Hello,

I've never been there before. Just wondering if anyone can recommend what they have good that is gluten free. I printed out their menu and I'm thinking about the baby back ribs. Is the sauce ok that comes with them??

Thanks,

Joni

They have lots of good gluten-free food. Go to their website and check the FAQ.

The list says it expires in 6/07 but I asked the manager and she said the ingredients of what I wanted to eat hadn't changed since then.

I like the pepper bacon wrapped filet. The ribs are also listed as gluten-free but don't eat the fries.

Enjoy!

I would also call ahead and speak with the manager...that way they can let the chef know.

Oh boy, what a bad experience!

First of all, I called them Wednesday and spoke with a manager to make reservations because we had a party of 15. They said no problem we will have tables set up for you. Then I asked if they had a gluten free menu and they said "Yes" we do. I asked a few questions and she seemed to be aware of Celiac and what the requirements were. So far so good.

So, we got there tonight and they had no tables set up for us. We had to wait about 20 minutes for them to prepare our tables. Then they told me they couldn't find thier gluten free menu and they couldn't access their own website from their computer because they were locked out of it. OK, so I figured I would just get a steak, baked potato, and steamed veggie...no problem.

Everyone orders, gets there meal and I am still waiting for mine. The waiter comes out and says that they accidently sprinkled the seasoning on my steak and they had to make me a new one. So my dinner was 20 or so minutes late coming out...not good, but at least they didn't just give me the original steak.

Then, we all had coffee after. They ran out of the little creamers and brought out cups of milk for coffee. Fine, this stuff happens and I didn't get upset. We poured the milk in our coffee and it all curdled. Also, my Aunt got tea and the water was totally cold. OK, so now I've had totally enough. They brought us all new coffee and new milk but really the meal was ruined by now.

I hope it's just my imagination and I really didn't eat that much, but I feel bloated (my main symptom of Celiac prior to diagnosis) right now. This is not good.

This was my first experience at Longhorne. I can either

A) Never go back

B) Write this whole thing up and send them a letter about my experience

I know what I should do, but I am just so frustrated right now.

Our local Longhorn is wonderful & very causious. I've eaten there several times & never had a problem in fact I ask they put a bit of salt & pepper on my steak when cooking it in foil & they told me I could do it at my table. They would not take any chances. The manager came over several times to see if everything was ok.

I think I would write to the corperate office & tell them. The steaks are not cheap & I'm glad they found their mistake before you ate the steak.
