I'm new to GF eating (NCGS), and eating out is a stressful situation for me at the moment. The staff at Sugarfire were fantastic. I inquired about gluten free options on the sides and the workers knew in a second what had gluten in it and what didn't. I don't know for certain of the fryers are dedicated or not, but I didn't have any problems with my French fries (they also serve hush puppies). You get a TON of food there and it's all excellent.

As long as you don’t get a sandwich, there are a lot of menu options, all of the meats and sauces were said to be gluten free. They have daily side dishes not listed on the menu and they were labeled which were GF. I chose the cole slaw and au gratin potatoes and also had the brisket and pulled pork. The brisket was dry, but otherwise everything tasted great and had good sized portions (although a little pricey).

The staff didn’t seem to know what was gluten free and what wasn’t. Three different staff said three different things about the sauces. I had the turkey without sauce and coleslaw, which were both good and so far haven’t gotten sick.

Ate there 2/1/19. Food was tasty but I thought expensive for the amount that you receive. Ordered the turkey, baked beans and cole slaw. my daughter had pulled pork, hash brown casserole and baked beans. We both were sick so either the beans had something with gluten in them or were not good. Did not change their gloves when handling our meat. No one else that ate with us became sick but they are not gluten free either.

Excellent food! Staff was knowledgeable on gluten free. Meat was all gluten free, fries were in a shared fryer so they were no GF. They did not have GF buns but the meat was great plain with their bbq sauces.

All meats gluten free and the staff is knowledgeable. Just be careful of cross contamination!

Cross contamination like non-other. They will tell you it’s gluten free but then you watch the employee place the buns in the toaster and turn around lift the lid and grab the meat with his hands. All the meat is cross contaminated now. Not Celiac friendly at all...sat with my family and watched them eat. Celiac sucks!

The staff was very knowledgeable and when they weren’t sure about an ingredient they looked it up. All the meats and most sauces are GF. The meat server changed his gloves and opened new packages of meats for me because he felt it was safer. Many sides are also GF. I had a 2 meat combo with turkey, ribs, coleslaw and baked beans. The food was delicious. The ribs were outstanding. Sauces were good but mostly sweet.

Great food, a ton of sauce options, and the staff knows exactly what to do. The only non-gluten free sauces were the Carolina mustard sauce and the Alabama white sauce, everything else was safe (and again, SO many options!). I had the ribs, coleslaw, and potato salad.

If the right staff is working, this place is super helpful! (Some didn’t know what was gf but one guy was extremely knowledgeable and helpful) was able to eat most sides and most of the bbq sauces. Food was spectacular.

I was a bit timid going here due to the lack of a gluten free menu. However when I got to the counter, I told them I couldn’t eat gluten, and asked if they could change their gloves before serving the food. The staff responded immediately with clarifying the severity of my allergy (gluten sensitivity or celiac disease?). I was low key thrilled that they knew of celiac disease and were able to serve me accordingly. The meat is separate from the sauce, and all the sauce is gluten free except the white/cream sauce I believe (always ask them for clarification as they may rotate sauces). I highly recommend the pulled pork with the coffee bbq sauce! Also, there are some gf sides that they were able to provide, which is always incredible when it’s not a side sale or fruit like I’m used to (hehe!). Again, ask for clarification on which sides are gf as they may rotate. Celiac safe!!

SOOOOOOOO delicious. There's no other way to describe the food AND sauce. I went up to the counter, asked about GF and the workers immediately changed gloves without me asking. That says everything. Oh man, it was good.

Awesome and you CAN try so many sauces! AVOID the Carolina and white sauces, they contain gluten. The chef came out and went through every item I could eat.

All of the meat, dark sauces, and sides are GF! It was soooooo tasty! Its cafeteria style so you go up with a tray, get your food, pay, and sit wherever. We found seats quickly on a Friday evening with a large party on a Friday night. Lots of different sauces and really cool atmosphere! If you're staying downtown it's easy to walk there so we loved it!

Great experience! Their menu wasn’t marked online so I called and they were knowledgeable about their GF options. All of their meats are GF and most of their sides were too. I tried the pulled pork, smoke turkey, and ribs with Cole slaw, potato salad, green beans, and hash brown casserole. They have several GF alcoholic drink options too. The service was also great.

Gluten free buns are available and I have ordered online and as a drive through. It is always delicious and the sides of slaw and baked beans and homemade sodas are delicious.
