I’m fine with food that touches gluten, but I got so sick from eating here.

I had burnt ends, sliced beef, beans and a strawberry margarita. They weren’t very sure on all of the food items, but said these were gf but obviously something wasn’t. I even called back to check and they insisted it was all gf.

Waitress was knowledgeable about GF, another server brought out food but had to return first plate due to putting on bread (Servrr mistake) so not as attentive as they should be. Food was good, no reaction.

Decent, not great, BBQ. The lack of gluten-free fries was a disappointment. I at least haven't gotten sick from eating there.

Very overpriced BBQ!!! Had to send food back because bread was on plate. Once fixed I didn’t have issues. Not large portions so I was disappointed and felt I overpaid.

In my opinion, Smokehouse food quality and flavor is among the top in the KC area. They do not have a gluten-free menu, but they provide an information sheet describing safe menu items. Our server had a good grasp of gluten-free and, from her description, it appeared the kitchen staff does, too. Fries are not gluten-free. I ate the burnt end platter (beef and ham chunks) with cole slaw and bbq beans and had no reaction. We recommend this restaurant. They have two other locations in the KC area and one in Columbia, MO, but I have not dined at them.

Would not recommend, server was not knowledgeable and when we asked she went and spoke with the host and other wait staff and not the kitchen. The reply was if it’s not on the menu it’s not going to be gluten free. So there salad and baked potatoes are not gluten free. Both my wife and child have sever Celiac and we made it clear to the server. Both there meals were served with a slice of bread, again told them both meals had to be remade and not just the bread removed. Several minutes later there food came out, quality was mediocre, I paid full price plus tip and both my wife and child felt ill the rest of the night.

My daughter and I are celiac this restaurant was horrible!!!! They claimed we couldn’t have a baked potato for risk of gluten however served bread on our plates. Then when they had to take it back to fix it was not a great experience. When leaving the manager then said “was it good enough for you the second time”

When asked for the gluten free menu, they brought it over and also made sure to note that the only bbq sauce that was gf was the mild one. There was a good variety available as gf and both of my sons got exactly what they requested. No bread was on their plates.

Server was very friendly and understanding when told I have Celiac. The first time my plate did come out with bread. The server caught it just as I was about to point it out. He was extremely apologetic and took it to be remade. The food as always was excellent. Grilled veggies are amazing had never tried them before because I used to love the fries before my diagnosis. A bit pricey, but isn't everything now.
