Longhorn Steakhouse

7 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share my first dining out experience since being diagnosed. My fiance and I wanted to go to a steakhouse and since Longhorn is near us we decided on there. We called ahead first to speak to the manager and let him know of my situation. He assured us that he has cooked for people with allergies before and to ask for him when we got there. We asked for him and he told me to order my meat and veggies dry, no spices, etc. and he had my steak prepared on tin foil. He told me how everything was prepared, washed, etc. and where bread products were and assured me they would be nowhere near my food. Long story short, he went to great lengths ensuring that I was safe and I was very appreciative. Just letting you guys know. This gave me great confidence.

Hi Jennyj I want to try Longhorn also because I'm having a hard i time finding places that I feel safe eating except Mexican chicken tacos and rice and beans. I go to the same two or three places that know us pretty well. I get a magazine called "living without" that also has a list of restraunts that has gluten free items on the menu. I found a pizza place near me that makes a gluten free pizza. I was pretty excited that I didn't have to bake it myself. I also noticed that you have an iron problem, I take 3- 18 mil iron pills every day to try to bring up my iron count up. Sandy

I just wanted to add that this thread is a great example for newly diagnosed Celiacs.

1. ALWAYS CALL AHEAD AND TALK TO A MANAGER

2. I love how the guy cooked the food on tinfoil, this is so simple, but many managers are clueless when it comes to creative preparation and thoughtful cooking methods.

3. Make sure you email the corporate office and tell them what the manager did for you (including the tinfoil and everything). The more emails they get, the more likely they will come out with a gluten free menu for all of their locations, plus the manager deserves some praise from the corporate office.

Recently, I had a similar experience at an IHOP. The manager went out of her way and prepared everything separately and on clean pans. It was a great experience and I told corporate all about it!

Hi Jen...glad to hear of your positive experience @ Longhorn. I just moved to New Jersey from Long Island and feel a bit lost without my familiar safe places to eat. I also gave Longhorn a try and found them to be very accommodating. I also emailed the corporate offices and found out that the steak sauce is gluten free. They are also working on a gluten free menu, similar to the one that Outback has. Keep asking questions and read all labels very carefully. Feel good !
