We were passing through on a road trip and based on other reviews tried it. We just settled on the burger and fries, but wish I had tried the catfish. The manager let me know that the owners daughter has celiac. The gal at the register was not aware of what was or wasn’t gluten free and I had to have her double check on things.

Great food. Celiac safe. Always tell them you have Celiac or allergy. Dedicated fryer for GF fish, shrimp and fries. Hand cut fries. New GF hamburger bun. Charges $1.00 extra for GF. I understand an up charge for a GF bun, but for the fish? Makes no sense.

Grilled fish or shrimp tacos on corn tortillas are good.

You need to make sure the cashier writes gluten free and no bread or hush puppies on your ticket. They have gluten free bread, however, tell them you don’t want it ran through the toaster with butter because the other gluten bread is placed in the toaster as well! Otherwise, this place is a go-to for me!

The gluten free options are burger, chicken,and the shrimp kabobs. They also have GF bread as well. If you get the shrimp kabobs, make sure you tell them ‘NO hush puppies’ or your plate will come back with a hush puppy on it, even if you tell the cashier that you are ‘GF’. Otherwise, this place is very safe because they cook the meat on a separate grill and they don’t handle GF bread along with the gluten bread. ***The best thing is that they have a dedicated fryer for their fries and they’re so good! *** I’ve never had an issue here and I’m pretty sensitive! You just have to be your own advocate!

You can get any fried shrimp or fish gluten free and they fry it in different grease according to the manager. I had a fried shrimp sandwich and it was delicious.

I had a burger with GF bun and it was the best I’ve ever had. I will definitely be back! Next time I will try the grouper poboy on a GF bun.

Very clean restaurant and the people that work there are very nice and helpful

The fried catfish is great. I had my friend who isn't Gluten Intolerant try mine and he said it was just as good as the regular. I stop here every I have to go through Ruston for work. Never been disappointed or had any reactions.

They do have gluten free breading for their fish and gluten free buns. They also have a dedicated fryer which is nice, however, they didn’t seem to have a real understanding of what foods were actually okay to eat. I asked the person at the register and got a lot of um, well I think this is. Also, even after telling me their hush puppies weren’t gluten free they still put them in with my fried fish! Overall, I feel like it would be okay if you were very very specific, and not actually celiac, but I wouldn’t trust them completely.

Found this gem on a road trip. Met the staff who were very knowledgeable about gluten, cross contamination and celiac. As a celiac sufferer I appreciate the concern and detail they showed in preparation of my meal. The selection was great and meal was better. The catfish filets were thick and moist with a crunchy crispy golden brown crust. We will definitely make this stop again on future road trips!

The owner and manager are very aware of celiac. They have gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer for French fries. The manager also said they use a special fryer and batter for fried fish and shrimp. Highly recommend.
