Outback Steakhouse Laughlin gets 27 demerits

Laughlin, Nevada
Once again another Laughlin restaurant popped up with a bad rating and too many demerits (for our comfort) on a recent Southern Nevada Health District inspection.  This time it was the Outback Steakhouse in the Aquarius Casino.  

On February 20, 2014 during a routine health inspection they received a Grade of C (the lowest available) with 27 demerits.

Most of these were for maintaining, cooking, storage of food at proper temperatures, as well as one violation for protecting food from possible contamination.

Well, maybe there are a few rules?! 
This hasn't stopped people from dining there, most likely unaware of the bad report. Just two days after the inspection (we were not aware of) we were at the Aquarius and someone in our group wanted to go to the Outback.  The place was packed and wait was 50 minutes to get in (luckily we didn't wait). 

The previous inspection at the Outback was in April of 2013 and they received an A grade. Looking at the history of inspections, there has been other issues here in the past including being closed down in 2010.  

Previous Inspections

We have had some good and a few not so good experiences at this location.  We have not been there in quite a long time.  Most of the bad experiences we did have were related to service.  

*Note:  This Outback Steakhouse is not owned by Aquarius or their parent company, the proprietor listed is Archie Overton. 

Other bad recent health inspections in Laughlin included the Riverside Resort Buffet (C grade, 14 demerits) and the Minato Sushi Restaurant (C grade, 40 demerits).
