Should have checked the reviews before eating here! Clearly marked menu, but high chance of cross contamination. Staff ambivalent and not very helpful. However my partner enjoyed his meal so possibly good for those with mild intolerance.
Our family favorite. We’ve been a dozen times. Amazing barbecue. They know gluten issues. And the food is DELICIOUS!! great spot for young families because you can get your food minutes after you walk in.
Horrible food, don’t waste your time or money
Barbecue sauce is gluten free & list meats and sides. Ask the staff to change their gloves before touching your food - but heads up - they use their hands to portion/serve everything so there is a chance of cross contamination in the food itself. I've never had a reaction - recommend the pulled pork!
I was really looking forward to eating here based on other people’s reviews and the information on their website. However, when I arrived, the guy working there informed me nothing was safe for people who have Celiac because all of the bread is put on the cutting board along with all of the meat. Any extra meat that falls off of a sandwich is just scooped back into the container with the rest of the meat.
This BBQ is delicious! I went in after reading the other review. Most of the meat is GF and the potato salad, baked beans, and coleslaw are too. The crispy chicken is not though, and one of the preparers told me it was before the other corrected him. Innocent mistake and no harm done, but just double check with them for each item because he had said all of the meat was. I didn't ask about the dedicated fryer. Very good lunch. Will go back.
As a Celiac, no cross contamination is a must when eating out. I called Mighty Quinn's before going, and the gal who answered the phone was very knowledgeable of Celiacs and explained their process for ensuring no cross contamination. Tell the "meat slicer" at the front of the order line that you have Celiacs. He'll tell everyone down the line to change gloves and he'll slice the meat with a new knife and on a new piece of butcher paper. All the sides are new and taken from the back. She said she didn't recommend eating anything from the fryer - I appreciated her honesty. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating - and I don't feel sick the day after! Thanks, Quinns!
They do not have a gluten free menu. However they do have an informative allergen list. GF eaters will enjoy eating here. I had burnt bits naked with mayo based coleslaw, pickled cucumbers, burnt bits baked beans, salted caramel ice cream, and lemon iced tea. Everything was very good and it made me willingly and happily eat baked beans. 😃
Food was delicious. I have tried the brisket, the ribs and the wings. They were amazing. The brisket was melt in your mouth delicious. It was also very nice to be able to have really good wings. My only suggestion would be to put the sauce on the side of the wings. The sauce is HOT which I like but after a number of the wings my taste buds were numb. Lol I don't know about you but I like to enjoy the flavors. I definitely recommend this place if you want some good BBQ.
Excellent authentic BBQ. All the meats are gfcf. The only gluten items are obvious things like bread, and they will change gloves if you ask for gf. Most items are dairy free except fairly obvious things like sweet potatoes and a side that has cheese. A little pricey, but an entree and two sides can be a meal for two.
Currently three locations in NYC. Almost everything is gluten free and the fryer is dedicated. Great barbeque at reasonable prices. As a celiac, I always feel bad asking that gloves be removed but as soon as I said I needed to be gluten free, the server did so without my asking. Highly recommend.
Wasn't sure from the online menu what I could eat - then I found their allergens list. Turns out everytyhing is gluten-free except the bread and the sweet potatoes. I ordered the brontosaurus rib, beans, and fries. The b. rib was an immense piece of falling-off-the-bone g-f beef - delicious and tender. The beans were a wonderful blend of spicy sweet flavour. Note: if you get the brontosaurus rib, make sure you share with someone or plan for two meals. All in all, a great bbq experience.
BOTH of the guys on the line washed their hands and changed gloves without me asking, and they gave me a full, detailed run down of everything I could eat (almost everything is GF). Super accommodating. I felt safe eating here and better yet, I didn't get sick. The brisket and beans are to die for. Cider is available.
