    Outback Steakhouse? I guess I’m going to have to get some to go to see what it tastes like but really? Mac’s 1 and Brophy’s 2 if they would have been there I’m sure but I’ll give Outback the benefit of the doubt and try it I guess.

    I am shocked that they won. The food at Outback is so heavily salted, processed, dreadful. I will actually make a trip just for a cup of chowder, as I am really curious and still….shocked. I’ll bet the chowder is reheated in restaurant, shipped in from the cooperate commissary kitchen. “no rules, just right”, whatever that is supposed to mean.

      Surprisingly looking into it I see mostly rave reviews about it on the internet…? So the proof is in the pudding…or the chowder I guess so I’m game to try it…

    How I miss the New England Clam Chowder at Bray’s 101. Creamy, loads of clams, onions, celery, not a lot of potatoes. And I think they must have added a lot of Paprika, as the chowder was sort of pinkish.
    In the here and now…chowder at Harry’s is really good.

    You would be very surprised to taste how good the clam chowder at Outback is. For years my husband has been saying it is the best he tasted in town. I finally tried it &it was loaded with clams, not just big pieces of potato. I think it definitely has the daily quotion of sodium, maybe that’s what makes the flavor so good. They usually run out of this pretty quickly on the nights it is offered, so that can be a disappointment.
