    We went there today and the waitress was great. They have a gf menu. Not a lot of choices for my son but he was thrilled he could have and enjoyed the ribs mashed potatoes and collard greens. Well not sure he enjoyed the greens but hey it's worth s shot! We told the waitress we had tix to a 2:00 pm show and she did great getting our food quickly!

    One star only because I couldn't give it zero. Went based on this apps recommendation. Menu states and wait staff all clearly say that the kitchen is NOT allergy friendly.

    Skip it. The staff is not terribly knowledgable, there aren't a lot of options on the GF menu and the barbecue sauce isn't celiac friendly either. I ended up with a chicken salad and the chicken was dry. The other non-GF diners in our party were also not impressed with their meals. There are definitely better options in the area.

    Food really good. Some concerns about the knowledge of waitstaff. Waiter clearly didn't understand GF menu. Manager however helped out. They being said, GF plate arrived with cornbread on it needed to be sent back. Needs more GF educations.

    Do NOT eat here unless you want to Have BBQ with the BBQ sauce!!!! That sucks! Their sauce is not GF! We got up and walked out! On a positive note, the waiter seemed very knowledgable about what I could eat just nothing with BBQ sauce which was very disappointing to say the least!

    This place knows a lot about GF, and have a social GF menu, We shared a Smoked Prime Rib, it was tender and very tasty, No doubt will return.
