They did a glove change for me and had a list of menu items and could help me find what was GF quickly!

I read the positive reviews...I was excited, so we tried it. Yet, here I sit 2 hours later- my stomach all jacked up. The staff seemed knowledgeable and they changed their gloves, assured me the fries were fried separately. I had the brisket and fries. I can’t leave a positive review of whether it’s actually GF or not (I’m leaning towards no), cuz 2 hours later I’m stuck in the bathroom. Edited to update: my gluten allergic daughter is also stuck in the bathroom with stomach issues- I cannot call this safe, especially if both of us are sick because of it.

Amazing food, I had ribs, slaw, and fries and all was good! Their sauces and rubs are gluten free and their fries are in a separate fryer. I thought it might be a little dubious when I got to the counter to grab my takeout order and they asked if I was the one with "a bread allergy", but all was well. I've eaten here pre-diagnosis, so this was my first time getting their food gluten free. But I would never recommend eating in the restaurant, call ahead and get takeout! The wait times are INTENSE! We've waited for 1.5 hours before.

By far and away the best barbecue in Kansas City. Don't go anywhere else. Plus, they always change their gloves and are knowledgeable about cross contamination. Their fries are completely gf, and they are to die for. Never gotten sick here, so it's a staple at my house.

Staff changed gloves immediately after I asked which menu options were gf. All meats were gf except the chicken! I would suggest calling in and having a picnic rather than waiting for over an hour to eat.

When went here on a Saturday and got Lucky with the line! Go early! The kitchen staff was very accommodating and suggested multiple gluten free items. They also changed their gloves to do my dish. No menu but just ask and they will help you. I got pulled pork, no sauce or bun. They also sell Cow Town BBQ sauce which is gluten free. We loved it and bought a few bottles to go!

They did not change their gloves after being asked twice and my daughter (celiac) then refused to eat. We went at a very busy time so maybe it would have been better had we chosen another time.

We ate here while traveling through town. I have celiac and am very sensitive to cross-contamination and did not have any problems. At a friend’s suggestion, I had the Z-Man (no onion rings) on a GF bun and it was very good. The fries are made in a dedicated frier, so I was able to eat those as well. In response to the reviewer who was concerned about msg, this ingredient is not a valid concern for people with celiac or gluten sensitivity in general. Many celiacs also have other food sensitivities—lactose intolerance being a common example—but that doesn’t mean that all additional sensitivities apply to all individuals with celiac. Here is some background on msg: https://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/monosodium-glutamate/

They change gloves and have a dedicated space for fries. The bun in pretty decent and soft but kind of thick. They call out allergy down the line and everyone knows the protocol of clean, change gloves and don’t add bread. Felt pretty confident here and my stomach is fine after!

I have eaten here for years before I was diagnosed and now years after I still eat there. The workers know how to prepare gluten free. You can either get a sandwich with just the meat or they do have a gluten free bun. Personally I get the bun on the side, take it home and toast it, and put it together. It is amazing that way. The fries and seasoning on the fries are gluten free. They will ask if it us a gluten allergy and mark the ticket accordingly to make sure it is safe. I love going here because I have confidence that I will not get sick.

Staff very knowledgeable, have a dedicated fryer for fries, and the best gluten free buns I've ever had! This bbq is amazing and so many gluten free options (pulled pork, brisket, burnt ends, smoked turkey, all sauces, fries, potato salad, etc). We always stop back to buy some meat by the pound before we leave and I've never gotten sick.

LOVE Joe's! Food is wonderful. If you tell the person when you order that you have celiac they yell to the whole line that there's an alergy coming through and they all change their gloves. We eat hete all the time, I've never gotten sick. Also we have a friend who eats here because they accomodate his dairy alergy. The fries are GF they have a dedicated fryer.

This place is super busy, and prices are reasonable. HOWEVER...the thing that is not revealed or mentioned in any of the previous reviews is that the 3rd ingredient in their Joe's house seasoning is MSG, (Monosodium Glutamate) and this makes people with a gluten sensitivity or allergy extremely sick. It's sprinkled all over their fries, and the chicken is loaded with it. We ordered fries without the seasoning on it and I tried to cut off all the chicken that it was visibly on but I still have a headache from being exposed to it. If you are able to eat here and don't have a reaction, it is possibly you don't have a gluten allergy.

This is my favorite BBQ place in KC, and has been for years! I was thrilled to find out that even though I've had to give up gluten due to an allergy I can still enjoy most of their menu items! Obv no bread, but the sauces, spices and meats and most of the sides are still safe. They always change their gloves and are quick to call out down the line to alert the other staff about an allergy issue.

I called in advance to check if dedicated fryers and the answer is yes! He also indicated that the BBQ sauce and the spices were GF. They changed their gloves and were very helpful when we went there in person. I love their fries and BBQ!

They stated the meats and sauces are gluten free. Ribs and chicken are my favorite. Potato salad and slaw as well. May want to call and see what else they have available.
