I've been to BBQ places all over the country, from the rural south, Georgia, Carolinas, Florida, Louisiana... and Tom Jenkins is probably some of the best I've ever eaten. The brisket is outstanding, the ribs are out of this world, the chicken is just... indescribable....More

Can't say for sure. Haven't seen anything on the menu or in the restaurant about gluten free options. Go to the Contact Us section of their website and ask directly. They have a FB page too. Good luck!
