Outback Steakhouse

I just had to share this. I went to an Outback restaurant and they actually had a gluten-free menu. I had shrimp, salad, garlic mashed potato's, steak and topped it off with a gluten-free brownie with ice cream, whipping cream and choc. sauce. I felt like a kid at Christmas. It's the first time I have been able to go somewhere and order from a gluten-free menu and not stress about either ordering the wrong food or something touching my food etc.

It was just wonderful! :D

Hi minibabe:

The one I went to was in Chico, California. I dreamed about that brownie last night and can still taste it. They had a gluten-free menu and list it on there as made without flour and safe to eat. They didn't have this brownie on the regular menu, I looked. I had told the waiter that I heard they had gluten-free food and he said they had recipe cards and he would check, then he came back with a menu! Neeless to say he got a big tip. It was just so neat not to have to pick and choose, and not worry that something was going to get in my food. I'm telling you I was like a kid at Christmas! I haven't had that experience since I found out about the celiac. The one I went to is about 2 1/2 hours away from me, so I probably won't go there much but I will go back.

Ask them about a different menu, this was hard plastic so I think they must have them in all of their restaurants. I don't think they leave them on the table though, I think he must of gotten this from the kitchen. The waiter was even excited because I was so excited. I e-mailed outback and tol them how wonderful I thought it was. I hope more restaurants do that.

I am so glad that you had a wonderful experience there. But i have been to several around me here in New York, and none of them have any brownies. But I am pretty lucky because there are a couple of restaurants and some of them have dessert.......the only dessert that I have had was Cheese cake, and it was good, but nothing like I used to eat (my grandmas). :)

Every Outback I've been to has the brownie. It's a standard part of their national me4nu and it's gluten-free at every Outback. It's not called a brownie in the title but Chocolate Thunder from Down Under.

If you go to the Outback web site and click on the menu, it will tell you to put in a city and state and then it will show the menu for a specific location. You can make sure that location carries it.

I think that cheescake sounds great also. I saw a recipe to make one using pamelas cookies but I haven't tried it yet.
