    At first we were a little unsure, but after speaking with a manager he talked us through all of their practices. He seemed very knowledgeable about cross contamination and when we asked he talked his staff through everything to make sure we felt safe. On top of that the food was incredible. Some of the best brisket I’ve had (and I smoke my own) and my fiancé said the chicken was great as well.

    Called ahead and received positive answers about GF & safe food. They have a separate GF menu. Food is served cafeteria style. The server who did the meat changed his gloves when asked (he had just handled bread). I will go back if I’m in DC.

    GF menu with lots of options; most staff is knowledgeable and/or able to get you a manager who can assist.

    When I called the restaurant to inquire about gluten free options the person on the line read aloud to me the menu and said it all contained gluten. When I asked for gluten free options she then told me that the sauce has gluten in it. Apparently the people who work there do not have access to the information shared on this website. For that reason I would not go here.

    Loved it! They are very knowledgeable about celiac disease. I had their BBQ Beef ribs, Cucumber salad, and White Shoepeg Corn Pudding. All were delicious and very affordable. The atmosphere is laid back and in a very nice section of DC. Next time we are in DC, we'll definitely go back.

    They have a separate allergen menu that Cleary specified what is gluten free. They have a great amount of options but a strange set up. It is a cafeteria style dining experience. we sat at the bar andjust let the bartender put in our orders. Food was good but I was shocked to see they didn't have any pulled meats. that was the only disappointment. I think I've had better bbq elsewhere though.

    Excellent Menu layout. Showing gluten free options along with all other allergens. As a Texan it is always great to find good bbq outside the State, and Hill Country lived up to its inspiration!

    I'm always happy when I eat here because of the options, but only when my workplace is buying (it's expensive). Like the beef brisket and corn pudding. Miss the german potatoes from my pre-Celiac days. Great overall but my favorite gluten-free BBQ place is Pork Barrel in Alexandria.

    Good enough gluten free menu but didn't find staff were accommodating or helpful when asking for menu advice simply telling me to refer to the gluten free menu when I asked about sides and cross contamination.

    Awesome BBQ place! We had beef brisket and it just melted in our mouth. Would be better of you had Gluten Free rolls, which are very easy to get nowadays.

    Very Celiac friendly! I asked for GF menu and checked it out first! Then asked all the food servers to change gloves. They were all very nice. The beef brisket was yum corn pudding delish, cole slaw the best and collard greens that made a Tennessee girl sing! Always ask questions and be your own advocate!

    The corn pudding was to die for. The beef was mediocre but the dude dishes and service were excellent. and if you're from the south and need some sweet tea this is the place to come.

    Great food! This is one of the few gluten free BBQ places that I know of. The food is great and there are tons of options. Ask the host for a gluten free menu before you find a table. Make sure when you go to order your meat selections that you ask the people behind the counter to change gloves and change the lining on the scale they use to weigh the meat. Since they have a few meat options that have gluten it is important that they change the scale's lining paper and gloves to avoid cross contamination. Also, remind the host that you do not want bread. Sometimes that instinctively throw a alive of bread on too of the meat since it is such a routine thing for them to do! Enjoy!!

    The concept was good, but it's way too expensive for bit much meat.

    Really good food. They were awesome about my allergy and allowed me to substitute an additional side for the cornbread. Their mashed sweet potatoes are out of this world.

    Decent BBQ place. Most meats are GF, maybe half the sides, but sides are cafeteria style and cross-contamination from stuff falling into nearby bins while scooped is a very real possibility. In an area where a lot of the takeout GF kind of blurs together it's a great way to change up lunch, though.

    Nearly all of the meats (except some of the sausages) are gluten-free. Many of the sides are gluten-free. Food is served cafeteria style. You order food at the counter. Meats are wrapped in paper. Sides are scooped into separate containers.
