I Just Had A Awful Meal At Outback
0

7 posts in this topic

Ordered off their gluten-free menu but it was nasty. Steak and shrimp with brocoli. Steak was tough, raw, and downright nasty. Brocoli wasn't done. Waitstaff nice and took off the bill. The whole plate looked nasty!!! Glad I didn't eat it probably wasn't gluten-free anyhow.

So came home and ate a gluten-free waffle which is carbs and sugar. Yuck.

Hate nights out like that.

I have a gluten-free friend who has eaten at our local Outback and she has done well everytime. I have yet to attempt this. I really think it depends on the cooks and how well they are. Sorry you had a bad experience.

I just went Sunday to one in Plano, TX and it was disappointing too.

Let's see, if the steak was too raw for you, then you send it back for more cooking. Cooks sometimes undercook a little bit because if they overcook, there's no way undo that. Not sure about the tough part, I've never had tough meat at OB. Same with the broccoli. If you like your broccoli cooked to death (yuck), that's not the way Outback does it. They leave it somewhat crispy, but you can always get it cooked more. Probably not gluten-free? How did you order it? If you ordered it gluten-free, it probably was (although there's a chance of CC at ANY restaurant).

I like my veggies well cooked--at Outback, I always request that they come "well steamed". We have to ask for what we need since all people don't like things done the same way.

I would asked if they could have put the meat back on the grill for a few minutes (or replace if it was truly too tough to eat) and re-steamed the brocolli. I've been to Outbacks in 3 different states and at each one, they were more than happy to accomodate.

Not to say that bad service/meal prep can't happen anywhere, but we have to be proactive.

Sometimes steaks aren't good even at good resturants. I would try again. I went last week and they had a new dish so I tryed it. It was pork roast with a sweet sauce and red potatoes. It was very good.

I don't like the Outback. They bring way too much food and that {special) steak is always tough. By the time you eat that bread (well, nevermind that part) and the salad and appetizers, you're stuffed and even their forks and knives are giant sized and it just gives me the creeps, it's just all too much.

But they have a great drink there called a WallaBeDarned, it's delicious.

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
