    Awesome BBQ. Pulled pork, turkey, chicken and beef. A lot of gluten free options. My kids also love Bandanas. Ask them to hold the french bread and ask for another GF side.

    Good food. Good choices for gluten free. The staff are very assuring about the safety of not cross contaminating the gluten free diner.

    Yeah, I can still have bbq! The staff asked questions to better understand why so many are now asking for the GF menu. After I explained my story, the hostess was surprised to find out that something like flour could make someone really really sick.

    Tried the soup on the gluten free menu and explained that I have celiac disease and needed them to be extra cautious. The next morning I woke up with the rash and nerve pain that I always get after eating gluten. This place is not safe for celiacs.

    omgosh delicious! The staff was very nice especially considering we showed up an hour before closing. All their bbq sauces are gluten free and the meat is real country bbq since they have their own smoke house that just draws you in. amazing

    GF menu is available online. I don't know if they have one in the restaurant, because I used the online one. Lots of choices, and I didn't have the problem others did with the bread on the plate. However, when the server made a mistake with a side, she grabbed the side dish, then came back with another, holding it with her hand over the food, which didn't seem sanitary. I wouldn't think they're careful enough to make it safe for celiac, which is a shame, because it could be a haven for GF folks!

    These people working here were fantastic! They helped us look thru all their ingredients to figure out what we could have and turns out we could have many items. They gave us a substitute side for the bread! Awesome!

    Have eaten here several times without getting sick. Luncheon turkey dinner with potato salad, barbecue beans and side salad with the lemon dressing. I always let the server know I have celiac disease and ask that he/she request the kitchen staff to use new gloves. They always seem to be knowledgeable about allergies.

    When I asked the waitress if they had a gluten free menu, she enthusiastically replied that they did and produced what I thought to be an extensive gf menu for my corner of the world. The food was hot and tasty. The wide selection of BBQ sauces were all gluten free. I learned there is a location in Carbondale, IL, and I will visit that location when I'm there.

    I found this little gem while driving along I-64 towards Missouri. The smell was awesome and staff was super friendly. I timidly asked if they had anyone come in with gluten allergies expecting a blank stare and what I got was an enthusiastic yes and they have a specific gf menu and most everything here is gf! The portions were large and reasonably priced. I had the pulled chicken and pulled pork with sweet corn and loaded baked potato. I was in heaven with my first bite. Everything was absolutely mouthwatering. Several sauces to chose from too. I am so glad I took a chance and stopped by.

    I got glutened. It wasn't entirely their fault, but I wish they were better trained. I didn't realize the family meal we ordered would be on one platter and the garlic bread would be on top of my meat. My four year old was melting down so I didn't try to get it fixed. I will eat there again, but I don't trust the staff to catch cross contamination issues.

    They have GF menu. Good experience at St. Louis & Osage Beach locations. Please be careful at the Carbondale location. Ordered off GF menu & told waitress twice we have gluten allergy & absolutely no bread. Food came out with two pieces of bread on top. She then argued with me saying 'baked potatoes aren't gluten free' Food was sent back & new plate given. My daughter still ended up very sick later that day.

    They have a dedicated gluten-free menu, and the food is very good. Many of the items on the regular menu are naturally gluten-free except for the bread, breaded items and the fried items. As a bonus, they allowed me to order a third side dish in place of the garlic toast that normally came with my meal!

    Fantastic option. Almost everything on the menu is gluten free (ALL of those sauces, meats, and most of their sides). Every time we tell them no garlic bread because of my husband's gluten issues, they not only offer him an additional side, but the manager has frequently come out to discuss the options if he has a concern. No separate GF menu, but no need since most items are safe and staff/mgmt are very knowledgable.
