Very impressed with the outback''s variety on their gluten free menu. I had the steak & baked potato with side veg. The Thunder from down under pecan brownie is decadent. No problems, no reactions. Good choice for Celiacs

Not much to choose from and the filet wasn’t as good as other places! No appetizers other than salad. Much better steak houses

Our 9yo daughter is celiac and has been sickened at a different Outback location. She chose to eat at this Outback in Chico for her birthday dinner. Armed with our Nima we took her. The wait staff was knowledgeable and sent a manager to speak with us as well. We tested her steak and potatoes with the Nima and no gluten was found. She enjoyed her dinner and went home happy and healthy!

The staff here actually have a clue. I had a great safe steak dinner. They have a printed out gluten free menu.

Ordered the Alice Springs chicken as I had read that was a tried and true option. Ordered without bacon, came with bacon but was remade. Broccoli on the side. Thunder from down under dessert. All tasted great and no reaction.

Food was fine and they seemed to understand when I mentioned celiac. However, I don’t usually have really clear cut indicators when I get “glutened” so I can’t say for sure but I think I got glutened here. Went a few days ago and have just felt crappy since then. Eat at your own risk,

I didn’t get sick, but had to send the steak back. The first time, it came out with butter and seasoning which are not GF. The second time it was cooked perfectly. Pay close attention if you order a steak.

They have a separate GF menu. Server was knowledgeable about gluten free. Since my son does not show symptoms I am unsure about cross contamination.

Ordered a caesar salad after disclosing allergy and it came with croutons. Mistakes happen so we sent it back. Salad comes and we notice some crumbs. Ask the server if this is a new salad or if they just removed the croutons. They were told by kitchen staff it was a new salad. Turn over lettuce---sure enough there is still a crouton in the salad. A final salad is brought out without croutons, but all trust is gone. I've been to outbacks that are okay but this one really doesn't know what it is doing.

Never had a problem ordering or obtaining gluten free, and never sick so fairly confident I've not been glutened here. Updated 2019 to reduce to 3 stars. Brought salad with croutons and sandwich with bun last, said vanilla ice cream has gluten now. New wait staff not knowledgable or not paying attention. Haven’t ingested gluten but it’s been much more stressful here the last few visits.

I loved Outback before I was diagnosed, but I’ve been back twice since I was diagnosed and I’ve been glutened both times. The first time I found a piece of angel hair pasta in my salad, and the second time, I found a crouton in my salad. The waiters always seem to be knowledgeable, and the steaks seem to be okay, but I’m not entirely sure if I trust the restaurant anymore.

I normally have good luck with the GF menu. But last two times I’ve eaten at outback I have gotten really sick. 1) was the mashed potatoes on gf menu 2) was chicken

They have a separate gluten free menu to order from so be sure to ask for one. I normally order their Ribeye, baked potato and broccoli which have been delicious. I’ve also had their lobster tails, asparagus, side salad with no croutons, and twice mashed potato as well. I love their gluten free brownie/ice cream dessert!!! Overall, I love this place, their food and service has been excellent.

Do not eat here. Ever since they moved to the new location they can’t get it right. Gave it too many chances, with the manager involved every time. Still croutons, etc.

We have stopped here a couple times now on our way home from the Chicago area (where family lives). This is a fabulous Outback location, and the GF menu is great. They are very informed and understand that Celiac is serious. They even ask if it is ok if the other guests at my table eat bread and make sure they position it far away from me. This last time we visited, they allowed me to do the Aussie 4 Course with substitutions (broccoli instead of soup and a GF dessert instead of cheesecake) for a only a $2 upcharge. I was thrilled and stuffed! Great deal and accommodation for someone who never gets “the deal” because she has Celiac. Would highly recommend this location. I have never had ill effects eating here.

The staff here all knew what Celiac is, and what I needed. There is a fair number of gluten free options, and my food tasted great. I did not get sick, and I'm usually very sensitive to cross contamination.

What an awesome experience!!! I love going someplace and telling them I have a Gluten Allergy and they are like...OK. They are well educated and friendly. They have a delicious desert - The Chocolate Thunder From Down Under!!! Gluten Free and OMG... Is come here just for that. Plenty of GF options and Lilly in Dover was the best server we have had all year!

Definitely ordered things that’s we’re supposed to be gluten free and got sick. Filet, grilled shrimp and a Ceasar with no croutons. Bread was never even brought to the table per my request. Had a rash within an hour. Very sick later. Server seemed to not really care about me needing no gluten, doubt she told the kitchen.

Sadly I have to change my review. Not safe to eat here anymore. Found croutons buried inside my salad the last few times I ate here. Old review: Have stopped to eat here for many years. Very dependable. Food is your usual chain fare, unimpressive but still tasty. Make sure to ask for an experienced server.

Felt weird after I ate my meal even after telling the server specific instructions on my food since I have a gluten and soy allergy. Got a salad to go explaining the same thing. Got home to find my salad covered in croutons and got a stomach ache again from eating my leftovers from dinner so I know he didn’t specify my allergy. Have eaten at other locations without problems. Just be careful at this location.

My celiac daughter ate there twice and was sick both times. Waiter seem unconcerned and dismissive about celiac and GF. The first time brought the salad with croutons, came back with the salad without croutons and she felt sick immediately. The same happened the second visit, no croutons on the salad but sick within minutes of eating the salad. This is particular to this Terre Haute location. They must not follow procedures to avoid cc. We have had consistent no issues back in Plano TX.

UPDATE: NOT celiac friendly. This was one of a few places in the LV I would eat but they are disorganized. They do not have fries on the GF menu but said the fryer is dedicated GF. A manager confirmed...so I had been ordering them and wondered what was making me sick. Suddenly they told me they were NOT gluten free and bad things were happening in the kitchen so they were transitioning to a new kitchen manager... fast-forward and I decided to give it another try 1+ months later. They gave me a salad that had cheese picked off with residual cheese and a few small pieces left (I also can't eat dairy), but it was obvious they weren't following proper procedures for gf with fresh ingredients, changing gloves, etc. I did make a big deal about having celiac. AFTER that I alerted the manager and said my entree NEEDS to be made carefully and properly. When it was delivered the broccoli had butter all over it. The manager then made my broccoli again herself. After all this they didn't comp ANYTHING from the bill. They made me sick, I paid them $80. They are too sloppy in the kitchen, not checking themselves, getting people sick. Stay away if you have celiac and other allergies/intolerances!!

My 4 yo is newly diagnosed Celiac and this was our first restaurant experience since diagnosis. I was extremely nervous but the manager was amazing! He came and spoke directly to us and went to make sure he told his entire cook staff and our waitress the situation. The cook has already developed a plan and cooked her entire meal in a separate location to ensure no cross contamination could occur. They checked on us regularly and the manager came back out to ensure everything went well before we left! We will always visit here when we are back home! They were very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure to cater to any request or need we had!

They ARE NOT serious with their Gluten free. We had ordered salads and they gave us croutons. I was anxious about eatting the rest of the food because if they messed up with some thing as simple as salads what else did they mess up on.

Been here so many times never have had an issue (knock on wood). They have a gf menu just have to ask for it. The staff and mgr are extremely knowledgeable and aware of the dangers for patrons with celiac and gluten sensitivity. I have had their steaks, salads, seafood and veggies. I cannot eat pork or chicken so I haven't tried them.

I have never gotten sick eating at this location. If the server isn’t certain, they’ve always gone to a manager to check for me.
