Longhorn Steakhouse

7 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share my first dining out experience since being diagnosed. My fiance and I wanted to go to a steakhouse and since Longhorn is near us we decided on there. We called ahead first to speak to the manager and let him know of my situation. He assured us that he has cooked for people with allergies before and to ask for him when we got there. We asked for him and he told me to order my meat and veggies dry, no spices, etc. and he had my steak prepared on tin foil. He told me how everything was prepared, washed, etc. and where bread products were and assured me they would be nowhere near my food. Long story short, he went to great lengths ensuring that I was safe and I was very appreciative. Just letting you guys know. This gave me great confidence.

Hi Jennyj I want to try Longhorn also because I'm having a hard i time finding places that I feel safe eating except Mexican chicken tacos and rice and beans. I go to the same two or three places that know us pretty well. I get a magazine called "living without" that also has a list of restraunts that has gluten free items on the menu. I found a pizza place near me that makes a gluten free pizza. I was pretty excited that I didn't have to bake it myself. I also noticed that you have an iron problem, I take 3- 18 mil iron pills every day to try to bring up my iron count up. Sandy

I just wanted to add that this thread is a great example for newly diagnosed Celiacs.

1. ALWAYS CALL AHEAD AND TALK TO A MANAGER

2. I love how the guy cooked the food on tinfoil, this is so simple, but many managers are clueless when it comes to creative preparation and thoughtful cooking methods.

3. Make sure you email the corporate office and tell them what the manager did for you (including the tinfoil and everything). The more emails they get, the more likely they will come out with a gluten free menu for all of their locations, plus the manager deserves some praise from the corporate office.

Recently, I had a similar experience at an IHOP. The manager went out of her way and prepared everything separately and on clean pans. It was a great experience and I told corporate all about it!

Hi Jen...glad to hear of your positive experience @ Longhorn. I just moved to New Jersey from Long Island and feel a bit lost without my familiar safe places to eat. I also gave Longhorn a try and found them to be very accommodating. I also emailed the corporate offices and found out that the steak sauce is gluten free. They are also working on a gluten free menu, similar to the one that Outback has. Keep asking questions and read all labels very carefully. Feel good !

Eileen :D

    • I prefer edible candy. I have glaucoma and celiac so it helps me on a daily basis for all of my medical problems. I wish I could find a strain that has laxative effects so I didn't need linsess. Leafly.com has a lot of strain information and cannabist is a good resource, too. You can use CBD or THC and not get 'stoned'. I function fine on 20 mg of the candy. I refuse to drive if I smoke though. Good luck, hope it helps.
    • MC can be quite harsh as a laxative if your using it as one very effective....I mean 2 boxes of exlax did me nada back then. For a daily supplement try just taking Nature Vitality Calm twice daily start off with 1/4tsp work your way up to 1tsp doses if you can. If this is too harsh on you use a Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best, less effective as a laxative but will still help provide you with a magnesium you body can utilize.
    • Thanks will try MC I tried LBS although it worked but it was brutal on my stomach 😬😬
    • OH odd info here but the best way I found found to use it is a slow low temp extraction into coconut oil, and using this oil in cooking. Use a mortar and pestal to grind your greens into a fine powder, and heat slowly in a pan with virgin coconut oil just very low temp for a while you will see the oils from the greens mix with the coconut oil. You can then use this oil blend in baking edibles, or in whatever you wish. I make it very weak myself with just small bag in a entire 16oz container of coconut oil. I do it for the medical benefits nothing else. I like using it in paleo breads, or drizzle a bit over salads,   CBD oil also has some benefits I have noticed in smaller amounts and CBD is legal in most states the gold one seems to be the best.
    • Yeah pretty standard, I also have neurological symptoms. Magnesium helps with the constipation and if you have any issues with nerve pain, numbness, prickly feelings, etc. ......I used to go 8-12 days of constipation.....was hell nothing made it move unless I drank 2 whole bottles of magnesium citrate maximum strength laxative.
