Based on other reviews we decided to give it a try. Definitely worth it!. Our waitress informed us the owners wife is celiac so they take it seriously especially when you tell them you have celiac. More than 1/2 the menu is gf or can be modified. I had the sampler (I couldn't decide) beef ribs, baby back & st Louis style 10 ribs total with mashed sweet potatoes and roasted vegetables, my wife got the 1/2 rack same sides, oh and the cornbread was very good we split a chocolate lava cake for dessert. No reaction whatsoever we would definitely return when in town again. Oh if you want Buffalo wings they will use a separate fryer to accommodate gf. Gf buns for burgers and sandwiches.

Always feel amazing after eating here! Servers are very knowledgeable & always reassure when needed. Even bring separate butters out with the GF cornbread. 11/10 will come back 👏🏻

We’ve eaten here multiple times and almost everything is gluten free. They even have gluten free cornbread but you have to wait a bit longer. Not only that but they have the best tasting ribs around. I can’t speak about the safety for a celiac but for a gluten intolerant person such as myself they are perfect.

Great gluten-free cornbread, delicious ribs. Food came out separately and it seemed like the employees all knew it was for an allergy.

We tested the chicken nuggets and they have gluten. I’m not sure about the fries (we tested them while they were in the same box as the chicken) and other meal options, but the chicken is not safe.

Great cornbread and seems very safe, but the barbeque here to me is just okay. The brisket feels like it sits in a stew of sauce all day or something and isnt very good, ive tried it twice and it was room temp both times. Beef ribs and hot sausage is good, pork ribs are okay. Need to try the chicken still. I am thankful for this place and that it can satisfy my craving.

Almost everything on the menu is available as gluten free and the BBQ sauce is also gluten free! The gluten free cornbread was absolutely delicious and our waiter brought it out on a separate plate with new butter so it wouldn’t be cross contaminated. They were also very good about making sure what my gluten issues were so that my food was just right. They also have a separate fryer for the gluten free food. 100% recommend this restaurant!

Great gluten-free choices! Had a separate fryer for french fries, etc. I usually can't have corn bread unless I make it at home. They even had gluten-free vegan butter! The staff was wonderful and neither my husband nor I could finish our meals.

vacationing nearby and I was very impressed with the whole experience. they have the menu well marked GF and even Caesin Free too. so, I was happy to feel so comfortable ordering BBQ ribs and not worrying about x-contamination. I didn't know they would bring out GF cornbread too! They have a dedicated fryer for french fries (yay!). was happy that I could eat at ease. lots of options for a safe GF meal.

Very safe place to eat. No worries about being glutened here — they get it. The only drawback is that you pretty much have to be into eating a lot of meat if you go here. Not many lighter food options. Or vegetables. The chicken sandwich is good though, if you're not looking to gorge yourself on ribs.

Staff very knowledgeable, almost all sauces are gf. The menu states what is ok and not for you to eat as well. Everything I got was amazing, their ribs are so good. My only disappointment was that my gf cornbread was a bit dry/crispy but I plan to go back and try it again to see if it was just a fluke! Highly recommend!

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Hands down awesome restaurant and extremely gluten-free friendly. Found it on the app! The ribs and steaks are top-quality and the service is great. If you haven't tried it yet, stop reading this and go now. It's that good.

Staff is very well educated. This was a great experience to eat here. I could order like a normal person and just tell them that I'm very allergic to gluten without having to explain everything to them. Love that they have GF cornbread.

I ate at this restaurant last fall (I am from Seattle and visit CA a couple of times a year to see family). What a wonderfully extensive gf menu--and the food was great-tasting, too! The server was very helpful, well-informed and patient, not only with us but with the family at the next table. They had 3 small children with dairy and gluten sensitivities and the waiter helped them choose food that made everyone happy. I would love to go back the next time I am in the area.
