Outback Steakhouse

9 posts in this topic

I just had to share this. I went to an Outback restaurant and they actually had a gluten-free menu. I had shrimp, salad, garlic mashed potato's, steak and topped it off with a gluten-free brownie with ice cream, whipping cream and choc. sauce. I felt like a kid at Christmas. It's the first time I have been able to go somewhere and order from a gluten-free menu and not stress about either ordering the wrong food or something touching my food etc.

It was just wonderful! :D

Hi minibabe:

The one I went to was in Chico, California. I dreamed about that brownie last night and can still taste it. They had a gluten-free menu and list it on there as made without flour and safe to eat. They didn't have this brownie on the regular menu, I looked. I had told the waiter that I heard they had gluten-free food and he said they had recipe cards and he would check, then he came back with a menu! Neeless to say he got a big tip. It was just so neat not to have to pick and choose, and not worry that something was going to get in my food. I'm telling you I was like a kid at Christmas! I haven't had that experience since I found out about the celiac. The one I went to is about 2 1/2 hours away from me, so I probably won't go there much but I will go back.

Ask them about a different menu, this was hard plastic so I think they must have them in all of their restaurants. I don't think they leave them on the table though, I think he must of gotten this from the kitchen. The waiter was even excited because I was so excited. I e-mailed outback and tol them how wonderful I thought it was. I hope more restaurants do that.

I am so glad that you had a wonderful experience there. But i have been to several around me here in New York, and none of them have any brownies. But I am pretty lucky because there are a couple of restaurants and some of them have dessert.......the only dessert that I have had was Cheese cake, and it was good, but nothing like I used to eat (my grandmas). :)

Every Outback I've been to has the brownie. It's a standard part of their national me4nu and it's gluten-free at every Outback. It's not called a brownie in the title but Chocolate Thunder from Down Under.

If you go to the Outback web site and click on the menu, it will tell you to put in a city and state and then it will show the menu for a specific location. You can make sure that location carries it.

I think that cheescake sounds great also. I saw a recipe to make one using pamelas cookies but I haven't tried it yet.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
