outback with Outback...lol

We went to lunch at Outback Steakhouse on Brownsboro Rd.  A bit outside of our usual trek, but we were enjoying the beautiful day.  Amazingly, our sever,  Reece, was one we loved at One Nineteen West Main, so even though we traveled from home, we had a family face to watch over us.  She is THE best server, so we were delighted to see her again.  Great steaks, super service and a lovely lunch and ride to and from on a gorgeous October day.
