Please note first that my Outback is extremely well versed with the gluten free diet and they are probably more trustworthy than many Outbacks. They informed me this evening that the actual Aussie Chips are gluten free, that its due to CC in the fryer and the seasonings that they are not listed as gluten free. Then they proceeded to tell me that they have a new fryer dedicated to only the Aussie Chips and the seasoning isn't added until after they're fried so they could make them gluten free. I spoke to the manager, Sarah, she's been great to us this past year and a half. She confirmed that this was indeed correct. So, we ordered Aussie Chips with my husband's meal (he's not Celiac) and I tried two. It's three hours later and I haven't had a reaction. I usually react within the first hour or two. Anyway, if your Outback has a dedicated fryer, you may want to ask if they can make the Aussie Chips gluten free for you. They were GOOD!!!

Yup, Lancaster, PA. I double checked with the manager and everything and she explained that it was just the seasoning that contained gluten. We've been dealing with her for just over a year. She's the one that got them to carry Bard's Tale as well as a few higher end vodkas that aren't derived from a grain base. I totally trust her if she says its gluten free. Plus, I haven't had a reaction. I didn't order the fries because I was a little nervous about them, but I think next time I'll probably order them. I miss real french fries.

The manager at our local Outback told me the same thing. The last time I went in there I had "chips" too - just with salt - and had no problems.

Dang! That was it. Work just treated my group out to lunch and I got a burger and some chips. I asked about the dedicated fryer. But I had the seasoning. I did a quick read of the ingrediants, but didn't see any thing obvious. Now I know! Still feeling awful since lunch 1.5 days ago.

Edit... oops, I just read this again. I had went to a Red Robin... not Outback doh!
