If you read it very carefully, they do not say that they do not have any peanut ingredients. They say that they do not have any peanuts or peanut oils but they do have a peanut sauce.
FYI: Check with your local restaurant though. Ours doesn't even list the Bonzer salad on the menu.

[b]I'm so shocked!! It seems like every time I check this thread one of my favorite restaurants is on it for saying that they use peanut oil. Chili's, the Olive Garden, now the Outback...personally I have been eating at these restaurants in different locations all over the country for several years and I've never encountered a problem.[/b]
I've eaten at Chili's, The Olive Garden, and Outback many times as well [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I've never had any problems at all.

MimiM, you are right, I could swear I read the word ingredient there but I was mistaken... I am sorry if I got anybody else confused too.
We have never had problems either at Outback or Chilis, but my son only eats Mac&Cheese when we go out... It's his thing...

Just called Outback H.O. in Ontario. He said the Bonzer Salad and the Q salad contain almonds.
They do not have any "peanuts" but stay away from the desserts because they may contain.
He said that they have many calls from p.a. people,and there has never been a situation. He said to tell the server and she will take all the necessary precautions.
I will try it tonight (that's if my son wants his birthday dinner there.)

We love, love, love Outback Steakhouse! We are in the U.S.
I've found the one near us has always been very careful re: peanut and tree nut allergies.
We just don't let dd have salad or dessert because they have some salads and desserts with nuts.
They seem very allergy aware at this place.

Yesterday I was at a meeting at work, and I ran into a VP for the parent company of Outback. I was able to talk with him about food allergy concerns, especially peanut allergies. I conveyed that it seemed that generally people on our board reported awareness among the staff at the restaurant.
He said that they have made a concious effort to become more aware and have discussed the seriousness of peanut allergy it at meetings. He was also rather proud of the fact that all but one of their offerings are gluten free. Their company owns a line of Asian restaurants that most likely none of us will go to, but it's nice to know that they are MSG free, as well. I have a sensitivity to that.

Just so you know, Outback has a gluten free menu and many of their items are gluten free but its not all items but one... there are more then one that are breaded and can't be eaten by people avoiding gluten. (I know I have Celiac disease and can't ever eat any gluten).
At any rate they have their gluten free menu online and all the restaurants owned by this company have gluten free menus.

We ended up going to Mr. Sub. My son didn't want to go to the Outback for his birthday. I will try it someday. I think he is still a little worried about the salads.

We finally went to the Outback Restaurant. We had no problems whatsoever.
The waitress was wonderful. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
We did stay clear of all desserts though. No peanuts, but they had almonds.
