So 1 of my family members thinks there is a strong chance Outback Steakhouse made a mistake closing in Sheffield, AL to open in Florence, AL. Outback Steakhouse did have strong clientele where their previous location in Sheffield, AL was, almost always the restaurant was at least one third full (even at off peak times) and full on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights with a wait time. Today I passed by the new Outback Steakhouse and saw just as many if not slightly more cars at Logan's Roadhouse 3 doors down. Before they moved a server at Outback Steakhouse told me they were hoping to pick up some customers from Logan's Roadhouse and Longhorn Steakhouse, I think they may pick up a few from Longhorn Steakhouse (where I quit going after they took 2 of my favorite items off of the menu) but Logan's Roadhouse has regular customers because they have good food (with the exception of maybe a couple "don't order" items), made in house yeast rolls which are really good, and they are cheaper than Outback Steakhouse! Does anyone think it's a bad sign Outback Steakhouse didn't have more cars than Logan's Roadhouse?
