Super delicious bbq and pretty safe. They have a GF menu and allergens list. All the sauces and meats are GF! I’ve eaten here a couple of times and have never had a problem.

Good barbecue and understood gluten free. Offered an additional side in lieu of bread. I’m not sever celiac, but seemed well versed in GF.

We had lunch here today & loved it. All the BBQ sauces I got to go with my smoked turkey were GF, & it was fun to try them all. Because I didn’t get a bun or other bread, I got an extra side, & they were all great!

They brought me an allergy book on request. The waitress was very knowledgeable and answered my questions. I got the brisket, potato salad, and coleslaw. Delicious. All meats GF except burnt ends.

Staff was familiar with the term gluten free, and offered the option of an alternative side instead of the usual bread with dinner. Most items are gluten-free, and the food was good!

I am a symptomatic Celiac. I ate here and within 10 minutes started vomiting. We designated gluten free on our order so it must have been major cross contamination.

Great BBQ and gluten free sides! Most of their meats are gluten free, all sauces are gluten free, and they have a big selection of sides. One of my favorite places!

Slow service, ordered no garlic bread baked beans instead - received garlic bread and no beans. They did manage to keep the cheese off my salad and potato. Took way too long for what I got. Do not recommend.

Very good establishment. Nice people and good food. Between the two we both ordered off the separate GF menu. We ordered chicken, burnt ends and loaded baked potatoes. Wonderful. If anything I wish they had a bar but that's just personal preference.
