Good food and friendly service. The server assured me the marked menu items were indeed GF, and gave the kitchen a heads up for me to protect against cross contamination.

Great food and relatively easy to eat here if you’re gluten-free or have an allergy. As always, they can’t guarantee no cross-contamination, but I’ve been fine. Stay away from the fried and breaded stuff, the gumbo, and the suffering sweet sauce.

The meats and other sauces are fine. I’ve even had the catfish fingers, which are coated in cornmeal, without any trouble. But there’s plenty to choose from. Some of their waiters have been there for 20+ years, so they KNOW the menu. Highly recommended.

Tested the suffering sweet BBQ sauce with my Nima sensor and it does have gluten. The waiter told me it did, the manager said it didn't. The waiter knew best! The other sauces are listed as gluten free and I've had no trouble with them.

They have a gf menu, but some things on that menu are cross contaminated (like the sweet potato fries) so be sure to double check. I got the pulled pork, baked beans, and a sweet potato. Delish!!!

Great service, the server was able to point out gluten free sides and the only sauce that was not gluten free was the one with mustard! I had the pick three BBQ plate!

Great bbq! Most bbq items are gluten free (and marked on the menu). Mild, sweet, and hot bbq sauces are also gluten free.

To me, there is nothing spectacular about the food. It's neither bad nor good. However, they said they had a gluten-free menu. I arrived and was very excited that they had a separate gluten-free menu. I was tired and not really thinking to question the waitress. She was very friendly and appeared knowledgeable. Wings were on the menu. Yay! I was SO excited. I was thinking that I was going to get wings that were fried in their very own frier and I was in heaven! Sweet potato fries were on the menu as well. Halfway through the fries, I saw that I had a stray okra (battered in gluten, of course) nicely sitting in my fries.

The negatives

The bread was placed closer to me than my husband (even though she was told I CAN NOT have gluten!)

My food wasn't flagged

My food was absolutely contaminated

This place is NOT gluten-free NOT celiac friendly!

Stopped in while traveling through. Food was “ok”. Atmosphere was fun. Gluten free menu was helpful for ordering.
