Went for lunch. All meats and sauces are GF. They have GF sides marked on their menu. Told them about having celiac and they changed their gloves, got a separate clean cutting board and knife. Felt safe and did not get sick. Would go back again for some great BBQ!

The food here was so good! Everyone has already said how careful they are about cross contamination so I will talk about the food. I had the brisket. It was yummy, a little dry, but still tasted great! The potato salad was delicious as were the green beans, and cinnamon apples! I wanted to try the cucumbers too, but didn’t want to get four sides. Lol! My husband had the sausage and it was amazing! I wished I had gotten that.

They were very knowledgeable about gluten free and celiacs. As soon as I told them they changed their gloves, got a new knife and a new cutting board. When you first go in you wouldn’t suspect it would be safe for a celiac but they know what they are doing. The food is great too!

The staff was knowledgeable when we mentioned Celiac Disease and told me what meats, sauces and sides were an option. They cleaned off the cutting surface AND then topped it with a clean cutting board, pulled fresh pieces of meat from the smoker, plate from the middle of the stack, all that. What I was most impressed by was that after plating my ribs, one slid off the plate a bit, touching the surface he’d just cleaned (but not on the fresh board he put out) and he didn’t just push it back in the plate. He started over making me a fresh set to eliminate the risk (however tiny). This was all without me saying anything more than that I had Celiac Disease. I loved not having to take him through it all step by step. Clearly they’d been well trained and I so appreciated it. Tasty smoked meat (didn’t do any of the sides) and felt great afterwards (I’m very sensitive so that’s saying something).

This place was in the middle of tourist central and I was super skeptical, but they know their gluten free!! They changed gloves, changed cutting boards, even pulled a plate out of the middle of the plate stack! Called the person who makes the sauce to ask about corn - they are all gluten free but I am gluten and corn free. Absolutely amazing!

I was impressed by the care they took as you walk down the line to get your food and then sit down. I had beef brisket, and they got fresh meat, new gloves, different cutting board and knife. I also had the apples and they were what I was hoping- sweet with some cinnamon.

Awesome experience at Jack’s! I have to eat gluten free for health reasons and I was extremely anxious about eating here due to how busy they were. When we got to the front of the line, I told the butcher I needed gluten free. He immediately took his gloves off, got a brand new cutting board, knife, and brisket from the smoker. He even grabbed a plate from the middle of the stack instead of the next one on top. My food came into contact with as few people as possible. The lady serving the sides changed gloves and handed me my tray over the counter instead of having it near the other food. I did not get sick and I felt like they were happy to help me.

Can't say enough good things. Awesome food, very friendly service, great location on Broadway. When they found out my wife had an allergy to gluten, they went out of their way to remake her plate with a different knife that has not cut the fresh bread loaves and potentially cross contaminated. But when I asked about gf sauces, they asked if we had told them up front of the allergy. We had simply asked for no bread. Alert and attentive, they offer as to remake her combo plate. Besides the attentive service, did I mention the bbq and the sides were great. I think I got the end of brisket so had chunks instead of slices. I prefer the slices, but it was still incredibly tender brisket. We only had a few hours in Nashville before a flight the next day. Definitely this was the one stop worth making.

Update: visited again on 9/27/19, was a bit nervous seeing a couple bad reviews since my first visit but I had same great experience as last year! Funny thing it was same worker who served me this time too... They were slammed, line out the door and down the street but he still handled my order with the same care. He cleaned the work station, washed his hands and new gloves, new gf cutting board brought out w new knife, all meat was pulled directly out of the smoker to ensure no risk of cross contamination. The turkey is perfect btw, pork shoulder was great too. I had green beans and apples which were also good. I highly recommend this place despite the lack of typical signs of safety for Celiacs lol. Worth noting am a HIGHLY reactive person so cross contamination is a big issue for me. I will be back every time I’m in Nashville! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and amazing! I told him I was gluten free and his first question was do you have celiac? Umm wow yes I do and that was a big shock to find such understanding in a joint like this! Don’t be scared off by the initial appearance of the line (I was) as soon as I said yes I have celiac he immediately changed gloves, got a new cutting board used only for meat ever, new knife etc! All of the meats are safe, there are a few safe sides (Altho the Mac n cheese is NOT gf as a previous review states) and all sauces are too. Our fav was the turkey and pork shoulder though, perfect!

When I said I was celiac, he got a new, clean cutting board from the back, changed his gloves and knives, and got new pieces of meat from the smoker. He then followed my plate all the way through to minimize any contamination. All meats and sauces are GF and a bunch of sides are too. SO GOOD!!!!!

They say all their meat is gluten free and the gluten free sides are labeled with stickers. However, they cut the bread on the same surface as the meat and near the sides, thus contaminating everything with crumbs. Not sure why this place gets such good reviews. Am I missing something?

I've never experienced such a great gluten free moment at a restaurant!! They immediately cleaned the cutting board, changed their gloves, got a clean cutting board, got new meat out of the warmer and pulled my sides directly from the back. Amazing!! Every single staff members heads turned and they went into a different mode as soon as they heard Celiac. I was in awe! Thank you for such an unbelievable experience!

Visited at peak lunchtime and yet they were scrupulous on changing gloves all down the serving line, cleaning surfaces and using different boards and knives and carving from fresh untouched joints - 37 in queue in front of me but only a 15 minute wait - and worth it delicious A d freshest salads we have had in USA - all sauces GF and can be bought to take away - see Photos

As others stated when we told them we were gluten free & had a celiac in the group, the staff changed gloves, pulled fresh meat (brisket & new rack of ribs) and a special clean cutting board. This during a very busy lunch rush. Staff even checked on us later to see how we liked our meal.

The staff was knowledgeable and changed gloves, got a new cutting board and a clean knife, AND pulled out a new wrapped pork shoulder for me, but I got sick not 10 minutes after eating my meal. I think cross contamination is just unavoidable with the sides. They are labeled gf or not, but it seems like sandwiches are their top service so as they hand trays down the line gluten hands are handling sides throughout the day. Also, I’m super sensitive, so it might be okay for those fine with cross contamination!

Amazing! Same experience as others - new meat, new cutting board, new knife, changed gloves when I said I had Celiac. The man who was plating the meats even got my sides and double checked that my side choices were GF. We went twice while in town since the first visit was so great. Second time was just as good. I wish there was a place like this close to home!!! A+++

I went here because of the positive reviews and they did not disappoint!! As others have experienced, the staff asked if I had Celiac when I inquired about gluten in any of the meat. The place was PACKED with a line down the street. Even though they were slammed, the gentleman taking my order took his time to clean his work station, change his gloves, pull out a fresh cutting board and knife, and use a new piece of meat. He then ensured the rest of the staff were also aware of my Celiac and then they also changed their gloves and took special care of my plate. The meats were all GF, as were all the delicious sauces. They had several GF side items as well. I’d definitely go back!!!

I didn't even have to mention the word gluten when I got here. As soon as I said, 'Hey I have celiac.' the guy cutting the meat started changing his gloves, got a fresh cutting board from the back and cut everything from fresh stock. Super smooth, straight forward process, which is a nice change. Food was pretty good too.

They are able to accommodate celiac. They are knowledgeable about how to handle food and avoid cross contamination.

They did pull mt order right out of the smoker. However, it's not the most flavorful bbq I have had. Maybe it was what I had. smoked chicken.

But I give them an "A" for effort.

Staff is knowledgeable. I didn't mention gluten free, but asked instead if the chicken came with bread. He picked right up on it and asked if I had a gluten allergy. Changed his gloves, etc. to keep my food uncontaminated, then the other girls in the line steered me away from certain sides (mashed potatoes! ) without me asking. Food was good. I enjoyed the meal.
