The ambiance at Outback Grill is one of the most notable aspects about your dining experience. There is a Safari theme to the whole restaurant - in fact, the waiters and waitresses are donned in Safari-themed costumes as well! You can also find several emblems of animals commonly found in a wildlife safari and the most notable crashed jetplane with the pilot still hanging off of the plane! I admit, that was one of the things that piqued my curiosity when this restaurant just opened.
The food, however, is the star of this dining experience. Since we were dining as a large group when we went to Outback Grill, we decided to go for one of their Family Set menu. For a set that is worth P1,299, we got the following items: Chuck Wagon Ribs, Chopseuy, Kinilaw, Pork Sinigang, Unlimited Rice, and a pitcher of cola. This set is good for about 6-7 persons! Great deal, right? In fact, we were unable to finish all of it despite the fact that there were about 7 of us! The best part of this set is the Chuck Wagon Ribs. When I had my first bite, I was quickly reminded of Lyndon's ribs. Tender meat that is very well seasoned. In fact, the meat is so tender that you can use the fork to cut through it!
We also got to witness the much talked about fire dancing exhibition during our visit to Outback Grill. I believe the fire dancing is available only on Fridays and weekends; hence, make sure to visit around those days if you want to get live entertainment while enjoying your meal. But that's not all - the waiters and other staffs at the restaurant also treated the customers to a dancing routine. They performed about 2-3 songs that truly helped to liven up the atmosphere! In fact, some of the customers joined in on the dance! It's a lot of fun to experience that, which is truly what sets them apart from other BBQ and grill restaurants in the city!
Outback Grill is located along Bacaca Road, Garcia Heights, Davao City.
