    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!

    I was bummed for quite some time not being able to eat here anymore. Just found out they went GF with majority of the menu. It was just as tasty as I remembered!

    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.
