The bun held together until the last bite!

Delicious! So many GF options, and there is a dedicated GF fryer, so I could have fries! Highly recommend the butterscotch pudding for dessert.

I’ve only experienced their takeout, but it was great! GF fries with no cross contamination, and a burger bun that didn’t immediately fall apart. And the burger was genuinely good too! My non-GF boyfriend enjoyed his meal too. Our food arrived and it was marked with what was GF and what wasn’t. I’m excited to go back in person!

Pretty decent gluten free menu! Have been here twice. Burger with the gluten free bun is good, fries in a dedicated fryer so a bonus! Pulled pork platter is good too, great red skinned mashed potatoes and coleslaw

Separate GF menu with a little bit of everything available, even two dessert options. Waitress saw right away I had a GF menu and asked if it was for an allergy. The waiter announced my plate was GF as he set it down. Fries and burger were good, and I took brisket and sides to go, which were also good.

Waiter was exceedingly knowledgeable and conscientious about the gluten-free menu and other allergens. Food was delicious. I had the pulled pork with fries, brussels sprouts, and grits. Some of the best barbecue in the area. Will come back regularly.

Great gluten-free fries, barbecue, and desserts (try the toffee pudding). I am a sensitive Celiac, and I've never had a reaction after eating here. They offer a gluten free menu. I always confirm with the waiter that the fries are in a separate fryer.

While the food was excellent, bbq was superb, I am confused as to why this place has such positive reviews from the celiac community. They do have a gluten free menu, and I did stress that I was celiac and spoke extensively about the food prep, but I am currently having a severe reaction from my meal. I would say if you are gluten free by choice, then it is a great place but otherwise I would steer away if you are sensitive to gluten exposure of any sort.

On a side note: they seem to be VERY unstaffed and as a result our service was terrible and slow. I wouldn’t recommend eating here if you’re in a hurry.

The first time I went on a weekend and the waitress didn’t want to deal with GF or DF and so I only had a salad and a cucumber vodka drink. I was so sad that they were not accommodating. THEN I WENT BACK for their drinks with my daughter in law during the weekday let’s say 10:30am. Perfect time, not to busy and this time the waitress said there are many things they can accommodate! What a surprise for me, they can accommodate or fix up many of the dishes to make them GF and DF. The staff were extremely efficient in making sure the dishes I ordered were made with the adjustments for GF and DF. I WILL BE GOING BACK! But not on the weekend. Having tasted some of the food I highly recommend this place. Also, they are opening a new one outside the beltway.

I was so happy to see a gluten free menu. I told the server about gluten free and placed an order for the meat and 2 sides. When the crispy Brussel Sprouts came I ate a couple and they were delicious. As I looked further I saw breaded fried onions mixed in and asked the server. Well they gave me the wrong thing and it had gluten and I have been feeling awful ever since.

They have many great GF options on their GF menu (available online too). Have gone multiple times and have not had issues. I feel really safe eating here.

I let my server know I have a GF allergy (I didn’t mention celiac even though I am because sometimes it’s exhausting) when I ordered a salad that came with croutons. When the server was about to set the dish down, he noticed the croutons were present and immediately said he’d take care of it. When he delivered the salad without croutons, I asked if it was a new salad and he assured me it was new. Without prompting, he explained that they will always make a new salad because some people are sensitive to cross contact and contamination.

Legitimately delicious food. I got the pulled pork with baked beans and cole slaw which was a perfect pairing. I also let them know that I had a celiac and they volunteered to have the chefs wash their hands and makes sure everything would be safe. I ended up feeling alright after the meal.

There is a gluten free menu and dedicated fryers for their gluten free items (fries, chicken wings, etc). The server was very knowledgeable and told us if he labeled the order gluten free, the computer wouldn't let him add an item to the order that was not on the gf menu. He said all gf items are celiac safe.

I ordered a gluten-free burger and fries. The manager told me the fries were in a dedicated fryer. They normally mix burgers and buns on the same grill and when I explained that I have celiac, the manager offered to cook the burger in a separate clean pan. The gluten-free burger bun was extremely tasty – – way better than most normal buns. The shoestring fries, which they call something else, were exquisite. It’s been about four hours since lunch and I have had no adverse reactions. Again, the meal was delicious and I plan to return.
