My family and I are going to Black Angus (aka Stuart Anderson's) tomorrow night. I haven't been there since my diagnosis. Does anyone know if they are good to celiacs? Or any good menu items? Thanks! B)

I've been wanting to go there, but the closest location is about 60 miles away - in Puyallup, tee hee! They are known for steaks. So if you like steaks, I'd say order your favorite one! Although... I don't know about gluten free. www.blackangus.com you can check out the menu and probably get a phone number to call them. It is a nice enough place - they should be able to specially prepare your food for you if you ask.

MmmMmMm just looked at the menu. With dinner, you pick any two sides. Vegetable medley and baked potato would probably be good. *droool*

I prefer Outback Steakhouse since going gluten-free/DF/SF, because they have a gluten free menu and are very celiac friendly. From what I learned from Outback I would suggest that you tell your server at Black Angus that you can't have any gluten from wheat, barley, rye (and whatever intolerances you have). Then order plain grilled meats, salads with NO croutons mixed in a clean bowl (if they mix the dressing in individual salads), vegies simply seasoned with salt/pepper and herbs (rather than a seasoning mix which could contain gluten). Since I must also avoid dairy I request the chef NOT add a dollup of butter to my steak to keep it moist. I usually email restaurants which I have not visited since going gluten-free and tell them my restrictions. Then I ask if their chef can prepare me a gluten-free/DF/SF meal from grilled meats or fish and cooked vegies without extra sauces. Good luck with Black Angus! Be sure to report back to us how celiac friendly they were. ;)

I just back from there, it went pretty well and tasted really good. I got a plain steak, veggies and baked potato with only butter. I called ahead and talked to the manager and I was afraid then that it wasn't going to go well because she didn't even know what gluten was. But when I got there she came to my table and apparently caught my order before it went back to the chef because she came out and told me that they normally put a seasoning on the vegetables and asked if I could have that and I said no. So she actually caught that, I was pretty impressed. I gave my GIG card to the waiter though, intending for him to take it the chef, he kind of held it for a while and gave it back to me without really looking at it, so that sucked. But I feel fine afterward so I'd say it was a pretty good experience. :D

I've been to the Outback twice since I was diagnosed and the service has been terrible. The first time we called ahead and it still took almost an hour and a half to be sitted even though they told us it would only be 45 minutes. And they sat other groups only 1 smaller than us who got there after us. Then the food took forever and it was way to dark in there. My husband and I went back to celebrate our anniversary there because I didn't want to have to deal with places that didn't know my situation. It was a Thursday night and it still took a long time to get our food. So, I wasn't very impressed with them even though it is gluten-free. <_<

I went to Black Angus about a month ago for lunch and the waitress was VERY nice. (Citrus Heights, CA). I got the London Broil lunch as she said that it was one of the steaks they don't marinade first and I had her give me double steamed veggies (I can't eat potatoes). I also asked if they could clean the grill. I also had a salad but forgot to mention croutons which came on it, but she very nicely took it back and got me a new one. Actually, it was funny, I was with my mom and I said I couldn't have croutons and my mom jumps in telling her that the seasoning on the croutons would make me very ill and that they easily crumble off the croutons and into the salad. When the waitress walked away I looked funny at my mom and she said she'd made the big deal so the waitress wouldn't just take the croutons off and bring it back. It was a major victory for me as my mom stood up for me, for the first time since I've gone gluten-free (6 months now).

Anyway, it was obviously a fresh salad, no spit (haha!) and the only "problem" was when I got my steak there was a little cup of some kind of dipping juice on the plate. But I just took it off the plate and ate my lunch. And no glutening from it, either.

Very good experience! Only drawback to Black Angus - why the heck do they always insist on making you sit in the waiting area first? They always do that, so does Red Lobster. Is it to make you *think* they are just so busy or something? I have gone to a lot of restaurants in my life and only these two consistently make you sit first in the waiting area, no matter how slow they are. It must be some company policy but I don't understand why...

Hi Abby:

I have to admit that my first experience with Outback was TERRIBLE. We waited maybe 20 minutes for a table after they promised us a 10 minute wait. They kept trying to sell us cold alcoholic drinks while we were seated in a cold, drafty waiting area. Eventually we gave up and left before ever getting a table. :angry: So we called ahead before our next visit and put our names on the 'waiting list', since they don't take reservations. We also planned our visit for a slow night (Monday through Wednesday) when the wait would be shorter if at all. The past 3 'slow night' visits have been wonderful with no wait and very attentive service. The worst part of our experience was the loud rock music. <_< Unfortunately Outback is popular with nonceliacs as well. :unsure:

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
