Amazing. Always a treat when I can have legit bbq and not get sick from it. Asked a ton of questions. Looks like the pork and lamb ribs are the best bet when it comes to gluten AND dairy free. Also the wings apparently. Sadly no sides seemed safe so did a plain arugula salad. Definitely would come back. Great service!!

Bartender is quite knowledgeable and was more than willing to confirm what is safe. Meats ( except Keilbasa ) are GF, and the sauces are GF though the Aardvark hot sauce is made in a shared facility. Otherwise, nothing breaded or battered gets into the fryers, so do the potatoes. They are heavenly! As the brisket....wow!!!

I got a confirmation that the soy sauce that they use in their BBQ sauce is Tamari, which is in fact GF! Absolutely delicious meats, though they do use a shared fryer for their potatoes.

Looking forward to coming back the next time I'm in town.

I went a few months ago and based on the other review I ordered the brisket and it was delicious... but I got a stomach ache! I thought it was cause because I cheated on dairy free. Today I returned for lunch and the waitress informed me that the BBQ sauce contains soy sauce! It would make it so much easier if the menu was marked :-). Also switch that soy sauce to gluten free because your BBQ is AMAZING! If you have celiacs or are really sensitive ask lots of questions! If Mabel's can update their menus I would boost to 4 stars 5 stars for a gf BBQ sauce! The turkey and coleslaw was great!

5 stars for the Lean beef brisket. So delicious. I tweeted Michael Symon and he graciously tweeted back and said much of the menu is gluten free. He also said the BBQ sauce is GF. I only gave it three stars bc I like to see for myself the labeling on the menu instead of trusting someone and getting sick. If they made the menu celiac friendly with appropriate labeling this place would get 5 stars. My server didn't seem to care bc they brought my meal out with bread on my plate. I had a friend take the bread off and I ate my brisket after making sure there were no bread crumbs on it. Great place but it would be stellar if there was appropriate care by the server and GF labeling on the menu.
