They no longer have any sauces that are GF. Waiter was unfamiliar with the alergy.

Maybe the steamed broccoli and the salad are GF.

Ribs were absolutely delicious and gluten free of course. They have 2 barbeque sauces that were gluten free. I forget to tell the waitress not to add cornbread to my order. Thank goodness it was sitting at the edge of my plate when my food came out. I just had my daughter remove the cornbread off my plate and I used a fork to remove the rib and fries from my plate that was sitting next to the cornbread. Thank goodness the rest of my food didn’t get contaminated and I didn’t get sick. I would definitely eat at this restaurant again next time I’m craving ribs.

Previous review indicated all sauces except 1 were GF. Turns out only 2 are GF. Waiter was possibly worst we have encountered. Had no idea about GF. Tried to serve my Celiac wife a beer instead of Crispin Cider, served her ribs with cornbread touching it after all our requests about allergy concerns. Incredibly slow service.

My girlfriend is celiac. We've eaten BBQ here on several occasions and she has never had any problems whatsoever. They have a good selection of entrees and all but one of their sauces (there are several at your table) is GF.

Nope. Enjoyed eating here before I knew I had celiac. When we inquired about GF options here by phone the person actually told us there were not any available and that we should eat somewhere else. Go to Mission BBQ instead!

Really nice service and no gluten free options on the menu but they did provide me an allergen menu. It turned that so was unable to find anything I like that is without gluten and they don’t really understand celiac so no separate prep. I cannot recommend it for gluten free.

Very, very few options on gluten free. Don't look at the website because their in person menu is completely different because their ingredients were updated very recently. She accommodated and here are the following options:

-Salmon without the glaze -Baked potato with meat of choice -Rich and Sassy sauce (ONLY sauce option) -broccoli -corn on the cob

Other features: -Great atmosphere -Waitress went to the back like 5 times to ask about my options. Very accommodating

I would not recommend this place for anything gluten free. Too many different spices and sauces going on. Last time i came i had chicken and steamed vegetables and got really sick. Have not went back after that occasion. SKIP!
