawaii. It came with a small cup of au gratin potatoes. I soon found out why. A lot to eat and the claws were like eating a fork full of butter.

Best lobster I have ever had was on a little beach hotel just north of Port Au Prince Haiti in 1998, it was freshly caught split down the middle and grilled over driftwood with butter and some local spices. Been trying to recreate that meal ever since.

The best steak I've ever had was in Kauai. Went back the next night and they had the place covered for some routine pest elimination. Couldn't find another good steak the rest of the trip.

Sounds like the health department heard about the special ingredients in the steak and closed the place or maybe it was some form of Hawaiian herb?
