    It was great. Basically everything is GF except burnt ends and anything fried. They use some sort of oil blend that contains gluten. I would highly recommend their fried items for your non-GF friends. I had them before I found out I was sensitive and they're great!

    I told them I had a gluten allergy at the counter. My tray came out with bread crumbs in the basket where they clearly had placed the bread that goes under the meat but then removed it. So while there was no bread served to me, my meat had been placed on an obvious pile of white bread crumbs. They were nice and replaced my meal but I can not give them a good rating if they are going to think that was acceptable when someone says they have a food allergy.

    The food is good and it might be alright if you aren't celiac or super sensitive. We ordered carry out for a birthday party, followed their instruction on what to order, and had to instruct them to be sure to change gloves during preparation. The food was delicious but my son and I both got sick. I was sad to have to toss the leftovers!

    Make sure to ask for no bread. Talked to the girl about gf options for a minute but I'm not sure she knew to take off the bread. Food was great though:

    This place was delicious and the staff was knowledgeable about which food was gluten free and how to avoid cross contamination. The food was running out when we were there at 5:30 p.m. with a very long line. So much to eat - most of the sides (anything not in the fryer) and the meat (except the burnt ends) are all gluten free. Will definitely return if in the area.

    Fantastic food! The staff is very knowledgable and helpful! All meat except burnt ends is GF. Most sides are GF too. The original sauce is not GF but they have two options that are! Great place!! Go early the line forms before they open and they often sell out!

    The staff was very knowledgeable about Gluten. All their meats are Gluten Free except Burnt Ends. Also the only two sauces that are Gluten Free are Spicy and Sweet. Also I was told that the Roasted Corn was the only Gluten side. I would double check with them on that. Overall it's an excellent place!

    1st things 1st... The food here is incredible! The staff at pappys was incredibly responsive to me when I let them know I have a serious allergy and needed their help ordering. The staff immediately changed their gloves and set up a safer area to prep my food. They also steered me away from things I couldn't have (burnt bits, fries, and fried corn) as well as let me know that their sweet sauce and spicy sauces are the only two that are gluten free. (Original is NOT gluten free!!!!) They were super careful, and didn't for one second make me feel like a pain for asking. I did however, have a small reaction. :-( So if you have celiacs, this is probably not the place for you.

    The dry rub on all the meats are gluten free. The original bbq sauce is gluten free. All sides, except for fried corn, is gluten free.. Sauces are on the table and self-applied.Just request they don't put bread on your plate. Staff is aware of allergies and very friendly. Great BBQ and no reactions!!
