    I placed a takeout order over the phone and told them I was ordering from the gluten free menu and that my daughter had celiac disease. When we brought the food home we saw they put cornbread on top of my daughter's entree. We called the restaurant and they told us the cornbread wasn't gluten free. Won't be going back.

    Great food and great service. Beware of the sides, though. My gluten free beans were full of gluten macaroni. They must be very close together in the kitchen. Just keep this in mind when making your side selection.

    Great GF food but this place gets ridiculously crowded. I went on a Monday night but we had to wait 2 hours for a table. if you're lucky, you might be able to sit on the bar without waiting.

    Dinosaur BBQ was our first restaurant outing after our kids were diagnosed with celiac disease. We could not have had better experience. The management and wait staff were knowledgable, kind and accommodating. The food was good though what i really remember is how nice they were which was exactly what I needed that day. I'm a fan.

    I️ visited last night. All sauces and rubs are gluten free. No β€œhidden” gluten in anything. So basically the only way to be contaminated is if you you get something breaded. Or battered. Fries are gf. They have the most amazing potato salad and brisket.

    This is the type of place that has good intentions, but poor execution. I told the waitress I was gluten free, but when my plate came there was a big piece of cornbread on it. We've also ordered takeout and gotten mixed reviews on which items were and were not gluten free. If you are looking for great BBQ, Try PJ's in Saratoga. They are great.

    They have some decent options and a well marked menu. But they've messed up (given me corn bread with to go orders, forgotten to tell the kitchen about my allergy, etc) half the times that I've been there. Not worth the hassle/risk for celiacs

    SO GOOD! Most of the meats and sides are gluten free, waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Everyone was so nice and food was delicious. Had wings and plater of brisket, ribs and pulled pork with mashed potatoes and baked beans. All delicious and my non celiac family had sandwiches they loved. Could not recommend more.

    Great selection and knowledgeable staff. When my plate first came out, it had a piece of cornbread on it. However, I think they set some kind of record because they served the correct plate within the minute. I wish I had a stopwatch, it was fast. They comped my drink after the mistake and I was dining with 8 other people, so I can forgive them.

    The wife has celiac's and was able to enjoy some excellent pulled pork (the rubs on the pork are GF). She was able to get a salad (be careful though, not all dressings are GF) and mashed potatoes as sides. The meal turned out great and the waitress was very knowledgeable in the precautions necessary. I'm not sure if this is standard protocol now but the GF meals are all plated in red plates where normal meals are plated on blue. I've dined here before but never with my celiac wife. Reading some of the recent reviews worried me, but we were pleasantly surprised and as always the food was fantastic.

    A great option and good food. Separate gluten-free menu, and they take cross-contamination seriously. Their daily specials are often also gluten free. Our party had 3 people with Celiac disease, and they were kind, courteous, and very helpful during the entire ordering process. When they brought the food out the manager also came out to explain their whole process for avoiding cross-contamination. I've eaten here twice now and it's been great each time. Portions are huge, sauces on the wings are great, and wait staff is friendly.

    If you love barbecue, you'll love this place. Off the gf menu, I had the jumbo BBQ chicken wings with the garlic chipotle sauce - delicious. I only ordered 3, but could have made a meal of just them. I then had the tres ninos which is a sampler of the BBQ brisket, ribs, and pork with 2 sides - I had rice and beans, and a tomato cucumber sauce for a total of $20 before tax. I had a hard cider that was a bit spendy at $7.50. Note: call ahead for reservations, especially on Friday night or a weekend. I was there on Friday at 7:00 pm and there was a 45 min wait for a table and it was packed with people waiting. It's a fun, boisterous place. I'll add some pictures.

    Very impressed! Sauce is GF, soy-free. Fries are so popular they have their own frier; peanut-free. My waiter was easy to talk to and wasn't caught off guard by my allergies and Celiac Disease. He came back with an allergy chart and walked me through my order. Said the back changes gloves and food comes on a red plate. Manager served me to make sure it was okay.

    GF menu is available. Staff not super knowledgable but aware and helpful for food allergies and celiac. My daughter had the honey chicken wings and was fine. The dinner plates seem to come with a piece of corn bread. I didn't get a chance to ask if it was GF or not. Corn bread was not specifically listed on the Gf menu. So make sure to confirm to avoid sending a plate back. Hoisin chicken wings are listed on the GF menu which surprised me since hoisin sauce is typically not GF.

    Great gf BBQ food. Restaurant has dedicated gf menu that is pretty comprehensive in terms of menu options. The one thing is that they will sometimes put corn bread on the dish (which is not gf ). Just ask the server to not put it on.

    They have a large gluten free menu with many BBQ items but watch out. First they served me mac and cheese (NOT gluten free) and I had to explain that mac and cheese was not gluten free. Then when they served me my new meal, my pulled pork had a piece of mac and cheese in it, suggesting they just moved my other meal to a new plate. I tried to explain the issue of cross contamination to them but my waiter did not understand.

    Dined there on Sunday, 10/11/15 for daughter's birthday. Two of three celiacs were glutened! Son had MACARONIS IN HIS PULLED PORK! He ordered the 'bad a-- pulled pork plate' and got 'bad a--', alright! ugh! The two who were glutened spent the night miserable. The waitress & kitchen & manager were non-chalant about the whole thing. VERY disappointing experience as we have enjoyed Dinosaur BBQ here and in Rochester multiple times with no problems. But now? Now their GF efforts seem to be merely a nod to the fad GF-ers. This is insufficient and very upsetting. Heavy, woeful, sigh.....

    Stopped by this restaurant while I was shopping in the area. I was impressed by their GF menu although they do not have GF buns for sandwiches. I did not feel like I was missing out not have a bun at all. It is a huge stack of meat with a couple sides. The manager told me all BBQ sauces are safe. The fries are even safe! Their lemonade goes perfect with the BBQ. I have been back since and was just as impressed.
