Food has really gone downhill at Outback. This used to be our go-to restaurant in Denton for "special" occasions, i.e. birthdays, holidays, after a great win in sports, etc. The steak is no longer the quality steak it used to be. Nine times out of ten, our steak (there are 4 of us eating it at one time, so we can compare all 4 at one time and know that it isn't just ONE out of the 4) will have a gristle line that runs through the entire steak. The steaks seem to get smaller and thicker as the years roll by and they are completely flavorless. Forget about asking for a medium Rare steak. It will be medium...rest assured. The sauteed green beans are barely cooked anymore and Sunday when we were there last, they were completely raw, actually still cold in the center. Staff is always friendly, but seems to be stretched thin anymore. You can ask for something, maybe extra butter or sauce and be surprised if you receive it before the end of your meal or more than halfway through. We have even ordered two sides and received only one with the entree with the promise that the second side is "on its way", only to have it delivered once the meal is more than 3/4 gone and the extra side is eaten mostly on its own instead of with the actual entree the way you had dreamt. The bread is almost always still cold in the center (we understand they are frozen loaves, but bake them thoroughly, please) and the butter that comes with the bread is generally straight from the refrigerator, so too hard to spread on cold bread. I am not sure if this is a chain wide deal or just our local operation, but it is enough for us to say, "Let's drive the extra 30 minutes to Logan's in Lewisville." now when we have a "special" occasion.
