Eat This

Outback has a menu of choices that are under 600 calories. But, if you look deep enough into their menu with nutritional information, you can find dishes that are much lower in calories – like the ones listed below. [Keep in mind that the information for these healthier choices do not include the side dishes. There are tons of side dishes to choose from and, if you review their menu with the nutritional information (the link is at the bottom of the page), you can calculate what the nutrition would be with each specific side.]

  • Call this meal Victory’s Filet – because you win with the healthy nutritional makeup! Victoria’s Filet (6oz): Your signature 6oz filet comes cooked to your liking, alongside soup or a salad and one side. This meal only contains 218 calories, 0 carbs, 9g of fat, 36g of protein and 206mg of sodium.
  • Outback Special (6oz): This entree is very simple; it comes with a 6oz sirloin paired with fresh, seasonal mixed vegetables and a house salad.

Not That

You should count these dishes “out” when dining at Outback Steakhouse.
