    Gluten free menu, 8-10 GF beers and as many ciders. The meats (to die for) are all GF, 4 of the sauces are GF. Excellent sides - 6 are GF. Waitstaff knowledgeable. Didn't get sick. I'll be back!!

    I am a very sensitive Celiac for over 10 years. I've eaten here and a Slows to Go for years, never been sick once. The owners and Chef have gluten allergies and are very Knowledgable!!!

    delicious food and they do have a gluten free. states at the bottom that cross contamination is a possibility in their kitchen which made me very nervous, for very good reason! I had the brisket and green beans yet still had a reaction. Was not worth it even though it was yummy. I would not recommended to celiacs or sensitive intolerants like myself.

    (This review is for Slows On The Go in Cass Corridor). I ordered items marked gluten free, checked on the sauces, and yet I had a reaction. The food is good and the staff seem accommodating, but there's clearly the opportunity for contamination somewhere in the kitchen. Recommended if you only have a gluten sensitivity, but if you have Celiac Disease (like me) or, worse, children with Celiac or allergies, I'd recommend elsewhere.

    Amazing food, the smell when you walk into this place is awesome. They have everything on the regular menu clearly marked with a G for gluten free; they also offer gluten free beer and hard cider. This place will fill you up and you will leave with a huge smile on your face. As for the sauces I make sure every time I go which are gluten free just have to be safe than sorry.

    The review below us wrong, only done if the sauces are gluten free. Also, the staff is not very educated with celiac disease contamination issues. The cooks usually know, but just manger sure you are very clear with the wait staff

    Menu items are denoted with a "G" for gluten free and there were actually beer choices! Plus all the sauces were gluten free.
