Tried it was not very good as cooked ahead and in a warmer. The ribs were dried out so was the brisket. Did not taste like it was made the same day.

All the meats and sauces are gluten free! Including many of their sides. The staff here was very nice and helpful! One of the workers Mom has Celiac so he was very knowledgeable about it and helped us out, even by checking labels and ingredients.

Fyi there are no salads on the menu...the food that they have is good. But my husband didn't order anything because of no salad.

I asked for the gluten free menu and they gave me a sheet of paper that listed the Barbecue Meats that were safe - Texas style beef brisket, sliced beef brisket, honey barbecue ham, tender turkey breast, old recipe sausage, and Spivey cheddar sausage. I don’t eat red meat so that left only turkey. Then it listed the safe Sides - coleslaw, potato salad, green beans with bacon, Caesar salad, chips, and waffle iron fires. The chips were a bag of Lay’s that said gluten free although not certified and they said this location didn’t have the fries.

My server did wash his hands, use a separate tray for my order (separate from my husband’s that contained gluten), and put gloves on. It was presumably safe although also disappointing to have three slabs of pressed turkey and soggy green beans with bacon I tried to avoid.

Note: I have celiac but no immediate reactions so I can’t be sure when I get exposed.

They have BBQ, sauces and rubs that are all GF. When I told them I had allergies they wiped down the entire line, changed gloves and used new utensils to avoid cross contamination.

Got the Chicken, BBQ beans, and Green beans with normal BBQ sauce (no roll). Overall it was good. Chicken didn’t have much flavor though… BBQ beans were delicious and the green beans were good.

I’ve eaten at Dickey’s in other locations and saw this one while traveling. I asked for brisket and they asked how I wanted it sliced. I said not at all because of gluten. They then told they don’t have any thing that’s gluten free. I don’t particularly think the employees understood what I was asking but did not risk eating here.
