Bugaboo Creek Steak House

A while ago, I said I wanted to compare Outback to Bugaboo Steak House. Well, I finally got to try Bugaboo for dinner and I have to say, I love it! You get more food for your money, the food tastes better and the wait-staff is much more attentive. Here's what we had:

Appetizer: We skipped a formal appetizer and asked for some bread and butter to start with. Served warm, the whole wheat bread was a perfect starter if you're not feeling hungry 
enough for a full appetizer. 
Main Course: The Portabella Bleu Cheese Filet was perfectly cooked and delicious. The bleu cheese wasn't too strong and didn't take over the flavor of the steak. For my sides, I ordered steamed veggies--which were good, but not fantastic--and a large loaded
baked potato, which to me is the match for a good steak. Bugaboo certainly met and exceeded my expectations. My friend ordered the Homestyle BBQ Meatloaf and literally was licking the plate it was so delicious. Topped with BBQ sauce, melted cheddar cheese, bacon and fried onion rings, this meatloaf is unlike any other meatloaf I've ever had. Needless to say, it was incredible!
Drink: What always goes great with a steak? BEER! Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat beer to be exact. Or, if you like a less exotic taste, a good ol' Budweiser will always do the trick.
Dessert: Bugaboo's signature Big Foot Chocolate Cookie was outstanding! Served warm, this cookie was still a little undercooked in the middle--no dry cookie here! When the ice cream melted into the cookie, it just got better and better by the bite. This dessert lasted about 4 minutes between my friend and I. I would highly recommend this dessert!

I really like Bugaboo Creek Steak House for both lunch and dinner. I think it's a great value for the amount of food they serve and the quality of the food. I won't even try to guess how many calories are in one meal here, but I will say there's enough to box up and take home for later. Bugaboo is a great place to eat when you're looking for homestlye food (or when you're too lazy to cook). Final Verdict: Bugaboo trumps Outback any day!
