While the food at Dr. BBQ is fantastic, all of their sides are fried in the same fryer as non-GF items. When placing an order I requested that they inform the kitchen it was an allergy and they did not. The order had white bread as well as potatoes fried in the same fryer is non-GF French fries in the same box as the meat (despite being assured it was GF). Upon realizing this the take-out staff said that they “can’t guarantee anything is gluten-free.” I have eaten there three times before and was assured quite the opposite. Highly disappointed given it is an allergy and not a preference.

I got the wings and the pineapple. I did not get sick . THE WINGS & PINEAPPLE WERE AMAZING! HOWEVER, They cannot guarantee celiac safe, but "do their best.". Note, they did put bread on the side of my husband's GF meal. My MIL asked for corn tortillas and they accidentally put flour, so be very specific & check your meal. They basically said if you stay with the meat and sauce you should be safe. They had other items marked GF, but be alert

We visited Dr BBQ for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the number of safe options. There are a couple items marked GF that might not be Celiac safe because they use Korean BBQ sauce. We didn't ask but definitely check for soy sauce before eating those! All the meats are smoked with nothing gluten in the smoker, they have corn tortillas for their tacos, a macaroni and cheese made with hominy instead of pasta, all their BBQ sauces are made in house with no gluten, even their wings are GF! Our dinner was delicious and we will definitely be back!
