Get your Free Outback steak

Outback is giving away a million free steaks. All you have to do is go to this website and fill in some basic contact info. It is only a 6oz steak, but a free steak is a free steak.

we have an outback less than two miles from us. but the only free steak i am eligible for is in a distant town 35 miles away. i guess the outback restaurant near us is not a participant in this giveaway. :(

Smart arse. We can't get free steak because our beef is tastier.

Outback is not bad at all. The prices are reasonable and the food is pretty good for a chain.

Good? That's always a matter of opinion, of course.

Personally, I find their food way too salty. Last couple times I was there, it was someone else's choice. I always swear I'll never go back. Even the "low calorie" grilled tilapia & steamed veggie meal has over 2000 mg of salt.

clearly, outback neglected to do the necessary preliminary preparatory supply work before launching their promotion. remember when oprah and kfc gave away over a million orders of baked chicken for free?

there is only one chain restaurant where i did not have a bad experience--pargos (blackened halibut to die for) until they finally closed their doors. that disappointed me. should not be so complicated, but i never met a steakhouse yet that excelled.

yes, if you don't use the coupon your blood pressure will not be affected.

2k of salt? how bad does your product have to be to put that much salt on it?

the nearest available offer is about a 25 minute drive away from me. it ain't worth the hike, in gas or bp.

well, i see that outback steak house is running another promotion. this one came in the mail, offering a free 6oz. sirloin steak w/side order, to be redeemed at your local outback establishment. let's hope they are better prepared for this promotion than the last one, and that they "get" the desirability of including our canadian outbackers this time!! :) (anyone want mine? lmk)

Every Outback in my area was closed down about a year or two ago. And I loved the place. It was like a discount steakhouse.

How could you go wrong?

Some years ago I had asked my brother who lived in another state for a restaurant recommendation, and he said Outback was good. I either didn't hear him right or just messed it up, but told my husband we should go to Down Under. We did find a hole-in-the-wall burger joint called Down Under and were mystified as to why my brother would recommend it. Found out a couple of years later what the problem had been. I've had a couple of memorable (in a good way) Outback steak dinners, but also a couple of disappointments. Depends on the location.

I've never been to one, I have heard a lot of bad reviews. Although they apparently have good blooming onions.
