For fans of tender steaks, giant burgers and steaming oven potatoes the Outback Steakhouse is a culinary paradise. The success story of this restaurant chain started in Tampa, Florida. Today, Outback Steakhouse restaurants can be found in many US cities such as Las Vegas, New York and Chicago, as well as 23 other countries. The Sunshine State has its fair share of branches, for example in Northeast Cape Coral, right next to Pine Island Road.
One glance at the menu is enough to see: Carnivors have come to the right place. A signature dish at the Outback Steakhouse is the Victorias Filet Mignon made from high-quality beef, cooked to perfection and so tender that you do not even need a knife. Or how about the beautifully marbled, flavourful Ribeye? The restaurant is also famous for aromatic Sirloins and thick Porterhouse Steaks of the highest quality. If you want to have steak with seafood like lobster and shrimps, the Outback´s Surf and Turf dishes are perfect for you. Other popular choices include:
- Grilled chicken with Swiss Cheese and bacon
- generously topped burgers with premium beef
- pork tenderloins glazed with a caramel-mustard-sauce
- shrimp pasta with creamy parmesan sauce
- grilled salmon garnished with bacon and seasonal vegetables
The entrees come with a variety of sides such as baked potatoes with sour cream and molten cheese, mashed and sweet potatoes, as well as classic French Fries. Of course, you can also order salads, raw and healthy or topped with bacon and different sorts of cheese.
The Outback Steakhouse is widely known for its skillfully carved Blooming Onion– a true work of kitchen art that is baked in crispy dough and served with spicy mayonnaise-horseradish sauce.
Before it is time for the main course, you absolutely must try the restaurant’s free homemade honey-oat-bread with whipped butter – a main reason for guests to keep coming back. The Outback Steakhouse is also famous for their Margaritas, a perfect appetizer to put you in the mood for your entree.
Do not forget to leave some room for dessert: The Outback Steakhouse serves irresistible delicacies like New York chocolate cheesecake, warm caramel cookies and juicy carrot cake glazed with vanilla cream cheese.
