Gluten Intolerant

Overall Rating

I’ve been here a handful of times and have not gotten sick. The staff is knowledgeable and will double check allergen info for you! For example, I put in an order for nachos and noted that I have celiac, and they called me to let me know that the chips are fried in the same oil as the breaded items. There’s only one sauce that has gluten (the Chicago one) but otherwise you can try the others at the table. The food itself isn’t my favorite but it’s still nice to go somewhere that you don’t get sick.

Good BBQ. Had a separate allergen list. My son and I had the nachos, which were good. Wish they had a GF bun which would have given more options.

I’m a celiac of 25 years. Highly sensitive. I just ate the best bbq ever! I had the burnt ends, elotes and coleslaw. Absolutely amazing. Will be going back! Three hours later and still NOT sick. I usually know within 30 minutes. Go there!

I haven’t had barbecue in forever and this place was great! I walked in and asked if they had an allergen menu, the lady was quick to pull out this this cheat sheet for a bunch of different allergens/diets. There’s not much that contains gluten. I ordered the brisket platter w/o Texas toast and added elote. The platter comes with pickles, coleslaw, and pickled onions. Once I got my food, there were a bunch of different sauces on the table to choose from all named after different cities (the Chicago sauce is the only one that contains gluten). I recommend the Memphis sauce. Would definitely come back here again.

Been there a few times! Great GF bbq menu. Chef and staff were knowledgeable about celiac and using fresh gloves. They also made sure to go thru all the sauces in the bbq sauce caddy and what I could enjoy (one of them was not gf). 10/10 recommend!

I ordered through the app and thought that I had eaten the fries there before. Someone from the restaurant noticed my gluten allergy and called to let me know that the fries were not safe. I appreciate that attention to detail he offered to replace the fries with baked beans which was delicious.

Outstanding. Had burnt ends in a delicious salad. Slaw was fantastic. Only 1 of the 6 BBQ sauces has gluten. Ready in 5 minutes.

This place is AMAZING!! I eat here all the time and never get sick. They have a allergen menu you can ask for at the cashier and it lists multiple types of common allergies and what to avoid. Anything that is fried in the fryer is NOT gluten free due to cross contamination. This includes the brussle sprouts. They have 6 different types of BBQ sauce to try, however the Chicago style is NOT GF due to it containing beer.
