    Delicious & had a GF menu, but I had a reaction to my dish. I got the pork with baked beans & mashed potatoes.

    Really great bbq and they have a gluten free menu. All of the sauces are gf but be careful because they will say they will be careful and bring everything on a separate plate.... but then the corn bread was on it touching my food. Mention no corn bread if you are celiac.

    GF menu is available. Staff not super knowledgable but aware and helpful for food allergies and celiac. My daughter had the honey chicken wings and was fine. The dinner plates seem to come with a piece of corn bread. I didn't get a chance to ask if it was GF or not. Corn bread was not specifically listed on the Gf menu. So make sure to confirm to avoid sending a plate back. Hoisin chicken wings are listed on the GF menu which surprised me since hoisin sauce is typically not GF.

    Great gf BBQ food. Restaurant has dedicated gf menu that is pretty comprehensive in terms of menu options. The one thing is that they will sometimes put corn bread on the dish (which is not gf ). Just ask the server to not put it on.

    They have a large gluten free menu with many BBQ items but watch out. First they served me mac and cheese (NOT gluten free) and I had to explain that mac and cheese was not gluten free. Then when they served me my new meal, my pulled pork had a piece of mac and cheese in it, suggesting they just moved my other meal to a new plate. I tried to explain the issue of cross contamination to them but my waiter did not understand.

    their gluten free menu is basically wings or a sandwich with no bun. But there is a separate menu and the sauces are delicious.

    they had two sided gf menu :) And the first place I've ever been too that brought my food out separately knowing I had an "allergy". Also didn't have to explain my Celiac's at all, just said gluten free and they understood

    Food good. Large beer selection of no use to Celiacs. Last visit, found pasta mixed into the supposed gluten-free pulled-pork. Another in our party was glutened. Don't believe they take GF seriously here.

    Dined there on Sunday, 10/11/15 for daughter's birthday. Two of three celiacs were glutened! Son had MACARONIS IN HIS PULLED PORK! He ordered the 'bad a-- pulled pork plate' and got 'bad a--', alright! ugh! The two who were glutened spent the night miserable. The waitress & kitchen & manager were non-chalant about the whole thing. VERY disappointing experience as we have enjoyed Dinosaur BBQ here and in Rochester multiple times with no problems. But now? Now their GF efforts seem to be merely a nod to the fad GF-ers. This is insufficient and very upsetting. Heavy, woeful, sigh.....

    Delicious. All of their meats are gf. They have a list of the items that aren't gf and it's the usual suspects. The ribs are amazing. The server told us he would put the corn bread on a different plate so they are trained and knowledgeable.

    They have a gf menu with lots of options and staff seem to be knowledgeable. HOWEVER, I somehow got cross contaminated because I felt really sick about 2 hours after eating there. I would only go here if your gluten sensitive, not celiac. Overall the food was great though.

    Stopped by this restaurant while I was shopping in the area. I was impressed by their GF menu although they do not have GF buns for sandwiches. I did not feel like I was missing out not have a bun at all. It is a huge stack of meat with a couple sides. The manager told me all BBQ sauces are safe. The fries are even safe! Their lemonade goes perfect with the BBQ. I have been back since and was just as impressed.

    Great food and great service. Beware of the sides, though. My gluten free beans were full of gluten macaroni. They must be very close together in the kitchen. Just keep this in mind when making your side selection.

    When I asked for a GF menu, server proactively asked if I had Celiac. The order was flagged and came out on a separate colored plate. Made me feel very comfortable. And they have Red Bridge.

    Had a sampler, pulled pork was OK, brisket was good, ribs are amazing, best I've had anywhere. I'll come back again just for ribs. Gluten free meals go on a red plate to be sure they don't cross contaminate in the back.

    Don't be turned off by appearances. It is loud, our kids were a bit unnerved by the seediness of the location and bar atmosphere, but all agreed it was the juiciest BBQ we ever had. Great gf French fries and awesome cole slaw, served by a somewhat surly beer wench who was nonetheless well trained in what gf means. Owner Dino presiding over all from a stool near the bar was another touch of character! We will be back!!

    Great GF food but this place gets ridiculously crowded. I went on a Monday night but we had to wait 2 hours for a table. if you're lucky, you might be able to sit on the bar without waiting.
