Followed previous reviewers' suggestions and stopped here on our travels. I can't say enough good about this place! Owner has celiac, so there are very specific protocols in place to keep us safe. I had a pulled pork SANDWICH! WITH a bun!!! What a rare treat! Also got a side salad without cheese or croutons. Everything was very good. The pork is so often dry and you have to drown it in sauce to be able to eat it...not the case at Smokey Bear's! Can't wait for our next trip down I-75 so we can stop here again!!

Friendly service, great food, and good gluten-free options! The only way it could be better is if they had a dedicated fryer. Ask for their gluten-free menu, which clearly specifies which items are Celiac-safe.

I am one happy momma. After reading reviews decided to try this place out while driving through. The owner has Celiac so the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They even have gf brownies!!! The only downside is, there aren’t dedicated fryers. But plenty of safe sides to choose from.

Holy cow! Wonderful barbeque. Grilled buns that made me second guess the gf factor. Celiac's are told to avoid the fryer. Best gf menu and desserts available. All for a reasonable cost. Very impressed, and no tummy trouble at all!

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable! As soon as I said I was celiac she told me the owner would want to chat with me. He too is celiac! They have dedicated space and very thorough kitchen procedures. I had bbq, grilled corn and Cole slaw. It was all wonderful!

Excellent BBQ with GF buns and bread. The manager says that they are looking to get a second fryer soon so they can have a dedicated GF fryer. Asked my opinion on two versions of a GF menu. Stop and support this business!

I ate here a few times while visiting a college with my son. On one visit I ate the pulled pork with the sweet barbeque sauce on the table with a gluten free bun and it was awesome! The next time I had a half slab of the baby back ribs and more of the pulled pork. I loved the ribs. The owner has celiacs and does a great job of making tasty and safe food. Thank you!

We just had one of the best meals ever at Smokey Bears BBQ in Corbin, KY. I have Celiac and the owner (what a great guy) personally talked to me at our table before I ordered and made sure my meal was to my liking. I can't wait to return! I ordered the pulled pork, which was so good, that I didn't even need bbq sauce. The gluten free garlic toast was incredibly DELICIOUS! I made my pork sandwich with the garlic toast. I added the grilled corn on the cob (buttered and salted) to my meal. Prices are good. Service with a smile. And the owner is just great! We don't live in the area, but will definitely be back!! Darn good food. Hidden Gem. 5 stars! Husband had regular meal & he thoroughly enjoyed his as well.

The owner has celiac disease and has trained staff well to avoid cross contamination. The burgers with gluten free buns are amazing. There are even gluten free hoagies for cheese steak sandwiches. Fries are not in a dedicated fryer but there are chips and side salads with gluten free croutons for sides. Awesome sweet tea too!
