Review of Outback Steakhouse

3730 S. Reed Road, Kokomo, IN 46902

Overall Rating


I ordered online for carry-out. I very specifically noted in three different spots on the order (with steak, with salad, and with shrimp appetizer) Celiac - NO Gluten, please. I also requested No Toast with the Shrimp Appetizer, No Croutons with the salad, and No Bread with the order. When I opened the big bag there was a smaller bag with a loaf of bread sitting on top of the order. I wasn’t thrilled but it was in its own bag so I felt ok with the rest of the order other than the baked potato topping that were under the bread. As I got into the entree container, though, the add-on shrimp that I ordered with my steak was wrapped up in foil but sitting on a piece of toast. I get that I am taking a chance with cross contamination by eating at restaurants but I would have thought that they would be careful enough not to actually stick both a piece of toast and a loaf of bread in an order with Celiac marked all over it. Obviously they don’t take any care or pay any attention to food allergies.
