Some of the best BBQ I've had! All meats are GF. Fries are safe and not cross contaminated. GF buns. Highly recommended for a safe meal.

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/

The part about the dedicated fryer for fries got cut off.
We typically do well at Joe’s. This time we tried the ribs (normally go with the burnt ends). Tested the ribs and fries with our Nima. Fries were okay but the ribs came back with Gluten found.

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.

Did curbside from Joe’s of a half rack rib plate. It was delicious! I called ahead to confirm the ribs were indeed gluten free, and she said most things on their menu are, and listed the sides for me that were not. She shared they do have a dedicated fryer for the fries, and they also offer a gluten free bun for sandwiches. The online system allowed me to request no bread with my rib dinner and note an allergy. Everything was super tasty!
