Outback Steakhouse's Menu Features Three New Towering Dishes

— September 22, 2016 — Lifestyle
Outback Steakhouse is literally raising the bar when it comes to super-sized meals with the addition of three new towering dishes. Not only is the chain adding to its most popular entrees, but it is even topping up its desserts.

The new towering dishes at Outback Steakhouse include the Towering Beer-Battered Onion Ring Filet, which consists of beer-battered onion rings piled on top of a seared filet sitting on a crispy hash brown cake. The other new entree is the Towering Grilled Shrimp On The Barbie Filet, which features the same hash brown and seared filet base, topped with a tower of grilled shrimp. To keep the sky-high theme going, the chain is also offering a Huge Chocolate Cake, which features six extra-thick layers of chocolate cake and a drizzle of sweet raspberry sauce.
