#5 Black Angus - Burbank

Rating: 1 cow

 

Black Angus is not known as a truly great steakhouse, and we all found out exactly why. Well, to be honest we knew this going in, but we were hoping to be as surprised by this budget restaurant as we were by Outback. Unfortunately for us, our mediocre expectations went hopelessly unfulfilled.

The evening began innocently enough with a few drinks at the bar, while the local sports teams battled it out and we sipped our Happy Hour-priced libations. The restaurant was particularly quiet on this Wednesday evening; our hostess snaked around the high-backed booths and settled on one large enough to accommodate all 6 of us comfortably.

We sat there for about 15 minutes with no waitress, no water, and without the bread she promised would "be right out". It's not as if the place was busy, in fact we couldn't see any other patrons from our booth. We ordered and when the steaks arrived we were disappointed yet again. All of our steaks were overcooked and tough. The cuts were thin and just did not look fresh, nor did they taste fresh. Lucky for us the waitress came back a few minutes later and offered us steak sauce, which we eagerly accepted, thus cementing the steaks at Black Angus at the very bottom of the experience (thus far).

The value is questionable because although the prices are low and the side dishes are included with your steak, the steaks are just not good and the sides are mediocre at best. Given the rather uninspired atmosphere and slow service, it's hard to find anything redeeming about this restaurant.

After our meal we mentioned to one of the employees about our endeavor and she asked us how it ranked among the other steakhouses. "Top 5!" we replied. We just neglected to tell her it was only the 5th place we'd been to at the time. Here's to hoping that our experiences only go up from here.
