was there tonight. debated to get this deal or not. opted not to; used a free chicken bites coupon instead. the reason i didn't get the shrimps was that this one does not come with a salad/soup whereas the regular steak does. Both come with a side.
The shrimps from outback probably from china, taste like rubber. China can make plastic rice, plastic sausages,and many other faking food products. Shrimps are not exception. Beware Chinese food products.
I also tried the shrimp, definitely not up to the quality I normally expect from Outback. But, I pretty much give a thumbs-up to just about everything else I've tried there -- and I do appreciate your posting this deal MisterCheap!
Four of us ate there about five days ago, I live in Southern California..... The shrimp here were awesome, plump and cooked great, tried all three. The filet mignonette was cooked to perfection and yes...they just kept the shrimp coming. However, the price in California is $17.99 there is a coupon on line from CouponCabin but it is not valid in California. Three out of four of us ordered the same thing and we all enjoyed the shrimp.
I love how Americans on this thread is calling another country's raising of seafood or any other seafood less inferior. Has anyone here seen how the US farm raise shrimp, seafood, or any animal for that matter? You guys are so ignorant.
I have had fish from asia, in my opinion it is inferior to wild caught US fish, same goes for the shrimp. But you are right about the farm raised stuff, I personally try to avoid it regardless of where its from.

Talk about ignorant!
I just like going to Outback so I have a chance to speak Austrian.
I'll second that the shrimp they are including is cr*p. I don't know if it's the same shrimp they use for their entrees, but if so I pity them. I don't think I have ever seen smaller shrimp. I ordered the buffalo shrimp and the scampi. The scampi was about two bites worth, and the buffalo shrimp was all breading (and no kick). It wasn't even worth the $4 upcharge versus buying the steak by itself, all-you-can-eat or not.
I ate there last Tuesday and thought it was very good. I tried the buffalo and fried.I had $14.99 sirloin and my only regret was that I shouldn't have cheaped out and ordered the larger cut of meat instead.

prastogi said: sizzler is having similar deal for 9.99$$ both chains are advertising like crazy on national TV- are shrimp so cheap now? There have been some problems with viruses with various Asian farmed shrimp regions. A necrosis virus has decimated Vietnamese breeder shrimp, and white spot virus has appeared in other areas. Astute seafood brokers may be using these issues to negotiate better prices on smaller shrimp, as farmers pull their crops early lest they be affected by these viral issues.
BTW, there have been some great prices on both wild US Gulf shrimp and US farmed catfish over the past month, and yes, they do taste much better than their farmed Asian counterparts.
