    Everything but the bread is gluten free, just make sure you tell them or you'll get bread under your meat. I think the appetizers also come with crackers but I didn't order any. It's so nice to be able to go to a restaurant and just order anything without having to worry about it. The food was good, but not mind blowing. So heavy on the vinegar that it gave me heartburn, but I know that's a style of barbecue, just not my favorite.

    I don't know what it is, can't put a finger on it. Every time I eat here I get glutened. I ask and am assured that what I order is all gluten free. I read the label on the sauces and am careful about ordering. I know it is an iconic landmark. Won't go back. More for the rest of you, I guess.

    Food was great, Celiac friendly! However, I ordered ribs and brisket, but underneath the brisket was a piece of bread that I didn't discover until I was 3/4 way through the meal. The menu states "bread upon request."

    Walked in and thought "there is no way this place is safe for me to eat in!" but I'm glad I was wrong. Literally everything is safe except bread and beer, so just make it clear when you order and they do well! A legit Memphis staple too!

    While the food is gf it clearly states bread available on request. unfortunately they served every plate with bread so they had to be sent back and remade.

    Per wait staff "everything is gluten free except the bread." They have a good understanding of gluten intolerance and, conveniently, don't have it in their food. Quick service and large portions. Not the best BBQ, but good and safe. tl;dr - everything but the bread is safe, quick service, good BBQ, would visit again

    They were very friendly, everything on the menu is gluten free minus the bread of course. Our waiter was knowledgeable and extremely fast. Wish you could bottle the smells!

    The most amazing and delicious bbq ribs! Our waiter, the famous Robert Sr, took care of my GF needs and I didn't have any reactions. Beans were great and Cole slaw was interestingly spicy!

    AMAZING barbecue, most options GF :-) Be sure to let them know about your allergy, as there can be some surprise gluten (my husband's brisket came on a slice of bread, although he's not GF so it wasn't an issue). Ribs and baked beans were great, though!

    Just tell them about your allergy. Good is amazing, but get there early to avoid a long wait.

    The ribs were delicious and the sauces were gluten free as well. Would definitely recommend.

    Really great BBQ, just ask for no bread and say that you are gluten free and they will make sure your food doesn't get contaminated. All of their delicious sauces are gluten free as is. Get the beans cause they are amazing (they come with pork in it). I wouldn't say that they have a completely gluten free kitchen but I am very sensitive and didn't have a problem with this restaurant.
