Staff are friendly and respectful of gluten allergy requests. Make sure to mention gluten allergy early on to avoid bread being brought to your table. While there is not a dedicated kitchen, most meat options are gf and several other items offer gf alternatives. We have tried the chips, guacamole and salsa despite a risk of cross contamination and have not had an issue with them. Gluten free chocolate cake dessert is lovely. (Family orders gf: chips with guacamole and salsa * cross contamination risk chips, steak, loaded baked potato, baby back ribs, grilled asparagus, steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes, Natalie salad)

Overall great experience. Recommend reservations, since this place is popular. We sat outside which was nice because it's pretty boisterous inside. Server was so enthusiastic and attentive, and while he got thrown off a little bit when I asked about gluten-free options (and said I had a wheat allergy) I think it's because like many places they can't guarantee no cross-contamination so their menu is listed" gluten friendly". I ended up getting the pulled pork, smashed sweet potatoes, and baked beans, A. Mojito, also tried some of my family's tri-tip and brisket. Everything was extremely tasty, some of the best barbecue I've had in a long time. Wish they had some more vegetable sides like collard greens, but I guess we're in the west now so what can I say?
