Staff was knowledgeable about gluten free options but nothing gf was listed in the menu. The food was bland and mediocre at best. I got the pork plate with little bbq flavor. Service wasn’t so good either as we waited a while.

We had dinner at Bennett’s. The food was wonderful. I had the 25$ Texas Sampler and I couldn’t even finish it. In addition to being gluten free I also follow a carnivore lifestyle for autoimmune healing so I eat only meat. Every meat minus the hog legs (which is cooked in a shared fryer) is gluten free. I had brisket, chicken leg, burnt ends, pulled pork and ribs. The burnt ends are the best I’ve ever had and are absolutely worth the two dollar upgrade. I tasted the baked beans and green beans before sending them off to a son to finish. They were both wonderfully seasoned and cooked just right. The manager came over without being requested to discuss all of my concerns of food allergies. She said they wipe down the prep area as needed and change gloves to avoid cross contamination. We will definitely be back again. We really enjoyed our meal!

My daughter and I are both celiac. When we visited, the waitress brought the manager to the table to clarify which sides we're gluten free. We had the brisket with green beans, baked beans and coleslaw. I had the spicy BBQ sauce and my daughter had the house sauce. Both were very good. The portions were small. While I did feel safe eating there and neither of us got sick, it was really just average tourist food.

We had a wonderful experience at Bennett’s!! Our 4 y/o has celiac. We asked for the allergy menu and our server, Jen, immediately notified a manager who promptly came to our table and was very knowledgeable about the gf options. All the meats and sauces are gf and he loved the pulled pork. He couldn’t eat the dirt and worms that comes with the kids meal, but the server was sweet enough to bring us the bag of gummy worms to show us that they were also gf and gave him a whole plate of them. We felt very comfortable eating there and had a great experience!

The staff was very informed in regards to Gluten Free, Even knew which sauces I could and could not have.but over all it was not my favorite BBQ place. Had the brisket, smoked sausage and pulled pork with the salad bar.

Hostess and staff well informed. Gave me a list of ingredients/allergens in their whole menu, making it easy to order. They even knew that the Worcestershire sauce in the BBQ sauce was GF! I had smoked chicken, baked potato and coke slaw. Very tasty and I was fine.

Enjoyed the BBQ pork shoulder, baked potato, and coleslaw and did not get sick. The restaurant has a detailed allergy menu that is extremely helpful in ordering (includes sauces and seasonings), and the hostess staff is helpful regarding your Celiac. However, I had to get past the waitress who declared, in a really strong southern accent, “Oh, lawd, one of those!” when I told her I was Celiac. I guess you have to expect that in the South.

The staff here is amazing. When I told my server I have a gluten allergy, she immediately sent over the manager who went over everything with me and answered all questions. They took special care to make sure that the bread was served separately. My husband and I split a meal, so one of the sides he ordered was not GF, and the kitchen manager came to double check with me to make sure I knew that it was not safe for me to eat. They took great care to make sure my dietary needs were met, and the food was delicious too!

Absolutely amazing. They don’t have an exact gf menu but the manager was able to give me a list of ingredients and walk me though what was gf. She didn’t have to even look it up. They took me seriously from the start. No sickness and I feel great. The gm talked to me as well about the company and how they are with allergies. Simply amazing

They do not have a separate gluten free menu, but the managers are very helpful and knowledgeable about what is safe. All BBQ sauce except the mustard is GF (due to soy sauce), and almost all of the meats were GF. I had ribs, a baked potato, and baked beans. Did not get sick and I’m celiac. Do NOT have a dedicated fryer and are super up front about that. They have angry orchard (bottled) :) I did not feel like I was an inconvenience to them, which was HUGE to me!

Very knowledgeable staff, the hostess and waitress were both very attentive to our gluten-free needs. The hostess came over and showed me which bbq sauce I could not have. There were still 3 other options of bbq sauces that were gluten free. All of the meats were gluten free and many of the sides. The food was delicious and I felt very safe eating here!

I have celiac and am super sensitive to cross contamination. The server helped me order and the manager made sure to go as far as to cut my baked potato with a clean knife himself. I was very impressed. I had the BBQ chicken, dry, with baked potato and potato salad.

Waitress knew the items I definitely couldn’t have. I asked for glove changes etc. First plate they brought me had bread on top of all my food. Sent it back and specifically told them it had to be made new not just removed. Ate the second plate (against my better judgement). Ended up super sick and miserable the rest of the day.

Waitress immediately brought manager over when I began asking about gluten-free options. She was able to inform me verbally in addition to handing me a printed list of ingredients for their menu items and sauces. As most restaurants, she gave the caveat regarding possible cross-contamination in the shared kitchen. My son has the most serious reactivity as he is anaphylactic to wheat, while I do not have confirmed celiac but an intolerance, for sure. We had plenty of choices. All meats. 3 of the 4 bbq sauces. Green beans, Cole slaw, bbq beans, etc. Food was good, and we ate without negative reactions.

As soon as we said gluten allergy, the waitress got the manager. The manager knew exactly what gluten was and what all it can be in (including soy sauce). He said anything fried is a no because of shared fryers. But the bbq was safe and all the sauces except for one. The green beans and apple sauce were safe. There was probably more safe options, but this was for my 5 yr old, so we just stuck with the options we knew she would eat. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because they didn’t have anything about allergies listed on their menu.
