Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor. – In Short
Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff. Besides more than a half-dozen cuts of steak, diners can pick from large-portioned entrees like ribs, chops and shrimp or chicken "on the barbie." The Bloomin' Onion, a large onion dipped in batter and deep-fried, is an appetizer with a following.
I agree that Outback is a great restaurant. The service is always top notch, and friendly. However, I think the best Outback in Kansas City is the one located at Quivira and 95th street. You may have to wait a bit, but there food is great.
New Zealand Lamb – Simply put, Outback's New Zealand lamb entre is the best dish on the planet in my humble opionion. There is no need to eat anywhere else or order anything else because nothing else compares to this incredible dish!!
BEST STEAK.. OUTBACK? – Umm.. No. This is a hugh mistake to put a chain restaurant in this catagory. Kansas City is known for their steaks. The beef in the Midwest is unsurpassed. Their are many other Steak Houses in KC that deserve this more than Outback. Granted this is a very nice place to eat. The service is wonderful. The atmosphere is very nice as well. The steaks are even really good. But not the best in KC.
Too Far North – Having only dined at the Outback at the Chouteau exit off of I-35, at the fabulous Target strip mall, I can only comment that this was good but not worth the ticket price. The service wasn't up to par either.
I wasn't explained about the rub they use on their steaks and found it annoying and distracted from the rib eye's flavor. My children enjoyed their chicken, but they enjoy anything. Again, another chain, although better than Longhorn, and chain mentality, i.e. mess hall economics posing as a higher level of dining.
have these people been to KC? – To say that Outback is one of the best steak houses in Kansas City is to say that anyone can make Barbeque better than Jack Stacks...if you are from KC you know better than to try and beat our barbeque. Obviously these people didnt try too hard to find a good steak house because I can get an outback steak in almost all 50 steaks, but in KC, you shouldnt go to a national chain to get a good steak, you should look in your back yard to find something better.
yummy in my tummy – This is some of the best steak I have had for the money. I always enjoy Outback they never let me down.
What a Steak??? – I was very disappointed in the steak I had- tough, not prepared to order, very little taste. As a steak house it does not compete with many of the others in KC. It was not high price, but the quality was below the value. I would not recommend it.
Where's the Cook? – Maybe the cook was sick that day, but the steak was terrible. Rare in the middle and BURNT on the outside. It was nothing that I had asked for, nor expected. I will never order steak from Outback again.
Outback is pootsie – There is no way that Outback is one of the top 10 steaks in Kansas City. The meat quality is poor and badly seasoned. Way too much pepper is used to season and on the fries there is too much salt. There is no atmosphere except blue collar idiots with no palete for good steak. I can't believe J Gilberts is behind outback that is heresy.
