Outback Steakhouse and Carrabba's Italian Grill, two national restaurant chains with roots in Tampa Bay, have teamed up to offer a new way to deliver their delicious favorites right to your front door. With Outback and Carrabba's Express, you can order highlights from the menus of both restaurants and have them ready for pickup or delivery in minutes.

Outback and Carrabba's Express has four Florida locations, in South Tampa, Conway (southeast of downtown Orlando), Miami Gardens, and Hollywood, with two more locations opening in Riverview and Hallandale this summer. These are different than your usual Outback and Carrabba's restaurants because there is no dining in: it's all for delivery and to-go only. The Express locations are smaller than a full-size restaurant and only offer take-out and delivery, making it easy to get your favorite dishes fast and get them on the dinner table. There's no extra charge for take-out orders, and delivery is just $4 per order plus gratuity.

From these express locations, you can choose from a menu of Outback and Carrabba's most popular dishes, like Outback's famous Bloomin' Onion, steaks like their Victoria's Filet Mignon and Ayers Rock NY Strip, or specialties like the Alice Springs Chicken and the Drover's Platter of baby back ribs and BBQ chicken. On the Carrabba's side, you can get Italian classics like the Fettuccine Carrabba, lasagna, and spaghetti, or enjoy their Tuscan-grilled chicken, sirloin, or filet. (Of course The Johnny combo is available, too!) Carrabba's Family Bundles are also on the menu, for nights when you need to feed the whole family. Their bundles of penne alfredo, chicken parmesan, and penne Carrabba, among others, come with your choice of salad and feed up to five people.

Don't forget to add on everything you need for a complete meal! Outback and Carrabba's Express offers desserts like the Chocolate Thunder and Sogno di Cioccolata, and they also have beer and wine for delivery to match up with your steak or pasta. 

For bigger crowds or office lunches, Outback and Carrabba's Express can handle catering as well. You can create your own combos, or order a la carte from their menu or nearly 30 entrees, soups, salads, and sides. No matter what event you're holding, Outback and Carrabba's Express has something for everyone.

If you can't make it to your nearest Outback or Carrabba's, or you just want the food without the crowd or the wait, Outback and Carrabba's Express is the answer. Order online at http://www.outbackandcarrabbasexpress.com/, or call your nearest location to take care of your next meal!
