All meats are gluten free. If you tell them you're celiac or gf, they change gloves, get a cutting board and knife from the back, and a new piece of meat. However, I've eaten here 3 times and it wrecked my stomach each time. I was thinking it was because I ate too much brisket each time (hard not too because it's delicious) but after my most recent visit, I've decided I won't be back.

Besides the hour long wait, it was a fantastic experience. When I told them I had a gluten allergy they changed gloves, got a clean cutting board and knife, got a fresh piece of meat out of the warmer, and made sure there was no cross contamination. Tons of options - I had the pulled pork, a slice of turkey and potato salad. Delicious!!

Ate here last night. Ordered the beef brisket, cole slaw, and pinto beans. Was sick the rest of the night immediately after ingestion. While the staff changed gloves, prepared a “clean” workspace, and identified the GF meats and sides for me, I still became extremely ill. I would avoid this place if you have Celiac disease. There is too much cross contamination.

All the meat is marked gluten free, the house sauces are gluten free and so are most of the side. I got pulled pork, a sausage link, collard greens & potato salad and chose the green Chile sauce. It was all delicious!! When I told them I had a gluten allergy, the team changed gloves, cleaned the area, and brought in new utensils & cutting board. Super impressed. Great experience.

All the meats and sauces were gluten free! I told them we had celiac and they immediately took off gloves, took all their utensils to the back, and cleaned their table. Came back with a clean cutting board, grabbed new gloves and utensils for us. The preparers brought out new sides with clean utensils for our order. The fries aren’t gluten free.

They change gloves and cutting boards/knife in front of you. The brisket was great, the sausage had a good flavor but I am not a fan of tough sausage casings. The pickles were fantastic. Not many of the sides are gluten free. Great experience

When you get to the counter to order and tell the person you have celiac, they change gloves and get a new cutting board and knife, then that staff member handles your sides for you as well. Besides the meats, a good number of their sides and their sauces also are GF. Great outdoor seating! And great takeout

Our daughter is Celiac and they know exactly what to do at Lewis Barbecue to accommodate her. They change their gloves, the get out a new cutting board, they get brand new meat. Everyone we have ever had help us has been knowledgeable and kind. It is always an relaxing experience to eat there knowing we don't have to worry.

I said “celiac,” and the people on the line immediately began a glove change. Then one went to the back for the GF cutting board because they use the main cutting board for meat and bread. Everything on the menu was GF except 2 sides. The food was great, which is high praise coming from this Texan!

Their food is amazing and their staff is well trained. None of the meat has gluten in the spice or sauces. All sauces are made in house and are GF. Some of the sides, including the potato salad, collards and beans, are GF. If you say you have an allergy or are celiac, they will bring out a clean cutting board and knife and cut only from uncut meats. Safest place in town for celiacs and I run into many here who say it’s the only place they feel comfortable going to. Amazing food too!
