While there may not be a ton of options, I had a very satisfying dinner and have not had any symptoms! I chose to eat a burger with the gf bun and a side salad. It was delicious and I will go back again!

The server went back to confirm that the gf pasta is cooked in the same water as the rest, then the manager said it wasn't. Sorry, I actually trust the person in the kitchen and since I have celiac and metaplasia casued by accidental gluten exposure over the years, I didn't appreciate the managers indifference and unprofessional behavior.

The lack of pasta made the gf menu options very small, none of the included sides for sandwiches are safe, to get a salad you have to pay more.

Good gluten free buns, but no dedicated fryer so I had a salad with my Bahn Mi sandwich. They don’t have a lot of gf options but the server was very nice to go back and ask the kitchen staff if she wasn’t sure about a menu item. I didn’t get sick so out of this experience alone I would say they are celiac friendly.

They do not have a gluten free menu, but server knew about options available. They can serve sandwiches and burgers on a gluten free bun (it seemed like an Udi's bun), so there is quite a selection. Of course fried items are out because of the shared fryer so I had a salad. Good meal!

Very friendly staff and have good knowledge of options for gluten free. Burgers are safe if you swap the gluten free bun. Chips and forest share a fryer with items that are breaded so not safe,but can sub a salad without croutons (for a small addition) they do not premix the salad so there is no concern with them picking croutons out. Biggest down side is that there are no gluten free beers so stuck with liquors or ciders.

Gluten free pasta and buns are available. Brisket and BBQ sauce are fine, as are the burgers. Brisket mac & cheese was great and also the brisket sandwich! Not really any sides...my one complaint. Fries and chips are in a shared fryer but they charged me $1.99 to sub a side salad (really?). A couple of misses with service as well...asked for no onions, got onions. Asked for a cocktail and they forgot. Brought regular bread with my son's gf mac and cheese. In the end great food but so-so service and lack of sides. Three of us celiacs DID NOT get sick so we were happy.

Gluten free hamburger buns and BBQ sauce. Also pasta. I had a BBQ brisket hamburger which was fantastic. Our server's daughter has celiac, so he was very helpful.

The menu does not identify which items are GF, but my server was very knowledgeable and the kitchen staff went to great lengths to ensure my order was GF. They offer a GF bun that can be provided with their burgers or sandwiches, and also offer GF pasta for their famous Mac & Cheese options. I had the Jameson BBQ Brisket Sandwich with a side salad - it was sooo good! Just make sure to quiz your server - chips are deep fried with gluten items and the meatloaf has bread in it, so steer clear!
