Based on other reviews, I traipsed across the terminal to check them out. Did not disappoint! Fries in a dedicated fryer with rice oil. Ribs are tender, they will put the sauce on the side for you to be sure no cross contamination. Fries, pickle and coleslaw are also dairy free. So happy to eat a real meal at the airport

Amazing find in the airport. I got the Chckless dinner (boneless checken breast) and a double order of fries from their dedicated fryer. It was very good!

They changed their gloves, and handled everything perfectly!

The employee I spoke to was very knowledgable and knew what was safe and what was not. I had the ribs, coleslaw and fries. Nothing with gluten goes into the frier so the fries are good to eat!

The food was delicious, really flavorful.

If you're worried about CC this is the only restaurant in terminal 2 you'll be eating at.

We would have enjoyed and considered our meal totally delicious even outside an airport but a complete surprise within. Approaching San Diego ‘s terminal 2 gate 40 we recognized what smelled like real BBQ. We chanced it and wet thrilled. Plus, they are knowledgeable about celiac disease and assured me they have a dedicated fryer for the French fries and their BBQ sauce is gluten free. Lastly, their seating area is widely spaced and airy. Highly recommended.

Great tasting food but turns out the fries aren’t really safe even in the dedicated fryer because they combine oil at end of day. I ate the sausage and beans and they were delicious!

When I said I had a gluten allergy, the cashier cheerfully told me that their sauce is gf and they could make anything for me, save for the mac and cheese. The fryer is dedicated to fries, so it's safe. They preemptively offered to change gloves and everything.
