Great drinks, food, and service. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer. One of the best meals out I have had.

This place gets so many points. 1) outdoor seating with heaters. 2) gf options marked on the menu. 3) knowledgeable waiters 4) GLUTEN FREE FRYER!

We got gf green beans (separate fryer) and bbq jackfruit with sweet potato fries (separate fryer!). However, I didn’t like the taste of the jackfruit (sour?) and left it on my plate. Our waiter noticed and proactively took a bit off our bill (I would have never asked him to do that because it was totally my taste buds that were the problem). But he said another person commented that the brine was sour maybe because it’s not fresh jackfruit. He said they’re about to revise their menu so I suggested marking the pulled chicken sandwich as GFO instead. Tldr; ask your waiter if there are any other GFO you could try in the meantime, especially if you’re not also vegetarian/vegan (plenty of other gf options for those as well). (And both the fried green beans and sweet potato fries were fantastic). But the experience made me really confident and comfortable about going back.

This place is a 21+ establishment and was great for a lunch stop as we were driving through on a rad trip to Idaho. Talking with the waitress she confirmed a dedicated fryer and many GF items on the menu. She said they are all very aware because one of the owners family members had Celiac so the owners made a point to have items that their family can eat. We had a pulled chicken sandwich with Fried green beans and fried sweet potato fries.

Fabulous glutenFree hamburgers and homemade french fries!!! Sooooo tasty! I have celiac disease, so I am extremely careful when eating anywhere but home. They took my celiac very seriously and I did not have to explain about cross-contamination, etc.. I’m so delighted to have found this place.!

The Julep was a great experience as somebody who was gluten free. They are knowledgeable, kind, and diligent there. Plus, the food is incredible. I had a burger and fries and I was totally fine afterwards and really enjoyed my meal. I will be going here again.

Looked like an amazing place- just an FYI, it is age 21+ in all areas. We didn't have a great way to do takeout for our teen with celiac today, but will hope to try it another time!

This was so good! We went on Tex Mex Tuesday and got the spicy Queso and chips. The Spicy Queso was GF and so, so good!! The salsa and chips were pretty good too! Chips were hot and fresh!

Dedicated fryer for chips and fries! I got the burger with bacon on a GF buns and fries. The burger was really good. You could tell the bun had been frozen and thawed (probably an Udi's one) but all together it was still super tasty!

My husband (not GF) got the catfish and coleslaw. He didn't really like the catfish and said it tasty muddy. The waiter told us they'd recently switched distributors and weren't getting the best results on the catfish. Also, my husband is from the south and KNOWS catfish...this wasn't it. Stil,l the coleslaw and tatortots he got were good.

Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and brought me a GF menu right away and could advise me on dedicated fryers and cooking procedures to avoid cross contamination.

Can’t say anything about the food because no one under 21 can’t eat there - even outside. If you are an adult celiac - you will probably enjoy.

The food and drinks were great! Best gluten free food I've had in a long time. I had the bbq chicken sandwich w fries. They have a dedicated fryer, a separate menu and were happy to discuss everything with me. On the pricier side but I was happy as a clam. Highly recommend!

Eaten here a few times and loved the food! Dedicated fryer and gluten free menu is available on the back of the normal menu. Staff was knowledgeable and nice when I asked for accommodations for a gluten allergy.
