The food is fantastic! The only thing I couldn't have being celiac is the bun...the 'pie' (bowl option) is so good you wouldn't have wanted a regular sandwich anyway. The owner is old school even chops his own wood for his smoker! The owners are a great couple who really care about their product and their customers needs. Highly recommend!!

Food was absolutely delicious

This place is really a hidden gem. Owner herself has celiac so she understands the importance of being extremely careful and the reprocussions for people if there is cross contamination. Food was delicious & service was great. Will be back for sure!

This place is unique. Restaurant is in a house and they brew their own beer in the basement. They have a gf cider and root beer which is also brewed there. Brisket, burnt ends, and potato salad were gf and delicious.

I have eaten there several times and not had a reaction . They understand about gluten concerns and are careful about CC. Food is great and there is gluten free soft drinks and hard cider.

This place is wonderful. Small, friendly, and knowledgable on their ingredients. I had the Iowa BBQ Pie, and OH MY, this might be my favorite lunch ever. There was a GF cider on the menu for those wanting an adult beverage, and while I was the only GF person in my party of 6, everyone enjoyed their lunch a lot. Thanks for the great service!

I’m highly sensitive so can tell within hours if I’ve been cross-contaminated. I ate WAAAY too much food here, and left feeling nothing more than the nausea of seriously overeating. Owner’s wife is Celiac, and while they are not a GF facility, take all precautions to avoid any cross contamination. I felt very comfortable eating here. will be back.

The owners understand celiac disease and all of their meat is gluten free, as well as some sides. They will use a clean cutting board, knife, gloves to process your order. Fabulous BBQ!!
