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.

None of their BBQ sauce is gluten-free so there is a limited menus to choose from. The only meat available is chicken. Their side dishes include; coleslaw, salad without croutons, corn on the cob and a few other potions. They offer corn bread muffins but verify they are gluten-free cuz I don’t remember them being on the gluten-free menu.

This location is supposed to have a dedicated fryer to fries but always ask to confirm. They have several GF options per their nutritional information.

The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options, and the cook took extra precaution to safeguard against contamination. There is only one bbq sauce that is not gluten free, and the staff made sure I knew which one it was. They do not have a dedicated fryer, but their mashed potatoes made up for me not being able to get fries.

The food was absolutely delicious. The staff didn’t feel that they had a lot of gluten free options, but I feel they have a great selection.
