Outback Steakhouse

I ate at Outback Steakhouse for the first time ever. I do not think I had been there even before being diagnosed and going gluten-free. I went there because of their free steak promotion. I asked about how I could have my steak done and not have to worry about CC. The waitress brought me out a gluten free menu. :o I never had a special menu before at any restaurant. gluten-free stuff was either on the regular menu or they were like gluten-free what is that :huh: or what is the big deal about gluten-free. so not only was there a special gluten-free menu so we could all save ourselves a lot of time and trouble and disappointment but it also included instructions on how to order things and options. i was impressed. the server was so sweet and helpful. the food was good. the challenge was my other food issues that are not so mainstream. but yay for progress in the gluten-free arena. :D best wishes in ur dinning endeavors and hope u have a good experience if you try outback.

I love getting ribs at Outback. I can never be sure about barbecue anywhere else so it's a treat. B) The gluten-free brownie dessert with ice cream is also excellent.

You should talk to folks at other places. The VAST majority of BBQ I've found has been gluten-free.

I had a good experience at Outback, too. I was pleasantly surprised by how many things are on their gluten-free menu.

You run across people who can actually tell you what's in the sauce? I've not been that lucky. :(

While driving across the midwest/east on vacation this summer, I actually wound up getting Outback carry out twice, simply because I knew they had a separate gluten-free menu and were on their game. They're one of the better chains of mid-level dining across the country. I've been impressed.

I never ate at Outback until my daughter and I were gluten free. Now it's our go to place on the road. We have only had good experiences with Outback. The wait staff has always been very helpful and knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free. It's very comforting to have one place on the road we can trust.

I love having my own special menu at Outback. I've been to other restaurants where you get a list you can cross check against the regular menu and while it's good to have the info, it can be quite confusing. Outback is easy.

I used to mock the place - I'm australian and it is not at all an australian-style restaurant. We go there for the north american style food and service! :lol: But I really appreciate their efforts gluten-free wise, even if the food names etc are totally crazy.

Aww you mean that I spread lies at work? You don't really drink frozen peach drinks named after the wallaby? From the stand point of the server at Outback, the gluten free menu is actually quite confusing. Since the gluten free menu is just the normal menu with the substitutions listed to make the meal gluten free. Like, the rack of lamb is gluten free as long as you don't have the cabernet sauce and no seasoning on the veggies. BUT it is listed on both menus with the same name. So sometimes there is confusion when people are not clear that they need a gluten free meal since the menus are made out of the same paper and design as the normal menu and people aren't always holding their menus when they order. It would be nice if the gluten free items had a different name.

I'm glad I've always specifically mentioned I'm ordering gluten-free.

I hadn't thought how confusing that menu could be for servers. From my point of view it gives me a sense of safety. If I'm eating the ONLY ribs Outback makes I know that my plate of ribs can't be inadvertently switched for a different kind of ribs with gluten.

I love Outback--been to several in different states and never a problem. Their Victoria's Filet is my all time favorite steak.

Hee. Sorry, we don't :lol:

Intersting that the menus are made out of the same paper and design - in Australia (or at least, at the one I eat at), it's totally different. Much smaller and the pages are laminated and bound on the top, so it's a little flip book. It looks like a baby book - the little sister gets jealous ;)

Oh, thank you for the brownie comment. I live 5 minutes away from OB and never been there. Well 2 more weeks of lactose free and I'm headed for a Chocolate from Down Under Brownie for lunch. Can't wait. Thanks again

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
