The waitress brought me an alergen menu that listed all of the menu items and what was gluten free friendly. She informed the kitchen that I was Celiac. It was easy to order, I had the sampler platter, and it was delicious! I chose a salad without croutons as one of my sides and it was the nicest dinner salad I've had in ages. I did not have any symptoms from eating there and I will definately go back any time I am in the area. Friendly and cheerful staff that went above and beyond.

I’ve not had a reaction. They have an allergies menu and they make sure to try not to cross contaminate.

I get the pulled chicken or pulled pork plate with cole slaw and a sweet potato. It comes with bread so be sure to ask them not to include that on the plate. Also, ask for real butter and a side of brown sugar instead of the butter that usually comes with a sweet potato. I've ever had an issue but remind them that therebis an allergy so that they'll be careful in the kitchen.

Mary, the manager brought my plate out separate to guard against cc. Server, though somewhat ignorant of cc, was also kind & accommodating. BBQ sauces, sw baked potato & coleslaw were just so-so but half-chicken was very tender & moist. Allergen list showed non-gf items so finding something to eat was frustrating bc you had to look in the menu 1st then check the list. Disappointed that gr beans weren't gf. Not sure if I will be back.

Good salad bar. Ribs were okay. Great allergen list and they didn't look at you like you are nuts when you request gluten free.

Sonny’s has GF meat, sauce and sides. They have a separate GF menu that list foods that have gluten in them.

I usually get sliced pork, chicken or ribs for my meat. Sides: baked beans, corn on cob or baked potato (if available).

Tell the waitress that is a gluten allergy, place your order and request No Bread and if the cooks would change thegloves you would appreciate that. Sonny’s has great BBQ.

Sonny’s has very good food. I have been at several different Sonny’s and have never had an issue. They do have a very old allergy menu that you can get an idea of what they offer. Basically, you can have meat, all sauces, baked beans, corn and backed potato(if offered). There may be a few more sides. I usually ask for sliced pork and double backed beans. Tell waitress/waiter about “gluten allergy” and say that you don’t want any bread and please change gloves.

Pretty good, especially if you are eating with people who are not GF. All sauces are GF and all meats. They do not have GF buns. But fry’s and potato salad are GF.

This is a chicken and rib place. If you look up their menu they have tons of gluten-free options. All their sauces except for one or gluten-free.

A large portion of the menu is GF. They have an allergen menu if you ask. No dedicated fryer but we felt very safe eating here and had no reactions.
