G-day Mate!


No, I'm not in Australia. But I've been there and it's a beautiful country with wonderful, friendly people.

No, tonight we went "Outback". All of us. ALL 4 of us. And that included the Little Man. We love Outback. I know, I know, it's not gourmet but the food is good and the Little Man can eat safely. This is the second time we ate there (we ate at Outback on our trip to Disney) and even though I know there is only 1 thing on the menu safe for the Little Man, I still whip out my Chef Card and ask what is safe that the Little Man can have. The manager confirmed that on the Joey Menu he could have the Joey Sirloin (minus the seasoning) and steamed veggie (minus the butter) (and there is a Gluten Free Menu for those that only need to avoid Gluten).
So we had a wonderful dinner. OK, the Little Man is 4 so it wasn't without issue (he was hungry and didn't want to wait for the food, his stomach hurt, he didn't want to eat, he was tired and didn't get a nap because before this Mommy spent 2 hours shopping for jeans....) but he did eat safely and that was the MAIN goal.

So THANK YOU Outback Steakhouse for a delicious and safe meal (I had the Ahi Tuna ----YUM!)! Maybe now we can go out to eat more often and feel relatively safe taking the Little Man out to dinner.

Hi. I just thought I would let you know that I enjoy and thoroughly relate to your blog. My ten-year-old son is severely allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts, nuts, fish, shellfish, sesame seeds, raw tomato and raw peaches. Outback is wonderful. We also order the Joey sirloin (no seasoning or butter, cooked in a separate pan) with veggies (no butter,cooked separately)here in Utah. We have eaten there 10+ times and have not had any problems. Knock on wood!

Thank you for helping to pave the way in life for our children!

Hubs loves Outback and I think it is great to know that they have an allergy friendly menu and attitude!

Oh yum. I love Outback. Maybe I'll have to give them a try. Kayla loves beef too, so she may actually eat the sirloin. :)

Glad you enjoyed a dinner out.

I finally got to go to an Outback the last time Steve & I were in Niagara Falls...we don't have one here in my area. I just loved it, especially the Blooming Onion! YUMMM!! So glad to hear it's a restaurant that has safe food for your little man:-) xoxo

We had a great experience there too! Definitely an allergy friendly restaurant.
