We eat here often and hubby has never had a reaction. He also doesn’t do well with some cuts of meat/steak due to swallowing problems, but has no issues with their ribs or brisket - they are super tender. I’m from the land of BBQ in Texas and this is my favorite local BBQ place.

Wonderful!

We ordered for a large group, fully gf: brisket, slab of ribs, pulled pork. Both original and spicy sauce. Sides of cole slaw, potato salad, green beans, chili. Everything was delicious.

We spoke with the manager prior to ordering to confirm which menu items were GF, and what their food handling practices were. We felt safe. And both my celiac husband and 3y old daughter ate without issue.

4 stars for safety because their facility is not GF, so there is always some risk. However the gf menu is robust l, we ate safely, and we plan to return!

Good quality quick bbq, knowledgeable staff and they have a protocol for separation if you ask and all meats and sauces are gluten free and most sides.

Fryer contaminated but they know it. Just ask and it’s good!

Barbecue without a bun and a couple of side options. Sauces are GF too! Stop by Graeters next door for dessert and ask for an allergy scoop to get it from a separate area.

Had lunch here and will definitely be back, all of the meat is gf and if you tell them you have an allergy they will change gloves and leave your meat “naked”. All of the sauces are gf except for the chipotle mayo, and they do have an allergen menu that you can reference. Many of the sides are gf and the staff was knowledgeable and accommodating!
