So good at gf … have been getting the BBQ meats and delicious seasoned fries for years but this past time I went I was delighted to find out the fried chicken is GF if you request! (Dedicated fryer). And it was SO GOOD! Also… pro tip, best ranch around. There is also a 7 layer bar gf dessert that I haven’t tried yet.

Not everything is GF but all of the meats are or can be. They have a dedicated GF fryer. Does have Glutenberg in cans and a truly insane bourbon menu. Food is usually really fast. Just ask for the allergen menu.

Great bbq and drinks! I had the brisket, fries, and house wings. I confirmed everything was gluten free or asked it to be made in the dedicated fryer and they confirmed when they brought it out. No reaction, I’d eat here again!

I came here for lunch with a coworker. I spoke to the wait staff and received an allergen menu. Though I wouldn't say there are a ton of GF options, the bowls are GF and I went with that. The portion was large and pretty tasty.

Visiting from out of town and didn’t have a chance to research this place but it was great. When I told them I had celiac they gave me a totally separate allergy menu which made it so much easier. I had a ton of choices and they had a separate fryer. and everything was very yummy!!! I’m not from Boston but if I was I would go back!!!

This place was great! Went here for dinner tonight they have a dedicated fryer and an allergen menu. I had the BBQ Fries with pulled pork and BBQ bowl with pulled chicken. The allergen menu is exhaustive and lists the allergens in all items including onion allergies! Did not get sick and would highly recommend.

The staff was knowledgable about gluten free protocols, and the dedicated fryer was listed on the menu. The gluten free items on the allergen menu were clearly marked, and all the bbq sauces were gluten free. The manager delivered my meal by itself to avoid contact with any gluten orders from the rest of my party. The food was wonderful! I had the smoked turkey, beans, and crinkle fries. I will definitely be going back!

Incredible food! Ask for an allergy menu - each item is labelled with which allergens it contains. Our waitress was so helpful - she confirmed the fryer is dedicated and so the fries are safe for celiacs. The pulled chicken was absolutely incredible, and I also had the ribs - the flavor of both was outstanding! There are so many options that are safe and the kitchen is very careful with cc, the kitchen brought my meal out separately. You can definitely enjoy a safe (and amazing) meal here!!!

Fantastic, tons of options, they have an extensive allergy guide and the food is delicious, their fryer is specifically for veggies only so you’re good to go with all the fried things as well!

AMAZING. Food was drop notch, they have a special allergen menu, lots of options, a dedicated fryer and the chef came out after I ordered to discuss and confirm my choices. My fellow guests, who can eat gluten, loved the food too so I’m not grading on a curve here. Will endeavor to return every time I’m in Boston.

I was delighted to receive an allergen menu with indications of what could be made gluten free (among other allergens). My food was brought out separately and I enjoyed pulled pork, zucchini salad, and fries from a dedicated gluten free frier. Staff were super friendly!

This is some seriously good bbq. I agree with the other comment that the brisket is fantastic. I also tried the ribs and pulled pork which were both pretty good. All the meats are gluten free. All the sauces are gluten free. The French fries are fried in a dedicated fryer. I am very sensitive to cross contamination but did not have any issues.

Love finding a good BBQ place in the northeast. I had the brisket, mashed sweet, and greens with bacon. The brisket was great but the sweet bbq sauce was really watery. The mashed was the bomb but I would pass on the greens with bacon. Peach sweet tea was yummy.
