I thought this place was absolutely delicious. I didn't get sick here, but it does explicitly say "gluten conscious", not "gluten-free". It is a separate menu, so ask for it at the hostess desk.

Locals love it and the ribs were to die for. Totally worth the stop.

Love Lucilles and their food. Have never gotten sick here, but it’s important to do your homework before you go on what you can and can’t eat. They don’t make GF to order but have a list of items that are already gluten free, so cross contamination may be high.

They had a separate GF menu, although the staff were not knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. The first plate they gave me wasn’t washed properly and had old food on the underside which made me very very nervous. The waitress even claimed that “she didn’t think” the dressing provided on the GF menu was in fact GF. She was not sure which salad dressings were GF so I became even more nervous. I did not feel safe eating here. I ended up just getting a baked potato and had to eat dinner when I got home. Unfortunately not a good experience.

Ordered take out from here and explained I have celiac disease and will get sick with anything that has gluten in it, they said they understood. THERE WAS ONE LONELY MACARONI NOODLE IN MY STEAMED VEGETABLES! You kidding me? I feel like that was done on purpose.

A little pricey depending on what you get. I got pulled pork, mashed potatoes and the baked beans. It was all very good. My father-in-law had a non-gluten free meal and thought it was really good too.

Lucille's is great and their gluten free menu is very extensive. However, I've eaten there twice now (I thought I was sick from something else containing gluten the first time) and I've been very sick both times. I didn't want to be negative but I can't really trust this restaurant especially when I specify that I cannot eat gluten and end up getting sick anyway.

Despite ordering off the GF menu and explaining that I had an allergy, my food still came out with a side of Mac and cheese. Add to this that it was the worst Brisket I have ever had, dry, tiny pieces, everything was either fat or burnt. Do not recommend

I liked it a lot! Great bbq. Seems they have pretty authentic fried chicken and biscuits too which my partner got but this is not gluten free of course. We enjoyed our experience and really appreciated they had a separate GF menu.
