Been to many Outbacks, always have a great steak, full of flavour and tender, and when I was there they had an unlimited shrimp side order which was also excellent. Couldn't manage desert!

I've been to many Outbacks and this one in Mission Valley was by far the worst!!! Ordered rib steak 10 oz n salad with blue cheese added. Steak was way over cooked and not as ordered. It may have been 6 oz or less, and no more than 1/2 " thick. Didn't taste grilled and it was quite dry. Salad... More

Love the blooming onion appetizer! Ate a late lunch so enjoyed slightly reduced prices prior to the 4:00 pm dinner prices. Several good combos are offered and we loved the hamburgers and chicken/Swiss sandwich! Their house salad with homemade bleu cheese dressing and warm squaw bread are delicious!

This was our first visit to San Diego but certainly not our first to try Outback Restaurant. Outback is my GF's favorite restaurant and my GO TO restaurant to take her on her birthday. I tried the PARMESAN-HERB CRUSTED CHICKEN dish for the first time and she tried her favorite,GRILLED CHICKEN ON THE BARBIE. I was quite hungry and would... More

My husband and I had a very nice meal here though we got too much food:) we shared fries with cheese and lobster tales, it was perfect. I'm a seafood lover, so my choice was tilapia (15 bucks), my husband got a perfect steak (about 20 dollars). This, altogether with 1 beer and coke, totaled 74 dollars. Worth every cent.

After seeing the advertisement on TV over and over, I finally gave in and went to Outback to try the "Raise the Steak" special. I had the hash brown cake, stacked with the center-cut sirloin stacked with 6 large onion rings with a side of mashed potatoes. Everything was um, um good. Good service and good food. Also if you...

Have been to several Outback steakhouses and this one has been consistently good - life the salad and the desserts. The wood grilled steaks are great and the coconut shrimp is decent. Always love their bread. The kids have always enjoyed their steaks. Service can be a little slow at times but usually friendly and attentive.

This place used to have GREAT steaks at a reasonable price. The last 2-3 times I was shopping and went in for a meal I was very disappointed. Food quality has really gone down hill and its EXPENSIVE for what you get now-a-days
