Ordered online and was able to thoroughly understand the menu with the staffs help. Essentially, everything is gluten free except: espresso sauce, chopped beef, and the obviously bread. All the other meats and sides are GF. The brisket and ribs are cut at the same station. And the other meats are cut at the same station as sandwiches are prepared. They warned me of this possibility of cross contamination, though I had all the GF meats and had no reaction whatsoever. They are on top of their shit here.
— No gluten-free information on the menu
I don't have to tell you how good the food is, all the praise speaks for itself. But when we ordered pickup, despite asking for a gluten free order they still added bread to our bag. Nothing was contaminated and I didn't have a reaction but it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.
The staff was awesome and knowledgeable. Best brisket and ribs that I have ever eaten. Give a heads up with the staff, and you will get to SAFELY enjoy the BEST meat in Austin. They used a separate cutting board, fresh gloves AND a new brisket for me to avoid cross contamination. The rub is safe. There is a separate sauce that is not safe, but the meat is so good that I can’t review the safe sauces. I didn’t want to do anything to take away from that perfection and I didn’t even taste them. The potato salad is safe, but watch where they pop the bread up at the time. Get there EARLY. We waited for 3 hours, but it was worth every second. The turkey was tasty, but seriously...brisket and ribs. I plan to go back ASAP.
Meats and sides are gluten-free with the exception of the chopped beef and the espresso barbecue sauce.
The only thing not celiac friendly is the dark BBQ sauce (therefor the brisket sandwich) and the bread. It is safe to eat any food from the grill and any of the other sauces on the table. The sides are also all gluten free. If you have a group, you should pre-order. I waited 5 hours when I went! By the time you’re waiting, you are committed haha.
Got there around 7:30 on a Friday, sat down to eat around 12/12:30. I let the girl taking orders know that I was celiac while waiting in line, and she made a specific note about it. She even followed through 4 hours later, and pointed me out to the kitchen staff at the counter. Got the ribs, brisket and no sides or table sauces. Other then a wonderful meat induced coma after, no negative reaction!
You will wait but it is worth it, the ribs come right off the bone, the smoke ring on the brisket is perfection. They do BBQ right!
