Texas Roadhouse Or Logan's Roadhouse?

Recommended Posts

DH's holiday party is this weekend. The girls always spend the evening with the grandparents. They go to dinner and then to Chuck E Cheese's to play (we don't eat there!). I'm concerned enough about the little one even being at CEC without my supervision, but I'm also wondering if she'll be able to eat dinner. My mom has already told me they are going to either Texas Roadhouse or Logan's Roadhouse, depending on which one has the shortest wait.

Has anyone had a good experience with either of these steakhouses? I do plan to call ahead and talk to both places about the menu, but I am interested in thoughts from those who have been there, done that.

My family has gone to Logan's. I don't know if it was because of gluten or not because when I went I wasn't that into watching gluten. I had thought I was safe with ribs. But I got violently ill. I was in bed for 2 days (and usually when I get that bad I push myself to get out of bed). My grandmother and her boyfriend had also gotten sick (they have no issues with foods). I also don't know how young your kids are....and if people will watch her carefully...but also my experience with the rolls (with gluten) were NASTY...very yeasty...and here's me loving bread...

So to be honest our whole experience stunk...but then again we don't know what exactly it was.

I had contacted Texas Roadhouse because my daughter keeps getting gift certificates for a free meal from school, but so far no one has bothered to call me back or e-mail me back... when I called the local one they didn't have a clue what I was talking about.

I've done well with either. I ask for the steak with only S&P, not their seasoning, I get the baked sweet potato and veggies without seasoning, and I do fine. When I was traveling, Steak places were my "least risk" place to eat out. The last time I was in a Texas roadhouse, they even did the steak in a pan instead of on the grill <_< to protect me. I just use the easy -- "I'm allergic to wheat and the seasoning most likely has wheat in it" that simplifies the problem, but makes me understood.

I eat at Texas and if I have a new server, I let them know I have food allergies and don't have any problems. They clean a portion of the grill for me. I haven't tried Logan's yet - we just got one in town. I eat a plain salad and steak - the green beans I give to hubby because they have bacon. I also shield my food (imagine my arms and hands forming a small wall around my plate) when I go with family and they are eating break or peanuts. My kids and DH are OK, it is my father I have to be concerned about since he is not around me enough to know how truly sensitive I am.

When I first started this, I actually put my menu up as a wall between me and my bread-weilding hubby. That embarrased him enough that he got more careful! :lol:

I didn't have any problems at Texas Roadhouse. I made sure the server knew I had food allergies & they wrote in red ink several times on my order slip "NO SEASONINGS!" -- ribeye, sweet potato, and lettuce salad with just lemon juice. I forgot to ask about a clean spot on the grill, but it was the only meal during my trip I didn't get sick from.

Well, it seemed to go well at Logan's Roadhouse. DD's reaction time is almost exactly 24 hours and she has been fine all day. She had a plain sweet potato and unseasoned veggies, which was simply broccoli this time of year (surprised it didn't include any winter squash though).

Thanks for the feedback! I decided to let her have a go at it. Even though she's only 1, I just don't want her to feel isolated and left out all the time. Grandma and Grandpa said she had a great time. She took her own "appetizers" and they kept the rolls far away from her.

I recently had a salad and potato at Logans and was ill for 3 days. : (

2005 found out I had faulty saline breast implants and was internally poisoned

2005 had implants properly removed with immediate 80% recovery of most symptoms

6/2006 started gluten free diet when digestive problems were not healing, even after agressively fighting candidiasis

I printed off a copy of the Texas Roadhouse gluten free menu from their website and use it when we eat there......our waitress understood what I was talking about and made copious notes for the kitchen staff. I am very happy with them.

I haven't tried Logan's lately because I have never liked their food.
