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.

Extensive GF menu. Staff was helpful. Food was very flavorful, but pretty salty. I had the chicken and a sample of baby back ribs. Ribs were fall off the bone tender. Delicious baked beans and really good fries.

Staff was excellent answering questions for Celiac. I had the brisket (slightly dry) and LOVED the Smoky Mountain sauce. All sauces, except one, are gluten free. Had no symptoms after eating here and will definitely be back again!!!!

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! He explained they needed to redo the order, change gloves and clean their work space. The food was safe and oh so delicious. My new favorite place to eat!

Oh my goodness. Very Celiac friendly. As others mentioned they have a separate menu and make an announcement when ordering. Lots of options and sides.My husband and I shared brisket, ribs, fries and coleslaw. Only one sauce isn't GF and that is the "Texas Twang". Wonderful start to vacation.

Staff is very well trained, when I mentioned no bread on my order the cashier asked if I was gluten free before I even told her. Good selection of GF choices but beware the sauces, only 2 of the six are safe. I didn't see a gluten free menu displayed but it's easily found on their website.

Might want to tell them a few extra times that you need gluten free - cashier and also tell the line if you don’t hear and see the cashier so it. Never saw that they cross contaminated me but a few times they took my tray and made me a new one after i/they asked if it was gluten free on pick up. Probably been here a 30 times so far. Never sick afterwards. And they have some cool sodas that I haven’t seen since childhood!

Great meal. GF menu. First time there, I ordered and didn’t see GF on the ticket so I went back up to the counter to double check before my meal was ready. The cashier didn’t tag it but the line stopped and listened as the manager announced my name and ticket needed to be GF. Tons of choices, no GF bread but that’s ok with me. Best of all... I didn’t get sick afterwards so... 5 stars! I’ll be back soon!!!

Gluten free menu, dedicated fryer, and staff are generally knowledgeable. Great food, especially the pulled chicken. I HAVE gotten sick once at Mission BBQ- not this location- because I requested the Texas BBQ sauce. Be aware, this one is NOT gf- and my server didn't know or remember to warn me. Please check the menu for the list of safe sauce options. Apart from that little incident, I'm happy with their menu and protocols.

When you get to the counter you can ask for a gluten free menu or you can check it out on their website. A lot of the menu can be prepared gf and all the sauces, but the Texas Twang, are gluten free. Great food and very friendly workers who take cross contamination seriously. I feel safe eating here at a person with Celiac Disease. Highly recommend to anyone needing to avoid gluten.

All the meats are gluten free. And all but 1 of the sauces are GF too. Staff knowledgeable and helpful. Fries are in a dedicated fryer. No GF buns, but can get the meat over a salad. Delicious and family all enjoyed their food as well. The kids couldn’t stop talking about how good it was, so we even went back a week later when we were in DC again.
