Has anyone tried ordering from the Gluten-Free menu at any of the Outback Steakhouse restaurants? It is the only restaurant menu I've ever seen where you can custom order virtually most of the items on the regular menu based on a written recommendation by the restaurant on what to avoid for a Gluten-Free meal. Go to http://www.outback.com/menu/ and download the menu. I wish more restaurants offered this type of service, and I won't be surprised if more do it in the very near future.

When we travel through Wyoming, Outback is about the only place I can find to eat! I've found they are pretty knowledgeable about their menu. I did have a problem ONCE when I found in a crouton in my salad. Since then, I've been more careful about ordering, making SURE they know that I cannot have ANY gluten, telling them not to make my salad with the others or in the same bowl croutons have been in, etc. But they always seem pretty educated about it. I usually get a steak with veggies and a salad.

They do have a very nice gluten free menu and seem very knowledgeable.

My son and DIL took me to our local Outback for my recent birthday and I did have problems afterwards...this was the first time I've eaten out since going gluten free on April 9. Not sure I can blame Outback as I'm sure I ate more than normal, I got ranch dressing on the side for my salad (didn't realize they added shredded cheese...I should have asked more questions) or I possibly got glutened. I also had a rib eye steak and garlic mashed potatoes, all from the gluten free menu. The meal was delicious and the restaurant is always crazy busy even though we had a very early dinner.

So who knows what happened. I've been trying to avoid dairy, which obviously didn't happen with my menu choices. I have a dr. appt. tomorrow afternoon and will find out the results of the basic RAST test for food intolerances (not sure how accurate they are but it's a starting point as I still have daily issues). Maybe it's just too early in the healing process to consider eating out.

Has anyone tried ordering from the Gluten-Free menu at any of the Outback Steakhouse restaurants?

In the past year and a half I've eaten from the Outback gluten-free menu on New York's east side, Orlando, Tampa, Winter Haven (Fl), two in northern Virginia, Kansas City, and just west of Foster City, CA. I've been there so many times recently I have the menu memorized.

In all the meals I've eaten, I've only had two problems:

1) One restaurant served me croutons in the salad, and because the croutons were covered with lettuce I didn't realize it until I finished a scrumptious, crunchy bite of the salad and found half a crouton in the bowl, and

2) The New York City Outback served au jus with the prime rib, contrary to the advice on the gluten-free menu. When I questioned the serving the manager said "we serve it this way because nine out of ten of our gluten-free diners don't react to it, and they like the taste". Because I didn't want to be the one out of ten that did react, I sent the food back, and they prepared a proper plate.

So, Outback's batting average is very, very good. I believe it's one of the best gluten-free dining options around. Of course, your mileage may vary....

My one tip is to try their pork loin. Although Outback is known for steaks, that pork loin was surprisingly good. It's my favorite menu item.

I've successfully eaten gluten-free/CF at Outback twice now! The menu is great, the service has been great - I've been thoroughly impressed!!

I have heard that the salads are all tossed in the same bowl, with croutons. So it's very difficult to order a salad and know that it's not CC. So, I have not ordered salads at Outback.

I ordered a regular dinner salad (without croutons) with dressing on the side. That type of salad is not tossed in a bowl or if I had wanted the other kind, you can request that they use a clean bowl (per our waitress).

At Outback, I always order the small fillet with no seasonning, either the loaded baked potato or baked sweet potato, and the mixed veggies with no butter/seasonning. I'm leary of ordering salad anywhere.

I have had 2 very positive experiences at Outback. Both times i ordered the small steak with baked potato and veggies. My husband had the ribs, which were delicious. No bread was bought to the table and our severs were extremely attentive. After a week travelling and eating subway salads it was like heaven! Highly recommend.

    • Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've been gluten free for just over a year and have been pretty good about staying away from processed foods and bread substitutes. I was just really jonesing for my grandma's banana pudding. Zanthan gum, soy and corn don't bother. So Googling the other two things I ate around the same time I only came up with one tiny web hit pointing to the fig of all things but I'm doubtful. It was an article about foods high in FODMAPs (whatever those are) which included figs and prunes. It suggests they trigger gastrointestinal symptoms. Well yeah! But I eat prunes all the time so I feel like I'm just reaching. Adding this to my food log but I may take a chance and try another piece of cookie one more time in another day or so and cross my fingers before ruling them out completely. I don't believe any company is perfectly infallible even if they do have a great reputation. I'm still super sensitive and have been occasionally triggered by other products that others seem to have no problem with. 
    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
