A great experience. My 8yr old guy was happy with his French fries and brisket. The only thing he wanted that he couldn’t get was the cornbread. The separate gf menu was awesome!

Ate here yesterday with no issues. Told them I was celiac and they changed gloves and cleaned workstation. Fryer is just used for fries. I have a Nima gluten sensor and fries and pork tested gluten free. I didn’t try any sauces but they say two are GF. This morning no symptoms of being glutened.

This place is really good if you like BBQ! All the meats and most of the sauces are GF and the fries were made in a separate fryer which was nice! The staff was very knowledgeable and the food was tasty!

I ordered pulled chicken, fries and coleslaw and only used 2 of the sauces listed on the GF menu. I had the worst gluten reaction I have ever had. I love the idea of this restaurant but their food was not good enough to be worth a night of horrible things later. Probably cross contamination so order with caution.

I am a very sensitive celiac, and I ate here without any problems. I had the 2 meat sampler with fries. The person taking my order was knowledgeable and reassured me that the fryer is only used for fries. Five of the six sauces are GF. Stay away from the Texas Twang.

Wow! Food is spectacular. Choice of sauces on the table that are all GF except 1. But the concept of honoring America by stopping at noon to stand for the flag as the National Anthem plays was something special. Decor brought in from locals who served our country in military or 1st responders.

Visited here while traveling to Nashville Opryland area & visited because this app stated it was a gluten free option. This is a counter service restaurant. The cashier that took our order seemed impatient that we needed some time to look at the menu as we’ve never eaten here. We explained to her our daughter was celiac & we needed a gf menu. Daughter ordered a half rack of baby back ribs & the green beans from the gf menu. The cashier shouts the order to the kitchen & said gluten free. Food was not marked as gluten free. Daughter loved her meal BUT!!! had a bad reaction after eating here & was incredibly sick a few hours after eating the bbq. Therefore - I do not recommend for celiacs as I do not think they take precautions to ensure it’s gluten free or safe from cross contamination.

Delicious!!! We had the spare ribs, moist brisket, pulled chicken, jalepeno cheese sausage, brisket green beans, and French fries (dedicated fryer!!). All sauces are gluten free with the exception of one. My favorite was the Memphis flavor! All was delicious! We had plenty to take back to the hotel. Definitely just let them know you have celiac!!

Delicious brisket. Was nervous about using the sauces and ketchup due to CC, but I took the top off to try to avoid that. Haven’t had barbecue since the diagnosis, and was very grateful not to have a reaction.

This place is a must go for celiac’s( I am very sensitive) , the manager asked me if I had been there before and I said I haven’t. She broke down each sauce (5/6 of them are gluten free) and explained their process of making the food and everything is made fresh every morning. Awesome gluten free menu to pick from, I ordered brisket and fries and I haven’t been able to find a trust worthy bar b q place in about a year. I highly recommend this place to any celiacs as well as people who are not sensitive to wheat or gluten.

One of the best BBQ places I have experienced. There are a lot of options.

Each plate comes with cornbread so you just need to let the staff know about gluten issues when you order.

Ate here on a quick trip to Nashville based on reviews from this site. Place was super clean, staff was great and food was fast and yummy. We ended up eating here the next day too. First day they accidentally put cornbread on my plate, but as soon as I started to comment they took the tray and replaced with all new minus the cornbread. Pulled pork and FRENCH FRIES! Yum. Son who also can't eat gluten enjoyed trying all (minus one that isn't gfree) the bbq sauces. No one had issues either meal.

I was so impressed by the way they handled my food after I informed them I had celiac. They changed their gloves, were very careful in putting my food together, wiped down the prep area, had a dedicated gluten free menu with many options, etc! Food was tasty! I especially enjoyed the pulled pork (all pork no fat) and the cole slaw. Great place!

I'm mildly obsessed with this place. FINALLY someplace I can eat real food when we go out to a movie. The pulled pork is amazing. The fries are gluten free (Yaaaaay!) Just tell them no corn bread- ask them to make it gluten free. They will change their gloves etc. They always do a great job and make me feel like they care. I eat here all the time. Honestly the portions are so huge that my fiancé and I end up splitting a meal sometimes!

Great attention to detail. Employees wiped down work station and changed gloves. This place gets it.

Along with being celiac friendly - the food is just amazing. I also am really proud of the way they acknowledge those who served/are serving. This is the way veterans should be treated everywhere.

I wish I could give this place 6 stars because that's just how great my experience was here.

The person who took my order didn't seem to understand what Celiac meant so the server put cornbread on my tray. When I said I couldn't eat off that tray the manager was AWESOME!
