Unfortunately got sick here. I've been before with no issues, but this time (as many of the other reviews say) my plate came out with cornbread. I asked if it was GF and she said no, said they would "replate" my dinner. I think they may have just removed the bread and sent it back out.

I think this can be safe but you have to be super vigilant.

Had a separate GF menu and all of their BBQ sauces were GF as well.

I had the ribs and brisket with greens, coleslaw and baked beans. It was all delicious and hit the spot. Our server knew what to do when I said I was GF. They typically bring out the platter with corn bread on it and we double checked and she said they wouldn’t be since I said I was GF.

Felt great after eating here and would recommend!

Gluten free menu but got glutened by the wings. May have been the sauce - try them dry rubbed to be safe.

Their GF menu had many good options. They brought my food with a piece of cornbread on it (the cornbread is not GF), but when I asked the waiter about it he was very apologetic and they remade it. The food, especially the sausage, was delicious. I did not get sick.

Cross contamination issues. Probably best avoided for the super sensitive.

Delicious BBQ for Brooklyn, very good bar, never had any cross contamination issues. The key, as usual, let them know if you are celiac. Manager brings out plate which is different than a general diners plate.

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.

What an amazing restaurant with so many gluten free options! I went to school at Syracuse and never went because I was vegetarian then so I was excited for my first Dinosaur experience. It did not disappoint! The gluten free menu for Syracuse is right on the website so I could review ahead of time and figure out what I wanted. I got a bowl with smoked mushrooms (the mushrooms were unbelievable) and my fiance was kind enough to also order gluten free by getting a pick three. The great thing is the only difference seemed to be he just did not get cornbread. This was only my second time having barbeque and it was so exciting to try all of the different options and figure out what I actually like (the chicken wings and barbeque chicken were amazing). The server announced gluten allergy when the food was brought to the table. I had an appetizer, my bowl and sampled all three of the bbq meats and the two sides and nothing bothered me so clearly there are measures being taken to prevent cross-contamination. I was also excited to take home some bottles of sauce which I knew would taste great and not bother me!

Pleased to find a 2 page gluten free menu. Our server could not have been more informed about all the kitchen precautions, and freely shared this information as soon as I inquired about a menu. He was very sweet and reassuring throughout the whole experience. Many times I feel like a bother when I eat out, but he really was amazing and one step ahead of my concerns the whole time, and that made a big difference. The plates are even color coded for allergens. Very good experience overall.
