Great experience in this place every time! All meats but pork are gluten free. Great options for sides. Sweet Corn is gf and tastes amazing. Staffing is very helpful to explain gf options with gf menu.

Ate here without an issue! The meat was delicious and all GF, they only season with salt and pepper, also their INCREDIBLE bbq sauce is GF! The ONLY thing I’d say that wasn’t the best is the sides, many gf options but not the best I’ve had, but I’d go there again just for the brisket.... so..... good....

We Nima tested the regular bbq sauce, the regular sausage and the brisket. All tests came back GF. The staff told I the fries were in a shared fryer with onion rings, and the spicy bbq sauce was not Gf. We did not test these items. We tested the pre-packaged Vanilla ice cream and gluten was detected, so do not eat.

The staff were knowledgeable and one was even GF herself. Lots to choose from with the BBQ meats and a few sides.

Staff was good. Meat and original sauce are gf as are beans and a few sides. I live with Celiac and had no reactions. Only a few staff members knew what I was talking about.

I went here with a friend specifically because of it supposedly having good gluten free options, but when I went through the line to get my sides, I was told by the 2 ladies behind the counter... “Nothing we have is gluten free”. By the way, this was after one of them went back to the kitchen to ask the cook/chef. Puzzled, I went through the rest of the line to pay for my brisquet and ribs, where the cashier told me, “oh, we have several gluten free sides and sauces.” I never found out for sure who was correct, but they should probably figure it out.

All the meats are GF, including the regular BBQ sauce (not the spicy). They have multiple sides that are GF as well. I tried the roasted corn. This place is delicious!! They make all the meat outside on the pits, so safe for Celiac!

Hard 8 in Stephenville was delicious. The staff was well versed in Celiac and what is GF. I had the brisket, coleslaw, and the pinto beans. All very good!
