I loved this place pre-diagnosis... Ate here yesterday after an event at the convention center and thought I would be safe just getting pulled pork. They say all their meats, rubs and sauces are gluten free, so I just got pulled pork and sauce. Well I was definitely glutened/ cross contaminated :(

I ate here for am interview dinner, food was good and I felt fine. I'm fairly sensitive but some days I can get away with more so who knows what this place will hold in store on a return visit.

Bear’s is NOT gluten free- they DO NOT have A dedicated fryer. The chicken is smoked but they warm the chicken in the fryer.

Unfortunately cross contamination is everywhere and the staff is not trained to deal with it in any manner.

Love the food but it isn't safe for Celiac's.

The food is amazing, and all the meats are gluten free (except the meatballs and anything breaded). They are not cautious about cross contamination (i.e. there do not seem to be any procedures in place to change gloves or avoid cross contamination from the bread), but I have not gotten sick.
