Good experience!

GF items marked clearly on menu. Also online.

LOTS of options!

The server was very very careful. Example: I am Celiac. I told him I have a severe gluten allergy. I confirmed I was ordering all GF food. I confirmed the fries (labeled GF) were in a separate fryer. My husband placed his ordered and confirmed his wings were GF so that I could try them. The server then said there would be garlic bread on his plate if I was concerned about CC. I am! That was great to know! Later, the server came back over to tell me that the fries are cooked with the kids breaded Nuggets. Even though they are marked GF. Very glad he came back to tell me.

Waitress didn't know anything about gf offerings, I found markings on the menu. Said she was new. Brought me wings with sauce (I ordered gf dry). She wasn't sure what I was given. Told me the entire cook staff was new too. I don't get glutened sick very often but I was a an absolute wreck within 30 minutes of leaving, lasting 24 hrs. NOT a safe place at all, nor knowledgeable.

We ordered take out. There was bread put into my meal. My husband ordered corn and cornbread. We got neither in our bag. I had the brisket and potato. My brisket was two small slabs . One had fat all through it. The other was pure fat with no meat. What I did eat tasted good.

Excellent BBQ ribs and sauces. The seating is fun and the owners are both knowledgeable about allergies and very kind. When I thanked them for the meal they offered to take requests, with a few days notice.

I ordered bbq chicken and pulled pork from the gluten sensitive menu, when the waitress brought it out it came between two pieces of Texas toast. Once we asked her to take it back and remake it she came back quickly with the same food just without the bread on it.

The first time I went, they told me they had a gf dedicated fryer for the fries. At that time, there was a gluten free menu, but it was outdated and they didnt have everything anymore. The second time I went, the burger was different, and I got sick within 10 minutes of leaving. Thought it was a fluke and tried again... the burger again was different because they said that it wasnt available anymore. I went one more time and they told me that there aas no gf menu and the burger was different once again. I found out at that, there is no dedicated fryer.

Make sure to ask for no garlic bread and that it's a gluten allergy. No dedicated fryer, so anything on the "gluten sensitive" menu with an asterisk is cross contaminated (fries, chips, wings). Menu is available on website. Had the pulled pork, brisket, baked potato and broccoli. Great portion for price but bbq was generic but good

We have only ever ordered take out from this restaurant. They do have a very detailed allergen list on their website. I always leave notes when ordering of my allergies. One time my food arrived with bread when requested not to be which is the reason for 4 stars. My husband enjoyed that main dish and I stuck with just the sides. All other (several) times, food has been delicious and never gotten sick.

Separate GF menu. Items that may be subject to cross contamination are clearly indicated on the menu. Would recommend.

Update: they now have gluten sensitive menus that clearly state what is safe and what could be cross contaminated. Food came out perfect!!

Past review: So I dropped a star because they brought my food with bread on it. However, the manager came to speak to us and they remade my food completely. Very nice about it and quick to fix their mistake. Did not get sick and would come back.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, I’ve had to stop eating here. They used to be really good and safe, but the last several times I had eaten here I have gotten sick. I think they have major problems with cross contamination. So no more. It’s a shame too because it was really tasty. ☹

Very good BBQ and has separate menu! I am celiac and have eaten here a handful of times with no problem! They are friendly and accommodating - try the RIBS! Yum!

Please note the fries are in a shared frier with breaded onion rings. Waiting for the rest of my meal to decide on full rating.

****"update ***" The server did his best . Half chicken, jacket potato and cold slaw. Needed the toilet about 30 mins after finishing food so I would say find somewhere else to eat.

Went to the restaurant after a 12 hour workday to order takeout to bring back to the hotel. Ordered from the gluten free menu, told them it was a wheat allergy. Found a piece of garlic bread hidden UNDER my pulled pork, after I had already eaten half of it. Called them back, all I got was a verbal apology.

Visited here twice during holiday. After first visit was going to give 5 stars. It was lovely then waiter was knowledgeable and no issues. However the 2nd visit was terrible. Had to send dinner back twice we order two gf babyback ribs just like last time. They firstly came with garlic bread on them. Second time the mash came with gravy that states on menu that we cannot have gravy. Guess all the staff are not up to date on allergy awareness.

We were a table of 25, the waitress tried her hardest...but they put the garlic bread on my plate anyway. She took it back and assured me that all new items were chosen, but I still got very sick tonight. 😔

They have a gluten free menu with decent understanding and pleasant servers. A few of their GF items are also dairy free. Check online for their full allergen listing. It was our only option in the area since the others were closed. Glad they were there for our travels.

I informed the staff I was gluten free prior to ordering. I got pulled pork with potatoes. Within thirty minutes I started to feel sick, the waiter informed me that they accidentally put garlic bread on my pork at first but then removed it! Not safe at all. I notified the manager and he was very apologetic but I just can’t trust them again..

So far they have taken care of me. My go to meals are pulled pork or ribs with a baked potato. I always advice that I have a gluten allergy and to ask the chef to take extra care to change his gloves while preparing my food and so far I’ve eaten here probably 5+ times without an issue. Your mileage may vary at other locations. I have celiac disease and have been okay so far.
