Unbelievable experience! We hardly ever eat local because I am so sensitive to gluten, dairy, and soy. Took a chance on Big Shanty and it was delicious! The owner talked with me through ingredients and was herself gluten free so she knew exactly what she was talking about. So blown away by such a delicious meal!
Amazing staff, super knowledgeable, EVEN HAVE GF DESSERTS, y’all!!!! Whole menu is GF except regular bread and buns, have GF bread also, Banana pudding is the only other thing not GF except on days with Mac and cheese. WOW!!
This place is great! The meats and sauce are all gluten free. Brisket was really good and tender and the sauce had a little kick to. So a ton of flavor!
Much of the menu is gluten-free and they offer gluten-free bread and desserts.
One of the beat bbq places I have eaten. The staff all seem to be knowledgeable about gluten cross contamination. Have never gotten sick after eating here.
When we eat here everyone is happy. My son is a bit of a picky eater and doesn't care for bbq but they make the best gf grilled cheese we have ever had! Hubby and I love the turkey ribs. Everything here is great!
Love it here! They even sometimes have GF dessert!
Amazing brisket and many gf options
This is by far our favorite place to eat! One of the owners is a Celiac so almost everything is GF. They have bread, desserts but they're BBQ is killer! My hubby loves their brisket and says it's the closest thing around here he can find to the real stuff in Texas. The turkey ribs and then lemon blueberry crumble dessert are my favorites but even their sides are delicious!
Amazing brisket, friendly helpful customer service, definitely a Celiac friendly place to eat.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
One of the owners is Celiac. They have GF bread and desserts along with all the traditional BBQ stuff! Always yummy!
This was amazing! Almost everything was GF. They had GF options for everything!
Great place to eat and very safe!
Knowledgeable and super tender!
The best bbq you will ever eat. They catered my rehearsal dinner. I am never disappointed when I come here.
The food was good including gf bread made on site. All but two items on the menu were gluten free and I didn't have to train the staff on safe handling of my food! It is amazing to feel that level of safety at a roadside bbq joint.
Great food, and very knowledgable about gluten free options. Thank you for a great, safe dining experience!
Always great food! Great service too. I have a high level of confidence in their gf products.
Consistent perfect as the owner and chef have Celiac! The open kitchen shows off their cleanliness and they even have a gluten free dessert every day!
The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Their food is delicious. It's so nice to hear them say, "My family is gluten-free, *you are safe here*"
Service was awesome. Food was even better! They had gluten free bread along side my meal and even GF apple crisp for desert! (Which, by the way, was to die for!!!). We will, for sure, be going back!!!
All meats, rubs, sauces, and all but one of the sides are gluten free. They even have gluten free bread and dessert. Tell them you are gluten free and they will assemble your plate in a location well away from the regular bread storage. I thought the ribs and brisket were great! As were the baked beans and collards. Not so much a fan of the pulled pork, but I grew up eating Lexington, NC pork BBQ.
The bbq was amazing and I had the most delicious piece of strawberry pound cake. I will definitely be coming back.
Get the pulled pork! We got a sampler platter and liked it the best. GF bread is awesome too.
This place is a favorite! I had the brisket, potato salad, and baked beans. Not to mention a delicious gluten free blueberry cobbler! Thanks guys!!
So many gluten & dairy free choices! Potato salad & baked beans are great! Apple crisp is the best I have ever tasted!! They are so helpful and nice here. Tell them your allergens and they will help you. I don't have reactions.
The ribs were the best part. The pulled pork left a lot to be desired. The (white meat)chicken was over cooked and dry with NO flavor to the skin. The kicker was that we selected this place because of the gluten free bread...which I don't even get to eat because 'we're currently out and it will be out of the Oven in around 30 minutes'....how does this happen at 1245pm when there are only 2 other cars in the parking lot? Weak.
Food was great and even apple crisp yummy owner is celiac so you know your safe
One of the owners is Celiac, needless to say the place was awesome! Food & service as well as knowledge!! Oh and a large GF menu too!
Really great restaurant! Delightful rustic atmosphere, friendly staff and dining in the dining room, out on the enclosed porch, al fresco or carry-out. The smoked beans are a must-have. Homemade sides and desserts are great! They are very gluten-free knowledge (family member has CD). We go here often.
They are so friendly here! I never write reviews but I'm very impressed. Since "CD" Been so long since I had cheese cake and the flavor is awesome plus it was a bonus since I don't eat pork that they offered other options than just chicken, my turkey ribs are amazing! My new fav!
Had lunch today. Beef brisket on GF bread. Yummy!! Also had GF berry cobbler!! It was so good to eat cobbler again.
The owners wife has celiac disease so its very trustworthy. They have daily gluten free bread!
