Never had a bad experience at the Outback-Abilene. Food always fresh and delicious. Service is always excellent. Local owner is usually out on the floor checking on customers and making sure things are running properly.

Hubby took me here for Mothers Day. Seated us right away which was nice. Food was great, bloomin onion, salad, baked potato and sirloin strip done perfect. Food was hot which is a plus for us. Would eat here again.
