Yeah, went out to the one in Rock Hill tonight. There was actually a traffic backup to get in. Guy came out and said it was a 2 hour wait and they were out of onions.

Did not stick around.

Got mine at the Outback on Two Notch. Put my name in and they said it was a hour and a half wait. As soon as we did that 4 seats opened at the bar. WOOHOO! We only waited like 5 minutes!

I overheard a server asking for a manager to go speak to one of their tables. Someone wanted to talk to a manager because they thought it was a free bloomin onion PER PERSON and were pissed it wasn't. JESUS, PEOPLE!

My time is worth money and no way in hell do I wait anything longer than 1 hour at an Outback for dinner...for a $6 appetizer I can make at home for under $1.

Unless you are a vegan who grows his own food using seeds locally purchased and does not use any pesticides or fertilizers from an industrial origin, and your water is rainwater gathered in a self-built irrigation trough, and you do not own a television, vehicle, or other entertainment apparatus leading to a sedentary lifestyle, you should not lecture people about obesity and diet.

The only thing worse than being lectured about one's diet is to be lectured by a person who is sitting at a desk typing on a computer.

Jeez it is delicious, but I'd feel pretty sick if I ate an entire bloomin' onion by myself.

A lot of people feel the need to abuse the system when something is free.

Wife and I went to the one in Rock Hill last night. Got there around 6:30 it was a 2 hour 45 minute wait. We walked up to the bar (first come first serve) and sat down at the bar after waiting maybe 15 minutes.

Our server behind the bar said they were out of onions. We ordered anyway, there was a couple beside us that had already eaten, however they still had an onion coming to them. We had struck up a conversation with them and when they finally got their onion they did not want it and gave it to us.

Also, our server told us they were only expecting to give about 20 to 30 onions away. She said they gave away 400 and that the cooks started cheering when they made the last one.

Default Re: OB Bloomin' Onion

So for the people who went out and waited 15 min., or 2 hrs, for the $7 onion how much did you spend?

Not judging, just curious..

I am personally shocked at the turnout I have heard about for this free onion

I hope y'all left a decent tip, but I doubt it.

Outback is the joke.

Was eating at an Outback a couple years ago and my grandfather literally had a heart attack during the meal. I asked the manager for a defibrillator but there was not one in sight. What kind of restaurant sells deep fried bloomin onions and doesn't keep a defibrillator on hand?

Havent' been back and probably never will.

The bloomin onion is great, but i could never eat an entire one by myself. And it is not worth the 2 hour wait. I'm sorry, but i don't think a restaurant is worth a 2 hour wait.

I'm in Rock Hill. Ordered my meal on line, drove out there and waited 45 minutes for it. Then the trouble started. Idiots can't see the line of cars waiting to drive into the parking lot and they turned left on the main road and were stuck in the middle of traffic and nobody could move. Took me almost an hour to wiggle thru traffic to get home, less than 5 miles, straight up a six lane road! But, it was worth every bite. steak, salad, big baked potato and my bloomin' onion!

That is a terrible post. Sorry for highlighting a few tiny nutrition facts to people who may not be aware of what the onion contains.

However, I do commend you for making a comment that didnt contain a youtube music video. Bravo.
