  1. Just wanted to share with everyone a good experience at a restaurant. I recently tried the Bonefish grill in Alexandria VA and they prepared the food well (no cc) and had lots of items including a gluten free brownie with ice cream for desert. The manager even came to the table to make sure they had the order right and they brought the food out on a separate tray to avoid contamination. They have locations in other cities as well.
  2. I have also had mixed results when going to red robin. They have a policy that the manager is supposed to bring out and plates that are ordered with special diets in mind but they have been failing to do so when I have been there recently. The last two times that I was there they brought the food out incorrectly and then had to remake it. The last time was because they "accidentally" got something else on the plate. I couldn't tell if it was ranch dressing or mayo but I can't have either do it wouldn't have mattered. I always ask that they bring my food out separately so there is no CC, though it still rarely happens. Each time something like this goes on I try to educate the manager about what happens when we eat gluten or casein. I am trying to look on this positively but it is getting very hard to go out with the family when you almost always have to watch them eat while you wait for them to fix your meal for the 2nd or 3rd time.
  3. Outback Steakhouse - Roswell, Georgia

    I traveled threw Atlanta and stopped with some friends at the outback in Roswell.... excellent food and it was prepared well since I didn't get sick...
  4. I was diagnosed with celiac less than a year ago. I am unable also to tolerate many vegetables, citrus fruits, preservatives and any milk or cheese. Unfortunately I travel extensively for work, not just in the country but also out of it. I have been packing the majority of my food to take with me but this gets to be a huge burden and very expensive to pack and take two weeks of food with you on an airplane. On my last trip I went to several restaurants that advertised they had a gluten free menu. I had very mixed results and I am still sick from eating at one of them. I have tried talking to the managers and explaining to them the issue and have still gotten my food delivered incorrectly 2/3 of the time. Does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do while eating out? I have a month long trip coming up and I know I can't take that much food with me nor do I want to eat canned foods that entire time.
