Amazing experience, the owner is amazing and she makes the BBQ sauce from scratch with no gluten! Meat is amazing, a ton of options!

From a gluten free perspective it seemed fine. The owner seemed lovely and was very kind.

Unfortunately the food just wasn’t very good. And was quite expensive for a lunch spot

Quaint place just off the beaten path of cannery row. Skip the touristy restaurants and visit Lighthouse Smokehouse for great BBQ! Most offerings are gf even the red beans and rice.

No Gluten-free menu; however, the owner/staff is knowledgeable about gluten. We (my wife and I) ordered the combo plate of tri-tip, ribs, and chicken with a side of potato salad and roasted veggies. Next time, I would order more veggies and less meat, as the sides are small and the meat portions are big. FYI, look out for the Russian Grandmother/owner, she speaks her mind. The vibe in the restaurant is inviting old school bar with 1970’s albums on the wall. Great music was playing at a bar volume.

Called for info and the woman said that most of the stuff did not contain gluten (like most BBQ places). We got the #2 combo and it was the best brisket and chicken. All sauces are GF. They did have cornbread ruffians but packed it in a separate container for me. They seemed to take my daughters allergies seriously and my daughter had NO reaction.

Excellent service and very friendly staff. Lots of gluten-free options, just be sure to check with the wait staff to ask. The cabbage rolls from their specials were fantastic!

Wonderful little hole-in-the-wall place. Food is delicious - had brisket & fresh roasted veggies. Everything made fresh and owner carefully went over the menu to explain what was gluten free and safe. Highly recommend!

Cute Mom and Pop with a neat a really neat atmosphere. I had stuffed cabbage rolls from the Chef’s Specials menu. They were excellent. We were there for a late lunch and were the only customers in the restaurant, so I was able to ask what I needed to. I am Comfortable that despite it not being a GF establishment, they understand cross contact. I did not get sick, and food was delicious.

Husband and I shared 3 meats, 2 sides. Brisket, ribs, tritip, grilled veggies, and cole slaw, and cornbread muffin (husband ate the cornbread). Veggies were my fave part.. Only thing we will ask next time is for the bbq sauce very light, or on the side, they were WAY too drenched for our taste, I really would prefer to taste the meat, not the sauce. Otherwise nice people, great service.

They are a Gluten free and Keto Friendly business they use no flower in any of their products besides no bread substitutions for sandwiches and the gumbo are the only non gluten options. The rest of the menu is gluten free and is amazing! Best restaurant in Monterey so far.
