    Had the 8.99 meat and 3 sides lunch. Pulled Pork with baked beans, steamed broccoli and cole slaw. Cole slaw was watery, beans were ok. Meat was very good. My daughter had the gf kids wings with garlic Parmesan. My mom had the brisket.

    I want a huge fan of their bbq sauce. However the pulled pork was excellent! I wouldn't say this place is celiac friendly (my plate came out with cornbread even after I told them about my allergy) but the waitress was super sweet and had the kitchen remake everything

    Talked to waiter about celiacs and how sensitive I was and was assured things would be done to avoid getting sick. Half of the sauces on the gf menu contained gluten after asking for them to double check and my salad came out with croutons. Ended up getting sick despite having them make a new salad and having them make my meal without the sauce.

    Food was amazing. All 6 of us cleared our plates and all had different entrees: pulled pork, beef brisket, salad, wings, hamburger, hubs eats gluten fried onion rings sandwich. We will be coming back. Service was amazing as well. Prices were very reasonable. Menu was labled for GF options. No dedicated fryer but we no longer react to foods that share a fryer.

    Spoke with manager on the phone beforehand. She is familiar with celiac disease and assured me they do everything they can to limit CC with separate utensils and prep space. Be sure to tell server you are celiac so they're extra careful. Food was delicious! I got baby back ribs , green beans with almonds, and dirty rice minus the gravy. I want to come here again before I leave Hilton Head

    The waiter and manager were very helpful and kind. Ribs were really good! I did notice that the salad listed gluten free had blue cheese and the salmon had soy something in the description, so I stayed away from those items.

    My teenage daughter is Celiac and had no reaction from the salad ordered. Our server confirmed the cross contamination practice at the restaurant.

    They seem to be just going through the motions without caring about the results. The waiter did not understand what gluten was and didn't want to learn. After telling the waiter that my wife had celiac, he couldn't answer if any of the salad dressing were gf even though the menu said the salad was gf. When the salad arrived, a wheat bun was on the plate. When we sent it back, the plate came back in seconds so we're sure they simply took the bun off without worrying about cross-contamination.

    Great and clearly marked menu. Waitress, Tiffany, understood Celiac Disease and offered suggestions. The ribs were fantastic. Spoke with the manager. Told me they follow a kitchen protocol requiring the server to wash their hands before handling any GF food and dishes. Worth a meal or two if you have Celiac Disease. Bonus - prices are very reasonable!

    Hamburgers are not GF because they toast the buns on the same grill.

    We had a very nice experience yesterday. All gf items on the menu are clearly marked and there are some items that can be made gf that are not marked. Their BBQ sauce is gf so that broadens the choices vs a typical restaurant menu. Our server was very knowledgeable and the person who brought my food told me he has washed his hands before touching my plate. We will definitely be back!

    It was fantastic food! Ribs are insanely tender. Be careful tho and speak to a manager-as u always should, to make sure the kitchen is on the up and up GF wise! Sent out fried wings initially (which aren't GF) we caught it in time! Great outdoor patio! Will be back 4 sure!

    Excellent barbecue, GF items marked on the menu. So good that our group went back for dinner again two nights later. We went later in the evening, so having to wait wasn't an issue.

    For GF only expect barbecue. It is good, but waitress said the meats are all cooked together, risk of cross contamination. Also out of Red Bridge. We went really early, around 4:30 to beat the crowd. My family with no gluten issues loved it though.

    Delicious barbecue! All of their barbecue is gluten free so that made it easy. We went on a week night at 5:30 ad had to wait 20 minutes. They get crowded but are pretty quick at service. The menu is labeled with gluten free items except for the side dishes, but the server was knowledgeable about the sides. We got the family platter for 4 of us (2 adults, 2 children) and it was more than enough. Great prices too.

    Great ribs and brisket. It was a treat to have something other than a bland steak or seafood. Will definitely go there again.

    Picked dinner up here late last night after a long drive from nj. Large selection of items for those with celiacs. The rib tips and wings were delicious. This restaurant is extremely accommodating to all allergies.

    Monday night football – we had to go somewhere that had the game on! Typically sports bars are the last place you want to go if you have celiac. Tons of fried foods! I will say this place had several good options. I ended up with the beef brisket salad. Ahhmazing. The beef brisket was so tender and the meat was flavored nicely. No fatty pieces on the meet and the salad lettuce was fresh. They also said their wings were gluten free, which means they must cook them in a separate fryer than the regular fried foods. Highly recommended for a cheap bite to eat in Hilton Head! Aaron had tacos and really enjoyed them as well.
