Brisket was great. Staff was very aware and asked on the phone if we were gluten free. They were testing out new items and gave us gluten free chicken tenders for free. Whole family enjoyed.

Most of the menu is gluten free, except for the sandwiches. They have a clear knowledge of cross contact and have almost an entirely gluten free menu.

The smoked chicken is the best I’ve ever had, by far. The pulled pork and ribs are excellent. Fries are delicious and it’s a dedicated fryer. Their sauces are delicious - especially like the smoky.

Moist, juicy ribs, fork tender brisket and smokey chicken. AMAZING food. Safe for Celiacs and CC sensitive people. Everything on the menu and all sauces are GF. Only gluten in the place is buns which only touch a penne press. Frier and grill top are dedicated GF!! Spoke to owner, was very friendly and understanding of GF needs. Ate here with NO problems. Thank you thank you ZZQ for being in existence!

I can't say enough good things about this place! Being recently diagnosed with celiac disease, eating out is a terrifying experience but not at ZZQ! They have gluten free buns AND a dedicated frier for the fries - no chance of cross contamination anywhere. The owner was so kind, explaining how the kitchen works and even going out of his way to recommend other celiac-friendly restaurants! So not only is the entire menu celiac friendly, it's DELICIOUS to boot! Thank you to everyone at ZZQ - this gal has a new favorite restaurant!

Food is awesome! Great meats, sides, sauces, and the best buns! They get buns from Rich’s according to the owner. A Google search tells me that Rich’s makes the buns at a dedicated facility in Eagan. Check back for their Tuesday special... if you see the smoked chicken sandwich... RUN!!! It is amazing! Great food and always tests safe with the Nima sensor.

The owner has celiacs in his family and is very knowledgeable. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable as well. Everything is gluten free but a bun they serve but you cam substitute it for a packaged gluten free bun. We tried three different types of meat and many sauces. Everything was very good. We will definitely go again when we travel up that way.

Don't sleep on this bbq. A treat for my fellow celiac and non celiac, alike. Dedicated fryers for items such as wings and fries. I study Dietetics and after talking to the owner, Zach, I am confident he cares and is knowledgeable about his customers and their allergies. Just be sure to notify him or his staff and you'll be in good hands! Service is quality, couldn't have felt more welcomed. Try it ASAP!

What a great experience! Upon hearing that I had Celiac disease, the owner himself assisted with my order. He explained that the meats and sauces as well as sides were gluten free. He also stated they had a dedicated deep fryer. I had the pulled pork with potato salad and French fries. It was amazing!!!!!! The food was delicious and I felt fantastic after eating it. Would absolutely recommend and look forward to going again.

ELiTE - Smokey Meaty Goodness (oh yah and it’s gluten free!!!) ZZQ is by far and wide, one of the most knowledge and attentive barbecue joints in the twin cities. Dedicated Fryer, GF Sauces, GF meats- errrythang except for the beer is GF. Meats, sauce and rubs are intentionally, carefully crafted to avoid gluten at all costs. This place is great! There is NO doubt this place is safe for celiac.

Owner came to take our order and was very knowledgeable about Celiac. All meats, sauces, sides, and fries are gluten free. The coleslaw has some kind of distilled vinegar though. They cleaned the grill and utensils after the last food was cooked. Definitely the best BBQ I have had in Minnesota. The meat was smoky and flavorful. I liked the food with just a little sauce as the meat was fantastic on its own. Great food and great service. We will be back often!

Had the brisket and pulled pork with fries and coleslaw. Owner informed me that it had vinegar in it. He is very very knowledgeable when it comes to gluten with 2 people on his wife's side that have it. They are in the process of getting all separate and new utensils. He is getting tongs with purple handles since purple represents allergies. He even told me to be safe and use a napkin to push down on the sauce pumps. I went right at 11 and as soon as I sat down it got busy. He should definitely open a second place south of the cities and have a food truck downtown Minneapolis. Now as far as the food goes... it looks really good and man the taste is just great!

Food very one dimensional. Relies heavily on dry rub. Barbecue sauces were watery with a strong vinegar taste. Fries are gluten free. Food is gluten free, but I prefer more flavor in my food. Order at counter food delivered to table. You will leave smelling like you've been at a smokehouse.

This is a great place! I'm very selective about where I eat due to my gluten issues. Met the owner, Zach on my first visit. He is very celiac conscious and makes you feel right at home. I can eat almost everything on the menu except for the buns. But at this place, you sure don't need a bun. Delicious!!

I am torn. This restaurant is very gluten free friendly, but the food was atrocious! We went on a Saturday night with our children, when we pulled up we were shocked to see that it wasn't busy, we had been worried, considering the timing. I know understand why. It was not edible. The meat was disgusting in both taste and texture, the fry seasoning was overpowering and off putting. I was so excited to try this place, but alas I am disappointed. Skip this place.
