    If eating at any of the Jethro's, definitely go with the gluten free meat dishes. Make sure to clarify about the different sauces. The meats are amazing as are many of the side dishes. Would not recommend a salad from here if you really want something tasty.

    Lots of choices on the GF menu. Staff very knowledgable. Wings are baked not fried as they do not have a dedicated fryer. I had ham, turkey, brisket, ribs and pulled chicken. Most sauces are GF. Great place!!

    This location has a gluten-free menu but doesn't seem as extensive of a menu as the Ankeny location. The brisket meat was very fatty. This location also had a very limited selection of gluten-free sides. Overall I was accommodated and did not get sick though.

    Jethro's has an extensive brunch and dinner Gluten-free menu. Eggs, brisket, hash browns, pulled pork, chicken, etc. Ketchup and BBQ sauce are all labeled gluten-free too. Great for those with Celiac Disease!

    Gluten Free menu, but nothing is actually gluten free. They don't have dedicated kitchen space for GF stuff. Wings are fried in same stuff as everything else. Their main BBQ sauce is not GF according to the GM and the meat was real dry without it. Will not be returning.

    Server accidentally brought my side salad with croutons and just by the look on my face she realized what had happened, apologized over and over and immediately took the salad to make another. I trust this place and will be returning many times!
