DO NOT TRUST THE GLUTEN FREE MARKERS ON THE MENU!!!! After inquiring about several of the items marked “gluten free”, it became clear that they are definitely NOT celiac-safe (potato skins, fries, etc. are dunked in the same fryer as breaded “gluten” items, the dressing on the Caesar salad wasn’t able to be conformed gluten free, etc). The biggest red flags to me are that unless you specify not to, they will toast your gluten free bun in the same toaster as the regular buns, and they couldn’t confirm that their signature barbecue sauce that’s on most of their meats is actually gluten free (it contains Worcester sauce as an ingredient). All of these items are labeled as gluten free on their menu. After further investigating the barbecue sauce, I canceled my order for the pulled pork sandwich and got a side salad with vinegar & oil. Due to the exchanges I had with the server and the various miscommunications about the menu, I was terrified the entire time I was eating, although thankfully I did not get sick. The risk wasn’t worth the convenience of eating with the rest of my group. I won’t be returning.
