At the restaurant they give you a list of things with gluten in it, to me this seems backwards. Then it takes more time for you to figure out what things aren't gluten free, which means the waitress has to wait longer. My family enjoyed every bite of their meals and they did not get sick. However I would highly recommend to the manager that they did print off a gluten-free menu.

Have had ribs and beans and have never had an issue. Will always be back. I also had different meats and have not had any issues.

I put off writing this review for several months, but feel I must post this. Jack Stack used to be our go-to barbecue restaurant, but the last time we went there, I got glutened. Big time.

The gluten-free menu had been done away with, and an allergen list printed in its place. When I asked the manager for some clarifications, she went to the kitchen for a good 15 minutes before returning with some vague answers. It was clear that there was some confusion going on, but we were there to celebrate a family milestone and I went ahead and ordered the SAME THING I have ordered at least a half-dozen times. I emphasized that I have Celiac’s, repeatedly. I was sick for a week. I will not trust them again, and it makes me sad.

Amazing allergen list - pretty much everything is gluten free except the toast! I loved the burnt ends, brisket, sausage beans, and cream corn. Service was amazing and dinner was about $25. I’ll definitely be back when visiting KC.

Been here twice in the last month. Both times either a manager or server explained the precautions they take. They have Gluten-Free buns and most main dishes are Gluten-Free. Also yummy. Fries are not Gluten-Free but substitute the potato salad. Yummmmm.

Excellent restaurant. My 9 year old daughter had a pulled pork sandwich with a vegetable kabob. This place takes celiac seriously. Gluten free buns. Tons of choices.

Dined here 7/24 and did not get sick. The waiter brought me a list of menu items which contain gluten and a separate list of items containing soy products. Then it was up to me to figure out just which items on the menu I could safely eat. This is a "clunky" system and not user friendly. I navigated their procedure and did not get sick eating my beef burnt ends and baked potato with only cheddar cheese. Regarding taste and food quality, I found the food tasty but greasy. Will probably not have BBQ if I eat here again.

The manager came over and personally explained the GF safe practices that were in place and had a printed "Reverse" menu of which foods were not safe. I had burnt ends (to die for), a baked potato and baked beans with no reaction : )

Great BBQ. My husband and I shared the beef, turkey and pork plate with the baked potato and cheesy corn bake. The manager came out to explain what can be made gluten free. Everything was great and I did not get sick:)

The manager here took the time to verbally explain how they handle gluten free and made suggestions on what to stay away from to avoid cross contamination. Food and service was beyond amazing.

I informed the waitress that I needed to be gluten free and she assured me that the kitchen and manager knew. My salad came out with croutons, so I didn't eat it. My meal was supposed to be GF, but I felt sick after eating it. I've heard good things, but am very disappointed.

A little pricey, but worth it. Barbeque goes upscale here, but you can still wear jeans and a t-shirt, and be fine. The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free issues, as well.

We have had some good experiences here. Just wish they would find a way to make their onion rings gluten free. They used to be a favorite of ours. And we can't have the fries since they don't have a dedicated fryer. Aside from that, we've enjoyed their meats, beans and cole slaw without any problems.

Excellent! Great bbq, good service! Fries are not GF but the cheesy potato bake is and it’s delicious. The GF buns are also good and don’t fall apart.

They have a dedicated allergen menu. I had a chopped burnt end sandwich on gluten free bun and a loaded baked potato, plus bbq sauce, and everything stayed down. I took home leftovers, and they were delicious the next day. I toasted up the bun a bit more, it didn’t get soggy. Would recommend.

Amazing dinner. The Brisket and pulled pork had so much flavor. The BBQ sauce was phenomenal. Could have every side dish except French fries. Would definitely go again!
