I stopped in here for some quick BBQ, not wanting to wait in hour long lines at some of the other high profile BBQ places in Austin. There's nothing really in writing that says what is and isn't GF here. I was just going on previous posters and the quick "Yeah" confirmation from the meat cutting guy. I did not have any of the sides, but it seems that the other reviews have been consistent about what you can have. Brisket was great and I didn't get sick. I'd come here again.

Brisket was great and they knew exactly what had gluten in it and what did not. Told me everything was gluten free except for the mac & cheese and cobbler, as a previous poster said. Very informal BBQ restaurant and great food.

Everything except the cobbler and Mac& chxeese are gf. Very little worry about CC. Possibly the best brisket I’ve ever had.

Almost everything they have is gluten free and the brisket is amazing! I had brisket, green beans and grilled corn on the cob and it was all good. Staff seemed familiar with celiac disease and knew how to take appropriate precautions to prevent cross contamination too.

I asked if the barbecue sauce they pour over it is gluten free, and he reassured me it was. I had the beef ribs and brisket. Also had a corn on the cob, beans, and a pickle. I didn't have a reaction that day but was pretty bad the next day. I am not 100% sure this place caused it but I have suspicions

The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The brisket is the best I've had this far in life. So delicious! We also tried the pork chop which is also top notch. Sides were good too. Grilled corn was so tasty. I'm only in Austin for a few days but I might go back... I want more brisket.

Staff is not knowledgable at all about the food.. I got different responses from everyone I asked, but trusted the 1 other review on here that said the food was safe. Definitely feeling sick now.. Not worth the risk, go to another BBQ place that is more aware
