The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten. Very friendly and showed me a list of items that I could safely eat. No problem at all with gluten here if you order from their gluten free menu 😊

Every time I come here, the staff is great. The chef will change his cutting boards and get a new knife. EI’ve used my Nima sensor on the smoked turkey on multiple occasions and gluten is never detected. Bbq sauce is also GF! We love this place !

UPDATE 2017 - It seems the management may have changed - the knowledge was no longer there and I felt unsafe. I dined there anyway (to appease my significant other - stupid me) and I got REALLY SICK. ******************************************************************* They don't have a separate menu but are familiar with people who must be GF and need to avoid cross contamination. I have eaten here MANY times - I've ordered salads and a few different entrees and no problem. My favorite is the applewood smoked chicken - I get it with string beans and cinnamon apples - delicious! If they're unsure of something they will come ask you - not guess. Love this place!

Awesome customer service. They changed out the cutting board, cutting utensils, and even the meat for a fresh piece to slice from. No issues whatsover for anyone in the family. and their menu is labeled really well online with all the main allergies. Very grateful

Most of the meats and sauces do not contain gluten! (The pulled pork does contains gluten, so steer clear of that one!) There are also a few sides to choose from that do not contain gluten such as some of the chips, potatoes, and beans. No gluten free bread, so you can’t have the sandwiches. They do have big potatoes you can top with the meat of your choice though! They don’t have a gluten free menu, this info is from the allergen list on their website.

Great BQ Brisket! I had no issues eating there, and the sauces are gluten free too.

Staff was knowledgeable about celiac needs. They cut my meat out of a fresh piece of meat on a separate surface with a clean knife. Sauces are marked on the bottle as gluten free.

I eat st Rudy’s often. I usually get the smoked potato with brisket and my son gets the moist brisket. We both have Celiac and have never had an issue.

Ordered turkey and individual order of potato salad to go. I have fairly new celiac diagnosis so asked them to clean knife before cutting turkey. They gladly took cutting board in back and cleaned it and knife and other utensils before carving mine. Turkey and rub is GF but I am being extra careful. I didn’t try Rudy’s sauce this time but will on later visit (they warn some are sensitive to vinegar in it). Thanks Rudy’s for offering GF items and your great staff training. Didn’t have any problems and added GF bread and Sweet Baby Rays GF honey BBQ sauce at home. Nice to have another safe option!

I think I got glutened here. I ate ribs and the sauce taking the lid off and pouring it to avoid cc- around 7, then I woke up at 1am puking. Not sure if the meat was undercooked or what, but my stomach definitely was queasy pretty bad the next morning.

The on-line gluten free menu is helpful. Although, like many places the rice crispy treats do claim to be gf, if they use Kellogg’s Rice Crispy cereal- they no longer make gf cereal as they use Barley Malt now.

I absolutely LOVE eating at every Rudy’s location we’ve been to. They know what is in their foods, understand allergen cross-contamination issues and just care in general. Ask to see their allergen listing & to use a clean prep/cutting board. They are always happy to be sure you are safe eating there.

Barbecue is pretty good. All the meats and sauces are gluten free. The only side I eat is potato salad and it is fairly tasty.

I have trouble with their nutritional info, several items say no to containing gluten but then say yes to containing wheat, which is counterintuitive so it makes me wary.

They have an allergen list online. All meats, except pulled pork, are listed as not containing wheat or other gluten. Most sides also don't have gluten. Brisket is smokey, fork tender, & tasty.

BBQ sauce is gluten free, meat is gluten free and they will change gloves and use a clean cutting board and knife. Corn on the cob and baked potatoes are gluten free as well as the blue bell ice cream for dessert. One of our favorites!

They have good food and will pull out a list at the register to guide you on what you can eat. Try the turkey. It is moist and one of the best we have eaten.

Never had a bad reaction here with any meat. Make sure to let them know you're Celiac. Great place to get breakfast "tacos" in a cup!

This location has always been great with my gluten restrictions. I'm celiac and haven't gotten sick once, and I visit frequently. They are knowledgeable about gf items and have a gf list/menu for review. They will even get a new cutting board if asked.

My daughter had the turkey, corn on the cob ( which was over cooked for our taste ), and beans! No issues and the turkey was very good! The gave us a list of things that were ok, and things to avoid! Managers were very helpful with questions. Brisket, Turkey was very good and sauces all GF!!!

I went one year and got the pulled pork no bread and BBQ sauce, and potatoe salad. I got sick. This time I got chicken and coleslaw and BBQ sauce. I got so sick I had to go to the doctor.

Do Not eat here!!! I became severely ill within 10 minutes of swallowing my first bite. This is Not a gluten free friendly restaurant. Other locations have decent reviews but I would warn to not eat at any of them.

Great BBQ. Nice to be able to eat real BBQ. As always say you have an allergy. They carved the meat on a separate cutting board! Potato salad was fantastic.

I've eaten here several times with no issues. I've stuck to the meats and been just fine. Delicious BBQ and friendly service. Their sauces are GF as well.

Very good BBQ. All meats and rubs they use are certified GF. Coleslaw and potato salad also GF. If you're new they give you a sample of their turkey, lean brisket, and what they call their wet brisket (more fatty). Lean brisket and turkey were great. No sample on other meats because they are not sliced items. They offer wheat sliced bread only, so be prepared to eat the meats without bread.Sauce is a little too sweet for me and there is only one variety. Friendly service.

Allergen list is available on their website, and most items are gf. Their bbq sauces are gf. Tasty, basic Texan bbq.

Unfortunately I also have allergies to spy and cow's milk. The online ingredient list did not reveal that soy is in the dry rub used on all meats. A long drive for no meal. I did not go further than the front cashiers stand so I do not know about potential cross contamination or any other issues.

I love bbq and I'm glad that they have so many gf options. The cashiers are friendly and helpful. If they aren't sure about something being gluten free, their managers are.
