Celiac

Overall Rating

Review


I let the cashier know that my daughter had celiac and they said no problem. Promptly washed the carving board and knives. I looked at their allergen menu online before going in—Nearly all meat (except the pulled pork) is GF. Lots of side options too. No reaction.

Just felt this place needed an update since it only had one negative review. I took a risk and went in blind - I had their baby back ribs, cole slaw, and potato salad and was completely fine.

Claim to have gluten free options however staff does not use gloves and is not educated on gluten - they thought it was butter. I contacted the manager the next day as I was violently ill afterwards and all he did was defend their procedures - that no one has ever asked them to wear gloves after handling bread when serving a celiac. Why do they have an allergen menu if they aren't going to have the simplest of procedures in place to ensure that cross contamination doesn't occur?

Celiac friendly?

Good barbecue. Sides are already packed to grab and there’s an allergen chart posted. I had a potato (huge) topped with BBQ beef plus tried cole slaw, 3 bean salad and beans. Nice balanced meal for traveling!

Well worth standing in line. Celiac - did not get glutened. Amazing brisket. Told them celiac and needed to be gluten free. We had a newer employee but another came over and helped and brought out an extra GF/allergy menu. They also changed gloves. Ordered brisket and jalapenos sausage along with cole slaw. Both sauces we used, original and sissy, were gluten free. No GF bread option (and they do not have corn bread on their menu at all). Most meats GF except pulled pork.

Ordered online and called first. The meats and sauces are gf except pulled pork I believe and most the sides except creamed corn and chile stew. Would want to check out the breakfast but the allergen menu lists them all with gluten, maybe they use flour tortillas. Everything was excellent.
