I was traveling and went to an Outback a few weeks ago and the waiter told me Aussie fries were now gluten-free. The printed menu didn't reflect that, but he told me it had just happened, that they get them frozen now. I asked him if they were deep fried in the same oil as the bloomin onions, and he said he'd check with the chef. He came back and said they're 'now' gluten-free, but he didn't know about the oil. I didn't order them.

Later, a manager walked by, so I asked the manager if it was true the fries were now gluten-free, and the manager shrugged and said he couldn't keep up with things, but if the waiter said so, it must be true. Not reassuring, of course, but I was wondering in anyone else has heard anything. The menu on their website is still dated 2010 and lists them as not being gluten-free.

If this had happened to me, I would email the corporate office. Tell them which Outback and that the manager " can't keep up with thongs" in his own resturaunt. You were wise not to eat them.

Outback has a restaurant in Georgis where they test new gluten-free foods. I think they would want to know about this.
