Outback Steakhouse

13 posts in this topic

I ate at Outback Steakhouse for the first time ever. I do not think I had been there even before being diagnosed and going gluten-free. I went there because of their free steak promotion. I asked about how I could have my steak done and not have to worry about CC. The waitress brought me out a gluten free menu. :o I never had a special menu before at any restaurant. gluten-free stuff was either on the regular menu or they were like gluten-free what is that :huh: or what is the big deal about gluten-free. so not only was there a special gluten-free menu so we could all save ourselves a lot of time and trouble and disappointment but it also included instructions on how to order things and options. i was impressed. the server was so sweet and helpful. the food was good. the challenge was my other food issues that are not so mainstream. but yay for progress in the gluten-free arena. :D best wishes in ur dinning endeavors and hope u have a good experience if you try outback.

I love getting ribs at Outback. I can never be sure about barbecue anywhere else so it's a treat. B) The gluten-free brownie dessert with ice cream is also excellent.

You should talk to folks at other places. The VAST majority of BBQ I've found has been gluten-free.

I had a good experience at Outback, too. I was pleasantly surprised by how many things are on their gluten-free menu.

You run across people who can actually tell you what's in the sauce? I've not been that lucky. :(

While driving across the midwest/east on vacation this summer, I actually wound up getting Outback carry out twice, simply because I knew they had a separate gluten-free menu and were on their game. They're one of the better chains of mid-level dining across the country. I've been impressed.

I never ate at Outback until my daughter and I were gluten free. Now it's our go to place on the road. We have only had good experiences with Outback. The wait staff has always been very helpful and knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free. It's very comforting to have one place on the road we can trust.

I love having my own special menu at Outback. I've been to other restaurants where you get a list you can cross check against the regular menu and while it's good to have the info, it can be quite confusing. Outback is easy.

I used to mock the place - I'm australian and it is not at all an australian-style restaurant. We go there for the north american style food and service! :lol: But I really appreciate their efforts gluten-free wise, even if the food names etc are totally crazy.

Aww you mean that I spread lies at work? You don't really drink frozen peach drinks named after the wallaby? From the stand point of the server at Outback, the gluten free menu is actually quite confusing. Since the gluten free menu is just the normal menu with the substitutions listed to make the meal gluten free. Like, the rack of lamb is gluten free as long as you don't have the cabernet sauce and no seasoning on the veggies. BUT it is listed on both menus with the same name. So sometimes there is confusion when people are not clear that they need a gluten free meal since the menus are made out of the same paper and design as the normal menu and people aren't always holding their menus when they order. It would be nice if the gluten free items had a different name.

I'm glad I've always specifically mentioned I'm ordering gluten-free.

I hadn't thought how confusing that menu could be for servers. From my point of view it gives me a sense of safety. If I'm eating the ONLY ribs Outback makes I know that my plate of ribs can't be inadvertently switched for a different kind of ribs with gluten.

I love Outback--been to several in different states and never a problem. Their Victoria's Filet is my all time favorite steak.

Hee. Sorry, we don't :lol:

Intersting that the menus are made out of the same paper and design - in Australia (or at least, at the one I eat at), it's totally different. Much smaller and the pages are laminated and bound on the top, so it's a little flip book. It looks like a baby book - the little sister gets jealous ;)

Oh, thank you for the brownie comment. I live 5 minutes away from OB and never been there. Well 2 more weeks of lactose free and I'm headed for a Chocolate from Down Under Brownie for lunch. Can't wait. Thanks again

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
