    I was very impressed. When I called to order my party pack, they explained what was (bbq sauce) and wasn't (a few sides) GF. The GF corn muffins were pretty good, and the entire meal was delicious. I was totally confident my meal was GF.

    Tasty and was so nice to have the GF corn muffins to start. Our server even brought me dairy free butter for my muffins! I had ribs and brisket and my daughter (also celiac) had the Cobb salad with a side of fries!

    This place is awesome!! We went here with our family of 5. Three of us have Celiac. A huge selection of Gluten Free items. All BBQ sauce is gf. They even had a dedicated fryer for gf fries. And they gave us gf corn bread muffins!! Awesome food, fantastic drinks, a great night out! Highly recommend!

    An amazing place to go if you are gluten free or not! Over half the menu is naturally gluten free. The baby back ribs were excellent - probably the best I have ever had! Great choices - ribs, chicken, steak and seafood. The best was the grilled artichoke appetizer with 3 sauces.

    Ribs were great as was the gluten free cornbread, but there were mixups with the sides causing doubts in care and safety.

    Very delicious food. Menu clearly shows your gf options or tells you to ask your server if it can be made gf with a substitute, which they may not always have. I was hoping to have their corn bread but it was all gone.

    Love this place but this time the waitress put the gf cornbread in a basket with regular corn bread. Usually it is served separate and by a different waiter.

    Excellent barbecue, with all the classics like ribs, steak, potato salad, beans, etc being gluten free. They even have GF cornbread! Staff is very knowledgable, and it's one of my favorite places to eat in Orange County. I have Celiacs and have never gotten sick there. Great restaurant!

    Went in last night for dinner. The first rib combo is delicious. It comes with gluten-free corn bread and I had a Redbridge beer and grilled artichokes. Naples is amazing!

    they are amazing here. staff is well informed and will make sure everything your meal comes with is ok for you to eat! Love their ribs!! my only issue was that I didn't care for the gf cornbread I got that night. I plan on trying it again next time I go to see if the first time was just a dry/crispy batch. highly recommend!

    What a great restaurant! Our server was very knowledgeable about the gluten free options and boy were they tasty. We went right between happy hour and dinner and there was no wait. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

    We were on Irvine and wanted a good meal. We found this restaurant. OMG, it is sooooo good, the portions are large and the service was great too. And the warm lemon-scented cloth at the end of the meal was a definitely a plus. We definitely will come back when we return to Orange County
