I went here after hearing the good experiences. I ordered in person so I could look them in the eye when explaining my GF needs for my to go order which was 1 pound of pork- no sides. I ate a small portion on my own Schars ciabitta roll at home, and, you guessed it, am spending most of the next day of my vacay in the bathroom. I'm thinking it must be the meat. So disappointing.

Moe's is usually a safe place for our celiac daughter. The cashier was very nice, let us know the meats were safe and all the sides that day were safe. She just got wings, chips and Gatorade :) Good go to place when traveling, which we are.

Really good BBQ, most things are gluten free and they have a sheet that’ll tell you what you need to know. Most of the menu is gluten free and the staff was very knowledgeable. Had a great experience here!!

No designated areas for celiac, but staff is aware of sensitivities. They keep a binder near the checkout counter with ingredient lists for menu items and daily specials.

When asked to see the GF menu, cashier said ‘We have nothing GF.’ They DO have gluten free options….cashier was clueless. I have eaten here numerous times, and so far, have done ok with the pulled pork (no bun), side salad (no croutons and my own dressing), and the sweet potato casserole. Haven’t tried/trusted anything else.

Women taking the orders at the window was also gluten-free. Not sure about cross contamination, but they were helpful and pointing me in the direction for the sides that were gluten-free and other items on the menu that were gluten-free. I would definitely eat here again. I did not get sick

Moe's BBQ has the best service, the best bbq in Bangor and best of all, almost the entire menu is gluten free. They are super happy to make special orders and are careful with special requests...get the jambalaya with a side of the white bbq sauce, you will not be sorry!

Husband and I came in and had a delicious bbq meal. The young lady behind the counter was very helpful with the gf Selections.They also have a gf menu. I had the pulled pork platter with baked beans and potato salad. It was very good! Husband enjoyed a pork sandwich(bread not gf) with baked beans and slaw. He loved the slaw! It’s marinated, not soaked in mayonnaise. The meat was very tender! I highly recommend this place. We will be back.

Girl at registers boyfriend has Celiac so she walked me through the options. Most things come with non gf cornbread so make sure they leave it off. Had Turkey and pulled pork both were ok and potato salad also ok. BBQ sauce and beans were too spicy for my taste. Good sweet tea.

Most of the sides are gluten free, and I believe all of the meats are (definitely double check!), and we love their wings. Although we're not super confident in the staff's knowledge on gluten, we've never had a problem with cross-contamination. We ask them to change their gloves before handling our food, and it's been fine every time!

All of the meat is gluten free and I verified when I phone in our order. However, when I checked the to go boxes in the car, there was cornbread in each box. 🤦🏽‍♀ I walked back inside and explained we couldn’t eat any of the meat because the bread was in the same container and the hostess was completely irritated. I made the assumption that they would only give me gluten free food but I suppose I should’ve been even more specific. The food was tasty, not the best bbq I’ve had but I’m from Texas and have high bbq standards! The coleslaw was not my favorite.

At first I was impressed to hear they had a gluten free menu but then I saw it and I was no longer thrilled. The list basically said that all the meats were safe and listed a handful of sides that were safe. It was a little frustrating because you had to us the regular menu to navigate the gluten free menu. Out of curiosity I asked about their fried fish and chicken, (keep in mind the gf menu said all meats are safe) and when the waitress came back she said it was not safe. So I placed my order and everything was going okay when my plate came back with gluten free food with CORN BREAD ON TOP! I’m new to my allergy so I just handed my corn bread to my boyfriend and ate like nothing happened. It turns out that for me even the crumbs on my plate were enough to make me feel sick. I am very unimpressed with Moe’s barbecue for how they handled my allergy. The waitress and kitchen made no note of the allergy and contaminated my food. The lesson here for me would be that this is unacceptable, and I should have sent it back.

The food I was able to get was basically just meat and a side there were not gluten free buns or bread and they were not careful about my allergy.

Waitress and kitchen made no note of allergy and were not careful at all.

Went there for lunch today. I asked for the GF menu. I thought I saw corn bread on that menu. So I ordered the chicken wings, slaw, potato salad and the corn bread. Well... somehow I had a moment of insanity or wishful thinking not sure which was responsible but the corn bread is NOT gluten free. The lady that took my order, actually checked with the kitchen staff prior to serving my food. When she brought my food she let me know the corn bread was not GF at all. She said she did it because she didn't want me being sick. What a tremendous act of kindness to double check saving me from being ill. Btw, the chicken wings are some of the best I've ever had. My husband had the ribs and those were delicious too. All of the meats are GF. Not very fancy but a great place to eat.

The meat is all gluten free*, except fried shrimp and fried catfish. Slaw is gluten free (apple cider vinegar based). Knowledgeable staff that was willing to answer my questions, including obnoxious recipe specific questions. *looks like their spices are not certified gluten free and there is plenty of bread around for cross contamination

Well I wanted to believe, but as another rater said, even after a whole conversation and an order of gluten-free the ribs came w cornbread on top.

Good food and the majority of the menu was gluten free, however our platters came with large slices of cornbread on them (not GF) which was appropriate because we have some non-gluten free people in our group, but it made those of us with celiac nervous. I recommend specifically requesting no bread.

They always told me their meats were gluten free (i have the intolerance), until I told them my daughter (6) had Celiac. That’s when I learned learned the wings are supposed to be gf, but they cross-contaminate the fryer. It is inconsistent because it depends on who you talk to. That makes it unsafe for Celiac.
