Review of Outback Steakhouse

3939 1st Ave. S.E., Cedar Rapids, IA 52401

Overall Rating


Called in a curbside pick up order so my husband could grab it on the way home. Asked if they could prevent cross-contamination as I have Celiac. The guy taking the order said that they know all about how to avoid that & would mark our order “gluten allergy” to be sure it was safe. I ordered the 6 oz sirloin & shrimp, mashed potatoes, & a house salad w/ranch. My husband got an 11 oz center cut sirloin, mashed potatoes, & fresh veggies. They left the croutons off of my salad for me, packaged everything carefully, & didn’t give my husband bread to be on the safe side. When he picked it up, they explained the lack of bread & told him they could package some up for him separately if he wanted.
