Pretty fair amount of choices on gf menu. The meat is delicious (I had brisket), and I really liked the coleslaw. I substituted vegetables for beans & was disappointed to get a very small cup of warmed up but still totally raw broccoli and carrots from a bag. Overall pretty good for barbecue and I didn't get sick. Yay!
My husband and I stopped in for a weekday to-go lunch order. The guy at the counter was busy, and really needed more help between seating tables and a bunch of take out orders coming in all at once. They do have a separate GF menu. I was lax in my ordering/questioning, which is my fault. I ordered a loaded potato that comes with a side salad. My husband, not Celiac, ordered a sandwich. Once we arrived at our destination turns out my salad had croutons on it. I couldn't eat it, but in fairness I didn't double check how it was prepared. All the other food was really tasty. I'd go back, but would be more vigilant so make sure it was prepared correctly.
Separate gluten free menu. The stuffed potato skin appetizer with pulled pork was amazing! I had the lunch sampler with ribs, wings and pulled pork. The sampler was served with beans and cole slaw which were OK. All of there BBQ sauces on the table were all labeled GF.
First let me say I did not give this 5 stars because it is not exclusively GF. There is still a risk. That said...I called the other day to inquire about GF options. Freddy was very understanding and said ask for him when we came, he even told me his schedule. They brought my daughter's food out separate from ours, they gave us new unopened bottles of BBQ sauce to use because they refill the bottles kept on the table. The baked potato is on the GF menu but Freddy said he was concerned because they are prepared ahead of time. He caught our server as he brought the plate out. He took it back and brought her food out on a new plate and substituted apple slices from the kids menu. she ate a half rack of dry rub ribs, baked beans and the stuffed potatoes from the appetizer menu. The food was delicious! *I waited until the following day to post this watching for a reaction. She did NOT get glutened :)
We were reassured the wings would be made gluten free and hand prepared by the manger and my celiac fiancé got extremely sick afterwards. I called the restaurant and spoke the the manager who confirmed he grilled the wings in the same grill top they toast their rolls.
Menu labeled gf however they share a fryer. Their spices do not say gf on the bottle but that’s what they use. Baked beans are from Bush’s can and green beans are from a can too (per waitress). Talked with the manager and he was clueless. Very disappointed, but thankful I didn’t get sick.
Awesome BBQ. The smoked pulled chicken was amazing. Every sauce I checked was marked as GF, so lots of choices. Note - I was told that the gluten free menu has changed a little from the printed copy, but lots of choices still. They may not have the gf buns, the host told me they didn't have them anymore. But don't let that deter you, you can find something else great to eat on the menu.
Enjoyed having A chicken and rib combo with coleslaw and beans and a choice of GF sauces. Was offered a GF bottle of beer which made a change too. Meat fell clean off the rib bone. Was not glutened👍🏼 standard warning at Top of menu re cross contamination see photo.
Ate there twice on our 3 day stay in Charleston. Had the wings, ribs, smoked chicken and brisket. All sauces are gluten free. Cole slaw and beans are gluten free. So many options on their gluten free menu. Great staff that were so helpful and knowledgeable each time we were there. I’m extremely sensitive and ate there with complete confidence.
We went here many times during our stay in Charleston and I did not get sick one time! The servers were not surprised about celiac disease like they had never heard of it before, they did offer up different options and were helpful! I felt safe eating here and I could relax. I asked the kitchen staff to change gloves but they already knew about cross contamination! Awesome! The food is excellent!
While they have a separate menu, nothing is prepared apart from gluten items. One of our plates came out with toast on it despite being very clear with the server. The server was astonished that we would have an issue because “it came with it” and her tone of voice about having it “completely remade” and huff i was made me feel like they just sent the same plate back out. The portions were terribly small and the green beans were awful. Sauces were delicious and the beans were good. We had ribs, brisket and pulled pork.
Fantastic BBQ place in NMB! They were extremely accommodating and knowledgable from the second we walked in. They have a completely separate gluten free menu with plenty of salads entrees and sides. All of their 5 house BBQ sauces are certified gluten free and can be used on any pulled pork, chicken or rib dish.
One of the largest gluten free menus I have seen. All of the sauces on our table were gluten free. They offer a variety of barbecue plates (chicken, pork, beef, ribs). They also offer wings, potato skins and salads. Our server was knowledgeable. It was a very good experience.
Server very GF knowledgable. Unfortunately, my plate arrived via another server with a muffin on the plate. The original server was quick to bring a new platter. Food was very tasty. I would recommend this place.
I ordered pulled pork and a baked potato, they included a muffin of some sort along with my food which was a little off putting since I had no idea if it was actually gf or not. Ended up throwing that and the part of the potato it touched away. The mix up could have easily been because I was ordering take out? I didn't get sick though, so that's a plus.
Great food. Knowledgable wait staff. Wings are normally fried in shared fryer, but ask and they will bake them for you so they're glutenfree. Tons of options and lots of sauces!! Gluten free menu if you ask. Very clear and easy to read.
As noted by other reviewers, there is not a separate gf menu, but an allergen guide that can be cross-referenced with the regular menu. It's pretty easy to navigate though, and I ordered the half-rack of ribs and pulled pork, along with baked beans. It was hard to get a sense for how thoroughly they understood cross-contamination concerns, but the food was outstanding (especially the ribs), and I had no issues.
I had the pulled pork platter and baked beans. (I'm always scared to try cole slaw since mayo is used on bread so much and could get crumbs in it.) they just handed us an allergen guide, not a GF menu. The food was cheap, hot, and good. I was too full to finish mine. The place is not in historic Savannah and its family friendly and casual.
