Save money on dinner or lunch for two at Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse jokingly suggests that its deals must mean you're on the nice list--does that mean the cow was on the naughty list? Regardless of the answer, you can save money on lunch or dinner at Outback.

The first coupon is for $5 off two dinner entrees. This deal expires December 20. It is valid for both dine-in and Curbside Take Away. There is a limit of one coupon per table per visit, and it can not be combined with other coupons or discounts. If you can't scrounge up a second person, the coupon is also good for $2.50 off one dinner entree.

The second coupon is for $4 off two lunch entrees. This deal expires January 3, 2014. It is valid for both dine-in and Curbside Take Away. There is a limit of one coupon per table per visit, and it can not be combined with other coupons or discounts. Like the first deal, it's friendly to those dining solo--you can use it for $2 off one lunch entree.

Are the deals worth it? In my opinion, any deal at Outback is worth it. Their steaks are fantastic, and the portion sizes are generous. You'll definitely get your money's worth. I recommend the Classic Outback Special or the Sirloin with Choice of Shrimp. For sides, I recommend the Caesar Salad or the Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

It's worth noting that Outback Steakhouse is not known for its healthy options--according to Wikipedia they cook everything in beef tallow. That's probably why the food tastes so bloomin' good. That said, there are healthy options available. These include the 6-Ounce Sirloin, the Grilled Chicken on the Barbie, the Perfectly Grilled Salmon, the Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie, the Crab and Avocado Stack, the Asian Sesame Salad (with chicken or ahi tuna), the Simply Grilled Mahi, and, believe it or not, the Cake Pops. Each of these dishes is under 600 calories.

Outback Steakhouse's best-kept secret is the French Onion Soup. I used to work for a chili restaurant in the same strip mall as an Outback, and after working the closing shift would go over to Outback, order the French Onion Soup and eat it along with the free bread. This made a good, warm "comfort food" meal, which with alcoholic beverage and tip was less than $10. Not a bad deal.

Outback Steakhouse is owned by Bloomin' Brands, Inc., which was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida. Bloomin' Brands, Inc., is a company of restaurants that owns and operates Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Roy's Restaurant and Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. Outback Steakhouse is an Australian-themed steakhouse, although they have an excellent selection of chicken, seafood and even a pasta. And how can we forget the famous heart attack on a plate known as the Bloomin' Onion?

If you're a beef fan, Outback is the place to go, and the coupons, which are available on Outback's web site, only sweeten the deal on a meal.
