PF Changs has a gluten free menu, that you will need to ask for. I have asked, and so has a friend of mine, about a 'dedicated area' for gluten-free foods, and both restaurants (Flatirons and Park Meadows) said they did have that. I haven't ordered anything besides what is on the gluten-free menu, to be made gluten-free, but I think they are glad to do that.
Here's a link to ouside the breadbox
I liked the chocolate and carrot cakes, but it is pretty hard to go wrong with desserts :D . I was at my first Denver area CSA ?- celiac association meeting, and outside the breadbox brought some new crackers they were working on. I though they were both pretty good. I didn't really care for the bread I ordered from them, but haven't found any bread I like yet. The best so far is the gluten-free pantry breadmix that we make in our breadmaker. If you slice it very thin, and toast it it is pretty good.
We haven't tried Outback yet, but I have no desire to cook tonight, so maybe we will tonight.

Regarding dining at OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE. Each restaurant recently received 2 gluten free menus, they look just like the regular menus. When ordering your salads without the croutons beware of the salad maker. His hands or gloves have touched the croutons for all the other salads he makes. He is also the one who makes the desserts, so that means he has to pull that gluten-free brownie out of it's plastic wrap. If your salad arrives with croutons on it and they take it back there is a tendency to just remove the croutons, so when you send it back ask them to now put the dressing on the side. Your best bet for non cross-contamination is to ask for the manager as soon as you get seated, he/she should be able to help you.

Just as a side note, I found a bread mix that is really really good. I am a newly diagnosed celiac disease and have not been experiementing much yet. However, in our Safeway and also our local health food store, there is a mix, called A wonderful gluten-free bread mix. It's about $4. It is so easy to make. I think it can be made in the bread maker, but I have been making it in the oven. I would never know it's SPECIAL bread.

Dear Laura,
Could you please check the bread mix you mentioned "A Wonderful gluten-free Bread Mix" and give me the name of the manufacturer. We don't have Safeway store in our area, but the health food store could possibly order it for me. I've been trying to make a decent bread for years. I bake for my 11 yo grandson, and he likes to take sandwiches to school. Thanks so much! Jo Ann :)

Hey Joann,
No problem, I love this bread. It freezes well, easy to make, and tastes really good in my opinion. Im so bad with breads, but this one turns out 100% of the time. It's made by Bob's Red Mill, and it's called " a Wonderrful gluten-free bread mix". Im sure your health food store would have it. Bob's Red Mill is a main company producing the alternative flours.

Hope you find and it, and like it! :D

Not sure if you have already had your trip or not, but I thought I'd chime in. There is a Carrabba's a few miles off of 36 which would be your most likely route from Denver to Estes Park.
I have not had any experience yet with eating gluten-free in restaurants, but in my opinion Carrabba's has incredible food (I am especially fond of their chicken Marsala) and they are very professional- you can observe most of the food preparation as it is done in plain view, so you could probably even talk with the chef as your food is being prepared. I would think them capable of handling special needs very professionally.

PF Changs has been a great restaurant to work with on gluten-free selections- as is Pei Wei. Boston Market has a gluten-free menu. Taco Bell crunchy taco's are gluten-free- not sauces. All foods at Spring Creek BBQ are gluten-free. Bennigan's also has a gluten-free menu.

Also, if you are ever looking for a fun vacation Royal Carribean cruise line was amazing. We had several entrees to choose from at each meal with the approriate gluten-free modifications. Absolutely delicious! They even made us gluten-free bread, which my daughter swears is the best bread she has ever had. They went over the top appeasing us and we never got sick-not even once.

Best of luck.
