The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options, and the cook took extra precaution to safeguard against contamination. There is only one bbq sauce that is not gluten free, and the staff made sure I knew which one it was. They do not have a dedicated fryer, but their mashed potatoes made up for me not being able to get fries.
— Separate gluten-free menu
The food was absolutely delicious. The staff didn’t feel that they had a lot of gluten free options, but I feel they have a great selection.
Spoke to manager on the phone before I came. We discussed menu options and they were able to assure me of a safe meal. When I got there, the manager personally made my dinner so there was no miscommunication between server and chef. It was delicious! Love them for lunch. Will go back!! Had salad and loaded potato. *Note: have to avoid the corn muffins. They contain wheat.
They have some printed copies of their allergen info. And, their website has allergen information. Unfortunately, the two lists are inconsistent: some wheat-free items on one list are not on the other, and vice versa. I eventually ordered something that was wheat-free on both lists, but the server brought it out touching a corn muffin, despite our lengthy conversation regarding gluten issues. Eat here at your own risk.
GF menu available online. Be sure to notify your server of your allergy and request gluten containing items be left off your plate. Not many GF sauces, but there are a few meat options to pick from and most sides are GF (although fryer is shared, so skip the fried sides.) I ordered the smoked turkey and chicken with steamed broccoli and didn’t get sick!
Ribs were absolutely delicious and gluten free of course. They have 2 barbeque sauces that were gluten free. I forget to tell the waitress not to add cornbread to my order. Thank goodness it was sitting at the edge of my plate when my food came out. I just had my daughter remove the cornbread off my plate and I used a fork to remove the rib and fries from my plate that was sitting next to the cornbread. Thank goodness the rest of my food didn’t get contaminated and I didn’t get sick. I would definitely eat at this restaurant again next time I’m craving ribs.
I asked our waitress what was gluten free and she had the manager come out and go through the gluten free options. He was pretty knowledgeable about cross contamination and even said he would prepare the food himself to make sure it was ok. I had the roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and apples. I didn’t try any of the bbq sauce because I didn’t want to risk it.
The country roasted chicken is my go-to here and they're good about making their salads without croutons if you ask. I've eaten at this location about 10 times and have yet to be glutened. There's a gluten free menu online (I've never asked for a physical one but they might have it). The waitress I had knew right away that the chips weren't gluten free when I asked which was nice that she didn't guess or anything. Just remember to tell them not to give you the cornbread muffin with your meal and you should be set.
AVOID AVOID AVOID. The menu is a joke, they only have a very few things on their menu. And then when you order they are out of it. The waitress was completely incompetent. If I could give them a zero I would.
We did a take out order. Excellent food. I had the salmon with garlic mashed and grilled pineapple. Delish! No problems with the food but the person who took our phone order probably should have been given another task.
Waiter Scott and Manager Veronica took exceptional care of our celiac needs. Veronica was knowledgeable in cross contamination and was excited and eager to help us. The roast chicken is the safest meal for a celiac and it was delicious. The Brussels sprouts with pecans was out of this world. Highly recommended for anyone with a laundry list of foods you can’t eat. Thank you
Previous review indicated all sauces except 1 were GF. Turns out only 2 are GF. Waiter was possibly worst we have encountered. Had no idea about GF. Tried to serve my Celiac wife a beer instead of Crispin Cider, served her ribs with cornbread touching it after all our requests about allergy concerns. Incredibly slow service.
Don't do it.. it's basically a wheat-a-palooza. Nothing on their menu is truly GF as there is basically a guarantee of cross contamination. Also, the staff have no idea what being celiacs means. Left right away.
My girlfriend is celiac. We've eaten BBQ here on several occasions and she has never had any problems whatsoever. They have a good selection of entrees and all but one of their sauces (there are several at your table) is GF.
We should have left when we sat down to the table and it was full of crumbs and had to ask them to clean it off. Then I thought I would be safe with the sassy salad. Which was brought out with the cornbread muffin and corn chips on top. Basically bagged lettuce,cabbage,carrots with some brisket on top. No dressing! Won't be coming back!
I would give this 0 stars if I could. They have a very complicated allergen list that I ordered from... Only to have the manager come and tell me what I ordered WASNT gluten free. The allergen list they have is WAY outdated apparently. I asked them several times to not give this menu to future diners.
I spoke with Jay (the manager) and he was very nice. The items that are GF are: BBQ or Roasted Chicken, the Rich and Sassy sauce, coleslaw, broccoli, mashed potatoes, and potato salad.
Great chicken breast with choice of 4 gf BBQ sauces. Limited gf menu but a few things I really like such as a plain huge baked potato with butter - they have additional gf toppings too.
There are limited gf safe options but the roasted chicken, broccoli, grilled pineapple and mashed potatoes are all delicious. They are very allergy aware and careful. My daughter with tn and fish allergies eats there safely too. The company lists ALL ingredients online.
Had a great experience at Famous Dave's in Wisconsin Dells! We had the BBQ Chicken with the garlic mashes potatoes, broccoli, and corn on the cob, and there were no leftovers!It would be great if their beans were GF, but we found enough to make a delicious meal and even the kids were happy :)
When I called they said there's no completely gluten free food that isn't crossed with wheat/gluten. So if you have celiac disease or a high intolerance don't bother. Very disappointed.
There's not much on their menu that is GF, but I had an excellent wait staff that really took the time to help me. He let me know I had two options for a meat (roasted chicken and mild sauce wings). The wings were great paired with fries and garden/side salad minus the croutons. Ranch or blue cheese is the only dressing options, but both go great with wings. I've gotten sick at other restaurants that have GF menus and was a bit unsure. It's been 4 hours since my meal and no ill effects (and my reaction is quite bad and usually happens in the first 30 minutes of eating). So, if you like tender flavorful wings I highly recommend this option. Even thou I was limited it was so uplifting to have someone take the time to care about another's dining experience 😃
Dismal GF menu--in fact, what they refer to as a GF menu is only a wheat-free menu. And wheat is in just about everything there. The fact that they don't know the difference between wheat & gluten is sort of terrifying, and renders it not an option for celiacs at all.
Famous Dave's has a GF menu listed below but also states they can not completely prevent cross contamination.
