I was extremely ill when I came to this restaurant and did not eat very much of my order. However, what I ordered came out correctly and the taste was what I expected. My server was a perfectly lovely young woman and understanding of the fact I was not doing well. I went midweek and so it was not very... More

My wife and I went to the Outback Steakhouse in El Cajon today and had a good time. Months ago Outback had cancelled their Happy Hour and had not communicated well either on line or at the restaurant that Happy Hour had only been cancelled on Saturday and Sunday's. To our surprise our server Colette asked us if we wanted... More

The only complaint I have it the length of time it takes to be seated :( BUT it is always worth the wait. Never disappointed with the food, taste or quantity, or with the service. As a senior citizen I feel, I was treated with respect while waiting, ordering, being served and during our meal. Boxes to take home left... More

Nice servers and reliably good but not great food. That blooming onion is really a grease bomb but it tastes good! I wish the restaurant were not so noisy however.

Never had a bad steak. I always get a fillet. This is the location we usually visit. Service is usually great. Can't beat the steaks at Outback. I love the carrots, sweet potato, baked potato soup, salad with ranch. The Sydney's Sinful Sundae is a favorite if they make it right. The brownie is a good gluten free option if... More

The food was actually really good.The price was too high for what you get.Expensive food with a family dining feel.Noisy, no atmosphere.They put out great sounding deals but when your plate is sitting in front of you, its lacking.Big cool knives but tiny steaks!

We have visited a number of Outback restaurants. The food is generally consistent. This is a good location, with good service. There are excellent menu choices and the prices very reasonable. Usually crowded, so come early.

Outback Steakhouse is a predictably good chain restaurant. The El Cajon location has an effective and friendly staff and my family likes to eat here. I'm hooked on those deliciously greasy bloomin' onions. I recommend this place for a reasonably priced, predictably good fun meal for the family.

Thank Joe G
