Macular Degenerate: Sweet, sweet, girl - American chain restaurants are not about finding authenticity, they're about finding a marketing hook. Do you think that the Olive Garden is authentic Italian food, or Bugaboo Creek is authentic Canadian food? (I don't even know what that means, btw), or that P.F. Chang's is authentic Chinese food? or Chevy's is authentic Mexican food? This is all just marketing spin, honey. If you think any differently, you're completely delusional.


Are you trying to tell me that Long John Silver's isn't pirate food?

FTFA:many Australians are quite cheerful about their status as the funny drunk uncle of the world

There are worse reputations to have....like here, where to most of the world we're known as the wife beating drunk father with a belt.

rnatalie: "Shrimp on the Barbie" was not an invention of Outback.    She should blame her own farking country's tourism propaganda.   The phrase came from a Paul Hogan led commercial for Australian tourism which ended with him holding a lobster and offering to "Put another shrimp on the barbie for you."


It wasn't a lobster, you silly twat, it was a large prawn. It was called a "shrimp" because apparently Americans were considered too stupid at the time to accept the possibility that there might be another word out there for this particular type of crustacean.

That you don't know that everyone else knows about the Paul Hogan commercials just goes to show that the ad people thinking Americans were retarded were perhaps correct.

tacos4jesus: Rapmaster2000: As someone who spends many nights in business hotels on the edge of suburban tech parks, I don't mind Outback at all and I'm not a chain person.  They make steaks and potatoes.  You can't mess those up (to a point).  Sometimes you get off the plane and all you can think is "where is the hotel and where can we eat."  Outback is a welcome sight in that situation.

/not the best endorsement i realize

Do you also think a McRib is a good representative of ribs?  You can most certainly, by God, screw up steaks.  In fact, it's damned easy.  I rarely eat steak out at a restaurant, because for the price I can buy a really nice one and cook it the right way, rather than dropping $20-$30 for some shoe leather.

/Outback is better than Ruby Tuesdays, but that's about all the praise I can offer it
//Chain restaurants are pretty much poo


I think you're wrong.  Let me give you my technique.  I turn mine about six times and poke holes in it to make sure it's well done.  Then I top it with Hunt's ketchup.  You've got to use Hunt's to bring out the true steak flavor.  I pair it with baked tater tots and serve with a tall glass of Mountain Dew and Dewar's to wash it down.

YoOjo: Australia is where everything terrible in this world finally ends up, kind of like a grease trap for the planet. It exists solely so that anyone with any interest in good taste or decorum can observe what is common there and avoid those factors in their life. Knowing that, quite why anyone would consume anything that originates there is beyond my comprehension, that is exactly the same as choosing to punch yourself in the testicles because it was explained that it will be detrimental to you.


Wow.....it sounds a lot like Florida.

If there's one thing I can't stand, it's emigrants. Rats! Leaving the country - always the same places, isn't it? Former British colonies, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, United States of America. Rats! Emigrants, emigrating. Going over there, having sex with their women. Taking their money and skills. Emigrants.

maddermaxx: Oh, and very importantly while we're on this subject: Fosters is not an Australian Beer in any sense of the word. It's not made in Australia, it's not owned by Australians, it's not drunk by Australians, and it tastes like cat piss.

Just FYI.


Pffft, like VB is any better. My Australian buddy prefers Corona down under (and that's not saying much).

steerforth: lumiere: Dingfod: Too bad for her that Outback Steakhouse has invaded Australia. There are six locations in New South Wales, Sydney area.  http://www.outback.com/internationallocations/int_australia.aspx

I ate at the Outback Steakhouse in Sydney simply out of curiosity since my Aussie friend (from Newcastle area) had been to the US before and we both wanted to compare the two.  I've long known the Outback was American because their burgers have neither beets nor eggs nor any true Aussie touches to the food on the menu (ex. complete lack of meat pies or calling chips fries and not having more authentic fish options).  But having tasted the steak over there, I'd have to say the meat was of a better quality in Australia.

I much preferred Hog's Breath Cafe when we couldn't find a more local, non-chain restaurant to eat at (given we drove all the way from Melbourne to Cairns over the period of a month).

Tinned pineapple rings also conspicuously absent?


Can't say I tried the tinned pineapple rings.
