The server was very knowledgeable about my restrictions. I have eaten here multiple multiple times and never had an exposure. It’s for sure my go to for a quick meal. The salad bar is yummy, gluten containing items are on the opposite side of the bar. I have never had a problem with the ranch dressing and the sweet BBQ sauce is safe for me too! I’ve had both the pulled pork and the chicken without issue.

They have a menu that specifies the items that have gluten in them. I spoke with the waitress and she helped me find some delicious options. There are tons of items to get here that don't contain gluten. Meats/entrees, sides, big dinner salads, etc. Also, she marked it on the ticket that I was GF without me even asking and she even mentioned that she would have staff change gloves and she would personally check on my food to make sure it was safe. I was very impressed with her level of concern even though I didn't make a big deal of it at the table.

Note: double check the gluten items, because even their green beans say they contain gluten. I wouldn't have thought that, so I was glad I checked. I ordered pulled pork bbq, baked sweet potato, broccoli, and coleslaw.

I ask for gluten free menu. They said my meal come with bread. I ask to put it in side so my husband could have it. They brought it with it on top of my gluten free meal. 🤦🏻‍♀

Manager made sure to take my order personally. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. I don’t need gloves changed or anything so I don’t know that process but it sounded like he would have required it if I had asked.Gf menu is part of the allergy menu that lists what you can’t have. Only issue I saw with the menu was that french fries weren’t listed but are cooked in a shared fryer. Everyone was really nice and understanding. Love the remodel too :p

I eat here often and most of the time without issues. They love to put bread on you plate though. Instead of ordering the meals I choose to order meat by the 1/2 pound and gluten free sides by their self. It seems to help.
