    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
