(KSL News) Troops home from Iraq received a special thank-you today from Outback Steakhouse.

A group of families wanted to put together a welcome-home party for their returning troops. When they contacted the restaurant, the manager was so excited he offered to foot 100 percent of the bill.

Steve Johnson is the restaurant's managing partner. "To show that we support them and show that we appreciate everything they've done for us. It's just really the least we can do," he said.

About 120 troops and their families were treated to steak dinner free of charge.
