I ate there in Durham, NC 2 years ago and didn't like it. I don't like bean flours at all, and they use bean flours in their crust. I felt safe eating there in terms of knowledgeable servers and cross-contamination issues, but I just can't past that bean flour taste.

In Topic: Outback = No More Bloomin Onion

I went to the Roswell, GA Outback on Saturday June 15, 2012. They no longer have an EXTENDED gluten free menu!!!
Don't bother to make the long drive.

WORSE- they will let customers wait in line, be seated, order and receive drinks, and only when an item is ordered do they inform you about this major change to their menu.

The hostess staff coyly claims to have "no more gluten-free menus at the stand." Like who has not run into all the gluten-free menus being currently used. It was a horrible way to change their menu and treat people. My party were in the bathroom. I had to wait to leave until they all returned to the table. The waiter thought he could perhaps guilt me into eating something I did not want by bringing the drinks despite me telling him we would not stay since I could not have a bloomin onion (the only reason we drove out of our way to go there).

Tell all your friends so they are not treated this way AND they don't waste time, AND they don't have their evenings ruined.

That's too bad. I went to this location when I was in town this past February. I had the coconut shrimp and the chicken entree. Honestly, the only reason I would go back is for the coconut shrimp because the chicken was blah, but if they've discontinued the gluten-free menu, then I have no need to ever go back. No more menus at the stand? Come on!

In Topic: The Happy Tart Bakery In Northern Virginia!

I visited the Happy Tart the same day of my last post. I guess you could say I was desperate for a cupcake! I combined this trip with a visit to the Homemade Pizza Company, and I was able to park in the lot behind the pizza place. The Happy Tart owner was very nice! I asked if they used any chickpea or garbanzo bean flour (which I can't stand) in the items, and she said that they don't. Yay! I got 2 cupcakes - a salted caramel and a s'mores. Both were delicious. I wanted to go back today, but they close at 4 so I'm out of luck. Definitely a keeper! Mt. Vernon Avenue seems to have a lot of foot traffic, so I have the bakery can stick around.

Thanks for the recommendation! Whenever I go to Del Ray, I go to the Homemade Pizza Company. It will be nice to stop by the bakery on the way home to pick up some desserts.
