Amazing BBQ!! The items are marked GF on the menu and the staff is knowledgable, however it is kind of a cafeteria style line to get sides and all GF and gluten sides are served in the same spot. I would say it’s a bit of a risk, but I am pretty sensitive and I was completely safe eating here. The meats (almost all) and sauces are GF. The sides that are GF are marked. The place was packed when I was there so there wasn’t a whole lot of time for questions, but I requested the GF sides on a separate tray than gluten sides and indicated I have an “allergy” (I know celiac is not but sometimes saying allergy is the only way people understand). The barbecue was some of the best I’ve ever had and I had 0 reaction. I loved this place a lot and cannot wait to return

After reading the reviews I was very cautious but the staff were very helpful and were able to confirm that their meats and sauces are all 100% gluten free. There were posts about the Worcestershire sauce, but they were able to confirm it is a gf Worcestershire. The cafeteria serving style for the sides made me a little nervous about cross contamination, but so far no reaction! Long wait during the lunch rush but well worth it!

Just went here last night 10/26/19

This place is beyond amazing! After reading some reviews here I made sure to ask about the sausage. They changed their recipe so the sausage no longer contains gluten. All their meets are gluten free and their sauces as well! I think the only things that weren’t gluten free, were the Mac and cheese and the corn bread. Other than that, everything I ate was safe and I had no adverse reactions! I have celiac disease so I have to ask the grilling questions and they were more than accommodating and happy to answer them for me. Their brisket is hands down the best thing I have ever had - my boyfriend agrees! And their coleslaw... omg! Amazing! We also got the shredded beef and that was so amazingly good as well! I’m tempted to go back for more today before we leave back to Seattle tonight 😆

The food is delcious and it is great that they say what sides are gluten free and what isn’t. But this place shouldn’t be trusted. A lot of people think that the W sauce they spray on the meat is the problem, and it might be. But the way they serve the meat is ripe for cross contamination. Common cutting board, common cutting knife. It’s hard to tell what the issue is honestly, but do not go here if you have are a sensitive celiac like myself. I’m currently dealing with all sorts of issues right now after eating here. All I had was the beef ribs and rice to keep it simple - but I got glutened bad. The counter clerk told me all the meat was GF which I know wasn’t true since their sausage isn’t GF. Figured I’d be safe with my choice based on reviews and general intuition but I was wrong. Proceed with caution at this place.

I hate to be one of the dissenting voices in saying this place is not celiac friendly, but I'm quite sure that I got glutened here. When I got up to the counter and asked to confirm that the meats were free (as they are all listed as being gluten-free on the menu), the server told me that most of them were sprayed with Worcestershire sauce which contains gluten. I wound up getting the pork ribs and turkey which she said were the only ones that were not. Even then I still wound up feeling sick after ( so that maybe because I made the stupid choice to try a bite of the other meat that my friend got, in the hopes that the person at the counter was misinformed and they were gluten-free as stated on the menu). Really tasty but I don't feel safe returning.

most sides are gf and all the meat except sausage. I told them about cross contamination and they brought out a new brisket, a new knife and a new cutting board to avoid cross contamination with the sausage. They were so accommodating and understanding. The creamed corn was incredible! I will be back next time I’m in Austin for work! The most important thing is that I didn’t sick!

Tried the pork ribs and brisket. Tender and very tasty. Peppery rub is awesome. Green beans were great, pinto beans okay. The sauce lists distilled vinegar, which I usually avoid because no way to know if wheat or corn, but I tried it and had no reaction. The Original and sweet tangy were both addictive.

Love a place where they don't even have to think about what's gf when asked! Sides - green beans, beans, even creamed corn was safe. Meat was all safe with the exception of the sausage. Bbq sauces were for sale - I checked the ingredient list on the original and the tangy, both were safe. And EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS. Seriously best beans I might have ever had.

One of the owners was very kind to show me and discuss all ingredients for each dish. There were many gluten free options. Unfortunately I have allergies also to soy and cow's milk. The only side I could eat was brown beans, but that was fine because I was going to get to eat BBQ. The service is cafeteria-style and after getting my side + a bag of Ftritos I arrived at the cashier and meat order center only to find gross cross contamination. All meats are placed on a wooden chop block and the same knife and serving blade was used on all meats, even the ones which have gluten in them. I ate beans and Fritos and iced tea for lunch.
