The chopped baker with beef is awesome. I was in town for two weeks and ate there 3 times. I wanted to try the burgers because I was told they are great but I just couldn't get my fill on the baker.More

reddy82899, the Chop Baker is quite addictive! You could mix it up a bit and try the Sweet Potato version...but you're heard correctly, we do have good burgers, locally ground beef, pressed fresh daily...no frozen patties here! We look forward to your next visit to...More

Their brisket is always dry, dry, dry. The ribs are good when they are good but it's hit or miss. It's never inedible, I guess, and I've had worse....More

Tom M, from your description does not paint the picture of the Outlaw's standard of service or food that we expect each of our guests to receive. We cannot tell you enough how disappointed we are in ourselves for not only letting you down once,...More

Traveling to Baton Rouge brought us to Alexandria at lunchtime. We gave Outlaws a try and were not disappointed. I had the combo plate, brisket and smoked chicken. The chicken was PERFECT! Nice smoke, very moist, and we'll seasoned. The brisket... not so much. It...More

Read the tripadvisor reviews and decided to eat here. The sliced beef was very good and the portions were very generous. The service was a little slow and it seemed that the individuals in the food prep area were disorganized.More

The sliced brisket was dry and hard to chew. Two out of three sauce dispensers were empty, sauce all over area. Sides had little flavor. If I wanted BBQ this bad, I'd cook it myself.More

Love the Australian vibe. The onion petals and sauces were also great. Unfortunately the steak, although cooked as I wanted it, was a little sinuous.More

Circus-G, We think that you might have been reviewing Outback Steakhouse rather and Outlaw's Barbecue. We certainly don't have an Australian vibe, serve steaks or have onion petals. What we do have at Outlaw's Barbecue is a laid-back, homestyle vibe, great brisket, ribs and pork...More

Atmosphere is kinda sad. Maybe it's the barn-like sitting area? The food is good and always the same. Counter service folks know what to ask to get your order right.More
