    This will be a little long. I was so excited to go there because of so many great recommendations from multiple sources, including here. My experience was completely different. When ordering I asked which sauces were gluten free. An employee said, with great authority, that they all were. After ordering a rack of ribs, I went to taste the sauces to see what I liked. I got through half when I saw one labeled stout. I went back to the employee and he said that it was gluten free, that the alcohol is cooked out. I told him that the alcohol has nothing to do with gluten, and that gluten cannot be cooked out. He then stated that the vinegar ones were also not safe, that the packaging says it may contain gluten. Why did he not say that before? So I double checked that their original sauce was fine, they said yes. When they called my order, I noticed how dried out the ribs were. These were seriously the worst ribs I have ever eaten. I took them back to the counter and asked to speak to the manager. While waiting for my replacement ribs, I spoke with her. She said they recently changed the sauce recipes, and she believed the original sauce, and most of the others had a flour slurry mixed in. I had already eaten some of it. Then the cook came over and contradicted her, saying it was cornstarch only. The second ribs were still mediocre at best. The lack of knowledge and understanding of gluten free was disturbing, I recommend anyone on a gluten free diet stay far away.

    GF menu is posted right at the register. Wrote “Gluten Free” in big letters onto the top center of my platter without being asked to notify the kitchen - on their game!

    This BBQ establishment was recommended to me by the owners of Happy Creek Coffeehouse(This coffeehouse is 100% gf, go there!). All their meats are gf, and there are 5 sides we can choose from. There are 7 sauces we can have too. I got the pulled pork, which was excellent especially with the raspberry chipotle merlot sauce. I also got portions of the collard greens, baked beans, slaw and potato salad to try. While I like some more than others, I didn't regret any of them. Highly recommend this place.
