I just got back from eating out at outback and it was great! I had the port fresh catch or something like that and I can't believe it was gluten-free it was great!

--Then we got dessert and the brownie is really good also. I am feeling full and a little dizzy but I really think it was totally OK.

--That is the first time I have eaten out and feel pretty good afterwards, I hope more restaurants will get gluten-free menus.

The brownie they offer is flourless and therefore gluten-free. Haven't had it yet but when I go back on dairy I want some!

Everything with a gluten-free is gluten-free on the menu. It is great! I liked the brownie but I make some at home that taste good I was more impressed with the main meal. I have not really eated at outback before and their food has great flavor!!! I feel like all the gluten-free is bland I like spice in my food and that had spice!

GO and try it!!!!

We ate at Outback last night and was honestly the most excited about the dessert :D , over anything else. They did not have any gluten-free desserts on the menu :( , they only had 3 to chooses from. The chicken (w/ gluten-free BBQ sauce) was good though. There must be different menus in different parts of the country ??? We live in Colorado.

There is a really gluten-free brownie mix, made by the Gluten Free Pantry, that I get at Whole Foods.

I'm new to the board, so I am little confussed as to how to make a new discussion post :unsure: But anyways.. my questions are, has anyone had difficulty eating at outback or wendy's from their gluten-free menus. I am a severely sensitve celiac and I also do not eat dairy or soy. I used to eat at mc. donalds and chippoltes from their gluten-free list but have gotten sick many times, so the only place I trust now is PF changs and I have not tried wendys or outback. So I was just wondering if this would be a wise desicion to try them or not. I figure outback is safer than wendys because its a nicer reasturant and not a fast food reasturant where some employees really might not care. Thanks for any information you can provide me :D

Have a wonderful Gluten Free day!

Chocolate Thunder from Downunder is absolutely delicious and gluten free. My entire family loves it and they don't know the difference. We live in Colorado as well - Denver Metro area.

Wildones - what area do you live?

I am also new to the board, but wanted to share my experience. I have tried the brownie on two occasions at Outback and have gotten sick. If I stay away from the dessert I am fine otherwise with anything else I have ordered. I personally love the BBQ sauce at Outback. The manager at the one near my house will sell me some for a cheap price (cheaper than glutenfree sauce in stores) it might be something to look into. This way I know our grill is always gluten-free.

Thanks for the other tips. I didn't know about Chippoltes!

We live in Boulder, and went to the Outback in Louisville. I could have overlooked the gluten-free dessert, but I don't think so, because I was so excited about having it :P . I am getting hungry now, just typing this, I think we will have to go out to eat again soon, we are all getting really sick of our old standards here at my house.

Dessa, you may want to speak to the manager as I have noticed that the other employees were not aware of the gluten-free menu in my area either. The manager and asst manager should know about it, if not you can email the company direct through their website. www.outbacksteakhouse.com

I hope this helps.... I think that each location uses the same recipes, spices, etc.. so it should be safe, but I would speak to the manager just in case.

I go to the Outback in Littleton - Wadsworth and Bowles area - near Southwest Plaza mall. You'll have to wonder down our way sometime to eat at that Outback. Good luck.

I called back and spoke to Scott, they have the gluten-free menu on the website, but they do not have it printed in the restaurant. They will print one off just for me, if I ask for it when I go there to eat. Thanks for telling me to call back! I feel so special! :D

You can also print out a copy of the gluten-free menu online and carry it in with you to the location. I would be sure that you make them aware of your diet even if you do carry in the menu. That way they can use clean gloves and prep-areas etc.

Hi: The gluten-free Outback menu is just the regular menu but with "gluten-free" noted next to items that are ok for people with gluten intolerance. To be honest, I don't understand why Outback can't just give out the same menu to everyone and have the gluten-free notation on everyone's menu, because I think it would raise public awareness and spread the word more (for example, many people who eat there may have friends or relatives with celiac and once they know Outback does this, it would bring in more customers -- seems to be common sense...). I just had my first meal there and it was very good, but I have to say I did have a reaction last night and wondered if others have, as well -- and I did not have the brownie (grilled shrimp and the rack of lamb, w/o sauce). I'd love to go back because it was enjoyable for all of us and a relief not to have to figure out the menu on my own, but if I don't feel well afterwards it's obviously not going to be worth it. I've only been gluten-free a few months and didn't think I was that sensitive but now I'm wondering if some cross-contamination in the kitchen would be enough to make me feel ill.

I asked the waitress for the gluten-free menu, and then when she started to take my order, she said: "No gluten. So that means you're diabetic, huh?" (But then she knew enough to say "no croutons on your salad, right?") So my feeling is that maybe they're not all that careful in the kitchen, and the wait staff is probably not educated about gluten intolerance. In that case, just offering the menu is not enough. Even though I certainly appreciate the attempt, and it was so great to go out for Mother's Day and have a good meal I didn't cook myself!.

My kids and I went out of town Friday night. We had read that the Outback Steakhouse had a gluten-free menu so we decided to try it. Fortunately the young man that waited on us knew what we were talking about as he had worked in another town where a couple of celiacs used to frequent. No they didn't have a menu. He went back to the chefs and they had NO idea what he was talking about. Someone went on line and printed out a menu for me. Half of the stuff they didn't even have. I just ordere a steak with nothing on it and a salad with vinegar and oil. Forgot to tell him NO crutons or cheese. I picked the crutons off and didn't worry about the cheese (just trying to go without to see how I do). I know there were still crumbs. Haven't been formally diagnosed yet and when I do I'll have to be strictrer such as sending the salad back. The young man that waited on us was great and got a good tip. Just thought I'd pass that along in case someone else went there. This one was in Modesto, Calif. Hugs, Carol B

You're not alone! I called the one in Springdale, Ar. and was told that they don't have a gluten-free menu either. It was very disappointing as our daughter always takes us out to dinner for our birthdays and since my diagnosis, that was the place she wanted to go to. We decided to just stay home and she cooked for us. It was nice but didn't give her the break she deserves. Anyway, I too felt deprived but I didn't ask to speak to the manager, as suggested, so I may call them back. I'd LOVE to try the Thunder Down Under!! Granny

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Wow, a nice place to eat out! I guess that's where we'll try next. I printed out the menu, so I can take it with me. I'm sure it will help them with a few items, at least.

I haven't read down this list yet, but see where someone mentioned Wendy's. Do they do gluten-free? I figured one could get their salad and baked potato, but are there other things?

    • Thanks for the thoughtful replies, everybody!  I want to highlight that it's just been almost 4 weeks since I've eliminated gluten (and I've been very strict about it) - prior, I could eat gluten with no issues that like this. A sandwich would rob me of energy, but not in a way I could associate with having eaten the sandwich. How insane that four weeks off of gluten could produce this new exposure reaction for me   1.5 weeks into being gluten-free I felt well enough to taper off my OCD meds and so, while I haven had had any noticible negative reactions, SSRI withdrawals can resemble gluten exposure (although the symptoms I don't think are often delayed) - so I wonder if a weird mix is happening there.  And also... I'm mostly just stunned that my body could react so extremely now to what it used to take with relative ease a mere 26ish days ago. It's good to know this is an actual thing and not me being dramatic about my new eating regimen.   It literally feels like death and like I'll never getting through it - but I'm staying reasonable about it and woke up this morning feeling less terrible (although I've had to make several trips to the bathroom - tmi I know).  Thanks so much!
    • Would like to add to this- while eating gluten I would get a random hive here or there. Since giving up gluten a few days ago, I've had a hive pop up yesterday and today. I'm at such a loss as to why I'm feeling worse. Is this some sort of detox? Is this something experienced by others?
    • Isn't it bliss to be able to eat normal food again!  And yet - things can't be right yet, as like you, I pay for it later.  The sparkling wine was a real surprise to me: I don't like alcohol normally and I drank it to be sociable - if alcohol has this affect on others with gastritis, I now understand why the last consultant I saw asked if I drank.  She was obviously going to tell me to stop!  What an irritant! I've got a month until I need to come off Zantac, so I need to stop these treats.  Partly I upped my intake of normal food as I was concerned about weight loss.  It showed me that yes, my weight will hold or go up if I eat more fat, so I think it is only that which is causing the weight to come off.  At least, I hope it is. Still, at my age I don't want too lose too much - I have a fear it will make me look like a prune!   Stress continues to be a factor for me which ain't helping. But I'm determined to beat this!  
    • Awww Jhern...I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  (((((Hugs))))) Please ask your Dr for a full thyroid panel to get a complete picture.  That includes TSH, free T4, free T3, TPOAb and TgAb...the last 2 are antibodies.  With a TSH that high, I would feel terrible...tired and achy for sure.  Most people, including me, feel best with their TSH around 1.  Some labs show an outdated range of .5-4.5.  I would bet that you would benefit from some thyroid medication. The weight gain could be from healing and absorbing nutrients too. I hope you get some answers and start feeling better soon!
    • Yes, elevated intra-epithelial lymphocytosis is a possible indication of Celiac disease. That’s what my biopsy said. “Moderate to marked villous blunting with moderate to marked intra-epithelial lymphocytosis and marked chronic inflammation of lamina propia….characteristic for untreated celiac…” What we are finding out about these medicines is incredible. I knew that it could damage the kidneys, and can cause fluid retention. It’s good you posted here. Yes, usually the order is indeed blood tests first then biopsy, but oh well. My own thinking about autoimmunity is starting to evolve more and more to incorporate the ideas of Dr Terry Wahls, namely that there is little real difference between the various chronic diseases, that at bottom, it all comes down to cellular health. "Cells need certain nutrients in order to do their work, otherwise they begin to malfunction, even die." “When you look at chronic disease on a cellular and molecular level, we see it’s all the same disease – too much oxidative stress, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies, toxins that are present. We see it in mental health, neurodegeneration, autoimmunity. It’s remarkably similar. Treat at the cellular level.” Dr Terry Wahls. Plumbago
