A great option and good food. Separate gluten-free menu, and they take cross-contamination seriously. Their daily specials are often also gluten free. Our party had 3 people with Celiac disease, and they were kind, courteous, and very helpful during the entire ordering process. When they brought the food out the manager also came out to explain their whole process for avoiding cross-contamination. I've eaten here twice now and it's been great each time. Portions are huge, sauces on the wings are great, and wait staff is friendly.
If you love barbecue, you'll love this place. Off the gf menu, I had the jumbo BBQ chicken wings with the garlic chipotle sauce - delicious. I only ordered 3, but could have made a meal of just them. I then had the tres ninos which is a sampler of the BBQ brisket, ribs, and pork with 2 sides - I had rice and beans, and a tomato cucumber sauce for a total of $20 before tax. I had a hard cider that was a bit spendy at $7.50. Note: call ahead for reservations, especially on Friday night or a weekend. I was there on Friday at 7:00 pm and there was a 45 min wait for a table and it was packed with people waiting. It's a fun, boisterous place. I'll add some pictures.
Very impressed! Sauce is GF, soy-free. Fries are so popular they have their own frier; peanut-free. My waiter was easy to talk to and wasn't caught off guard by my allergies and Celiac Disease. He came back with an allergy chart and walked me through my order. Said the back changes gloves and food comes on a red plate. Manager served me to make sure it was okay.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
