Outback Steakhouse in Burlington Has Closed

A popular Boston-area location of a chain of Australian-themed restaurants has closed, and this was currently the only outlet of the place located inside Route 128.

According to several sources (including a Twitter post from last night), the Burlington location of Outback Steakhouse shut its doors at the end of business hours yesterday. There had been rumors that the Cambridge Street dining spot would possibly be closing at some point, though nothing had been confirmed until recently. A handful of locations of Outback remain open in Eastern Massachusetts, including ones in Framingham, Norwood, Peabody, and Randolph, and a new outlet is planned for Assembly Row in Somerville as well.

The Burlington location of Outback had been open since the late 1990s, with the space previously being home to the Royal Hawaiian, a restaurant and bar that was known in part for its strong Polynesian drinks.

The address for Outback Steakhouse in Burlington was 34 Cambridge Street, Burlington, MA, 01803. The website for the chain can be found at
