Food is delicious and I have never been sick I’ve had the bbq meats and the catfish with good luck. It’s been a while since I’ve gone but each time was delicious and safe for me!

Some of the best BBQ I've eaten in ages. I can't believe I missed this when last in Worcester this summer. Great ribs and reasonable prices. Excellent service to boot. Be careful, the full slab is huge.

Great BBQ. Not too sweet, and the perfect amount of smoke. Ribs and beans were great! Waitress was knowledgeable re gf diet and recommended avoiding one of the sauces.

BBQ meats are gf. Lots of items marked gf that are not celiac safe because of shared fryer. They were not careful and put cornbread on the plate.

Delicious pulled pork! Meals come with 2 sides- I ordered apple slaw & mashed potatoes (both gluten free & yummy).

Celiac friendly with a knowledgeable staff. As a habit, I always ask for the kitchen staff to change gloves before preparing my meal.

Lots of cross contamination here. They state they are really only good for those who are "gluten intolerant"

While waiting to attend an event at Clark University (less than 10 minutes away), my wife and I needed somewhere to eat dinner. Found this place on the Find Me Gluten-free app and wanted to give it a go.

We ordered the combo platter with brisket, ribs and pulled pork. For sides, we got apple slaw and cucumber salad and the cornbread. We shared the platter between us and it was plenty of food; I am not a small man. Except for the cornbread, the entire thing was gluten-free and we loved every bite. The brisket was incredibly tender from the fat, the ribs were fall off the bone with a dry rub but no sauce until you add your own, and the pulled pork was moist with great bark on the end. The three sauces (Carolina, KC, and Louisiana) were exceptional in their variety.

The price was higher than we are used to at 20.99 for the combo but it was well worth it for the quantity and the quality.

Have at her if you're ever in Wistah!

Gluten free items clearly stated on menu, including side dishes and BBQ meats! Server was helpful in answering questions about the BBQ sauce (which ones were G-Free) and even double checked with the kitchen. Very accommodating, so happy one of my favorite restaurants is a safe place for this celiac!

No dedicated gluten-free menu, but all BBQ meats were gluten free. Asked server if BBQ sauce was GF, she was knowledgeable and made sure to double check with the kitchen. Great experience!

The wait staff was not knowledgeable at all about celiac. they advertise a gluten free menu but do not fully understand it. The manager was extremely rude when we asked her general questions. I will never go back there again.
