Outback Steakhouse Voted #1 Steak for Second Consecutive Year

Outback Steakhouse has been voted number one Best Steak in the 2010 Zagat National Restaurant Chain Survey.

The winners were announced live on NBC’s TODAY Show, with the full results released on ZAGAT.com. Over 6,500 diners participated in this survey, which included 136 of the nation’s largest restaurant chains. The survey participants eat at chain restaurants an average of 10.7 times per month.

“We are honored to be recognized once again by our customers who look to Zagat as their primary resource to the best of the best in dining options,” says Outback Steakhouse President Jeff Smith. “We want to thank our many customers across the country for voting us as the top steak among restaurant chains in America. All of our Outbackers work hard to provide the best service and delicious crave-able dishes made fresh to order and just the way our customers like it.”

“We are also thrilled to be recognized in Zagat’s Best Value category this year,” Smith adds. “At Outback Steakhouse we have an ongoing commitment to providing our customers with fresh, quality food at accessible price points.”

For more than 20 years Outback has been dedicated to providing its customers with only the finest cuts of choice steaks that have gone through a proprietary aging process to ensure unrivaled taste and tenderness.

“Our quality is a direct result of the extra steps we take in sourcing, preparing and cooking all our menu items,” says Outback Steakhouse Vice President of Research and Development Dave Ellis. “All of our beef is grain fed, aged to perfection, hand trimmed and then cooked exactly how our customers order it in our restaurants.”
