Super tasty barbecue chicken and various sides at a good price...what could be better than that?! Much menu is available gluten free (including desserts)and the online order system makes ordering.GF for takeout a breeze. When we arrived to pick up the order, the staff confirmed that everything that we had ordered was GF and confirmed it again when the food was ready ( we arrived a few minutes early). Chicken was great and the GF cheesecake was superb.Staff are very friendly.

Saved the place in my favorites. A must go for GF chicken, ribs, fries, salads and more. Celiac safe.

Chicken was a little dry, so was the waitress, but overall a good spot for a quick lunch. Fries are crispy and delicious - dedicated fryer. Lots of GF options.

My husband and I have eaten here twice now and enjoyed our food. I didn’t get sick either time. They are very accommodating and understand the importance of avoiding cross contamination.

Five stars for having a large Celiac-safe GF menu and dedicated fryer but tbh it’s not outstanding food or anything. An ok stop for a quick bite.

My go-to place for poutine! Almost everything on the menu is available GF with a dedicated GF fryer. They even changed their corn bread recipe to make it GF and it is delicious! The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable about Celiac.

It gets busy here during peak times and on GCTC show nights so if that bothers you go early. This is a family owned business and the staff is warm and the food is delicious. Try the cheesecake!

Exceptional service! My waiter, who I think was the manger, was super knowledgable. Lots of items, got the ribs, which were amazing! Also splurged and got the cheesecake which was out of this world. Crust was made with nuts so was 100% GF. Would most definitely return!

Disappointed. We drove out specifically because this is one one of the few places to supposedly offer GF poutine. However, when we got there, they couldn't guarantee that the fryer hadn't been used with non-GF ingredients. Quite a few options if you are gluten sensitive, but not celiac.

Food was very good and staff seemed knowledgeable about gf food and cross contamination. Service was quick considering all the families with young children in there. Atmosphere was good but quite noisy due to kids which is not their fault. I would definitely go again.
