Onion Rings

Outback Steakhouse

So here's a question for food philosophers to ponder: Can you win the No. 1 onion rings if the batter-dipped, fried onion appetizer/side dish you serve is technically not in ring form? Geometry has never been our strong suit, so sure you can. And besides, the Outback Steakhouse's Bloomin' Onion -- an incredibly large onion splayed open, batter-fried, and served with dipping sauce -- has been making St. Louis Bruces and Shielas go walkabout for years now. So trust us -- whatever the shape, the Outback's offering in the onion category is too right, mate.
