    Staff was very helpful and careful with my dinner. Pulled chicken and coleslaw were delicious.

    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!

    Server was knowledgeable, manager also came out to clarify the allergy. They were meticulous about making sure no cross contamination occurred. BBQ was great, tons of options, plus a salad bar. We were very pleased with our meals and the service!!!

    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.

    Terrible service. They served me bread when I said not to. Food didn't taste good either.

    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.

    Food was delicious. The menu was not the most specific. They had a list of the ingredients in each food item. I have Celiac and did not get sick.

    Waiter provided an allergy menu. Wasn't very comfortable answering guestions however, they allergy menu provided ingredients and details. We were able to figure it out and daughter enjoyed her meal without getting sick.

    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.
