Staff was knowledgeable and provided me with allergen list. Fantastic pork and probably the best cole slaw I have ever had.

My wife is gluten sensitive. We are here and did not have any reaction. The bbq and some of the sides were gluten-free. The cashier who took our order knew what she could have.

We went for lunch and the portions were large. If you aren’t that hungry consider splitting an entree.

We had the chopped BBQ. We didn’t read the description so didn’t realize they had crispy pig skin in the meat which is something we didn’t have before and didn’t care for - thus one of the reasons we didn’t do 5 stars.

I’ve eating here 10+ times and always had a great experience. All of their meat is GF and so is the slaw. I alert them that I am celiac and they take appropriate measures to ensure safety.

They did not have a separate GF menu, but they did have an allergen chart at the register. The cashier also put a special note in the computer for my order noting that I was Celiac so that the kitchen would change gloves for me.

I ate here and enjoyed the food. While the menu doesn't list what is gluten free, the person at the counter where you register had a chart. (Basically avoid ordering breads, fried things, and Mac & cheese.)

I felt really good afterwords, and really enjoyed the BBQ & slaw. The potato salad was okay. The sauces have labels listing the ingredients, and are delicious. Enjoyed the outdoor seating, but indoor seating is also available. Parking along the street was pretty easy.
