My sister is a manager at Outback, so from the day I found out I was GI, she came to my rescue! She said, if the restaurant near you does not know what you're talking about, ask to speak with the kitchen manager, they've all been trained in this. Back in March when I found out about myself, my nearby Outbacks front people hadn't a clue. Now, they are absolutely terrific. We had one incident where someone picked croutons back off my salad, my 6 year old daughter reached over and ate one piece of cheese with crumbs on it and immediately made a fuss (she's the gluten police, Lol) and half an hour later was throwing up. The manager pulled the entire staff and lectured them about proper food handling and such. We also got a $40+ gift certificate. They are serious about how they handle food allergies and special requests. We go there 2-3x a month and will continue doing so.
Also, for those of you with large groups, they also (most anyway) have call ahead seating.
Last of all, their Alice Springs Chicken is awesome and, as far as dressings go, I order their house salad with caesar dressing on the side. The best!
