Staff was not GF knowledgeable but very friendly. Brisket delish really worth the trip. No GF bbq sauce is a bummer. GF bun was tasty. Bags of chips for side.

Worth the wait to sit upstairs.

Good place for a quick bite to eat. Originally the hostess had answered our questions about gf options. When seated, we actually had the manager as a waiter and he corrected some of the allergy info we got from the front, contrary to what we heard, the baked beans, side salad and cole slaw are gf sides as well. No separate fryer but they do have individual bags of chips. The gf buns are soft and the meat choices are yummy.

Had an overall ok experience here. They do have a tasty GF bun. Meats are GF, but not the BBQ sauce. Also, we were told that if celiac you can't eat the baked beans. Fries are not in a dedicated fryer. Sides are limited to corn and cole slaw. Meat was very good though!

Best gluten free bun I’ve ever had! The server was extremely knowledgeable about what was gluten free and wasn’t. The pulled pork BBQ sandwich and baked beans are fantastic. Highly recommend. Edit* had to go twice it was so good! The pulled chicken sandwich, corn on the cob, and margarita with Tito’s are delish!

My daughter loved the gf buns. The pulled pork was excellent. The burger was just okay at best. My husband thought his Cuban wasn't very good. They have a coating on the fries that aren't gf. Friendly staff. Fabulous location.

Staff is knowledgeable. They have gluten free cheese burgers. The burgers were very good, but it took them 3 try’s to get our order right after a 30 minute wait to get our food at all.

The staff was knowledgeable of GF ingredients, and offered options for GF allergies. Good GF bun. BBQ sauce is not GF, nor the fries. Would recommend for a reasonably priced place, good service, GF options with a great view outside. Outdoor tables are very tiny though. Would recommend eating indoors.

Great location for a quick dinner. No GF menu but waitress was knowledgeable of menu items. No dedicated fryer for fries, which was a bummer. Overall, bbq was okay but probably will not return.

Although they don’t say so on the menu, they carry GF Rolls. BBQ sauce is GF. We shared the pulled pork nachos and I had the pulled chicken on GF bun with corn and cole slaw as my sides. It was a super busy night, but we were able to get right in and food was fantastic. Really fun atmosphere, staff was bustling around and checked in frequently and the food was awesome!
